Singing around a Christmas tree in front of St Michael's Mount is the subject of this brilliant new canvas by artist John Dyer. Colourful scarves and hats, jelly tot boats and a sky full of stars evoke a real sense of warmth, community and spirit. The mount sits proudly against the night sky and seagulls soar into the night.
John Dyer: In the 1950s simple neutral frames became popular for St Ives artists. John chooses an off-white so the lightest tones appear in the painting. The moulding is a variation of 'Salvator Rosa' from Italy. Hand finished in almond white paint.
