Happy Holidays from Kimberley Eddy
As I am wrapping up in the studio for the year, I just wanted to take a moment to wish you and yours Happy Holidays!
Thank you for support throughout 2021; whatever it looked like. Whether you told a friend about my artwork, liked a post on social media, purchased an artwork, sent me a message about my work, took a virtual workshop with me, or cheered me on in another way. Every single one of you matter. You encourage me and that means a lot. The thought that my art may bring you a moment of joy or peace helps me feel connected to you. I want to send a special thank you to Made in the Maritimes, Argyle Fine Art Gallery, and Bermuda Society of Arts. You are out there on the front lines and bridging that space between my studio and the ocean art lovers. I truly appreciate you.
Last year I debuted these Ocean Slice Ornaments and they were a big hit with you all and they sold out. For 2021 each wood slice was sustainably sourced from dead-fall wood, hand sliced and sanded, with purified Nova Scotia sand sculpted into each piece. They really do make a sweet little gift that can be hung on the tree or on the wall all year long. Each one is a one-of-a-kind mini artwork. I have just restocked these little beauties at Made in the Maritimes. Get them in store or online while they last!
I also sculpt purified sand into paintings in my ongoing Sand Series. (Two pictured below) It enhances the coastal vibe and textural feel. More Sand Series and other seascape paintings like "At Peggy's Cove Watching the Waves" (Also below) are available at Made in the Maritimes.
Cheeseboards/Charcuterie Boards! What can I say except thank you! Every time I create them, you buy them. They are sealed with FDA approved food safe resin, so you can load them up with all the goodies. I made lots this season, but they have sold out. Stay tuned in the new year. There will be more!
It really has been busy in the studio. I was filled with this creative flow that just had to spill over into some resin and sand beaches. Some were inspired by Nova Scotia and some were inspired by Bermuda. All have purified sand sculpted into them. There were 4 remaining at the time of writing this.
I thought you might like to see a couple of the finished pieces. Resin is so glossy and hard to photograph without reflection that it always looks better in person.
I have been told that these tile Wave and Seaglass Coasters are favourites for hostess and teacher gifts. I have just restocked them at Made in the Maritimes.
ART-VENT! I am excited to be doing this fun mini show with Argyle Fine Art Gallery. It is like an advent calendar but with art! A small piece is revealed each day from December 1st to 24th. Here are some of them below. You can follow along with me and Argyle Fine Art Gallery on our social media pages an contact the gallery if you spot a piece that you love.
The resin beach painting below is also available from Argyle Fine Art Gallery. It's 8"x8" and called "Some Days the Pieces Just Fall into Place". See it in person at the gallery or send them an email if you want to give this calm beachy art a home. firstname.lastname@example.org
I am really interested in the translucency of water and I enjoy bringing that into my work. These ocean agate coasters show it perfectly when held up to the light. These ones have sold, but I do have a few available at Made in the Maritimes. Each one is handmade and unique.
To my Bermuda friends, I have a few pieces available at Bermuda Society of Arts including this one below. Please get in touch with the gallery if you would like to see my work.
I want to thank you again for being here with me on this oceany art journey. As the year draws to a close, I wish you a holiday filled with light, love and peace. May 2022 be a year of hope and healing. From my family to yours, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
