My digital artwork has been used by new on-line business Gertrude and Smith.
I am so happy to have a Giclee Print image on new on-line luxury gift parcel business Gertrude + Smith.
Being selected was not a given, even though it is my Son’s new business. He is working hard to launch around June this year. It’s a hard life as he has me sampling chocolates, cocktails, candles etc. Such a hard life. Please look him up, subscribe to his website and follow him on his instagram as listed below. He will be doing competitions and offering his beautiful gift parcels to a follower soon. Everything is Premium, I have never heard that word used so much in my life. Premium.
The artwork he has printed on a card is called ‘I’m in Smith Street’.
Digital images from Smith Street shops.
I took these photos and then photoshopped them into these fun images. Mai was shopping for fruit so she has the whole shop and more on her shoulders now. Doug was at the pub and got a little clumsy. Just a little bit of fun playing with scale and of course photoshop and some drawing. They are around A5 size ink jet prints limited edition (only 5). I have a few more Smith Street shopps being carted around by people.
Had an invitation to afternoon tea. Delicious.
The lovely Jan (neighbour, friend, art student, artist, ex fitzroy resident) invited me for a gorgeous afternoon tea in Alphington. Jan’s house overlooks Latrobe Golf Club. I have added a spoon I made a few month ago as I am still in the middle of finishing a couple of new carved spoons and a black and white picture that I just love. I am no photographer but I think I just got lucky with this photogenic little girl (Julia).
Painting redo plus two more loves.
Here is a sweet photo of me holding my 9 week old Grandson Mason’s hand. I thought it was very touching so I decided to make a similar one for another love of mine, my beautiful Kelpie Ninna. As my Son is interstate he was really touched by both of these images as he adores his dog and is still getting to know his nephew.
Another love. Art. I recently pulled out all the small boards and canvases I could find and decided to paint some objects. The one below has obliterated the previous post with the green glass as I felt that one photographed better than seeing it in life so I started again. I just worked on it again and am still thinking about it. Maybe a work in progress.
My drawing commission is finished and the owner is thrilled – here is Merlin.
Here is a pencil drawing of Merlin the miniature poodle on Fabriano Paper.
Below are a few of MANY unsuccessful photos during our photo shoot for Merlin.
I used an oil pencil and a kneadable eraser. I like the oil pencil for its blackness and the fact you can smudge if you wish and it can to a point be erased if you change your mind. Oh and generally it is not dusty and can be sharpened to a very fine point.
He is very cute and quite boisterous.
