Winter is drawing to a close. The long dark nights are becoming a thing of the past. As the sun rises up and announces the coming of new life, the seasons change and we move forward into springtime.
We are celebrating the coming of the new season with the launching of a series of Giclee prints taken from an original mixed media painting, Arise, by our very own Gail Dixon.
The painting itself depicts the sun rising up above a Hilltop bringing light, colour and life to the community that nestles beneath it.
The prints are available in a variety of sizes unmounted, mounted or framed. Mounted or framed prints come signed by Gail.
Framed prints will be framed by hand in our own workshop using our bespoke picture framing service using locally grown wood
You can find Arise, as well as prints of Gail’s other work, here.
