A Chilly Morning
Martin Whittam

Artwork

I am not an art critic, but this original picture conjurs up just the effect that my wife appreciates. She loves snowy scenes and naive art both. Great Christmas present

Service

Great website, selling original works at an affordable price. Purchase efficiently dispatched, and a delight when received. The packing tube did leave the picture rather tightly rolled, so it was difficult to straighten for the frame. Excellent other than this minor niggle.
