Celtic Knot borders

These are based off an old manuscript (and I wish I could remember which one) and since I did them digitally I could easily change the colour scheme. These are for my online shop on Zazzle, for cards and such where customers can put their own text inside the border. Since blue and green are my favourite colours I usually stick with those in my designs but I did a red version for a change.

Seaweed and Seashell painted border

I have an upcoming commission from a local Pilates & yoga studio that wants a large chalkboard decorated with a sea-inspired border and the timetable of classes. After a few sketches, this is what the owner of the studio liked. I decided to make this digital version into its own thing since I liked it so much. Very summery.

Book of Durrow Celtic knot carpet page

This is a version of a ‘carpet page’ decoration in the Book of Durrow, an 8th century illuminated manuscript from the British Isles done in the Insular style. Carpet pages were pages where the illumination filled the entire space rather than having a mixture of writing and painting, and also the image looks rather like a carpet.

Orange, Cinnamon & Pine Cone Wreath

One day in December a couple years ago, I was passing by a home furnishing store in my town and noticed a gorgeous natural wreath made with dried oranges and cinnamon sticks. It really caught my eye and I went home to find a reference photo and start a digital painting of it. Here is the result.

Happy 2018! I usually go to bed relatively early on New Year’s Eve for some reason.

Trying to get back to my artwork after the holidays is a little difficult since my kids have been off school since the 22nd of December and it’s HARD to get things done when they’re home all day. However, I managed to eke out this design the last few days and am happy with it. I will put it on some products in my Zazzle shop and hope it sells!

The design comes from a medieval Greek illuminated manuscript that I adapted to make more Scottish.
