Butcher Girls, Chocolate & Instagram

Published 27 Apr 2014 at 20:49

New work!

I have works featured in sales on One Kings Lane this week, A Pretty Palette and Apartment Updates. Never thought to mention this before but One Kings Lane ship to the US only, sorry if you're UK-based, I'm neglecting my UK print customers at the moment. This won't be for long, I promise... Once this big project is out of the way I'll crack on with the print offering.

Forgot to mention The Butcher Girls of Love, a great site dedicated to the wonder of female creativity in all its forms - go and join if you're a creative girl or woman, or at least have a butchers!

Anyone else had a week of binging on chocolate? I'd like to say that I'm sick of the sight of it but that would be a blatant lie. Aside from choco-mania, I've also developed Instagram-mania. I did have an account for about 4 days back in January but deleted it because I didn't think I liked it, I changed my mind, ever the weather cock that I am, anyway, I'm here if you too are an Instagrammer - georginavinsun.

I blame breastfeeding and my having been donated an old iphone for the jump to Instagram. Breastfeeding gives you lots of forced idle time, I used to be able to read while I was feeding, but Oliver gets distracted by books these days and wants to try to eat them or throw them. Enter Rich's old iphone along with all its distractions including ebay... I will say one thing for ebay as a buyer (as a seller I hate it more and more these days), it's brilliant for finding old books. James has become a fan of the Sam Pig books by Alison Uttley, an amazing Beatrix Potter-type writer but better than Beatrix, or different, yes, different. Anyway, I found the entire series to match the three from my childhood on ebay at bargain prices too.

One Kings Lane + Saatchi Art

There are a couple of sales featuring prints of my work this week on One Kings Lane - The Art Shop & The Industrial Home Office (both start today at 8am PT / 11am ET / late afternoon GMT!)

3 pieces are also featured in Standout Moments: Art for the Living Room which began yesterday and runs for another 5 days - screen shot to the left. There are some stunners by Caroline Wright, a wonderful abstract artist whose work I've discovered via One Kings Lane, you can see one of her pieces in the screen shot in fact.

Oh! and one of my earlier 2014 pieces Anni was featured in this week's Saatchi Art homepage collection: Inspired by Cy Twombly. Can't tell you how flattering it is to have my work featured in a Twombly 'inspired' collection, I loved his energy and the fact that he painted right into old age and was still producing great work.
