The Jobs of Yesteryear are thought-provoking conversation pieces that will bring an air of history and whimsy to any room.

Before the widespread use of electricity, streets of most towns and cities were lit by gas lamps. These lamps had to be lit as dusk turned to dark and extinguished as the day's light filled the morning sky. The Lamplighter was responsible for these tasks and typically employed either a long pole, ladder or tall customized bicycle, which is the way I would done it.

The original painting was created on stained birch wood panel using only three colors of acrylic paint, which gives the work a monochromatic theme of warm greys and creams and have the feel of a black and white photograph steeped in history. The long limbed characters are crafted using hundreds of hand-torn bits of kraft paper collaged on top of watercolor paper and painted with an acrylic wash. The technology or innovation that led to the job becoming obsolete is included in each painting.
