Gun Totin’ Orphans

Growing up, these two identical paintings hung in the corridor outside my bedroom.  And it never once occurred to me that they were of gun toting orphans.  I just loved them.  And oh the Ryan-Gosling’s-biceps sized crush that I had on the artist friend of my parents who had painted them.  He was a red head (kids, that’s what we used to call gingers), and wore veldskoens long before they were a thing.

A few months ago Joel and I asked my parents if we could hang onto the paintings for a while, and oh happy day they said yes.  They are called ‘The Shadow : A shock of guns’ and the artist is Walter Hayn.

In other news, it’s been a good week for neck adornments, with this new bunting necklace (from Sass Diva) also wandering onto my jewellery holder.  Two Frock Pics posts in one week, good gravy.

Thanks Joelie Joel for taking these photos.

    As kids we used to stand in front of them and try to spot differences. A brush stroke here and there but otherwise, identical.
