ARTIST ::: Gary Bunt

Gary Bunt has such an endearing style of painting that drew me in. Add to that wonderful bouts of poetry to companion each piece, and you will be won over too.

Happy Anniversary
20 x 24" Oil on canvas

Once every year
They come up here
Looking down
On the house where they live
He worked all his life
For his dog, kids and wife
And still he's got love to give

The Harbour Cat
40 x 48" Oil on canvas

The cat sat on the window sill
Looking at the fish
He thought to himself
How nice would it be
If they were in my dish
