This Ramon Ward-Thompson (New Zealander/Australian, b. 1941) is exceptional, i my opinion. Look at the subjects in the lower middle right; an adult and young girl. The girl is carrying a bucket. Her hair is in pigtails, and their dog is next to them. Since I love clouds and "the country", and the subjects are so small and yet detailed, this immediately appealed to me. This is a large painting. It deserves a special place on your gallery wall. Mr. Ward-Thompson's paintings are being sold in galleries in New Zealand and Australia for prices in the $6000 to $8000 range. I expect his work to continue to rise in price here in the future.
