It's always interesting, challenging, and rewarding to create and set up a new offering.
Whether it's a new design or art service, a new product, or even working in the studio putting together the physical setup for a new art piece or an exhibit--there is so much to think about and figure out. Well, that's how it is with me, anyway.
Each artist or designer definitely has a unique process and that's just one of the things I really enjoy about communicating with others in any creative field, sharing ideas and inspirations. Even in my own work, actually, I have a wide range of approaches, from a meticulous and detailed planning (granted, it's based on 'inspiration,' not on too much analysis or such) to a dive-right-in direct material method.
But having a few different 'outlets' is exciting. Whether it's a creating new physical or digital work in my studio, contributing to a digital presence at a gallery, or a connection with--and process for--having my own designs made into clothing and home furnishings items, there are always interesting and challenging projects, and decisions to be made. As a multi-faceted artist, I enjoy the experience and the path of being inspired to create many diverse items.
But now, I want to tell you about the new Museum-Quality Archival Prints!
I am so fortunate to be connected with fine art professionals who produce images of my work on beautiful archival paper, canvas (stretched on wood bars, and wired for hanging), and metal (in a couple of different versions and ready-to-hang).
The images on my Online Open Studio page are just a few of what is available! in fact, many of the pieces you see throughout this website could be made in these formats.
What's "Original," and what is a "reproduction?"
-runBecause of the way I work, most of the archival-printed images I offer for you to purchase are actually Originals, as limited editions. This is because the only way they will exist, in a physical form, is to be printed as I am describing. They are NOT "Reproductions of paintings" unless specifically noted as such. This is the same also for my Digital Paintings. The only way they can have any physical presence is to be printed, which is why I only use the most high quality methods from fine art printers who specialize in museum quality fine art printing with pigmented inks.
It's important to me that you know that I will never do large-run, "reproduction" editions. My maximum number for prints in one of my limited edition prints is five to 20. So you can be confident that there will never be more than 20 made. Find out more here.
What and When?
I'm in the process of posting a lot of new work for sale here. But I will be featuring different pieces in my occasional emails, also. So please use the link on any of the pages of my web site to sign up for the emails. And please share that info also.
In the email you will be notified of special offers for fine art purchasing--whether one of the archival prints, or actual original paintings, monotype prints, or drawings. So, don't miss the updates, and don't be shy!
