Shop: Follow Your Art

Follow your art - floral print Follow you art by Bec Brown, Clouds of Colour 1 Follow you art by Bec Brown, Clouds of Colour 2

Its actually kind of funny how this art print came about – I was scouting quotes on Pinterest & read a ‘Follow your heart’ quote wrongly and thought it had said ‘Follow your art’. Dannnng thats clever! BOOM lightbulb moment – new print design. Follow your art with a floral heart – print now available on the Shop. And heres the result. Its everything I’m about. I love this piece so much that I went straight to the picture framers. If you need anything framed head to – The Framing Rooms, Collingwood Street, Nelson. They are just delightful!

Happy weekend friends! Today I am heading to an engagement party at the beach – what a beautiful way to start the weekend. What do you have planned?
A little art update – this black & white elephant print has been added to the Clouds of Colour Etsy Shop. I did this a few weeks ago using ink pen and Indian ink. I really cant wait to produce fabric & wallpapers some day! xobec


Art: Floating geometric large painting

For my bedroom I wanted to create a piece of art work in the same style as I usually do but LARGE! I wanted the piece to be simple, balanced & tie in with the colours in my room.
I stretched my own canvas on to an old window frame and sat in front of the piece until ideas started to form. As they formed, I put them on the canvas. This is what I created!

At first I didnt like it (as with most of my pieces) it has grown on me and now I loooove it. It makes my room feel so much bigger and waaaay more interesting. What I loved most about creating this was that I let anything happen. The image above displays part of the painting that has a cool story in how it was created – as I was drawing the geometric patterns a little bug landed where the paper plane shape now sits. A light bulb went off – the little bug should have a place on here! His wing shape was like a paper plane.

At some point I would like to screen print my own duvet cover & apply the same geometric patterns to it.
So my bedroom is almost complete! I also FINALLY found an old ladder to use as my bookshelf – yipeeeee!
Hope you all had an amazing weekend and cutesy Valentines Day xx xobec
