Notes

"Tommy Skeen, like his wife Millie, manages to convey a dream-like quality in his work. In this painting we confront Tommy's traditional country, which he paints often. Here, however, there is a strong interplay between colour and light that involves a carnival atmosphere." (J. Cowan, op.cit. p. 62)
