Uxbridge Lock: Watercolour

Uxbridge Lock

Welcome to the grand opening of my online Arts and Crafts shop!

I painted this small watercolour in 2002 and sold it to The Marine Engineer and The Original Boatwife. who were moored near to me in Uxbridge at the time. I have done very few canal related paintings so this one is quite rare. I love the vibrant colours and the memories that it evokes of all the lovely boaty friends that I had in the area. Uxbridge is a town on the north west outskirts of London and has a real community of narrowboaters, both permanently moored and those passing through.

An 8" x 6" canvas print of this painting is small enough to hang in any narrowboat, or could fill a niche in the house of someone who just loves the waterways. Like all good paintings it is a conversation starter, perhaps igniting discussions of lazy days by canals and the fact that you stumbled upon it quite by accident while reading The Real Life of a Narrowboat Wife.

"When I saw this image I was really struck by it. It struck a chord with me because I like the great outdoors, especially trees and water. So combining the two was like visual catnip to me! I immediately wanted to have it and put it on my wall so that I could look at it and be transported. I also got it as a present for the room a visitor was staying in, and they remarked on it straightaway. I just knew they would like it too - and I was right!" Patrick, London

Be first! At the moment there are only a handful of these canvas prints in existence. If you'd like a little window into my world on your wall this is the painting you are looking for.
