Little Love Birds Collection - January 2022
Our Little Love Birds collection is inspired by my children and my good friend, Kate's children. After Sacha requested I paint birds for him, Kate's son asked for a fairy wren and suddenly a collection was coming to life...
(If you want to hear Kate and my chat about life-saving blood donations, infertility and life, you'll find it here....Milkshakes for Marleigh Pod)
"Sacha, our eldest, is in the in-between of kindy and school and whilst excited for school, the expansive wait for it to start and for his kindy life (the only routine he’s ever known) to end is a pitifully tedious, drawn-out, heart-aching experience. The discomfort of the in-between is hard for all of us in life…but for this moment especially him. So, when he asked me to paint some happy birds, how could I say no? Kind of lovebirds. Kind of siblings. Full of love for each other and life. Maybe you recognise some lovers or children or family or friends or hope or encouragement in this collection, too."
There are 4 new originals:
William - A beautifully textured Fairy Wren on a peachy background) - custom framed in raw timber. Original measures 76x61cm +about 4cm for the frame. $2000 with complimentary shipping in Australia.
Leo - Frankly, my favourite. A little fairy wren on a square canvas with a light aqua-blue background. This guy's little slightly-sleepy, slightly-disgruntled face and fabulous feathers are the perfect combination for me - a really magic piece. Custom framed in raw timber. Original measures 61x61cm + about 4cm for the frame. $1800 with complimentary shipping in Australia.
Rhodes - A charming kookaburra who looks like a laid back, friendly kind of chap - much like the one that hangs out in our back yard. Custom framed in raw timber. Original measures 76x61cm + about 4cm for the frame. (No prints will be made of Rhodes - he's one of a kind.) $2000 with complimentary shipping in Australia.
We are. This piece is about my three boys. So, it could have been called "We are brothers." Except that I think it could really be the story of many of us. We are sisters. We are Australian. We are best buddies. We are unique. We are unified. We are a team. We are a family. We are one. We are. Original measures 76x101cm. This piece is not framed but does come ready to hang with a custom wire. $3000 with complimentary shipping in Australia.
We also have 3 new prints.
William, Leo and "Benjamin and Campbell." Two little fairy wren brothers who are just too cute, charismatic and special for words. Scroll down to see them.
