Most Australians don’t know the words to our national anthem but know all the words to Waltzing Matilda.
A variant on that folksong and a war protest song is
“The band played Waltzing Matilda” by Eric Bogle.
This piece is called “And their ghosts may be heard as they march by that billabong.” ((C) Anita Morris 2003) It’s inspired by the second song. The sunset imagery is a direct reference to the badge worn by the Australian Army.
The next two fridays I intend to have some more war protest oil pastel drawings to share.
Price $300. Contact Anita Morris to buy.
