The lost

A lost friend, in better times. Image painted by Roger Felton, and featured on a greeting card sold at Walsall Leather Museum.

I was recently given this lovely image, which formed a greeting card purchased at Walsall Leather museum. Roger Felton has painted a gorgeous watercolour of the old BOAK building in Walsall, sadly lost to the arsonist’s zippo over the summer.

Roger is a notable local artist and a brilliant one at that; if you’re looking for cards this year that are a little bit different and a little bit local, there’s a tip for you, right there. I believe this one to be part of a series available. Some of his work is also available on eBay.
