I updated “Owls Over The Stock Exchange” for the new Society6 All Over Graphic Tee template.
These are available now on the store.

German painter Jeanne Mammen was born in Berlin in 1890, however she spent her early years living in Paris. Here Mammen’s formative years were immersed in a love of French literature and the arts of the age. The artist’s privileged upbringing enabled her to study painting and drawing at various top academies in Paris, Brussels and Rome.

Painted from a dream as part of the “Postcards From The Other Side Of Sleep” series.
A depiction of politicians talking amongst themselves whilst the people are engulfed.
Original is watercolour on paper.
I have uploaded some paintings done by the Old Me Way Back When onto Society6.
These are from a series I made call Postcards from the Other Side Of Sleep, they were all inspired by dreams I had at the time.
After some research it appeared to me that Society6 seemed like the perfect place for a time strapped part-time artist to get their work out into the world.
All their products are of high quality and I get a little percentage for each sale made.
I will be making some signed prints of these in due course which I will sell directly and therefore get payed slightly more.
In the meantime please take a look at my store on Society6 and if you don’t feel like buying anything but have an account, a few likes here or there would mean the world, raise profile and would be rewarded with kind thoughts.
