Footnotes

  • As Sarah Hudleston remarks of a related work, Pennies from Heaven (1980), "a theme of wish-fulfillment, dreams coming true and heavingly rewards showering from the sky are the basis of a number of paintings like this, produced over a number of years. They reflect the power of hope in the face of great poverty and deprivation in the artist's community".
