Rainy Sunday

Sunday we explored. Overcast, raindrops & drizzly.
Hey bloggers…Its been forever since I did a personal post on here – or even posted much at all. I’ve considered getting back in to blogging and on some days, closing this site completely. But I love what is on here too much – and I’d feel sad completely leaving!
A lot has changed since I was last really on here. So I’m starting fresh! I want it to be more open & treated as a diary – rather than just a place to share art & crafts (with nothing much about me).
So for starters…my lovely readers…let me introduce you to Nick. He’s a brilliant photographer, dad (2 sweet little boys that I get to be the ‘cool mumma’ around) and is super hipster, creative, clever…the list really does go on. You can check out his photography here.
He’s the major reason I’m back on here blogging. On Sunday we explored and I finally felt the urge to get behind my camera again. I LOVE black & white images so much…so maybe that is what it will mainly be about.

We’ve been through a heck of a lot together since we met… There are things I want to share in time.
But for now…heres us!

Instagram lately

Spring is coming Homestyle Mag + drawing

Snapshots from the past few weeks on Instagram – including me putting up my latest exhibition ‘OUTLINES’. Im always so nervous setting up an exhibition – making it look good & also having all my work on display. My exhibition is on until the 8th September – more info on it here.
Gossshhhhh I love Instagram – its probably the best addiction one could have…capturing amazing moments in life and being able to look back on them so easily.

We are slowly getting little signs of Spring…which means summer…which means not having to wear 3 pairs of socks and 3 merinos every day!
I hope youre all having a wonderful weekend – today I’m working on my 2015 Calendar. So excited to see the finished product! xobec


…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…

Winter Beach NZ + Book USA Summer Fruit Clothing Tulips + Mustard candles Flower Shop + Home Decor Nelson Buildings + Blue sky Bec Brown - selfie

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
