My newest design for CND by GeaAusten  MY OH WOW ! MOMENT by GeaAusten


"critique from GreeRudi

GreenRudi Featured By Owner 16 hours ago
A stunningly intricate and detailed piece work reflecting Gea's obvious love of the natural world. Her prodigious talent means she has produced more pieces in a similar vein but each one is 100% unique and different from all the others. Clearly visible at the top is the world famous CND symbol designed by her father Eric Austen. The more you look, the closer you look, the more there is to see. Each time you look you something else, another detail you did not see before"

 he loved simplicity, and black and white.................. PEACE AND NATURE for CND by GeaAusten, FIRST PEACE, CND, BADGE ERIC AUSTEN by GeaAusten
,. when the whole Peace movement developed,,
many years later, he absolutely winced at what was done to the sign
,, the embellishments of all kinds..
so I think I have copied him, we were extremely close,,
and I worshipped him..
he taught me to draw and paint ,, from when I was three,, and we used to sit together when he was making his pottery and talk about what he would do next.. and different designs etc. I have always felt the simplicity of the design is very beautiful,,, and enough in itself.. I'm glad the Peace movement have embraced the sign, and that people have made it their own.. the extraordinary popularity of the design is due to something I believe is quite sacred ...

My father made the first Peace/C.N.D. badges , I was with him helping him chose which design to use.. as a child prodigy I started painting when I was very young, but have never really been commercial.. but now I want the world to see my art..Someone asked me if I had ever put the CND sign in one of my designs//I have once,,
but I have a very different attitude to it than I think a lot of peope would expect,
My father was a real Purist,,
he loved simplicity, and black and white,
,. when the whole Peace movement developed,,
many years later, he absolutely winced at what was done to the sign
,, the embellishments of all kinds..
so I think I have copied him, we were extremely close,,
and I worshipped him..
he taught me to draw and paint ,, from when I was three,, and we used to sit together when he was making his pottery and talk about what he would do next.. and different designs etc. I have always felt the simplicity of the design is very beautiful,,, and enough in itself.. I'm glad the Peace movement have embraced the sign, and that people have made it their own.. the extraordinary popularity of the design is due to something I believe is quite sacred ... Gea Austen.
