New posters! And framing suggestions...

Posted by Kim Haskins on

I've just released four new high-quality poster prints at just £9 each - the collection is growing! Three of my popular love-themed 'ink' designs are included in the set: Loving Feline, You're Purrfect and Sweetheart.

Over 100 people kindly offered their opinion on Facebook.com/KimHaskinsArt and Instagram.com/Haskins.Kim over which print of my painting 'Purrty' was most appealing to them: the one with punchy, bright colours or the one with soft pastel hues? Around 30% opted for the latter, which means that a print of 'Purrty' in her most vivid form will be trialled as a poster print and greetings card which will go on sale on the website on 20 June 2016. The other image may be printed later in the year. 'Purrty' is originally a painting on gold leaf with a coating of resin over...
