Original Acrylic on Hardboard 122 x 61 cm, Framed size: 148 x 86cm Weight: 8Kg 

 

It was a very dry year in 1889, and lack of water made it very difficult to continue mining operations at Mount Britton. Charles Gibbard had just finished building a flash new hotel- the “Mount Britton Hotel” beside his old “Diggers Arms Hotel” at Mount Britton. However a gold rush had started up at Eungella Range, in the hills along Broken River about 30 miles as the crow flies from Mount Britton; so Charles Gibbard decided that prospects looked better on the new diggings at Eungella, so he transferred the licence of the new Mount Britton Hotel to his stepson; dismantled the “Diggers Arms Hotel”, and loaded the lot – timber, corrugated iron, and alcoholic beverages, onto three wagons. With each wagon being pulled by a team of fourteen horses, they started the difficult journey through scrub and grassland, negotiating logs, steep banks, dry sandy creek beds, and rugged ranges, for there was no road and the actual distance traversed was closer to 60 miles. In this painting one of the three horse teams is featured as they leave behind the peaks and mountain ranges that surround Mount Britton, and head off across the plains of Homevale Station; now  Homevale National Park.

Beautifully framed with an wide inner slip frame of cream with a warm blush to a raised gold inner edge, which highlights the warm light within the painting. The traditional outer frame has a deeply curved profile of natural stained timber ,that suits the historic period of the painting, as well as the natural warm, gold and brown tones of the subjects within the painting.
