And after all this, if you notice a glaring bug, don’t hesitate to contact me, or if, you just want to say something that won’t cause me angst about this site… those words, phrases and sentences are most, welcome to.
I get a warm fuzzy feeling when customer’s send me photographs of art that they purchased from me, matted and framed and hung on their walls.
So the deck located on the side of my house is about to fall off. It is by no means secure. The backyard deck, thankfully can happily live through another summer before needing to be replaced, although it is in need of repair too.
I got to thinking about how I can earn the money I need to replace this side deck and staircase that my tenants use to enter and exit the house and thought about running a sale on matted prints. I tend to run two sales per year; once during Springtime and later in early Fall, and then again sometimes I don’t.
This is how I make my living, and at the moment, although my art sales are steady, I do not have any room to maneuver after having recently paid my property taxes in full. And what do people do when they need more money… well they put in overtime to earn the money that they need and for me, that means running a sale.
The matted art prints measure 8×10 inches and will fit directly into a standard sized frame which can be purchased at your local department store. Each archival print is matted and backed with acid free materials.
These matted prints make wonderful wedding, birthday or shower gifts. And they do look striking hanging in your bathroom, on your kids bedroom wall or on a living room shelf or mantle.
This Studio Special will run from Tuesday, June 1 to Tuesday, June 8, 2010 in my Etsy Art Shop. The matted prints are regularly priced at $25 each and are on special for $18. Thank you!
And do leave a comment on this blog post and I’ll enter you in a draw for two of the matted prints. I’ll draw the winner on June 9, 2010.
Series Title – A Little Something (series of three paintings)
Medium – Kroma Acrylic, Ceramcoat Varnish and Faber Castel Pitt Artist pen on Cypress Archival card stock
Size of each painting – 8.5 x 11 inches / 21.5cm by 28cm)
Each miniature original was drawn with india ink, pilot pens and opaque white ink on various acid free card stock and are available in the Original Art/Aceo Section of the shop.
Keep an eye out for much larger 10 to 19 inch prints in the shop. They ARE coming soon! Because my miniatures are very detailed in nature I can scan them at obscenely high resolutions and am able to print them out at much larger sizes all the while retaining that detail. And so many of you have been requesting larger sizes… hang tight. They are on their way very soon. Likely in May xo
This is George.
He was created with ink on flecked grey and taupe Ingris paper. The original drawing measures 5×7 inches / 17,7cm by 12,6cm.
He’s the pretty fish who swims the sea’s with Milton, spotted Eddie, Francis, Annabelle and Emily.
And he’s got a great tail!
George is available in three sizes:
• Mini George ACEO Limited Edition (2.5 x 3.5 inch / 6,4cm by 8,9cm)
• Small George as a 5 x 7 inch print (17,7cm by 12,6cm)
• Big George as a 8.5 x 11 inch print (27,9cm by 21,6cm)
Framing and Matting is also available in the shop
Hope you like him!
