We are thrilled to team up for the second time with Melbourne Artist Deb McNaughton to bring you THE snazziest picnic gear of the Summer.
Deb explains how one of her fave designs, Leopard Love Story came to be.
STORY TELLING THROUGH ART
"Sometimes, I just paint abstract shapes and lines and squiggles until I’m satisfied it looks pretty enough to sell. But not this one. This one is a story about two leopards who never gave up on their love for each other.
Although separated by distance during the great migration in the Serengeti, their love song stayed strong and their hearts beat in sync to the same tune. They were destined to be together but it was going to take courage and determination.
They crossed raging rivers riddled with crocodiles and dry desert plains with no end in sight until finally, they were reunited and could walk through the rest of their lives together. Stronger, wiser and braver from their individual experiences.
Can you see the symbolic references between the artwork and the story?
Can you see the matching hearts amongst the leopard spots and on their noses?
Can you see the path they walk together once reunited and the colours to match the two different leopards?
Can you see the river? And the desert?"
