another attempt at updating my site has me putting all my books for sale on my store page (love for sale)…so now you have all the information you need to become my number one fan!
here are more inkings i have done with an earth day exhibit in mind.
these are 9X12 and for sale for $60
the featured one is like twice that size? (i forgot to measure) and i’m asking $100 for it.
let me know if you are interested.
in between a sister have a psychotic break on my couch
waiting for the proof of my book to show up
(both excited & terrified)
& impulsively buying a house
that is at least as damaged as me…
i am working on art for an earth day exhibit
i have too many pieces already,
but it is so calming to thumb through my journals
and creating new pieces from old ones.
by the way
any piece you see here is totally for sale…
let’s say $60 for the 9X12 & $75 for the 12X16 (the story & goddess of creation)
update: the song, goddess of creation, & the story have all been spoken for
i was doodling during a board meeting
as i have trouble sitting still
& can actually focus better if my hand
my school notebooks are full of doodles
& i am sure
this is how i excelled as i did
with such a tendancy
to let my mind
when i went to finish the doodle that started with
i was pretty impressed
i have been working on turning a journal page into a finished work as requested.
after two tries, i am not completely happy (but there are many a man who will tell you that is not an uncommon state for me) 😉 & am trying to determine if i should try a third time….
just for shits & giggles, i set up a red bubble shop.
totally let me know if you want a certain image added to my shop.
cut me down
when i realize
i am worth
(far far less)
than i thought
it is weird
i valued myself
(far far more)
than the rest of the world
here i thought
things couldn’t get
this was my pull me down to earth (wasn’t i already there, buried in fact?) thought when i had to re-price my art to a lower asking price at the physical site as well as on my etsy site and at my art exhibit. i thought i was under-pricing my art. turns out i am worth even less than i originally thought. it’s a sobering thought…. but supply & demand & all that….
so i am not making any new pieces to sell. instead i am focusing on other projects, including doing nanowrimo for the first time ever.
so maybe it was the push i needed?
(lemons & lemonade & all that)
i haven’t been journaling or doing much of anything
other than binge-watching preacher
& staring at walls
i know this will pass
but it is so thick
& hard to see through
when i am in the midst of it
i tried to do a spell
to break free of the psychic attacks & negative energy
from dear old dusty
as well as setting a course for a magical life
i chose this guy as my companion
i keep drawing him
& hoping the spell takes hold
i hope to finish a commissioned piece today
& to work on more art to put over
at my etsy store
(i did open an etsy store!)
& i did finish a piece for one of my patrons
(become a patron & get original art!)
but there are two more episodes of preacher
& though the sun has finally come out
i am still wallowing in a dark place
i have an upcoming art show!
date is to be announced…but i will be showing inkings from my “the invisible exhibitionist” series of self-portraits for the grand re-opening of the commons in viroqua, wi.
so i am working on doing more finished versions of the art journal self-portraits i did for three years (almost 500 pages of self-portraits.)
i will keep y’all updated.
also, here is a photo of my art being sold in the local art mart!!
so! the little consignment art mart opened up again & since i have been trying to talk myself in to selling my art there for like six months now…i decided i should call them up and set up a time to bring my art in.
as soon as i thought it, the talking heads “love for sale” began playing on my mix.
you may or may not have noticed that i borrowed that title to use for the page of art for sale on this very site….
so i got out my phone & stared at it for a couple of hours…but eventually made the call…& did drop off art there on saturday.
so i am officially “out there” with my art.
at least in a small town in the driftless region of wisconsin….
anyhoo! this page was inspired by that struggle.
