Welcome to Etsy Wednesday! I’d like to introduce you to Freeandbeyond and her lovely paintings. The one above is called ‘Lovebirds in the Morning’ – Don’t you just love the colours? If you know me, you know I like colour!
This one is called ‘Singing Solo’ – I love the zingy orange and those raw edges. As FreeandBeyond says herself,
“I am a true Londoner at heart but love living the adventure of travel and therefore spend a lot of time on the move...This means my paintings have to be very small to be able to travel with me. I use intense colours and layer them. Each layer has to dry very quickly, so every morning when I paint, I turn to the sun, let the shadows fall behind me and they set while I illustrate in ink over the paint.
Although I paint quickly, I take ages to let them go. They become little friends that are hard to part with...!”
Don’t you want to help her part with them? I do!
Each painting measures approximately 7cm by 7cm and is truly original and (discreetly) signed.
If you prefer to buy in pounds sterling, you can also find Freeandbeyond’s work at Folksy.
