Printed to a high standard on Hanemuhle Fine Art Matt paper 310gsm using only original Canon inks ensuring best colour reproduction possible. With care light stability of these pigmented inks should last more than 100 years. The original painting which is oil on deep edge linen was part of the ‘Gongoozler Project’ from my artist residency at Scottish Canals funded by Creative Scotland. The original painting is available to purchase.
The world’s first and only rotating boat lift was opened by Her Majesty, The Queen. The Falkirk Wheel connects the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal. The lift is named after Falkirk, the town in which it is located. It reconnects the two canals for the first time since the 1930s. It was opened by her Majesty, The Queen in 2002 as part of the Millennium Link project.
Other canal work can be viewed on my website www.lesleybanks.com.
Definition of Gongoozler - A person who enjoys watching activity on the canals but do not actively participate. It was also used as an insult in canal people’s slang for an ‘idler who stares at length’ presumably when the canal workers were toiling away.

My order was dealt with swiftly. The print arrived safely wrapped in tissue in a cardboard tube. It came timeously for framing in time for Christmas. My partner loves it. I would heartily recommend Lesley Banks.
