Shop Vida Artist, Tina Monod Licenses Her Art

Boldly Beautiful
Today I would like to talk about a new project, one that I have been growing for the past few months – my licensed art at Shop Vida! When someone or something inspires me, I translate that love into paint. Many layers of paint!! Art for me is a visual language. The pigments blend and the paint speaks. It becomes something to love… or what I call a tangible connection, a story made to last for all of time in various unique forms.

Vibrant in Nature
My purpose as an artist has always been to give life shape. Why, to make all things new, of course! Every painting I create tells a story with carefully cultivated details. Inspiration comes to me outside of the studio and often from my travels. My work is purposeful in that every journey weaves a narrative. When a painting is finished and is ready to hang in its new home, it communicates clearly to each viewer. Visual stories begin and form bridges, connecting a world of art collectors and appreciators to my art.

A Gift of Art
I am a Designer, a maker, an entrepreneur – forever inspired by our storytelling culture. So much inspires my work past and present. You could say that I’m an energy seeker always inspiring others and living my dreams. My mother used to ask me “where do you get your ideas from?” My answer was “which one, I have so many ideas on the go, every day.” One process simply conditions another in the business of creativity. When I see that something is empty, I fill it. Where there is a tiny spark – I shine a light. When there is darkness, I light a fire. Art is a special love and a wonderful adventure.

Opening Hearts + Minds
Art is so good for the soul. It can be entirely symbolic, capturing the energy of a time or place that was special in your life. Perhaps it was a person, a thing, or an event. It is the synchronicity of one or more of these things that make a collector fall in love with a painting. Art as a form of story is never finished for the artist. Everyone sees something different and adds their story to the layers. Building art and culture in our daily lives, homes and work environments can have such an incredible impact.

Contributing & Collaborating
The moment of purchasing an original work of art or a signed copy is full of excitement. The world of prints has a special purpose and is a doorway into the art world, with endless design preferences for decor and presentation. We cannot always own an original for various reasons. Sometimes what we want gets purchased by another collector or it was just not the right time in life to make the commitment of a purchase. Prints and reproductions offer many creative options for those who enjoy interior design, decorating trends and fashion.

Artist Inspired Collections
Designing with Vida has taken my art to new levels. Seeing my art 3 dimensionally as men and women’s apparel is so wonderful. I find that the possibilities are endless. It is refreshing to see how a collection can go past the life cycle of the studio and exhibiting and still keep on giving. I enjoy being in the flow of creating and I also love the way that my art has taken on new life with products from home decor to wearable art!

An Exchange of Energy
Giving the gift of education and creating lasting change is important to me. For every product made, Vida offers literacy and education programs in their factories across the globe. Everything that is purchased online is custom ordered with zero waste. When you purchase my designs, you are also contributing to global impact. With my designs available for purchase online at ShopVida.com – I do not have to stock inventory. Billing, shipping, customer service and payment is all taken care of by Vida.

Design Collections by Tina Monod

I began licensing my collections with 3 paintings that for me represented comfort and a special sense of home. These were fruit trees laden with apples or plums. They make me smile and when I saw the results with the products I knew that I had to go further and see how the collections could grow. Paintings of sunflowers and vineyards were my next exploration. People really love both. A few mountain paintings from the Canadian Rockies were also added. Here are all the Collections to date.

Vineyards and Wineries

vineyards and wineries series - pinot noir, pinot gris and on the vine by tina monod - acrylic on gallery canvas 16x20x1.5

Colours you can taste

Vineyards are amazing places. They stand the test of time, forever defying the elements. They weather the seasons and achieve balance. Eventually, we pour them into a glass and they fill the senses. Some experiences in life are so rich and fantastic that we wish they could all be bottled. A winery cultivates and captivates just this and more.

Visiting vineyards and wineries is near and dear to me. I grew up in a valley where the apple orchards we loved were all replaced. Grape vines did quite well in their place and our communities began a new tourism with wineries. It sounds easy, but a lot of hard work went into these new businesses. I admire them all for their fierce and bold tenacity. Not every year is exactly as you would like it in the growing cycle. There are risks and I am fascinated by the process.

Wine trails often take me to places where the view is a painting of its own. This summer I was invited to take part in a premier event with the Bay of Quinte Art and Wine Festival. To my delight, I was juried in and welcomed with true county spirit. I was happy to share my art with this new audience. Adding to this opportunity, I was asked if I would like to paint on site. I prepared 3 paintings of vineyards and wineries for this. There was just enough time to paint 1 of them at the event. The people were very fun to meet and I enjoyed answering everyone’s questions, giving them as much information as possible.

Here are the 3 paintings and I hope that there will be more as time goes by.

Vineyards and Wineries

Vineyards and Wineries is a collection of colourful county and country landscapes painted with acrylics on gallery canvas. Paintings are 16×20″ with a depth of 1.5″ and a painted edge, ready for hanging. These paintings explore a variety of favourite vineyards across Canada. Favourite picks! Brushes explore the beauty of grapevines from the provinces of British Columbia and Ontario in this series. What began with travelling to wine festivals has become an inspiration. This is evident with renderings of Prince Edward County, West Kelowna and Osoyoos – all brilliant in hue. This series by Canadian artist and designer Tina Monod is about the time honoured tradition of growing grapes, harvests and winemaking all in this beautiful country of Canada.

Pinot Noir

Hillier, Ontario – Prince Edward County

Walking through the vineyards and surrounding countryside of Wellington is simply amazing! The air is so fresh and a light rain falling becomes a magical mist throughout the fields. Pinot noir grape vines are reaching upwards with the promise of a new season.

Who knows where the wine trail will lead me on my search for the perfect pinot noir. It has lead me here with all the colours and nuances of summer. I am ready to paint the essence of wine, beginning with the bright green vines. The colour relationships of soil and greenery have accents of wine colours. I see a nice freshness, full of possibilities. This painting will travel to Bay of Quinte Art and Wine Festival in Belleville to share my painting process as an artist.

Back in the studio my brushes dip into the entrepreneurial culture of growing grapes and producing wine. Paints are arranged for blending and I am ready to recreate the rows of vines. Layers of earth and sky grow and connect the viewer to a love of the land. All is intricately woven like a tapestry. The anticipation of cultivating something wonderful inspires.

Thank you Hubbs Creek Vineyards!
