A framed and signed limited edition giclee on paper by Nigel Mason, as part of his Vignettes collection for spring 2017.
Inspired by his childhood in 1950s Yorkshire, Nigel has created a collection of nostalgic, evocative paintings that capture observations of life, from the mundane to the profound.
He says: "This series of four editions could be seen as an exploration of relationships at seminal moments of life: childhood, youth, adulthood and maturity.
"This painting explores the purest happiness of childhood. We have all had the dream of being in a sweet shop and having the pick of anything we want. There are no parents involved; we have complete autonomy, and seem only to exist in a world of children.
"This dream is the expression of the ultimate sensual pleasure available to us at this stage in our lives, along with the love we bear for our special friend."
