Oils on hardboard size 18 x 24 inches..
this is not one of my paintings,it was signed KERRY 1962 and done with a pallette knife.
I bought it for £5 in my local junk shop.at first i thought it was rather crude but i grew to like it for its simple charm and the thick layers of paint with lovely colours,and composition.

Five Pounds was a deal--lot of work went into the painting especially just with palette knife--except the detail--will last forever...

Thanks Stephen,the unknown artist painted this on the reverse side of a piece of hardboard that had been used before and was in a old wooden frame like i used to make in the 1960's.

Alfred Wallis was the Cornish fisherman that used to paint with house paint onto pieces of cardboard that was used for shirts. The painting went for THOUSANDS!!!!!
