Let’s run away!

4 Jul

I was recently commissioned to do an art piece for a lovely lady in Johannesburg who wanted to give it as a very personal anniversary gift to her husband.

Whenever things got tough, he would say ‘shrimp boat’! Meaning they should run away together and go and live on a shrimp boat alone. I thought that’s so sweet I just had to share it!

And seeing as it’s their first wedding anniversary, paper as a gift is ideal, see traditional vs. modern anniversary gifts here.

Jellyfish in water(colour)

24 Jul

This is what I’ve been up to lately. Jellyfish swimming in water… in watercolour and acrylic. I’ve printed them onto woman’s handkerchiefs with cotton lace edges – very feminine! There is a reason why I chose jellyfish for a handkerchief – but I’ll leave it up to you to figure that one out… 🙂 That’s all still work in progress. I’m also planning to transfer them onto wood.

Let me know if you like it.
