essentially this is a drawing of my mother .. and the red buildings in the background represent Dunsborough ...
I always drew Dunsborough as a red town - maybe because it felt hot and strong to me
You cant quite see in the photo, but the base of the drawing has insignias in the earth, icons of worms, bones and rocks
The woman is carrying her baskets of real animals, and the hills and paddocks
But what really makes the drawing, in my opinion, is the people flying in the sky - it is a common theme in my art
To me, this is the spirit of the universe, the souls of the dead, the eternal dark matter that surrounds us, loves us, and has our backs
Your environment is a reflection who you are and how you choose to express yourself - and in this ecclectic world no-one wants to look like they live in a cookie cutter of Ikea - everyone is special and unique - you are different
And so are these prints - they are rare and beautiful and limited.
going shopping has been made by a short run lithographic print of 900 copies throughout the world...so if you divide the 7.4 billion on the planet .... it means there is a mind bogglingly small percentage of people can own one - its like winning lotto
Each limited edition is hand signed and numbered by Mandy - as the prints are sold, the price goes up.
going shopping is 63.5cm x 49cm ... 25inches x 19.3inches
They are made on a high quality, 220gsm, monsa satin paper stock - so they are smooth - no fake canvas-like bumps , and it is the strongest paper that doesnt crease when you roll it into a mailing tube - but these prints are delivered flat packed to ensure their safety
The reason these limited edition prints were created is to fund experimental water saving gardens, art projects and the building of large sculptures
On a property in Beverley bought especially for this purpose - We are slowley creating the cement building blocks to build our very first garden-and eventually a aquaponic sculpture park...its truly experimental
This limited edition print will be sent to you FOR FREE - flatpacked !!
The package is enormous - and if you have some fun with wrapping paper, ribbons and bows - they make REALLY IMPRESSIVE PRESENTS
My print has just arrived & I must say that it took my breath away, it is so beautiful. Even more so than I thought when ordering it. The way it was packaged for delivery was top notch.
I hope that you have another available as I would like to order one for my friend.
Kindest regards "

Thank you Mandy and best wishes with your new venture and I would like to buy another print but will have to save some dollars first 😊.
