Bee In A Sweetpea

Bee In A Sweetpea

Newly blossoming peonies, ranunculus and sweet peas. These soft creamy pastels worked well in the morning light and that little pop of purple set it off just right. My trusty dried bee made an appearance. 


I’ve always felt drawn to ‘dark light’ (low-key/low light) still life. I work with natural and available light which can make things a little unpredictable but I like this as it reminds me I’m not in control and develops my patience, something I need to constantly work on! The moody tones evoke emotion which really draw you in and also gives a painterly quality which harkens to the Dutch Masters who I strive to emulate. The presence of shadows accentuates the light, drawing further attention to that which is noteworthy, of beauty.


And in those days I knew again and again that these are the shadowlands where the light is growing; this is the quiet space into which Beauty speaks its truth.” - Sarah Clarkson, This Beautiful Truth

    To maintain the quality and life of your print please take the following care -

    The best suggestion is that you find a good framer to expertly handle your print for you. 

    It’s recommended you don’t handle your print until the framing or hanging process is ready.


    If framing or hanging the print yourself:

    1. Handle with either cotton gloves or clean dry hands, being careful to avoid touching the front of the image. Hold at the edges.

    2.  Gently unroll larger prints and allow them to flatten in a safe place. We suggest you do not unroll until ready for hanging or framing.

    - Find a clean, flat surface. Leave any tissue paper wrap on as you unfold. Touch as little as possible.

    - Place one end slightly over a table edge and slowly uncurl away from you, being careful not to lean up against the table edge with your legs or hips.

    - Once fully unrolled, place a large book (not too heavy) at the farthest end.

    - Gently slide the table edge end up onto the table top and place another large book at that end also.

    - Leave for 24 hours.

    There is another method to unroll your poster but the above method is recommended for least risk of damage.

    - Refer to point #1 when ready to hang or frame.
