I’m very happy to announce that the ‘Mother and Child’ prints are now done and dusted and current orders will be sent out today and tomorrow. Thank you to everyone who pre-ordered one, your patience has been much appreciated as we’ve fine tweaked it to get everything looking exactly right. .
The colours are lush, it is pin sharp and the gold leaf detail is a delight to the eyeballs. Thank you @k2screen for another amazing job. 👌🏼
It’s a mix of screen print, giclee print, gold-leaf and a little bit of ink by my own fair claw (on the lotus petals - ‘om mani padme hum’ (the jewel in the lotus flower’)) on each one. .
This image has been in the pipes for well over a year, and amongst other things is a response to all the ugly shit that is going on in the world, and the continuing devastation of our Mother Earth, our miraculous home of endless beauty spinning about in an infinite cosmos. ✨🤩✨
It’s also for all the mothers out there who have brought every one of us into this magical place, especially my dear old ma Anne Hillier, who popped me out in 1973. Love you mum! ✨💛✨.
The reverse side is printed with the Buddha’s Metta Sutta on loving kindness. Here’s a bit of it:
‘Let none deceive another,
Or despise any being in any state.
Let none through anger or ill-will
Wish harm upon another.
Even as a mother protects with her life
Her child, her only child,
So with a boundless heart
Should one cherish all living beings;
Radiating kindness over the entire world:
Spreading upwards to the skies,
And downwards to the depths.’
If you’d like one of these there are two editions of the screen print with gold and also a smaller giclee one - all details are on my website. Link up yonder. 👆🏼
Love to all. 🌿
Let it snow! 😇

We really love riding our motorcycles here at Cowboy Harley-Davidson. We've made so many friends along the way. This is Cowboy Technician @hah361's FXR, painted by @thefastlifegarage, at the first annual @txhills_cycleshow. Cheers to all the good times we've had, and the good times yet to come!
@thefastlifegarage - One of the first few fxr’s we painted earlier this year for the homie @hah361 rocking the @sscycle v111 rad bike! #harleys#clubstyle#performanceharleydavidson#goldleaf#rideanddestroy#ridetexas#instaharley#customharley
I love GOOOOLLLDDDD!!!! I’m literally covered, but having a blast gold leafing pretty much everything in sight. Most of my pieces painted onto wood or canvas have a gold leaf element, one of my favourite ways is impregnating the final resin varnish of my woodwork with gold, copper or silver leaf creating a hard wearing product that has a glittery depth. I now have to clear up the gold leaf before the cat wakes up from her nap!!! 🐱🌟⭐️✨💫 #gold#goldleaf#goldfinger#glitter#allthatglitters#art#handmade#artoninstagram
