'Riverside in Spring'1989
10" diameter x 10" high
This is a view of the River Ribble at Sawley in the beautiful Ribble Valley in Lancashire, with the Spread Eagle Hotel in the background.
This design has always been one of my best-selling greetings cards and the original Batik that the cards were produced from, a back-lit picture. As a companion to this spring scene, I have also designed an autumn version.
Batik is best lit from behind because of the translucent qualities of the wax-impregnated cloth. Lampshades are a perfect and simple way of displaying my work. The colours have a wonderful depth to them and you have a work of art that's useful too!
