When a Toaster just doesn't do it

Some of my most popular works have been my text paintings based simply on words  - on the theme of Love, sleep, happiness, some poetry or words that are inspirational and descriptive to a situation or place like a kitchen or bedroom.

These make fantastic wedding or anniversary gifts for those special occasions when a toaster just doesn't do it. In addition to having a deep meaning they are a sharp contemporary focal point for any living space. The above examples are from my stock texts with words from 1 Corinthians 13, a poem about love in a relationship and words which sum up the purity of true love.

I also create these paintings in a variety of colours. What you may not have considered is that these can be personalised to your favourite words of inspiration too. the examples below show how people have chosen their won words to suit their story, or have added a name and a date to make it a unique original gift.

It costs no extra to do this and I'm always happy create a unique piece to suit your narrative, theme or colour. So get writing and when you're scratching your head wondering what on earth to get for that special christening, anniversary or wedding gift, give them the gift of art with a little input from your own creative side. You will be the envy of all the other guests and let's face it, it will be more appreciated than a toaster!

Paintings are 20x20 inches and 24x24 inches in size and are made up of 49 and 100 letters respectively... enjoy yourself creating. For more art ideas visit my website: www.simonsgallery.com
