Scotland. Country of untamed highlands, majestic bens, glimmering lochs and hidden glens. The land of the mighty stag, exquisite whiskies, tartans and a courageous people with a heritage of heroes and heroines. The 'St Andrew's Day Blessing' is a celebration of Scotland and an original by the artist, completed in November 2020. It features a blessing for Scotland in beautiful Celtic calligraphy within a traditional Pictish knotwork pattern border. A simple illustration of the Saltire, or Scottish flag of St Andrew, completes this artwork.
'A St Andrew's Day Blessing' would make a very special gift for anyone who holds Scotland close to their heart, in celebration of St Andrew's Day, Christmas, a birthday or simply to show your appreciation for them.

The printing is done at the Southside Rehabilitation Association (SRA) Copyshop, a local charity rehabilitating adults recovering from mental health issues into the workplace. Every sale therefore benefits SRA.
The 9 x 11" frame is bought at the local A & S HomeCare store in West Norwood which sources them from The Ready Made Picture Frame Company workshop in Basingstoke, 55 miles from Abundare. This is important to Abundare for two reasons: one, each sale supports local business and two, because of its close proximity, Abundare's carbon footprint is much reduced.
