The House That I Grew Up In…

Margaret's Classic Posts

2008_03020220This is a painting I did about eight years ago of the house that I grew up in. It was located quite near the city of Sydney, and wasn’t far from a very busy thoroughfare. Its most impressive feature, to my young mind, was the staircase that led from the street to the front verandah. Sometimes, at night, we would sit outside and look up at the moon and stars. We seemed to be quite high off the street. Funny how age changes our perceptions…

Sadly, the house was demolished a few years ago.

    I love those houses with big porches and steps up from the street. Great ironwork fences. It all matches
