Did I ever tell you that most art pieces go through an "ugly stage." Yeah, seriously, it's like the gawky teenage stage. Doesn't worry me, it'll pass. ;-)
"Leading Them Home"
colored pencil and graphite on warm white Stonehenge paper
So I've been pondering making a few minor changes to my website, little cosmetic things, a few tweaks here and there. Well, I've actually now decided to completely redo it. Big changes on the horizon! It's going to take me a long time to do it, but I want to get it done ASAP for some publicity-related reasons. Stay tuned.
Ah, and I think I'll have a "holiday sale" as well, since there is a lot of older work that I just want to get the heck out of here. That kind of makes me wish I had an art show coming up soon, but I don't.
You will be selling prints of this piece, won't you? or at least note cards? -BMc
I'm not sure. Since it is custom made for one person's Christmas cards, it would be some time down the road before I would make cards for anyone else. And by that point, who knows. Definitely not prints.
Is that a specific barn in the background, or a generic one? And how nice to have Christmas cards that show daffodils and the springtime to come instead of the sterile whiteness of winter.
Generic. He gives me a list of breeds he's interested in, a general idea of what sort of image (in this case it was hen and chicks, springtime, very green), and a Bible verse that he will have printed in the card. And then I roll these ideas around and come up with something that fits. "New Arrivals" and "Winter Gold" were done for this same person in the same way. To anyone else though, without reading the accompanying text in the card, it's just a chicken drawing.
I think cards of this type would sell for the springtime chicken loving crowd, but I have been wrong in the past! -BMc.
