We do love a crisp, sunny, winter dog walk. This picture, a 1960s Athena original print on board, really captures the scene & atmosphere.
It’s on its way to our antiques centre pitch – one of those items that’s hard to part with, but we’ve had the pleasure of living with it for a long time. Having said that, it might never make it – it’s stalled near the front door as we give it admiring glances all over again.
It’s by artist Edward Ripley and is entitled Winter Morning. We’d really like to view the original oil – anyone of you out there own it?!!
You can sense that there’s real texture to the paint, particularly in the snowy fields.
The image is so strong though that it still makes a fabulous print!
