Do we actually have Indian summer in North Yorkshire Dales? No, not really. We don’t even have enough trees to get a reasonable Indian summer here, I guess.
So, what is it about? It is about an impossible place where Great Smoky Mountains meet North Yorkshire Dales because in art everything IS possible.
Go and visit Marrick Priory, or Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and you may see a view like this... or you may not... because this is partly my imagination and partly reality. However, enjoy your walks between Reeth and Richmond, or take the Appalachian Trail instead, and love this painting :-)
I have painted on a very sturdy double-sheet (two sheets on top of each other glued by gesso - so it is a substantial material; more like board than paper) of Hahnemuele mould-made, acid free, age resistant paper (450 g/square meter, 210lbs) using artists quality acrylic paints. The painting is varnished three times to protect it from airborne pollutants and UV damage.
The painting comes with my certificate of authenticity.
The painting is mounted, and the mounted dimensions are 40 x 30 cm (~16 x 12 inch) fitting in regular frames of this size.
