Raspberry Flavoured Windows – The Shop

Raspberry Flavoured Windows Limited Edition Art

Hello lovelies, can you hear the fanfare playing in the background? No! How about the drum roll? No?? Surely you can. I’m letting you into a little secret, guess what? Yep, that’s right. The clue is in the title. I’m only launching a THE shop here on Raspberry Flavoured Windows! Eeekkkkk! Please be gentle with me. Well currently it’s more like a single product but hey, from small acorns and all that……

 

Raspberry Flavoured Windows - The Shop

LIMITED EDITION BOLLOCKS ART

 

For a while now I’ve been receiving messages telling me I should sell some of the things I make. I have to say at first my confidence wasn’t high enough to give this a go. I mean what if it’s a flop? What if no one likes what I make? What if the world ends? I mean as a serial procrastinator ‘What If’ seems to occupy too much of my thinking time. And then I thought ‘BOLLOCKS’ to it. Fuck It!! I mean to coin a rather naff phrase, ‘one life, live it’! And that’s what I’m going to be doing from now on. And to celebrate my first piece of Raspberry Flavoured Windows art in the shop it’s aptly titled ‘Bollocks’. To be closely followed by ‘Fuck It’.

 

The application of the word ‘Bollocks’……

THE BOLLOCKS – The best/brilliant

BOLLOCKS – Shit!!

UTTER BOLLOCKS – A lie

BOLLOCKING – Getting a severe reprimand

STARK BOLLOCK NAKED – Nude

BOLLOCKS TO IT – I shall ignore it!

 

I mean, come on, no other word that I can think of covers a whole multitude of emotions! And well, we are quite a sweary household too so it’s apt. And I like my art on the dramatic and grand scale too. I do feel art should be a conversation piece, big, bold and in your face. Maybe it’s a compensating method  for me being the total opposite. Ermm except when I’ve had a drink and someone turns the music up!

CLOSE UP OF THE RESIN FINISH AND HAND PAINTED LETTERING

 

You see I want art that isn’t mass produced, I don’t want to see on my walls what I see on everyone elses. It’s a bit like that must have dress that sells out, I don’t want that either. I don’t sit easily with the follow the crowd mentality. Go shoot me! As always I want my home to reflect those that live inside it. You know me well enough by now to know I encourage everyone to make their home a reflection of the personalities that sit within its walls.

IT REALLY POPS IN THE EVENING LIGHT

 

Swearing in our home is a coping mechanism for my autistic boys. Which is odd as the worst I have ever heard my father say is ‘Bloody’ so I lay the blame entirely with Mr RFW. He can swear with the best of them. But actually now that I know it helps my boys let off stress I don’t mind it so much. And now the boys are older we have some of the best swearing contests. It’s amazing just how many random swear words you can string together for hilarity purposes. Although the jury is still out on the ‘C’ word!!

YOU GOTTA LOVE A GOOD SWEAR WORD!

 

So there you go, the start of a new adventure for me. God knows if it will take me anywhere but one has to try. Doesn’t one. So what do you think? Be gentle with me guys. Do you think it’s a goer? I’d love to hear what you have to think, just click on the speech bubble below to leave a comment. What word would you like to see next? I was contemplating ‘Discombobulated’ as it’s my favourite word but I will need at least 3 canvases, a whole bunch of patience and every swear word in my vocabulary to finish it!

    I love it. I kind of feel you should do a ‘what if..?’ one too! I like ‘discombobulated’ too. My favourite word is ‘debauchery’. And as for the ‘C’ word… it gets used a lot in our house. By Lee, especially. It used to make my blood boil, but now I’m used to it… and there are definitely a few people put there, which only that word can describe! Good luck! Xxx

      Aw thank you Evie, that’s so kind of you and thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. Hmmm, I like the idea of ‘Debauchery’ and I have become accustomed to the ‘C’word too, and yes, I can think of a few people it applies to too!! xx

    I bloody love it Rach (obvs), so how much is one of these lovely bollocking handmade images?

    I love this. And what I love even more is how you’ve been brave enough to pursue it. I totally get the fear as well but it’s limiting our greatness so we must ignore it! This sign is the dogs!!!! I can’t wait to see what else you add to the shop. Will be checking in regularly to see what you’re adding.
