Two New Prints listed in Simona Candini Art Etsy Shop

Hi my darlings,
tonight I've had the chance to update my Etsy shop already with my two newest artworks
"Deep Sea Beauties" and "Little Gingers". The originals are sold, but of course I've made the limited edition prints ;)

I had so much fun using for a change a different color palette, on white paper for the mermaid and unicorn illustration, which turned out very girly and sweet. I've created this for a make-up company that will use the image for packaging and advertising their make-up line. Maybe I will create more artworks using these cheerful rainbow colors. I hope that you like how it turned out!

You can find my prints here

Much love to you <3

New prints in Simona Candini Etsy Shop!

Hello!
I was meaning to write a news post with the link to my Etsy shop for the purchase of my two newest Valentine paintings, but when I was going to press enter with the whole article written, the paintings were already gone! (Congratulations and many thanks to the two sweet ladies who just adopted my dolls!). Anyhow, tonight I've added immediately the prints in my shop, so in case you missed the original you can still get a lovely limited edition, signed and numbered by me and professionally printed on a museum quality super thick paper. If you hjaven't already tried out one of my prints, well you won't regret it, I promise. ;)


"Love Will Keep you Warm" Find Prints In My shop

I feel like to remind that if you purchase a print with economy shipping today, it will take around 4 weeks to be delivered internationally, so they won't arrive in time for Valentine day, unless you ask for expedited shipping, which is more expensive. These will look great on display all year long anyway. We should be in Love all year long, right? In Love with Life, with ourselves, with our passions, with our pets, with the friends and family that everyday stay close to us and show us their support and affection, right? Love is not just a Valentine day thing ;)

Shows and new originals available by Simona Candini




Hi my lovelies, 
Here's a couple of new originals available.
The first one is titled "Kindred Souls" for the show at Alexi Era Gallery in Eugene Oregon. I decied to eperiment with black and white. I really like how it turned out the glowing effect! I've also choosen a majestic frame for this one and I've added sacred hearts milagros and stars to it.
Who doesn't want to adopt two lovely sphynx cats and a little fairy doll? You can find the direct link to the artwork here.

The second one is titled "The Eyes of Sharbat Gula" and it'a for the Wonderlust show at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco, CA opening on Dec. 10.  The show is about travelling and exploring the wonders of our beautiful world. I was inspired by the iconic lady of the most famous cover of the National Geographic, Sharbat Gula, and I wanted to represent her as one of my skully girls. A boat is sailing across the folds of her mantle, guided by the moon and its lunar phases. I hope you like her!*** UPDATE: "The Eyes Of Sharbat Gula" is already adopted****

I'm working also on a new series of skully girls, inspired by my all time favorite Hollywood actress and pinups for Penumbra Gallery in Portugal. Please keep an eye on my facebook and instagram pages because most collectors are contacting the gallery while I'm posting work in progress there. If you haven't done it yet, activete the "get notification" flag, so you won't miss my posts.

Did you set up your Christmas tree yet? 
I've just adopted one (a fake/ecological one)  and I'm starting to collect some ornaments :) I so love this time of the year!

Solo Show at Swoon gallery LA is Online

My dearests,
The "Sacred Hearts" Solo show is now online at Swoon Gallery LA. It is possible to schedule an appointment with Ally (and me) to come see the art in Laguna Beach at swoongalleryla@gmail.com
It's possible to see the show online at this link with all the info about medium, size and prices.

Prints of all the artworks will be in my Etsy shop as soon as I will be able to prepare the files for printing. These are more difficult than normal because of the irregular shape of the image and because of the application of the sacred heart, which is 3dimensional. So It will take me a while to have the files ready. I hope to be able to have them up in my shop in December or Jauary at the latest.
I've really put a lot of effort into these artworks, because I was very inspired by the new materials. Most of the artworks are oil on wood slices, which I choose because they allowed me to apply the metal milagros directly onto the painting with screws. Also I love the combination of wood, paint and metal, I think it's soemething refreshing and a little different for me and I enjoyed a lot to work on these.
I'm eclectic and as you know sometimes I like to paint on paper, sometimes use graphites, sometimes oli on canvas, on board or wood. Sometimes I enjoy to paint vinyl toys. I hope you like the variety in my work. I could not repeat every day the same old thing, I really love variety and exploring new ways to be creative. And I'm always happy to hear suggestions and new ideas from you :)

A couple of sets of holiday greetings cards left!

I love holiday season!!! Such a magical time of the Year!
Do you have any special plans for this year? :)

These are hand-made greeting cards that I've personally created this year to send to my friends and collectors, even though unfortunately I don't have the address of everyone of them :(
Anyway... I have only a couple of these lovely "Rudolph" cards left (sets of 5 cards) and I think It is nice to offer them for purchase because sometimes I receive requests but rarely I have any card available because I don't have much time to create them on a regular basis. If you purchase from USA before Saturday, I Will ship from LA while I'm there (19-23 Nov), so It is sure that you Will get them in a few days. Cost for one set of 5 "Rudolph" blank cards with envelopes is $20.00 + $3.50 shipping in USA ($10.00 for other destinations). If interested please e-mail at simonacandini@hotmail.com
