10" Slate Hanging Plates - Price £30.00
Whilst on holiday in the Lake District, we visited the slate mine at the top of Honister Pass. The slate was lovely and I thought about the possibility of painting on them. After some advice from a fellow artist, I took the plunge!
A very different surface to work on and quite a challenge, as the slates are not completely smooth, part of their attraction of course. I was delighted with the result and their popularity, selling three of my initial four designs on the first weekend at Brett Gallery, Monks Eleigh. This was immediately followed by an order for two more as Christmas presents and then the sale of the Kingfisher, Woodpecker, Sedge Warbler and Wren. The last one was my own particular favourite. Again, these all were sold through Brett Gallery. I am adding new designs to keep my range as comprehensive as possible and you will see that there are now nine different birds to choose from.
Great Spotted Woodpecker Nuthatches
Sedge Warbler Wren
Sparrow Blue Tit
Great Tit Common Tern
Robin on Tap Kingfisher with Berries
Wren on Hollyhock Waxwings with Berries
