Last year I found myself in a bit of an art-buying frenzy. It was so much easier to justify purchases of beautiful things which I could gaze on for a long, long time as opposed to the more fleeting pleasure offered by buying clothes and accessories. All my decidedly lovely pieces of art have sadly been stored away until I found the money and time to invest in some suitable frames. That all changed with a recent trip to Ikea, when I managed to pick up some frames for a few of my art prints.
The first is the ‘Gocco Boo Bunny’ limited edition print by Mandy Sutcliffe which now has pride of place on my desk. And just look at the lovely Belle & Boo goodies that I also received with my order – such generosity is something I love to be surprised with!! More of Mandy’s beautiful art can be purchased from her store Belle & Boo.
The second is a limited edition print of ‘Sleepy Pink Birds’ by Melbourne artist Melissa Haslam. Her art is exquisite and I just adore her dreamy, romantic vision of the interaction between the real and the unreal, the physical and the spiritual.
While I haven’t found the perfect spot for this print yet, for now it is just enough to have it framed, ready and waiting. Now I just have to tackle the ten other art prints which are still patiently waiting to be tended to…
