'PORTRUSH RNLI LIFEBOAT' Giclée Print
The Royal National Lifeboat Institute has always been close to my heart and to help raise funds for Portrush RNLI, I created this image of the current Portrush RNLI Lifeboat William Gordon Burr using a variety of media including collage, fusing, layering and embellishment with both machine and hand-stitching.
This item is a fine art, museum quality giclee print of the original artwork on heavyweight cotton rag paper using archival inks. It has been signed by Frankie and comes unframed, in a cellophane envelope with backing card.
The original artwork was auctioned to raise funds for Portrush RNLI.
- Museum quality, fine art giclée print of an original painting.
- Printed on heavyweight cotton rag paper using archival inks.
- Artist's postcard included.
- Signed by Frankie Creith.
