When I was a child I had the feeling that the whole town I lived in consisted of fences. It was quite common for everything to be locked when I was a child. I mean, things that could be surrounded by a fence. It was a time trend. People just loved to hide themselves behind a high fence. However, it was impossible to hide something from boys.

We had felt fences not as a barrier, but as an exciting sport event. We had asked ourselves: who would be the fastest to jump over a fence without hurting him- or herself anything? We did it like birds.

There was no fence in the world that couldn’t be beaten by us.


About this painting

I painted this picture, like all my other paintings using completely traditional methods. With the help of oil paints, canvas and his hands. Everything is absolutely traditional and natural. I have been doing this work for more than 30 years and doing quality. This applies not only to the manufacture, but also to the packaging of finished paintings. Even with poor delivery, my packages reach the buyer safe and sound.


This artwork will be packaged in a tube. Artworks are dispatched within 5 working days from Czechia. Each painting is accompanied by a certificate of origin, which I write out with my own hand.
