The Bee Release is Coming Aug 4th!

I have been busy as a bee creating lots of new artwork and lovely treasures for my big Bee release August 4th, 9AM PST on Etsy Here! This is an extra special release because I’ve partnered with Planet Bee Foundation and am fundraising to sponsor a brand new hive for the School For The Arts in San Francisco! Proceeds from my Bee Release Aug 4th will go towards making this new hive possible, and help educate students who also love art and helping the environment! Planet Bee Foundation is a 501(c)3 environmental education nonprofit based in San Francisco. Through their school programs, corporate teambuilding workshops, and public education, Planet Bee hopes more people will care for our environment and take action to have a positive impact on our interconnected world. To learn more about the work they do, visit here.

And by supporting my Bee Release, you can help your local bee populations too! My Etsy coordinator Asami will be adding bee conservation-approved Bentley wildflower seed packets to the first 150 orders shipping inside the USA. Different countries internationally have different rules about importing things like seeds, so these wildflower seeds can go to addresses inside the USA. But if you want to help bees in your area too, check out your local bee conservation organizations for info on how to help!

I have new signed and limited edition prints coming to Etsy Here on Aug 4th 9AM PST. There’ll be signed prints of Lemon Drop, The Beekeeper, Trinity and Alveare. And I’ve made hand-embellished limited edition fine art prints of Queen Beeatrice, Alveare, and Trinity too! I added metallic gold embellishments to each one, in limited and artist proof editions of between 2, 3, 8, 11 and 13pcs only. These beauties are made on heavy archival 300gsm Entrada paper and come signed & numbered, and are each embellished to give them a special personal touch!

The metallic gold paint really pops in the light! It’s amazing as a detail for the honeycombs and adding a touch of sparkly magic to the prints.

I’ve made a brand new collection of original bee paintings too! These little buzzy, bumbly beauties are between 2-4″ in size and come framed. I’m so inspired by bees, as primary pollinators in our natural world, I wanted to make them all different colors. Even a rainbow spectrum one!

I had loads of fun painting these little cuties, and I hope you love them as much as I do! Since they’re smaller petite paintings, they’re a great way for more types of collectors or fans who are new to collecting original art to get an original artwork in their own collections. Each petite bee painting is one-of-a-kind though, and small originals usually find homes quickly, so be sure to check here right at 9AM PST on August 4th.

Vintage plate fans, rejoice! I’ve made a wonderful selection of new bee-themed printed vintage plates together with my artisan plate printer at Beatup Creations featuring my bee themed artworks! There will be a variety of plate sizes and prices, from little petite saucer sized plates, up to big magnificent vintage plates. Each one is truly one-of-a-kind and no plate can be replicated twice, so if you fall in love with one, check right at 9AM PST release time here to add yours to your own hive!

Look at this lovely little family of rainbow bee printed saucers! I had 10 matching saucers and now each one is one-of-a-kind featuring its own rainbow bee. So even if an original oil painting isn’t in your future, you can bring one of my super colorful little bumble-buddies home in a different way as a one-of printed plate!

Handmade necklaces, one-of-a-kind totes, and one-of apparel are joining my Bee Release August 4th at 9AM PST! Each piece will have only 1 in stock, so check Etsy early Aug 4th at 9AM for the most selection.

Can you even bee-lieve this amazing towel?!

These scarves are amazing! You’re going to love them even more in person. Each one is handmade and hand-cut in Canada, and is machine washable on cold (they like to be hang dried!). Supporting local businesses is really important to me, so by collecting one-of and hand-made goodies like these scarves, you’re helping local and small businesses too! Proceeds of all my Bee Release goodies are going towards sponsoring a new bee hive with Planet Bee Foundation in the School For The Arts in San Francisco, and USA orders will receive a packet of bee-conservation approved wildflowers to plant and help their local bees while supplies last. So let’s join together spreading love, education and art in support of the bees August 4th 9AM PST right here!

Hand Painted No Ordinary Love Statue

AttemptedMurder_logos1sm

Hi guys! I’m Tasha, Camilla’s operations coordinator- her helper and executive llama extraordinaire. I get to share the cool news and projects Camilla works on here on the blog, and we’d like to share a Camilla project I’ve put together. I’ve hand-painted one of Camilla’s No Ordinary Love statues in a different colorway I’m calling “Attempted Murder”, patterned after Camilla’s painting “Aida”.

Aida_sm

I’ve repainted the statue from top to bottom in the new palette, with little sculpted mice and eggs in her hair. The original No Ordinary Love statues are Blue & White – even the white crows have blue tinting in them.

NOL Comparison 2

Camilla is an amazing artist and mentor, and it’s a pleasure to get to share how her work inspires the painting I do. This one-of-a-kind colourway will be with me at my Designer Con booth #911 in Pasadena this weekend, November 8-9 at the Pasadena Convention Center.  If you’re in the area, swing by and say Hi!

NOL Comparison1

If you haven’t collected your own No Ordinary Love statue yet, we have a few here on The Camilla Store. Does Camilla inspire you to make new artwork too? Show us at info@camilladerrico.com !
