An original oil painting on canvas by David Stead, now available as a beautiful limited edition print on deep profile, archival quality canvas measuring 97cm x 97cm. The print is limited to an edition of only 150 and comes with a certificate of authentication.

One of the first paintings to come out of David’s Shropshire studio. Central to the painting is All Saints parish church and the village of Clive on the west side of Grinshill Hill between Shrewsbury and the little market town of Wem in North Shropshire. Grinshill is where Charles Darwin (born and schooled in Shrewsbury) is reputed to have found his first fossil.

Really though, the painting is about the moment the sun breaks through towards evening after a day of rainstorms. It is a fleeting moment excentuated by the viewpoint – that of a passenger at a road junction. The roadsign shows us too that there is a bridge ahead – a railway bridge, adding to the sense of movement; of passing through, of transience.
