Our Caravan

This was something I’d been thinking about making for a long time. In fact it’s been a fair amount of time since I actually painted this piece. I made it as a Christmas present for my fiancé. We were considering buying the screen print shown above from Rheged’s Great Print Exhibition, when I said I could paint it myself. I instead intended to paint it with our own caravan home in mind. With a backdrop of Lake Ullswater, our caravan stands proud in it’s beautiful surroundings. The Great British Flag waves in the wind just like the American flag does in the print. The flag adds value to the painting, as for a time we’d been toying with the idea of emigrating to Australia. This painting translates as a big thumbs up to staying here in our English Home.
