I recently spent a couple of weeks visiting my brother, Paul in the Yorkshire Dales.  He's just moved to a beautiful village called Reeth.  I can highly recommend the place for those who love the countryside and walking in it. 

On one day during my visit we went for a long walk and as we ascended up toward Framington Edge we passed up a gorgeous pathway edged by two dry stone walls. The fields and copses here are surrounded by these walls, like veins across the landscape.  Half way up there was a hawthorn tree, jagged and full of white flowers.  I stood on top of the wall and took a quick sketch and a photo, the light was perfect, across the landscape and meadows strewn with buttercups. 

I felt extremely at ease during this walk, that is something to be grateful for and it is with that sentiment that I later painted this piece. 

The cost includes exceptional quality framing, dry mounted (meaning the painting remains completely flat forever), art glass (thick UV reflective glass ensuring the painting doesn't fade), mounted and framed with the best materials.  Close from Natural Oak, Limed Oak, Dark Stained Oak or White Washed Wood (my favourite!). 

Of course, if you'd prefer to frame the painting yourself then the cost is reduced.
