Wold Cottage original painting by Jerry Armstrong

During a visit to the historic Wold Cottage with my family during Summer 2009 I took the following photograph of the monument with the Wold Cottage itself visible in the middle far right. This monument was erected by Sir Edward Topham in 1799 and marks the exact spot where the meteorite fell in 1795.

In 2010 i commisioned Jerry Armstrong to create an original painting based on this photograph and in January 2011 it was finally completed.

It is a 16″ by 20″ painting and the original will remain in my collection but Giclee prints are available from Jerry. I will also be donating a Giclee print of the painting to Derek and Katrina Gray to be displayed at the Wold Cottage.
