Inspiration

This mixed media keepsake, is a print on a vintage postcard to commemorate the anniversary of Dylan Thomas last year and includes a 'stamp' of a larger piece of work. I also overprinted two lino cut date stamps, one on the back of the postcard and one on the envelope.

The lino cut print of the swallow was distressed to make it look of the era and is an interpretation of a line in Thomas' poem Fern Hill and is titled Swallow of Starred Wells.
