#WearableArt Brooches Fee for Hendrick’s Gin –

A number of months in the past, Hendrick’s Gin despatched over a bottle of their gin to my condominium as a part of a PR present. It’s no secret that I really like a finely-crafted gin. Additionally, gin is scrumptious. And I like it when there’s an alcohol supply – who doesn’t!

All through the pandemic / lockdown, I’ve been portray to maintain myself sane and I’ve been impressed by every kind of issues. Quotations, a passage I learn in a guide, expressionist work, desires, vegetation, you title it. When this specific Hendrick’s Gin bottle arrived, it was accompanied by rose & cucumber illustrations as a result of the gin is meant to be infused with properly, rose and cucumber.

I believed that was fairly odd. Who considered placing collectively rose AND cucumber? I like cucumber with my gin and tonic however I’m not significantly keen on rose. I wasn’t positive I used to be going to benefit from the gin till I made a drink for myself and was pleasantly shocked. I favored it!

My mind determined it was a good suggestion to attempt crimson and inexperienced collectively on a portray. Just like my feeling odd concerning the mixture of rose & cucumber, I’ve at all times been uncertain of placing simply crimson and inexperienced colours collectively on a canvas. I believed it finest to start out on my mini-canvas, a 2.5 inches in diameter brooch. At worst, if it didn’t work out, I may merely paint over it.

The odd coloration mixture labored out! After that I needed to {photograph} the brooch together with the gin bottle and the packaging in order that I may publish it on Instagram and make the brooch accessible on my on-line store. I made it clear that the mini-painting thought was not affiliated with the model in ay manner – it was impressed by the gin however the model hadn’t requested me to do something.

One factor led to a different and after a couple of weeks later, the model received in contact with me ( by way of their PR company ) and commissioned me to color one other comparable brooch impressed by the gin and expressed their intentions to buy each the brooches.

To say that I used to be thrilled, is an understatement. You see, that is the primary model ever that has commissioned me to create artwork! It was like a dream come true. EPIC.

The brooches had been signed, sealed and shipped out to the model of their packing containers and with their Certificates of Authenticity. Listed here are some images of the brooches and the gin.
