New Art – Originals

Bubblegum Cheeks - art original by Bec Brown 3

A few of my latest works! I have started adding original artworks to the Etsy Shop - these are not made into prints unless otherwise stated. This way they are yours and only yours!
Im really excited to be producing a more abstract range as well. When I started my Etsy Shop, the art had a lot of doodling it and felt more controlled. These pieces – which have bright colours & abstract drawings just keep flowing out of me. I feel so absorbed in them. Also incorporating text has been fun! I have never really investigated typography so this is a good way to explore & start.

…Annnd I’m back!

Bec Brown + summer daisies

Well guys. Its been 2 months since I last posted on my beautiful little corner of the internet. Ive had mixed emotions about this blog and what to do next with it. By not focusing on my blog, I have created a huge amount of artwork and also had an adventure to America!
I have decided to use it more like a portfolio of my art, design & photography – instead of a blog that I update 3-4 times a week. This way I can focus hugely on my art.
I dont want to ‘get over’ posting on here and desert this fun world of blogging!
So here is a wee update of what I’ve been upto – snapshots from my iPhone…

I’ll be sharing a few iPhone snapshots of my holiday to America soon, and also all the art Ive been creating.
If you’d like to keep up to date on a regular bases with my art, I am always adding new images to Instagram & Facebook.

Friday

Colourful sunset Bec - black & white

Hello hello! Isn’t this year just whizzzzzing by? It dawned on me the other day that we are almost half way through 2014 – say whaaaat?
For me it’s time to refocus on this years goals and anything I’d like to work on to achieve them before the year is over. One of my main goals being to create a calendar for 2015 full of watercolour drawings!
On Wednesday night we went to Rhys Darby… He is doing a comedy tour called Mr Adventure – pretty sure I got a 6 pack from laughing so hard. Anyway if you’re not sure who Rhys is there is a video link below – you may recognise him from Flight of the Concords as Murray!

Rhys Darby in New Zealand

This weeks…
Article: A series of images of the traditional life in the Siberian Arctic. I love this insight and the emotion portrayed in the beautiful pictures. It’s so far from my life here. Truly stunning.
Video: The best of Murray Hewitt from Flight of the Concords
Quote: ‘A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions’. – Ahhhh yes. This is perfect.

Macaroon + vintage boots

I hope you all have a lovely weekend planned. A few home DIYs and some thrifting is in order for me. Plus a trip to the market for fresh flowers & coffee dates :) xobec


WIP: Floral Framed Peacock

I’ve been working on this piece for the past few weeks. Each night I sit down with a piping hot liquorice flavoured tea (if any of you love black jellybeans then this is a must-try!) & draw. This…has got to be one of my absolute fave pieces! I love the floral pattern, position of the peacock & the negative space. It was inspired – partly – by old tapestries but done in a new graphic style.
Above are a few pics of it before it went off to the framers this week – I can’t wait to see it framed!
Hope you’re all having a lovely week. xobec
