Grandma House

Looking at Leslie Grandma house painting makes me wanted to share mine too. This is a sketch i done on the house which is located at Samarahan district. The area is kind of swampy therefore ideal for coconut and cocoa plantation and this are the type of job my grandma do. It’s a tought job but she was a tough lady and may God bless her soul. Although the house no longer there, swallowed by the jungle and so are the plantation but my child hood memories still quit vivid. I can still imagine myself listening to the wild pigeon singing, stream flowing nearby and the mud skipper happily sun bathing under the coconut bridge and not forgetting the evergreen fauna. Nowadays most houses are built on bricks and machinery take over labourers task, the good old days are gone.

Hope you like the sketch
