New Prints in the Art Shop
I hope you're having a lovely weekend. Enjoying the sun? I have so much to do I don't even know where to start, I really want to paint, but also have lots of quilting to do and I need to take photos of paintings, originals, to then list them in the art shop too (after I have figured out how to ship the large ones abroad, seems to cost a fortune, let me know if ou have any advice on that).
In the meantime I finally went and listed some more prints in the art shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/ThisCreativeBliss.
I really love these, they all have a story. This painting called "The Red Robe" is inspired by Margaret Atwood's "A Handmaid"s Tale". I think for those who have read the book, that is quite obvious.
The original is 24" x 24" and was exhibited at the Kelvingrove Gallery in Glasgow as part of a charity exhibition in aid of Breastcancer Awareness.
This one is actually a pastel painting in the original and the funny thing is, I was contacted by an A-Level student asking me about pornographic art. He wanted to interview me to ask where I get my inpiration for the nude paintings from. A bit dodgy, ha?
The following painting is called "Waiting for the Sun". The original is an acrylic painting which was great fun to paint. Acrylics create such nice textures when they dry quickly. I am planning to paint lot more in Acrylics and smaller affordable originals too which can easily be shipped.
I hope you like the new prints. Would love to know what you think.
Have a wonderful weekend.
