Thanks for popping by to have a read about what I have been up to lately.
I have some exciting news about a brand new print from my original painting 'Into the Blossom'.
This painting started a while ago when some friends gave me a rather large (apx 1.5m square) canvas that they no longer wanted. It's not often you get given a canvas this big free of charge, so I was racking my brains for something to paint on it. It went through different stages and many layers of paint, some layers with some help from my three children!
After looking through some magazines and following my natural instincts to paint a unicorn and a fox ;) 'Into the Blossom' started to emerge. I wanted it to be something magical, and special as the original was for my daughter's bedroom (where it is now hanging) to give her magical dreams each night.
The final layer was done in a mixture of gouache and collage and then varnished to finish the whole thing off.
I have had a very limited edition run of 50 prints made, all printed locally, here in Dorset. The prints are 60cm x 60cm and are Giclee prints done on ultra smooth 280gsm fine art, acid free paper. It is printed with archival quality pigment colour-fast ink. So a very special print indeed , I hope you'll agree.
Here are some pictures of the finished print, if you think you'd like 'Into the Blossom' hanging on your wall, you can find it here . It'd make a wonderful present for some one special in your life....
I recently had a print framed and I'm so pleased with how it looks in this white frame :)
