This picture is inspired by a true story, only a moustache has been added to proctect the innocent.
My Bampi (Grandad) used to love to help us around the house if something needed fixing. Much to my mothers dismay when he decided he wanted to fix our washing line and we found him shimmying (not sure how to spell that) up the top trying to fix it. He was in his late 60s possibly 70 at the time, and looked very shaky at the top. Luckily he made it down safely and fixed the washing line.
I love my Bampi he was such a character.
This was painted in acrylic paint with coloured pencil on the top, I love this combination of materials as it seems to make the picture really pop!
