Artwork Description


"The Band Played Waltzing Matilda"


This painting was painted on ANZAC day 2020 and is named after the Eric Bogle song of the same name.


The lyrics to this song are just so powerful and moving...


"When I was a young man I carried me pack
And I lived the free life of the rover
From the Murray's green basin to the dusty outback
I waltzed my Matilda all over
Then in 1915 my country said: Son,
It's time to stop rambling, there's work to be done
So they gave me a tin hat and they gave me a gun
And they sent me away to the war


And the band played Waltzing Matilda
When the ship pulled away from the quay
And amid all the tears, flag waving and cheers
We sailed off for Gallipoli..."


The red poppies signify the loss of servicemen and women, and the purple poppies signify the loss of service animals.


Lest We Forget


This piece comes finished in a pine box frame which adds about another 1 - 1.5cm to the overall dimensions of the painting listed below, is painted on a gallery wrapped canvas and has been sealed with varnish.
