Westgrove Pantry Ransacked

Watercolour on Arches 640 gsm,

Artist Inspiration

May 23, 1902 saw Paddy and Jim, on the run.
Destitute as the land, and their horses, they needed water and food.
Late in the night they raided the pantry at Westgrove, plucked what they wanted from the saddle room, and took new mounts from the horse paddock while the family slept. Young William Jackson did wake, and seeing a man outside simply thought it was Harding who often worked at night.
His question, “Is that you Harding?” was met with a quiet “Umm”.
William went back to sleep.
