Artist's description:

Thank you for taking the time to look at my painting. I am delighted it caught your eye!

The Swan & Cygnets theme was inspired by an early morning walk along the Regent's Canal near London Zoo with my mother. The swans and their babies looked so peaceful and being there with my mum whom I love very much, made me smile at the little cygnets games with their parents. I find animal childhood a bittersweet, precious state because a lot of grown animals do not stay with their families but go off to make their own. I tried to capture that fleeting state of little chicks still dependent on their elders but also eagerly looking ahead to adventures and new horizons.

This piece is one of only a handful of Mosaic Paintings done on stretched Belgian linen rather than the usual high grade cotton. To create this painting I used top grade artist's acrylics by the American company Golden and the German brand Schminke. The piece is protected with UV filtering varnish and comes ready to hang with D-rings and wire across the back. The painting can be hung as is, because the pattern continues around all sides. However if you wish to add a frame to this artwork, I would recommend a light to medium grey tray frame. I make these frames by hand myself, so please get in touch to discuss.

"Swan & Cygnets II" is signed on the front and is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. When the time comes to send you your new treasure, it will be protected by acid free archival paper, bubble wrap, cardboard, polythene sheeting, packaging paper and high visibility red and white "Fragile" tape. Safe and secure!

International taxes and duty fees are currently the responsibility of the buyer.
