Hola! Welcome back  

An update from me to let you know that we are still meandering in Mendoza, post-lockdown. We can now head out to shops, restaurants and parks - with restrictions and social distancing. 
it has been fantastic to get out and about in our local neighborhood.


The autumn here is beautiful. Mendoza is a city of tree-lined streets and many plazas and parks that are crowned with richly-hued deciduous trees; laden with leaves. That, paired with the dry and dusty earth and the biscuit-coloured buildings, and I have a perfect palette from which to work  


On the home front, we are still homeschooling our three children. It has its daily challenges! And impacts hugely on my ability to be creative and get into the studio to paint. That said, I’m inspired daily by my surroundings and am slowly getting together a new body of work. 

Keep in touch via my Instagram account for all the images of daily life here in Mendoza and my latest paintings from the studio. 

Best wishes. Saludos!

Georgie


NEW YEAR, NEW WORK & COLLABORATIONS January 31 2019, 0 Comments

Hello! Summer school holidays have been in busy, noisy, happy full swing.

I've barely picked up a brush! I am now officially chomping at the bit to get into the studio and start some work on some exciting new projects and paintings. 

These are all little (25 x 25cm) colour studies that serve me as a guide for colour and composition for my larger paintings. I currently have three big landscapes on the go that speak to this.

These paintings are great, affordable original artworks.

Hello lovely people!

I'm excited to let you know that the first of my original paintings are now available in Auckland. Endemic World on Ponsonby Road have four small works for sale and I will be sending more paintings North just as soon as I can finish them.

 

Endemic World has a fantastic selection of original art available, as well as beautiful affordable art prints and a great website for online shopping. I'm super pleased to be working with them.

Meanwhile, the studio is full of new works on the go, as I complete some commissions and explore some new ideas. Stay tuned!

Thanks & best wishes,

Georgie.

SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL! July 31 2017, 0 Comments

Hello!

Four new small original paintings just released to the web shop.

Don't miss out on your chance to own a unique artwork, before they disappear to the galleries! These four paintings are available for a short time from the studio at the 'artist direct' price (ie. without gallery commission added). 

Small artworks are perfect for brightening up mantlepieces and shelf displays, next to the bed, on bathroom walls or beside the kitchen window...

All works are in acrylic with oil and chalk pastel highlights.

Best wishes,

Georgie.

PS. If you would like any of these pieces framed-up in the signature Belle Hawk style, (narrow pale timber surround), just email me and I'm happy to arrange this.

 

 


Artwork Launch December 10 2016, 1 Comment

Hello!

We had a wonderful launch event for the new Belle Hawk Artworks last evening! Thanks so much to all who helped this evening come to life; especially Amy and Benjamin from Benjamin Black Goldsmiths who hosted the evening in their elegant space. Bubbly and canapés, the grand piano playing and lots of our favourite people in the room. What a treat!

For me it was super-satisfying to hang my paintings on the walls and present them to the world. (Well, to Nelson at least). All unsold paintings are still available to purchase in our webshop. Digital gicleé prints in A3 and A2 size of all paintings are also available - please enquire.

Happy weekend,

Georgie & Bee  x 


New Collage Collection - beautiful gifts! December 05 2016, 0 Comments

This charming collection of A4 collages is the latest addition to the Belle Hawk Art store. These are hand-crafted using the same complimentary spring colour palette featured in our launch collection of paintings.

Heavy watercolour paper, signed and posted flat on foam board with a cellophane wrap, these make fantastic gifts. They look great in a group or just simply framed up in white.

First release of six collages, with six more to follow.

We hope you enjoy!
