This is a lovely child’s work. We felt it would have more impact than professionally commisioned advertising posters or pages in magazines. Put so simply it says, “Just Do It!”
It has 1659 painted on as a date. If its not an addition then it is the oldest work we have restored and framed. You can see, it has at one time been in an oval surround. A lot of the shining gold decortation on the garment was almost obscured. Cleaning has revealed it. The frame is not so old; about 1900 maybe. And the gold slip is modern.
Another work from Sian (sianmcgill.com) one of many she is exhibiting in North Wales (somewhere) through most of August 2019. Uncomplicated English Ash frame with a grey wash that lets the grain show through, mounted with a 35mm border on Soft White.
Not much room to move about in here at the moment. A lot of interesting work coming through.
