Frame 50cm x 62cm
When Giles married his second wife Hilary, they spent their honeymoon at Luckwell Bridge, a secluded place on Exmoor.
This painting has a particular cosy warmth which suggests that it might well have been created on the honeymoon, which might explain why Giles was specific that it was NOT FOR SALE, although he was proud of it. ST IVES is written on the frame, presumbaly because it was exhibited there.
From the estate of the artist TONY GILES.
