Fundraising Auction for St Julia's Hospice

'Above Gulval' below, which will be auctioned alongside works by many other artists to raise  funds for St Julia's Hospice, at the Exchange Gallery, Penzance on Saturday 26 March, 2011.




This large painting, measuring approx 91 x 61 cm, shows two hawthorns - bent over by prevailing winds - growing in a hedge on the B3311 St Ives to Penzance road, high above the village of Gulval.  In fact, the central tree is no longer there, having blown/fallen over a couple of winters ago.  Rendered in acrylic and oil on canvas in a lime waxed wooden frame.


The painting has a modest estimate of £150/£200 with 50% of the selling price being donated to St Julia's.  Click to enlarge.

Hope that you will be able to come along on the night - there will definitely be something affordable to suit every taste and all in a very good cause too.

  5. This is so unlike your art that we know and love Lesley. Very beautiful but so different. Sad that the central tree is no longer there. I hope lots of money is raised in such a good cause. I had a look at the catalogue and they have some great artists including Breon O'Casey. He should make them a penny or two. Let us know how it goes. I wished I lived closer and could pop in for a look.
