Oil on board 50.8 x 40.64 centimetres
The suggestion for this painting comes from a statue perched behind the seats in the Guest House Inn, Union Street, Southport. (Named Best Cask Ale pub in national awards run by Star Pubs & Bars)
Painted on the backing board from a glass fronted wooden frame, the type you buy to frame large family photographs. Carefully removing the backing board and glass, (placing the glass in a safe place as this is no longer required) I covered the backboard with several coats of Gesso before starting to paint using Winsors & Newton oils.
