A Well Preserved Painting: Blackcurrant Jam Trees & Marmalade Pavement

This painting, commissioned by a jam and preservative maker, was painted using only the products made in their factory!

Artist Lindi Kirwin was commissioned by F. Duerr & Sons a British Jam Maker to create a work of art to raise money for charity.

Sadly seeing as not many people have ever painted with jam and mint sauce before they have no idea how long it will last, so the winner will also get a full sized canvas print just in case.

Black current jam trees, marmalade pavements, mint sauce buildings and a tartar sauce sky all feature in a mouth watering new painting set to raise funds for The New Children’s Hospital Appeal.

F. Duerr & Sons, makers of jam, marmalade, sweet spreads and condiments commissioned local artist Lindi Kirwin to capture the iconic Central Library building in Manchester using the products available from their factory.

Named ‘Manchester Preserved’, the vibrant and creative interpretation, created at Lindi’s studio in Vernon Mill, Stockport and due to be unveiled at Broadstone Mill, Stockport, is being auctioned on ebay. Duerr’s hope that the painting will raise more than £1,000 for the charity.

Thanks for the comments Tim and Gail.
It was a terrific commission to do...I'm tickled pink to be a part of this whole project for lots of reason.
I've met some FAB people and even better, the poorly children at Manchester's Children's Hospital will benefit from the monies raised.
