Today I met a woman who had been with her partner 6 years but was just now starting to get her nails done regularly as she knew he had bought a ring and might propose. It struck me as so unusual…even though it isn’t at all. My experience of proposals and families has been so different. It took Seamus just 30 days of seeing each other in person over 3 months for him to be sure enough of me to propose. Me? I knew about 10 days after we met. It was a phone call with his sister that made me sure. I loved her. I just had this feeling we were meant to be best friends.

My sister got off that same phone call and asked her husband what his bet was that Seamus and I would get together. We were supposed to be house mates only, you see. My brother in law answered, ‘before the end of the week.’ He was right.

Not so long after all of that he was reading his best man speech at our wedding and telling everyone the story about how when Seamus’s mother was pregnant with her third child she thought she was having a third girl and was going to call the baby ‘Claire.’ Instead, she had Seamus but…now there is a Claire Devine, after all. It all feels like it was written in the stars.

So was our move to a little quiet beach town last year. After years of searching…this little studio and a house not far away turned up on the market and when I showed my mother the listings she said ‘buy them sight unseen!’ 

A month later we had moved. Things move fast in our family. I’m unsure if we are impressively impulsive or just particularly in tune with what feels right.

Either way, the lapping waves and sand clinging to my ankles remind me that we are always exactly where we are meant to be.

 

This colourful, vibrant abstract beach and ocean painting from celebrated Australian artist Claire Devine is just the summer refresh your home needs. It is a bold and unapologetically optimistic contemporary artwork for choosers of joy.

Artwork information

Fine art reproductions (prints) are printed on the very best archival cotton rag or archival stretched canvas as chosen by you by a small family firm in Brisbane. All of my cotton paper prints are inclusive of a 1cm white border and fit straight into standard frames or are easily custom-framed without losing any of the image, and the stretched canvas prints and originals can be put straight on the wall as they are ready to hang.

Our canvas prints come with a mirrored edge for a wrapped look or a plain edge if the background colour of the artwork is a block colour.

As with all new arrivals, we’d love to see you celebrate it properly. We suggest popping some champagne and taking a picture once it’s hanging on your wall.

We’d love to see your celebrations. You can tag us on Instagram @thenewdevine or send your snaps to us by replying to your order email.

Our favourite store-bought frames can be found on framing guide, and more framing information can be found on our FAQ page. Or, as with any question, please feel free to get in touch so we can help you perfect a room with your new art.

Shipping - We post on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Australian Standard Shipping is Free or you can choose express for $10. International flat rate shipping is $25. We post most orders on the following Tuesday or Friday, however there are some exceptions:

A1 and A0 artworks are printed to order as are all stretched canvas artworks. Please allow an extra 5-10 business days for printing in addition to standard Australia Post delivery estimates. We often have things ready MUCH sooner but sometimes, our printer is overwhelmed with our orders so please be patient if your new art takes a little longer to arrive. We promise it will be worth it.

Original Artworks: We very carefully varnish originals and pack them incredibly well once they are sold. Seamus is in charge of all of that and he’s meticulous - he used to work on gas rigs so when it comes to safety and attention to detail? He doesn’t compromise. It can sometimes take him a whole day to pack an original depending on the size with his unique system so you can imagine if we sell a couple of originals all at once he gets very busy! An extra couple of days for careful packing is absolutely worth it for a safe delivery of your art, though. Expect a week or so between ordering your original and it being posted. I promise it will be worth it.

Copyright and reproductions

Purchase of any The New Devine original artwork or art product (including reproductions) does not entitle the purchaser to make further copies—the copyright remains with the artist.

Framing

Please note all prints are sold unframed.

Images above are examples only and have been included to give you a squiz at how beautiful the work looks when framed.

We produce our prints to fit standard store-bought frames but we do recommend professional framing to improve the longevity and quality of your piece.
