Buttercups and cottage, Happy valley
A limited edition print from an original watercolour painting by Orkney artist Jane Glue
printed on C-Type Matt
This picture was painted probably not long after Edwin Harrold who lived here, had left to be cared for in our local old folks home. The grass had not been cut for quite a while and the garden had turned a bit wild hence all the buttercups. I thought they made a good subject in a carpet of golden yellow. Today Happy Valley is cared for by a local trust of volunteers and anyone can visit it at anytime of year be it Spring like this day or another time of year.
