  • MIRROR IMAGE CUSHION FROM REDBUBBLE

This cushion, Mirror Image, is my current favourite. In other words, I’m showing off in public how much I like and enjoy my work! A pleasingly large number of these images are best sellers in one form or another. As for the ones I like least, there are quite a few I’d delete at the drop of a hat but I can’t because these are also bestsellers!

‘Seven years ago, a hesitant sonographer informed my husband and me that our second baby was identical twins. Our shock was seismic. We didn’t know any twins or anything about twins. Frankly, we weren’t even quite sure how we’d managed it. Separately and instantly, we came to the same conclusion: we’d need a new car, probably a new house and certainly a new job to pay for it all, which … ‘

This is not the first time I’ve sold a print of Gabrielle d’Estrees and one of her sisters at Fine Art America. I find it an engagingly unexpected piece for the 16th century. An art expert might laugh at me for my ignorance and point me in the direction of a treasury of such unexpected 16th century artwork.

Gabrielle d’Estrees and one of her sisters, or Portrait presume de Gabrielle d’Estrees et de sa soeur la duchesse, was at one time attributed to Frans Pourbus and at another to Francois Clouet. The true artist remains unknown but the picture belongs to the School of Fontainebleau. Painted in oil on an oak panel in 1594, it now hangs in the Louvre.

FROM THE ARCHIVE 4th November 2014

What fun to have sold a whacking great print of Gabrielle d’Estrees and one of her sisters on Fine Art America. It’s a delightfully cheeky oil painting; it’s a great shame the art…

Created with a map image from TanEphemeraKitchenLabels via Design Cuts, a texture from Lenabem-Anna J, and a lady and postcard back from The Graphics Fairy.

What fun I had layering and putting together Mirror Image! Now, I’m not a symmetrical sort of person and I’m a great fan of asymmetrical clothing and so forth. In other words, I like misalignment in various guises. However, if something needs to be aligned and I’ve done it mathematically but it doesn’t look as if it is, I will adjust according to my overall view — perhaps not advisable when you have a cataract, but that’s how I’ve played it. This, however, was a test of my good right eye and there was a lot of squinting to get every element entirely aligned in order to create a mirror image. It was before the operation!

What fun to have sold a whacking great print of Gabrielle d’Estrees and one of her sisters on Fine Art America. It’s a delightfully cheeky oil painting; it’s a great shame the artist is unknown. Who would have thought that such a sassy image would have been acceptable in 1594!

Gabrielle d’Estrees and one of her sisters, or Portrait presume de Gabrielle d’Estrees et de sa soeur la duchesse, was at one time attributed to Frans Pourbus and at another to Francois Clouet. The true artist remains unknown but the picture belongs to the School of Fontainebleau. Painted in oil on an oak panel in 1594, it now hangs in the Louvre.

This painting is one of my all-time favourites and when I have the money, I shall buy an enormous framed version for my living room.

Gabrielle d’Estrées and one of her sisters, or Portrait présumé de Gabrielle d’Estrées et de sa soeur la duchesse, was at one time attributed to Frans Pourbus and at another to François Clouet.  The true artist remains unknown but the picture belongs to the School of Fontainebleau.  Painted in oil on an oak panel in 1594, it now hangs in the Louvre.

The images and links in today’s post are to Fine Art America and Fine Art England (new site) but I have, in fact, just sold a print of the painting at Zazzle, which is immensely pleasing.

The Stuff They Won't Include in Any Tourist Guide: The Real England

The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.
