Break In The Clouds Over Grasmere

This is a painting based on a view I see almost every week around the fells of Grasmere looking across from the main road to Helm Crag and Steel Fell.
During the Summer (*) Grasmere lives up to its name which is believed to derive from the Norse for grass lake or lake surrounded by grass.
There's a lot of that green stuff around and as any self-respecting artist or photographer knows it can although beautiful be visually boring when it comes to capturing the scene. Green grass, green trees, green, green everywhere!!!
That said though every now and again on a stormy day when a shaft of bright sunlight hits the side of the fells in that area you get a magical moment where that greens comes into it's own and gives you something spectacular! This was one such day!
(* Summer [Definition] - Refers collectively to those mysterious unsettling periods of time where it briefly stops raining sometimes for longer than 24 hours. Occasionally accompanied by a slight increase in temperature, an increase in midgees and the aroma of burnt steak or sausages. Predicted to happen sometime between May and August when most of us are at work. On very special years when the planets are aligned this phenomenon can be witnessed on a weekend or even a bank holiday although this is very, very rare)

Want Your Purchase Framed?

 So you have picked out the perfect image for your wall but you can’t just hang it on the wall with drawing pins can you?…No, so now you have to go and get it framed. Not only do you have to go to the hassle of finding a good framer who knows what they are doing but then you have to pick out a moulding you like and a mount to go with it. You need to pick something that is going to enhance the art but also look good in your space and then because you are only getting one frame you will pay through the nose for it! 

Well here’s an idea…….

….Why not just have me frame it for you!…..FREE OF CHARGE!!

That’s right I offer a 100% FREE framing service where all you pay for is the cost of the frame itself – how cool is that?!

I use high quality light-ash wood frames that provide a neutral high quality finish that will enhance rather than detract from the artwork and will sit well in any room.  The frames are bare-faced which means if you don’t happen to like the colour of the natural wood in the frame you can change it to suit your taste with either stain, lime-wash, paint or varnish. As I purchase my frames in bulk and pass this discount on you won’t get a frame of this quality anywhere else at this price! It’s a no brainer really!

So if you have chosen an original and want it framed just choose the framed option in the options above. If you are purchasing a limited edition you can add a frame to your order by clicking the button below:
