Hand Painted Globes

Hand Painted Globes :: The Big Announcement!


Last week I finished up the fifth of five hand painted globes, and here they are! We are all pretty much in love with them, and they look SO good in our studio. It’s really tempting to just keep them, but don’t you worry, everyone is going to have a chance at scooping up one of these beauties! We hope that you’re just as excited about this whole project as we are! We very rarely do any custom artwork, and I don’t think we have EVER offered any one-of-a-kind pieces. So, here is your chance to own something really unique, and BEAUTIFUL!

If you have been reading along here on the blog, or following our Facebook page, or checking in with us on Instagram you are probably aware that we have been building the suspense just a little bit about how we plan to release these globes into the world. Well, here come ALL the details, so pay attention!


Over the course of the next few weeks, all of the globes will be going up for AUCTION!  One globe per week, and the dates are listed above, and in the photos that follow. Starting on November 11th, you can visit our website and click on the auction tab found on the homepage to make your bid on that week’s globe! Make sure to follow 1canoe2 on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram so that you don’t miss out on any of the auction dates, times, and details!

We’ve put together a collection of detailed shots of each globe for you. It’s time to pick out your favorite!


Black background, with creamy white continents, and gold lettering.


This globe is slightly larger. Pink background, black continents, with gold lettering.


Navy blue sky with some white stars, and gold constellations. This one features a quote from Teddy Roosevelt, which says, “Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.”


This one sits on a wire base. Light aqua background, black continents, and gold lettering.


The last one is another slightly larger globe, and features a pattern of flowers and leaves in shades of green, navy, pink, white and gold. It also includes a hand painted quote from William Shakespeare which reads, “One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.”


But wait, there’s one last detail! Before the auctions begin, and to kick off this whole thing, we are giving all of you a chance to WIN a globe! This week we are giving this globe (above) away to one of our Facebook followers. All you have to do is visit our Facebook page and enter for a chance to win!

Hand Painted Globes :: In Progress


Remember all those globes that we have been collecting? Here’s a little in-progress sneak peek! They are slowly being transformed. A little gold paint makes them fancy.


These globes will be for sale, but for this project we are doing something a little bit special. Purchasing details will be coming soon, but for now you can follow the progress through our Facebook page and Instagram. Start picking out your favorite!

Vintage Globes for a New Project!


Over the past couple of weeks my work studio has slowly been filling up with globes. All vintage, some bigger, some smaller. Some with round bases, one that is square, and one mounted on a wire stand. They look really beautiful all together, and they are the basis for a new project! I’ll fill you in on the plans I have for these globes as the project unfolds, so come back soon to see how things are progressing!
