One of my graphic style paintings, this one depicting a wishing tree or Clouty tree as they are known in Cornwall. They are usually near to Holy Wells and the idea is to make a wish and tie a piece of cloth around a branch and then when the cloth rots the wish comes true. You see many pieces of kitchen towel around them these days. The idea being, it will rot quicker than cloth and so your wish will be granted sooner. The trees also have dream catchers, beaded necklaces and bracelets and even written messages on them. Comes unframed with a 10mm border. Will fit an A4 size photo frame.
