nancy's book

from 10.00

I was lucky enough to grow up on a remote farm with a huge library. When I wasn't hauling wood or climbing trees I was reading. Always reading.  I am so grateful to all the wonderful relatives who bequeathed their generous book collections to my mother.

because of books I grew up in in the 1890s, the 1920s and the 1950s: L M Montgomery, L M Alcott, Frances Hodgson Burnett,  Nancy Mitford, Graham Green, E.M.Forster,  Dodie Smith, Evelyn Waugh... TSomany writers who brought to life stories within in crumbling estates, or crumbling psyches... all looking for meaning and connection.

This painting is called Nancy's Book. Nancy reads in her special place, where pens, plants, flowers and a magnificent giant white cat keep her company as she reads. Outside the rain pours down and the sky is a deep grey over the old oak tree. Ivy creeps its way in the window jams, creeping across the walls.

Nancy is dressed beautifully in her shirt, navy kit jumper and tweed skirt, but you can tell she is having a home day because she is wearing big bright red and white spotted socks. 

This is a print of the original watercolour painting by Claire and is available in three sizes; small (A5), medium (A4) and large (A3). Each print is made from a high resolution image of the original painting and the image is as big as will fit comfortably with a border for framing.

All our prints are on archival papers and inks designed not to fade for 100+ years and are signed by the artist.

We are happy to provide free postage within Australia and flat rate of $8 international postage.

Thank you for your interest in our art!
