This is one of two paintings based on a section from The Book of Chameleons by Jose Eduardo Agualusa.

“It’s full of crates of books… bats sleep upside down,

wrapped in their black capes. The wild grasses grow

between the rosebushes. A huge, leafy avocado tree

rises up in the centre of the yard.

There are tall medlar and papaya trees, laden with

fruit. The garden is closed off by a wall, the top

studded with shards of glass in different colours held

in place with cement. They look like teeth. This

fierce device doesn’t prevent boys from occasionally

climbing the walls to steal avocados, medlar fruit

and papaya.”

All my prints are printed to order. I do this partly to make sure they don't lie around getting creased etc. What it means is they will take a bit longer to get to you - about a week to be print and then I'll go and collect them and send them out after that.
