Paintings of the Tyne Bridges always strike a cord with folk from the North East. The charity The Cyrenians based in Newcastle work with vulnerable, disadvantaged and homeless people. earlier this year Sian Thomas, their marketing administrator, asked if they could use some of my paintings as Christmas Cards to help raise money for the charity which has been going for over 40 years.
This original watercolour of Newcastle’s bridges and quayside caught in a snow shower is the third painting which about to be scanned, ready to be reproduced as a charity Christmas card. All three paintings, including this one of the Tyne Bridges, can be seen at my Studio and Gallery in Ponteland from next week.
