My Aussie Valentine: Surprise Your Love Last Minute

This Valentine’s Day, Bluethumb has joined forces with one of our biggest stars, Sally Browne, to commission a stunning, limited-edition print. The piece is entitled My Aussie Valentine, and features a beautiful array of Australian natives such as Banksia, Leucadendron, Gum Leaves and Kangaroo Paw in a bright, romantic colour scheme.

Flowers for your love? My Aussie Valentine by Sally Browne.

The prints are a steal at just $99, and we’ll be donating 30% of profits (our commission) to The Big Issue, an organisation committed to supporting and creating work opportunities for homeless, disadvantaged and marginalised people. After all, Valentine’s Day is all about spreading the love!

“I’m super excited to be collaborating with Bluethumb on this special Valentine’s Day artwork,” says Sally. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for our romantic collectors to support a great cause while surprising someone special with some ‘forever flowers’ in the form of an artwork. There will only be 14 prints available of this work ever, and they have been produced exclusively for this Bluethumb campaign.”

In terms of the design, Sally says “I wanted to create a piece that people would be happy to look at long after Valentine’s day, and it’s no secret that I’m mad about Aussie flora and fauna. Rather than red roses which are traditionally associated with love, I decided to paint an energetic still life drawing featuring our weird and wonderful native flowers in romantic reds and pinks. Aussie natives are unique, beautiful, long lasting, resilient and wild, just like True Love.”

The best part? We’re offering same day delivery on February 14th in metropolitan Sydney and Melbourne. No need to worry about the traditional, rushed outing on your lunch break. Just order the print before 10am and you can rest assured it’ll reach its destination by the end of the day.

You’re still welcome to make an order if you live outside Sydney and Melbourne, and we’ll do our best to get it to your better half on time. That said, we recommend that you get in quickly as we can’t guarantee timely delivery.

Plus, at this special price and with only fourteen editions, who knows how long they’ll last?
