Hand Painted Banana Card, original art

Hand Painted Banana Card, original art
£14.00 1 Available
Love this


Hand painted using inks, watercolour and pencils.

This is not a print, but an original piece of art, making it unique.

Treat it gentle-ish, so as not to smudge.

It measures 10.5cms x 14.5cms, and comes with a recycled envelope. Frame not included.

It is blank inside for your own message.

I have listed it as a Mother's Day Card, but really it could just as easily be a New Baby Card, or a Get Well Soon Card, or pretty much any occasion. Just as good as for him, as for her.

UK First Class Signed For delivery is included in the price. Overseas prices are for Royal Mail International Tracked and Signed. If you live outside of the EU you may be charged Customs Duties in accordance with your country's laws.

I make hard-core eco-friendly packaging. People tell me it always raises a smile with the Postie. You can see it on my Instagram feed, if you are interested. You will also find regular WIPs, contemporary art exhibition reviews and laughs, there.


I was inspired by Meghan Markle's banana messages in the newspapers last week.

At first I started stitching the banana, as usual, but then I got my art box out and began painting. I ended up with three one-off pieces. So you may get one a bit different to the one in the image. All three make unique gifts for him or her.

The image shown is from the Daily Telegraph.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to give me a shout.

Thank you,
