Waiting for Godot by Roger Cummiskey

Title:   Waiting For Godot Artist:  Roger Cummiskey Medium:  Painting - Watercolor On Paper Description: I made this original painting to reflect the World famous play by Samuel Beckett, "Waiting for Godot".

Beckett specified the scenery as a tree, a country lane. The two characters in this painting are Vladimir (Didi) and Estragon (Gogo). They are waiting for a guy named Godot who never arrives.

"This is a council job," the interviewer replies, "for the first two hours we sit around scratching our point in you coming in for that."
