This is a fine art print of "Dab of Inspiration" an original acrylic ink painting by Olga Cuttell (originally done on watercolor paper). It's been printed on Epson Hot Press Natural fine art archival paper in 5x7, 8x10, 11x14, 16x20 and now 24x30 inch sizes. It is no coincidence that these are all standard sizes, as Oladesign is committed to helping its customers enjoy Olga's work affordably and with as little additional effort/expense as possible. Please note that this print is also available in 8x10, 11x14, 16x20 & 24x30 canvas prints as well as various wood and metal print sizes. Paper prints come hand signed by the artist.

"Dab of Inspiration" has a funny story surrounding its creation. I was in the midst of the worse creative slump, where for months I didn't really like anything I was working on, when Mike (my husband) and I had what he calls a 'tiff'. It ended with him storming out and going to a friend's to watch the hockey game. Alone, and charged with energy, I picked up a brush and just started. When Mike came home, I had already gone to bed, but sitting on the stairs waiting for him were no less than three finished paintings. The first of those three was "Dab of Inspiration" and for about two months following, I felt as though I could do no wrong with a brush in my hand. Sometimes you just need to let it out. 

"Dab of Inspiration" finds its closest color match in the collection in the form of "Gift of Peace", but also hangs well with many of the deeper blue pieces in the collection, such as "Four Moons", "Deep Down" and "Moorish Garland". 

In my home, Dab is paired with Deep Down over the fireplace. Choosing the right frame for it was crucial to bring it together with the room, but I couldn't be happier. Like most of the birds in my collection, Dab has the rustic feel that makes it a perfect fit for most cottages ad country kitchens. 

The original piece was done using an acrylic ink on watercolour paper, using a technique that is similar to watercolor but tends to keep more vibrant hews and dries permanently to the paper; enabling Olga to create richly layered pieces that would be impossible with traditional watercolour.

Many prints are now also available as iPhone 5/5s, 6/6s, 6+ and Samsung Galaxy S5 & S6 cellphone covers, and a variety of other beautiful products, such as Greeting Cards, Pendants, Coasters, and even Pocket Mirrors. Please feel free to inquire about the availability of your favourite designs any time.
