We will be opening the shop for one day on Friday the 15th December. All welcome! If you ordered a wreath at the open weekend, they will be available for collection that day, too. There may even be a festive mince pie on offer!
This is a stunning original oil painting of a sunny, classic British country scene. Beautifully captured in an impressionist style, the feeling of dappled spring sunshine is so wonderfully portrayed. The trees on the left have a blossom-filled feel and the colours used are just gorgeous, particularly the shaded road in the foreground, which is a lilac grey. Dating from the 1930s, the frame is original and there is an inscription on the back with an address in Ardoch Gardens, Cambuslang (Glasgow), and the title "A Pleasant Walk" Signed G Preston. One or two areas where the paint has thinned, but otherwise in great original vintage condition.
