Do what you feel strongest about and that’s where your passion will lie. You need to be true to yourself.
The Rock Butcher, Tim Driscoll
by Raeleen Pfeffer
This lino print depicts the butcher from The Rock, Tim Driscoll.
I see him on a semi regular basis in the butchery. He is always friendly and courteous.
I wanted to encapsulate the landscape and the local identity in the town of The Rock. His family is well respected in The Rock community.
I had exhibited this piece in The Spirit of the Land and its People Award in Lockhart, and won.
If you look closely in the beard there are sheep and cattle grazing and a small landscape at the base including The Rock Hill to the bottom left.
