My husband and I were very taken with this painting, my husband especially. It is his Birthday soon and I would dearly love to be able to obtain a print of this painting. Do you have any plans to produce one?

This painting touched me - the coffin-shaped path up to the closed and unlit church, the curved enclosing walls, the looming slag heap. The adults are drawn towards the church, the children run and skip happily away from it. The painting sent a shiver down my spine. I think somebody just walked over my grave. This is the Wales that haunts me and from which I always want to escape.
Thank you CASW for choosing this one.
Dear Museum, please - a print or at least a postcard of Chapel and Tip.
