#SimplyBeReal

A few weeks ago I had an interesting email from a representative for Simply Be. She asked if I wanted to do a couple of illustrations for their #SimplyBeReal campaign, my answer: yes!

#SimplyBeReal

Be back soon…


Master Spotlight: Arthur Claude Strachan

 

Arthur Claude Strachan

I haven’t done a ‘Master Spotlight’ in a while and I’ve been wanting to do a post with some of the idyllic paintings by Arthur Claude Strachan, so here we have a Arthur Claude Strachan ‘Master Spotlight’…
