SO VERY HAPPY
Kenneth E Hunt,
Fellow Artist & Father

The painting you see is of my Father age 89 he is now 90 and living a quiet life in a wonderful age care facility in Emerald, Victoria, five minutes from my house.
I have captured an image of him with an equally old pussy cat, all warm and cosy on a cold winter’s day. This happens every Saturday afternoon and both look for each other. My Father has been a very good artist and has been my inspiration for what I do as an artist today. To me, he is a great and deserving subject.
