☆ LilliBean Designs Spotlight [art for sale]

mixed media original painting 8.3 x 5.8" (210 x 148 mm)
Available here

One hot summer, when I was about 10, we found a baby fruit bat stuck in our pool filter. It was such a cute wee thing. I immediately wanted to make him my pet, and I called it Vamp (or something equally original)

For three days, Vamp lived in our basement laundry, I feed him fruit, I held him, I loved him, but he never recovered from being in the pool filter for who knows how long.

Ever since that summer, I have had a slight obsession with bats. I wonder sometimes if obsessions can be hereditary, because one morning over breakfast Bean told me she would like a pet bat when she was 5,  and that she would be a bat girl.  

So Bean and poor wee Vamp were the inspiration behind this painting. And the original Bat Girl painting is available for sale here

Do you have a slightly odd obsession. I would love to hear your stories.

Bat Girl's fine print:
Bat Girl is a mixed media original painting on quality water colour paper. (a collaged novel paper base, acrylic paint and pencil.) It is 8.3 x 5.8" (210 x 148 mm) and will slide easily into a standard sized frame with out alteration. It is finished with a quality matt acrylic varnish (applied to painting after photo to avoid glare). I have signed and dated it and it comes with its own certificate of authenticity. Color intensity may vary from screen to screen. Art work is copyright Kirstin McCulloch

  1. Oh poor Vamp but I'll bet he lived three days longer than he would have had you not found him.

    Love your Bean/Vamp inspired painting.
