These postcards feature prints of original art works by Pat Cruse of Shoogly Beads.

This is a set of 2 'Thistle' pictures.....a favourite subject in all lights from all angles!
1. Pastels on soft brown pastel paper.
2. White chalk sketch on black paper.

The 'Thistle' is a south Norwegian fishing boat that ended up in the North East of Scotland after being used by 4 Norwegians in an amazing escape from Norway during the 2nd World War.
After many years as a fishing boat the poor old Thistle ended up almost fading away at Johnshaven harbour. Recently she was gifted to the Norwegian people and will return to her homeland soon. A happy ending at last.

This is a link to a newspaper article in the Scotsman for those who are interested.. http://www.scotsman.com/the-scotsman/the-arts/alistair-harkness/the_last_voyage_of_the_thistle_1_2101031

The original sketches are done in soft pastel on pastel drawing paper and are not for sale.

You can use these as a traditional postcards but we like to think you'll want to frame them! The postcards will be signed on the back by the artist.

Our postcards are professionally produced on 350gsm cardstock and have a gloss laminate finish.

Measures approx 15 x 10.5cms.
