Tied to the Tank by Tom Brennan

In this piece, local artist Tom Brennan utilizes his talent as a painter to highlight a situation many Down East residents are sadly familiar with. Tom writes of this particular piece: “An elderly couple in their window after a snowstorm taking care of their geraniums. This is titled TIED TO THE TANK because, in addition to their aged fuel tank tied to the house with an old dog leash, these poor folks are also ‘tied to their tank.’  See the smoke going up the chimney? That's their very meager social security.”
