Inspired by my upcoming flamingo party, I love the contrast between the gentle vintage tones of the original piece and the shocking pink joy of the comical flamingos!
The theme of something old something new has opened up a torrent of new ideas for me. I've always fancied doing an upcycled piece of art as I love vintage pieces myself and have a whole collection of damaged and unloved relics of the last few decades.
This piece probably dates from the 80's it features a pretty floral design in the centre with a patterned band on the inside. There is faded gilding in a band on the outer edge which has been painted over adding extra detail and interest. Originally made by Johnson Bros, it has been lovingly "pimped" over a number of days with fun and bright flamingos, hand painted using traditional techniques.
I think what I love the most about these pieces has been the challenge of painting my modern artwork whilst complimenting the existing design.
This piece has wear and tear typical of vintage pieces, which all adds to it's charm, a truly one-off piece! The idea that you're giving a much loved piece, which has lost it's original place and purpose, the chance to be used and loved again!.
