My painting Boy in boat was painted from a memory from my childhood, taking our rowboat for my first “sail”. an old canvas sheet was hoisted up a sapling and with 1 oar used as a rudder I set off down the Wooli river to the Mouth.
This photo was taken just prior to Xmas 1960, after a trip up the river to collect Christmas bush to decorate our home.Thats me down near the motor.
My solo trip down the river was sometime the next year as our boat was runover and destroyed by a runaway landrover vehicle not long after this.
