The Standing and the Fallen

After the Ice Storm, Salem Oregon, Painting by Jenny Armitage

The Standing and the Fallen (16 x 23 watercolor) $1200 framed; $1000 unframed

This Spring Salem, Oregon had back to back ice storms leading to many downed trees and branches.  While I mourn many of the trees lost, nature’s thinning does have it’s compensations.  One of those is that woods around our house, are an entirely new place, while still remaining beautiful.  This lit up hillside was dark, tangled,  and mossy just months ago.  Now it is bright and open.

The Bridge in Our Wake (watercolor 15 x 19) $1000 framed; $900 unframed

This is the beautifully rural Llangollen Canal, near Llangollen, Wales.  As you can see from the wake, I took the reference photos for this painting looking back over the stern of our little narrowboat.   To be ridiculously specific, this Bridge 36W looking back towards Trevor Basin on the last leg of our journey to Llangollen itself.  Its idyllic up there.

The Bones of Dinas Bran, Original Watercolor Painting by Jenny Armitage

The Bones of Dinas Bran (watercolor 19 x 23) $1200 framed; $1000 unframed

This  is bits and pieces of what’s left of Castell Dinas Bran, sometimes referred to as  Crow’s Fortress or Crow Castle.  The castle was probably built  sometime in the 1260s by Gruffydd II ap Madog, making it the only Welsh Castle we visited to actually have been built by the Welsh.   The castle is now an evocative ruin perched on the hilltop above Llangollen.

We walked a mile or so up to see it after having moored within sight of it the night before.  It’s a powerful sight whether seen from above or below.

Framed in copper-brown brushed metal with a white mat.

Late Afternoon Denbighshire, Original Landscape by Jenny Armitage

Late Afternoon Denbighshire (watercolor 17 x 23) framed $1100; unframed $1000

We are just back from a narrowboating trip on the Llangollen Canal in North Wales.  Paradoxically, we spent much of our week’s boat rental walking on dry land both along the canal and into the countryside.  This particular walk was along part of the Offa’s Dyke Path just a few miles west of Chirk Marina.  The typical slate farmhouse in the mid-ground was visible for most of our late afternoon walk. 

Framed in brushed pewter metal frame with white mat.
