I want to tell of my mate Max,
with his brush, his paints, and board,
painting yarns of his droving days gone by.

He’s a person with a passion,
for the bush, red dirt, and scenes,
showing hardships of the drovers and their wives.

Painting towns of dirt and dust,
filled with horses, trains and pubs,
He can illustrate a story of the time.

From his Kenthurst Sandstone Church,
you will find him day and night,
sitting back behind an easel made from pine.

Mixing colours on a palette,
to make the contrast on the canvas,
takes a talent grown with age and skill and passion.

Making magic with a paintbrush,
bringing characters to life,
with boots and whips and hats and horses is the fashion.

Now, not all can have a painting,
with the dedication of our Max,
hanging on their wall for all their friends to view.

Cause it takes a special person,
with an eye for artistic talent,
to appreciate the value that’s true blue.
