Artist's description:

This is one in a series of works on A4 card that I recently completed. This one depicts a girl checking her "Clouty" which she has tied to the tree. You can see such trees near holy wells and ancient monuments throughout Cornwall. The idea is to tie a piece of cotton material to the tree and make a wish. When the rag falls from the tree through decay the wish will be granted. People also tie dream catchers and other personal items including letters and jewellery to these trees. Comes ready to frame with a 10mm border.

Materials used:

Acrylics and non fade ink on card.
