This lovely painting was commissioned by myself as a possible contender for the front cover of my latest book. It was pipped at the post when I chose Pathfoot cottages instead, but the painting is worth sharing here and very beautiful in its own right. The scene is the Auchentibber Inn during 1908. Landlord JBH Struthers was the owner and the Inn had just been fully renovated. The painting was done by my friend, Mr. Rob Thorpe who has provided paintings for all my book covers in the “Journey In Time” series.
The scene is tranquil and I thought very much worth sharing with you all. I have set aside the actual painting for use in a future book.
