Diving Gannets Painting From A Handmade Art Calendar by Heidi Piercy

Handmade Painted Art Calendar

A good few years ago, my boyfriend (now my husband) got me a blank calendar  and filled it with lots of great photos of all the places we’ve been. I’m not sure where he got it from, but I’m sure they could be found in art shops or online or you could make your own from scratch. He bought a spare blank one for me cause he thought I would like to make my own handmade art calendar too, so I made one for my parents. I filled it with paintings that had some significance to them and even though it was a few years ago and the calendar is very out of date now, they still have it on their wall.

Some Paintings From My Handmade Art Calendar:

Celtic Knots Painting From A Handmade Art Calendar by Heidi Piercy

A celtic knot painting inspired by The Book Of Kells, which my mum showed me when I was younger and taught me how to draw the knots.

The Elephant Sketch And Painting From A Handmade Art Calendar by Heidi Piercy

A pen sketch (with a splash of watercolour) of my parents little wooden elephant ornament. I love doing pen sketches but it doesn’t normally lend itself to colourful art, which I am another big fan of, so this piece is a mixture of two of my favourite styles.

Pippa Painting From A Handmade Art Calendar by Heidi Piercy

A painting of our lovely old dog called Pippa. She really was the most beautiful, adorable dog ever and this painting doesn’t do her justice at all but I hope I have managed to capture some of her character in it.

Diving Gannets Painting From A Handmade Art Calendar by Heidi PiercyOne of my favourite animals is the gannet. I used to find it amazing to see them diving into the sea to catch fish-I could watch them for hours. My mum is a brilliantly talented artist and she made a stained glass wall panel of diving gannets…and then I painted a picture of her wall art for the calendar.

You can get your own copies of the Diving Gannets painting at my Zazzle Store to put on your own wall or on a range of different products so check it out.
