This is a very nostalgically special framed photograph print for me (if you've read some of this blog... you'll know I'm a sucker for nostalgia).
I remember my folks being given it by one of my oldest brother's mates (who I remember was a Chef) when I was around 11 (for what reason I'm not sure) but growing up... this picture was a constant in my life and it still makes me feel good to have it still as a constant in my life today. I've always seen it as a really uplifting and positive image... the children coming out of the dark into the light.
This is my newest painting acquisition from a fellow artist I met on Red Bubble.
I fell in love with it and was extremely lucky to get it... It's just so me... I adore it!!
Her name is Carmen Cilliers.... you can see her wonderful work "here".
My Aunty is a fabulous artist... she's been painting for most of her life.
She did a duo exhibition with my Mum a few years back where she shipped many of her works from Brisbane to Melbourne for the exhibition.
After the exhibition ended she told me to choose a painting for me to keep. I cannot tell you how thrilled it made me... honestly... my whole insides were like jumping beans... I was just so very very excited!! I felt just so special and happy ... I absolutely adore her style and her work.... always have!
Of her paintings in the gallery... this was the one that really stood out to me and spoke to me personally.
I'll forever be so thankful to my beautiful Aunty Chris for this painting... it is honestly one of the best gifts I have EVER received. She's such an incredibly special lady... I admire her so very very much!
I also have my own work and photography, My Dad's photo's .... as well as a lot of my Mum's art hanging in my house which I will photograph and show in the near future.
I would love to see what's hanging on your walls... maybe photograph some of your art/photography on the walls and link it in the comments below?
