I am having a print sale! I am changing the format of my prints just a bit and am having a sale on old stock prints. My 11″x14″ alphabet prints are included in this sale! I am selling 2 for $50 or 3 for $60 or if you are interested in the whole set that can be purchased for $520. This is a huge discount-so if you have been thinking about making a statement with art now is the time! The sale last through the end of March. Each print is 100% cotton paper and is signed and dated.
I posted this “blurb” on my facebook page this morning not to be a declaration of insecurity but as an encouragement to all who create.
With out a whole back story a friend of mine recently said the phrase “the courage to create” and it started me thinking about my creation process. Sometimes(or many times) I don’t feel very courageous in my creating. Instead I feel a bit anxious with every new piece I start. I am one of those fear of failure type people, so with every piece I am afraid that it won’t be good enough, won’t measure up to people’s expectations, won’t be what I had hoped. And that is just with pieces I think up. That anxiety and fear grows exponentially with commission pieces. But as many have said courage is not the absence of fear, it’s being afraid and “saddling up anyway.” I have never really thought of my art career as a job in which I confront my fears daily-especially when I look at some of the brave men and women around me. But every day I go into the studio and try to create something out of nothing I am facing one of my biggest fears-failure. So today I am going to create, not fearlessly but with courage.
Here is a new piece I have been working on. Today was the perfect rainy, cold day to stay inside and paint a warmer outside. It is 18″x24″ done with watercolor and acrylic over vintage letters and envelops from the 1950′s. It’s not a great picture-I will have a better in a few days but it’s something:)
I am planning on changing up my print format a bit so I am having a sale on old stock prints. These are all high quality 11″x14″ prints with white boarders (so the image is smaller) printed on 100% cotton paper with archival inks. They fit standard frames and matting. They are all signed and dated. I usually sell them for $30.00 each but through the month of March I will sell them for 2 for $50.00 or 3 for $60. If you would like to purchase more just contact me for pricing.
These are the prints that are on sale
