Converse Sneakers

I am starting off my 2015 post
with a fun illustration of
Converse Sneakers.
As a kid, I remember calling them gym boots.
I am hoping to have other colours in store but for now the black and white ones are available.

I thought the watermelon craze was over, but I was wrong...

I thought the watermelon craze was over, 
I was wrong!
What is about this tropical pink fruit that has designers
and decor stylists going mad?
My daughter loves everything watermelon and pineapple.
So! I've jumped on the bandwagon too.
I'm sorry! The urge was just too good to refuse and...
Pineapples and cherry prints and originals available too.

Beach towels hanging on hooks

I don't know what it is about towels, beach towels, socks, nappies (diapers) hanging on a line or in a row on hooks. I love them.
Below are some images of my fun beach towel prints.

Tiffany & Co.

So here is a little print to have while you wait for the real thing! 
Tiffany & Co. boxed (print).
I was once told, 
'every girl should receive a blue box with a white ribbon once in their life!'
Nice thought...
In the meantime, why not a framed print.

A spring and summer print is on its way for those of you living in the top half of the world.

Summery pastel iceblocks

1940's Elkins Loop Chair

I have been really hanging out to paint chairs.
I had been redrawing chairs and toying with swatches on the computer in Illustrator but it didn't feel like the real thing - sometimes Adobe Illustrator really lets you cheat. Don't get me wrong. They looked awesome but I really wanted to put brush to paper on these ones. I think I will get better the more I do however to start off the first of many I chose the lovely 1940s Elkins Loop Chair. I have this thing for 1940's furniture.

Pink peonies in blue and white vase

I have just added some flowers to my token
blue and white artwork.
I love peonies. I've tried not to go too life like. I'd rather leave that to those amazing
botanical illustrators.
Small prints available. Larger prints will be available mid February onwards. The original is for sale too.
The below image is of the original watercolour.

And yet another ming...

I can't seem to keep up with orders and so I have taken a break from the limited editions and doing a bit of a run on endless prints. This way when I do do another limited edition it will seem more special perhaps! By request I was asked to do a jar that had more white than blue. So here you go.

'Double Happiness' to you for 2014

I thought I would make my first blog for 2014
a post showing a new painting I have just finished - a 'Double Happiness ginger jar'
I will be endeavouring to paint quite a few different subject matters over the next twelve months but also continuing to paint my beloved blue and white ginger jars and urns.
I've had a lot of enquiries about kids artwork so I will be relooking into that area again but perhaps with a tweenie edge.
Happy 2014 everyone!
