Squareathon, a worldwide painting challenge with pre-determined daily prompts (this time with the instruction to pick ‘two of three words’ each day from the prompt list) is run by Melissa Doty art and challenges artists to try new inspiration and ideas for the duration of the challenge. These pieces are created on deep edge gallery cotton canvas (a more textured canvas than the large originals I create, mainly to give these smaller pieces more texture) and are ready to hang with a custom wire at the back. 

 

We’ve deliberately put this piece on sale in fitting with the accessibility we try to promote during #squareathon. 61x61cm - the same extraordinary luxury as all our other pieces but priced perfectly for an instant pick-me-up.

Did I just say that I don’t have any magic tricks for painting with small children? Yet here we were, tired and lethargic on a Sunday morning after a night of broken sleep and Sacha calmly painted away beside me, using my paint excess on his own little canvas as I flew about creating this one - painting joy and calm into my own day as my mind fluttered over the to-do list for the week. Sometimes, even when we are physically tired, rest is not the answer. Sometimes action is the answer because it resolves the gnawing thoughts of a racing mind. Satisfaction comes from meaningful action and feeling accomplished, loved, and a sense of having spent your time well. 

Time is our most precious commodity and today we spent our time well, indeed. What a privilege to paint quietly with my son and to create something enduring and beautiful this morning.

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.

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.

More info on framing (including our favourite store-bought frames) in our Shipping and T&Cs section available in the footer menu and on the blog. 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

Free shipping worldwide (yay!). Whilst we aim to post most orders within 48 hours on business days (because weekends...you know...are a thing) there are a few 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.

Payments:

Methods: We accept all major payment methods: ShopPay, Apple Pay, Visa, Mastercard, Afterpay and Paypal

What you pay: As shipping worldwide is free, you pay only the total amount for your artworks as described in the product listing (minus any discount code you may have to apply at checkout.) GST is included in the purchase price listed. If ordering outside of Australia, you may also be responsible for import taxes imposed by your country on your items as they are sent internationally DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid.) We are not responsible for any additional import taxes or duties you may be required to pay outside of Australia and as such the cost of these is not included in your purchase price from our website.

Unfortunately due to the new VAT requirements of Brexit, we are unable to ship to the UK at this time.
