Studio Special on Matted Art and a Giveaway for You

Illustration fish art by artist Jessica Doyle

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.

Happy Tuesday!

  1. I’m sure you’ll get the funds you need to replace your deck. :)

    Positive Thinking!

    Thank you for the double entries into the drawing! :)

  2. Awww, too bad about the deck, but with such fabulous artwork, I’m sure you’ll rake in the funds in no time. Best of luck with the sale!

  3. Thanks for doing the giveaway – I love your work and enjoy following your blog.

  4. Jessica!
    How extraordinarily kind of you to offer your prints. I’m certain you’ll sell more than enough to cover the deck replacement and then some.
    What you put out into this world comes back tenfold and since you’re being so generous so too will it be returned to you. Good luck!

  5. I am not sure that i can understand properly what you are facing… but I need what a lack of money means. I am jobless for one year now. Your prints are lovely, thanks for this giveaway! Lubica

  6. I love the pussy willows… I love the fish… I love the sunflowers… I love , love, love it all. Good Luck on getting your deck replaced. Off now to order… but which one? Tough, tough, tough decision1111

  7. I sure wish could make my living doing something I love. You can tell by your pieces that a lot of love and tenderness go into each one. Your drawings look so complicated, yet I get so drawn into them. They are just beautiful. I just purchased George the Fish, but would love to have the whole fish collection. Hopefully, I’ll get them at some point.

  8. I’ve just found your website, and I fell instantly in love with your fish. I must confess, I have a fish affinity; you could call me an afishionado. Maybe it has to do with me being a pisces and loving water and living by the sea and, I guess, swimming against the stream sometimes too. I will swim by your Etsy store and take a look. All the best with your deck repair project!

  9. What a cute little deck! I’m excited about your sale. Love your stuff and think I need a couple for my studio! Hope it goes well for you and you replace that cute little deck with a cuter one!

  10. I’m going to go check out your etsy shop right now! I love the fish prints and my fiance’s bday is coming up soon – great gift idea.

  11. As usual, a fantastic blog post that makes me want to get neck-deep in my Etsy work! Good luck with the deck and thanks for that boost of inspiration!


  12. If I lived in your part of the world I’d give you a great price on your new entry stairs/deck, could even take some art in kind. Sadly, the commute from the west coast makes it prohibitive!

  13. Hi!!! I love your art work and I thiank I am going to head over to your shop to see if I can find something that will look awesome in my office!! Thank you! Challene

  14. I would send my dad over, he makes amazing decks but we live in NY :( Just be careful with it!

    Your work is wonderful! I’d love to win it. Thank you for the chance!

  15. I discovered your work about two months ago and I love it.
    I hope you get your deck replaced, and thanks for the giveaway.

  16. Hey artist! If I wasn’t in the same boat I certainly would be getting myself one of your creations. I even went w/o heat this past winter..sucked! Good news is I won a sponsorship to buy a tent, so going to do some art shows and fingers crossed for a grant I’m under review for.

  17. ! I had you buried in my many many bookmarks – I’m so glad I went through them this morning! I need to put this blog on my rotation, I love your art, and I see gardening? I’m a first timer – kind of overwhelmed. It’ll be nice to see what you’re doing.

  18. Hooray for artists supporting themselves by making and selling art!! Thanks for the great offer, and good luck with the deck!

    I always enjoy checking in on what you’re up to!
