'Huts' is a good quality, signed giclée print of a painting of the seaside town of Herne Bay in Kent by Canterbury artist David Weeks. Colourful and quirky, the image celebrates the vibrancy of the seaside town's beach huts. It also depicts the town's pier, clock tower and Reculver in the distance and pays homage to Amy Johnson who set the record of 19 days flying from Croydon to Australia in her bi-plane. 'Jason'. She tragically died years later off the Herne Bay coast when the plane she was flying came down in a snowstorm. The time depicted on the clock, 3:30, was the last time anyone saw her alive, a lonely figure drifting down towards the sea on a parachute. There is a statue to her memory on the sea front promenade. Also depicted in the print are three sailing boats and three seagulls, one of whom has caught an unfortunate goldfish!
This print, which has been placed in a cream mount ready for putting in a frame, will make a great addition to any wall. It is oblong-shaped and hangs horizontally. Size (including the mount): 10 inches width x 8 inches height (25.5 cm x 20.5 cm).
Please note that colours and tones may slightly differ according to monitor/screen types, etc.
