Commission Painting—Pink Flowers and Mice for Sophie

Posted on March 24, 2016 by Saffron Craig | 0 comments

I was commissioned to do a painting for a little girls room. Which is every artists dream—Right!

The request for the commission was based around an existing painting of mine (which I have placed at the bottom of this post.)

We chose the size of the canvas to fit the room. Then with one simple request—please change the sky to pale pink or white. 

It took me a week to get the painting to a place where I loved it, layering and adding texture and colours. When it was nearly finished I suggested that I should add an animal. I decided on a mouse as Sophie has a pet mouse I thought that the mice might make Sophie happy! And it did. All the feed back has been positive it did make Sophie and her family happy. The painting is now the view in her bedroom. 

It's quite astonishing to me how much one painting can change a previously white walled bedroom.

In My Brothers Tinnie

Posted on March 23, 2016 by Saffron Craig | 0 comments

It feels like every day this summer I am in the water swimming. Mostly in the harbour as the beach is closed to due to sharks, bluebottles and huge swell. 

I"m still playing with my style, so I'm happy to experiment and try new things. Originally this painting was so busy, densely patterned and very colourful. It wasn't quite pleasing to my eye—as my mum is fond of saying. So I put the painting out of my mind for a few months.

Today I kind of took a step back and looked at it with a critical eye, yes there were parts I loved and others were ho hum.

As I stared at the painting I imagined I was with my brother zooming around Sydney Harbour in his tiny tin boat. This feeling created the water. I realised it was capturing Sydney Harbour. I left small islands of pattern in the painting which were the sections from the first painting I liked and wanted to keep and draw attention to. 

Now I feel ok about it. It's got a special story.

It's called in My Brothers Tinnie.
