The Charmaine Ava Print was just released and is a Limited Edition of 100 people! I absolutely am obsessed with her silhouettes. I have mentioned my love of cameos in plenty of previous articles so of course when I saw this for sale I couldn’t resist. The “faces” of her silhouettes are so delicate and peaceful. I generally like dark or creepy art but Charmaine’s silhouettes are different. My mother always had a thing for cameos and I guess now I do as well. She was very into Victorian styled anything and lets be honest cameos always seem so classy. There is something very hand me down about it but in a good way. You value it so much you want to pass on the beauty to someone you care about which I suppose is how I feel about her silhouettes. I have to say her other artwork, which I have also mention before, I really am not a big fan but her silhouettes just speak to me.
The Ava is beautiful! I am not sure if it is the fact that I am jealous of her hair or the little heart she wears on her cheek. In high school I started a trend by wearing stickers or stick on earrings in about the same spot. The print isn’t I am sure what most people would fall in love with due to its simplicity but I think that is what makes these silhouettes so beautiful. You have the option to imagine whatever you want about the woman in the print but you can see so much more in it than just a silhouette.
I also purchased the Madison because the print was only $20 so I really couldn’t resist to be honest. I also like pirate ships and I really really really heart octopuses!! I really had no choice. Not to mention there was a special coupon“>coupon code COLLECTORS to receive 10% off of your purchase which I also could not resist. The details in this silhouette are probably my favorite besides the Little Houses print (yes, I own that too). The detail in the ship on her head is amaze balls! I really can’t wait to frame and hang these!
