I am donating one of my brand new, Limited Edition Fine Art Composited Prints:
Tara Spicer – ‘Tales Untold’
Size: approx: 80 x 60cm
Archival Ink Printed to Fine Art Rag
Matted and frame
This print “Tales Untold” is based on the yet untold adventures of the life of my daughter. I find it amazing to look ahead into her future and wonder what experiences she might have and how life may unfold for her. I am scared for her and excited for her and I hope that life is kind to her and that it is packed with so much love and friendship and delight and strength and empowerment and oh so much more… but despite the hopes that I grip firmly in my hand and heart… in reality, it is all unknown and it is hers alone, to journey through.
This particular piece features my daughter, herself… a cat that lives near the local primary school that comes to say goodmorning most mornings and a Rainbow Bee Eater that nests at Yaroomba Parklands. I feature only locals and people who have personally crossed my path within all of my works. It is important to me to include locals within this magical process to enable others to see themselves in a completely new way. To me , this adds value to the piece for both its added locally based roots as well as making the life of another a little exciting.
I am also donating an original oil painting… the last of my own stock!
Some of these paintings, I never thought i would part with as I imagined they would stay in our family, but I feel that it is better to add fortitude to an opportunity to pass solution, relief and happiness on to others who are in need! And that is exactly what the money raised through the art auction enables.
To Add to the excitement of this month… one of my works has been featured in Art Edit Magazine!:
This art magazine is packed full of art investment advice, articles on fantastic Australian artists (this month one of our own locals’ Lisa Lee is featured as well), tips on hanging works and insights into current artists and exhibitions. This is my favorite art magazine and I highly recommend putting a pot of tea on before you immerse yourself within its’ pages because you will be there for a while!
