24" x 24" original oil painting on pre-stretched, deep edge canvas. 

Farm living in a very remote area, miles from civilisation meant that receiving guests was a big event.  A visit always followed the same pattern… a call was made, the estimate time of arrival was shared and then followed the extended waiting.  Till today I remember waiting with great anticipation for the first sign of dust lifting from the gravel roads in the distance, like smoke signals signalling the approach of the long-awaited guests.

Long awaited visitor
