Description

Blank greetings card printed on Premium quality Century Soho 300 gsm card stock, sourced from sustainable forestry and FSC certified, with white paper envelope.

Size approx. 150mm (6") square.

This square card is hinged at the left-hand side and protected by a cellophane wrapper.

Blank inside for your own greeting, with a small copy of the image and descriptive text on the back of the card.

This card features a painting of a great spotted woodpecker, originally created as an illustration of the character Jimmy the Entertainer for my children's book "The Magical Midwinter Star" in the Adventures of Algy series. It includes a quotation from JImmy's song "The Tap-a-Way".

A larger A5 greetings card of Jimmy the Entertainer, without text on the front, is also available.

Reproduced from an original painting by Jenny Chapman, © 2016.

Inspiration

Jimmy the Entertainer is a great spotted woodpecker whose role in life is to entertain and cheer people up. He does a crazy tapping dance while chanting his song "The Tap-a-Way", and is a colourful character in my children's book "The Magical Midwinter Star" in the Adventures of Algy series.

Great spotted woodpeckers can sometimes be seen in areas of woodland on the Ardnamurchan peninsula, but are more often heard tapping than actually observed... The distinctive mossy log on which Jimmy is perching in this image lay across a boggy piece of ground in a patch of coniferious forest which has now been felled, so it serves as a memento of a scene which has vanished.

The original painting from which this card is reproduced was created with Winsor and Newton professional watercolour paints and watercolour sticks, and Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer watercolour pencils on Fabriano Artistico HP watercolour paper.
