A limited edition print from an original watercolour painting by Orkney artist Jane Glue
printed on C-Type Matt paper in print run's of 100 of each size.

This picture was part of an exhibition that Canadian artist Sheena McCoogan and I did together in 2012 based around Dr John Rae's life called 'From Orkney to Canada'. This building was John Rae's childhood home at Clestrain in Stenness, Orkney. The jacket and Canadian blanket on the washing line represent his clothes. In the grass lies his fiddle and sledge from his travels in the arctic. I added the geese into the sky because on the day I visited the house they were flying overhead and I thought John Rae would have seen them too, here in Orkney and in the arctic. There are plans to re build the old house and develop a museum for John Rae in the future.
