** Midsummer Magic Sale**
As already mentioned on the Dare to Blossom Art Facebook page, I am planning a sale in June. I would love to send some of the original art here, the mounted paintings, and framed paintings, out to new homes, to give pleasure to people. Then I will have storage space for the new work I wish to begin soon.
So, I have not altered the prices here, the sale will last for the whole of June, and all the original work will be half price, 50% off, (plus post and packing to wherever you are in the world of course). Browse here, and contact me direct to arrange to puchase the one that calls to you - for yourself or as gift. **
Art has been a big part of my life from an early age. I could, and maybe later I will - share many stories of my childhood creative activities inspired by my extremely artistic family. Over recent years photography has been an absorbing pastime and many of the images have found their way on to my Facebook pages and into my Dare to Blossom newsletters.
Encaustic (wax) art was a part of my crafts business in the 1980s and 1990s, and recently I have returned to this medium, as well as using paints, pastels and pens.
During 2015 I set up Dare to Blossom Art as a container in which to present some of this work. Original paintings are for sale, and also greetings cards showing prints of these, (such as in the photo to the right) and of flower and scenery photographs. At the moment details of the greetings cards are to be found in small thumbnails below, and on the business Facebook page Dare to Blossom Art.
Although I have chosen a name for each piece, every person who views them sees different things, like pictures in the flickering flames of a wood fire. What do you see? The abstract paintings are often used as a focus for meditation or creative writing.
Prints of some of my work are available on Redbubble, as well as cards, journals, bags and other products.
