I am for all art that takes its form from the lines of life itself, that twists and extends and accumulates and spits and drips, and is heavy and coarse and blunt and sweet…
β€” Claus Oldenburg, 'Ode to Possibilities'

Since the launch of my debut print collection I've had a number of questions about framing and mats. I'm hesitant to give any definitive answers because it's such a personal choice with a number of different opinions, but to help, we've added a link on each product page in my shop to a page with some thoughts and suggestions.
*
My own preference is for a simple, classic, wide white mat giving the image room to breathe. Frames are a world unto themselves and I highly recommend taking your time to choose one that enhances the art.
*
Shown is my 'Highview' print in my very favorite antique carved wood frame that I inherited from my parents (once hold leaf but now really badly painted white by moi 😁)
*
*
And one last reminder that the print preorder window closes tonight at midnight! It's your last chance to get in on the launch promotion (bonus mini print with every order over $149). Link to my print shop above πŸ‘†

I love the way 'Days Gone By' has turned out as a print. It rounds out the collection so well with its quiet beauty, and offers an unusually sophisticated palette. There are a thousand subtle shades of color in these clouds and overall this sky, this view, feels warm and wise.
*
The original painting has sold (posted a few days ago if you scroll through my gallery here).

Shown is the 8" x 10" mini print but there are 3 other sizes available with custom sizes upon request.

Sometimes the paint takes over and a piece evolves in a beautiful way almost beyond my control. The feeling of that is like no other. It's a thrill, it's curious, it's exciting and leaves me a bit mystified. So long as the end result is as magnificent as this... Bring it on!
*
Sunset skies are tricky and can get a bit clichΓ©. We've all seen the inspirational posters. Or sympathy card-ish right? And my big white clouds disappear in a typical sunset sky.
*
So I did it my way,
followed my heart and am in love!
(put that on a poster πŸ‘Š)

Oh, how I adore you 'Highview'! You are my favourite memory of the years I spent in England, the view I used to see walking between villages on my way to the studio each morning. You are the fresh spring green of that rambling rural hill, the dusty (usually muddy) path skirting the farmers field that I would follow. The grey blue sky holding rain but holding off. I climbed over your fence posts many a day, making the shortcut a longcut just to get a better view of what felt like home to me.
*
I hold 'Highview' very close to my heart and including it in my first print collection felt truly important because its a part of me as much as the others. Perhaps even more.
*
While the original oil painting has just sold and is heading overseas, a beautiful print could be yours! Three sizes available with custom sizes available upon request.

There's something about wide open water views that seem to be universally calming. Maybe it's the vastness of the sky, the dark mystery of the depths, the sound of the waves, the smell of salty air... all delivered on an cloudy breeze.

Well, I think I've managed to capture all of that and more with this one!
*
The original has sold but beautiful prints are now available!

Daytrippin' is a painting that encompasses everything I love about wide open spaces and expansive blue skies.
*
It feels like freedom to me and was painted on a day I felt completely overwhelmed by life and just simply needed to run (ok, bike ride) away away away.
*
To leave technology and concrete and to do lists behind and to allow myself to get lost in the peaceful wisdom and quiet of nature. To simply BE. To find a place where no one could find me so I could just breathe.
*
And I found that green hillside under a bright summer blue sky and took in the feeling as I watched the clouds float by. I soaked in every ounce of that feeling and....painted it to share with you!

The painting around which this whole print thing developed. 'Heavens Above'
*
Every once in a while a painting comes along that takes my breath away. I almost feel like I can't take credit for them as they felt like I was channelling something much greater than me. I almost don't remember the actual painting part. They just suddenly were in front of me looking and feeling like magic.
*
While the original was a commission and is now living with someone really special to me, I felt like this piece needed to be shared more widely with the world. It is love and joy and kindness and open-hearted wonder through and through.
*
Thus began my print collection and now the ability to offer museum-quality prints of this beauty!
*
It is a limited edition print though and once its sold out.... Well, best just to pop in now and claim one for your home 😊.

Kind of a big day around Studio Bee - it's the launch of my first ever print collection!
*
Its something I've been asked about for ages but I could never find my way through to making it happen - certainly not on my own and in a way I was proud of. But it needed to happen and so I took a deep breath and here we are! It has been a hellofalotta work to achieve the standard of results I expect of myself and anything I sign my name to. But entirely completely totally worth it.
*
Now that I've got the best possible person behind me (@nikkyb you're the star of this show) and found one of the very best art print shops to create simply stunning prints for me (blown away by the results @smokestack digital)... Let's do this!
*
Shop is live Now! Link in my bio πŸ‘†

Trying to be all things to all people and keep projects rolling and launch something new #HINTHINT has kept me under constant pressure for months. In order to cope with it all, I'm instituting something I'm calling Radical Painting Time.
*
Dedicating days to nothing but studio painting. To give myself permission to walk away from everything - emails, social medias, Zooms, errands, phone calls - and just paint. I need it not just for my business but for my mental health.
*
So... Bye!

What are you listening to these days? I need podcast recommendations! I listen to music (@blugazer_music podcasts are my absolute favourite to paint to) or podcasts all day and am looking for an influx of new content. Not the big ones we all know and love.... I'm curious about the less well known ones that are out there.
*
I've recently discovered the comedian @thefionaoloughlin and loved her episode on 'Conversations' (Australian Broadcast Corp).
*
Here's one of my recent podcast finds:
'Funny in Failure' with Michael Kahan
