Always the bearer of useful info, as a follow up to our previous post http://www.fineartblog.co.uk/?p=443 which had Doug’s previous collections 1st - 6th, we now showcase the 6th (again) the 7th and the 8th Collection, his latest: ‘Smiles Allround’
Please keep an eye on the blog for our commentary on the ‘Smiles Allround’ which will come very soon
A super quickie today, we wanted to bring you a sneak peak of one of the latest Doug Hyde new releases which are being released within the first 2 weeks of September 2010:
The title is yet unknown however it loveable image of one of Doug’s characters in a tent, with his trusted dog asleep next to him and a lantern throwing light on them, a wonderful piece
This March 2010 sees the release of Doug Hyde’s 6th major collection & it’s called the ‘Time Of My Life Collection.’
When the images are released, the above link will be updated with images & rest assured you will then be some of the first to see them in all their glory!!!
The set features: 4 sculpture, 5 limited edition prints, a set of 6 miniature prints & for the first time ever Doug has released a painting on glass & it looks amazing!
If you are interested the following pictures are also clickable and will show you the 5 previous Doug Hyde collections:
I was lucky enough to attend the previews of these new releases and they are set to be his most coloured and fun packed yet, as usual with any of the top UK artists, we recommend ordering/ pre-ordering early as these limited editions will go very quickly indeed.
We all know Doug Hyde creates inspiring art that puts a smile on the face of everyone but did you know that he releases ‘Charity limited edition prints?’…
…art from which a percentage of the profits goes to a good cause.
Yes it’s true, the UK’s most popular contemporary artist: the ever-optimistic, fantastic, artistic Doug Hyde is also generous to a fault. One such painting, called ‘Loved’ was originally released through one outlet in the UK and a small percentage of profits went to the ‘Families for Children’ adoption charity - The piece has never been on general release in the UK.
Now available from January 2010 for anyone to buy for the first time, this cute picture has been released with a special Time Limited £ offer!…up until Feb 14th 2009
Fans that missed this piece the first time around will be thrilled. As you can see, it features a little boy hugging a huge teddy bear. I find this piece very emotive, making me think of my own childhood, of love, hope and happiness. So it is very apt that it was originally released for the ‘Families for Children’ Charity.
Don’t forget the ever popular Hearts & Smiles! This was another title that was released to benefit a National Charity called: ‘Look Good…Feel Better’ which is a charity that helps female cancer patients, Look Good! & Feel Better!…simple! As with ‘Loved’ a small percentage of profits again went to charity.
Do use the links at the bottom to find out more about the charity & remember that many of these charities rely on the generous donations of the public to continue their vital work. The team at Fineartblog would like to thank in advance everyone who decides to donate to these charities.
