A chip off the old block

8″ x 6″

Michael John Hunt’s painting transports viewers into a rustic setting inside an old wooden shed. Dominating the scene, an aged workbench bears the weight of a weathered chair, seemingly awaiting repair with its worn-out legs and tattered upholstery. Around the bench, several old stools and scattered wooden remnants lie haphazardly, each telling tales of years gone by and projects left undone. The play of light from a hidden source casts gentle shadows, emphasizing the textures of the wood and hinting at countless stories of craftsmanship. The entire composition exudes a quiet sense of history, abandonment, and the passage of time.
