The trouble started when gluing the torn vintage letter to the art board, the beautiful handwriting almost completely disappeared. This pursued when I spilled my burnt umber acrylic ink all over my art table and the piece. I had to scrub the piece to get most of the ink off, which was rather unnerving considering both art board and vintage paper are very fragile. All was well as soon as I printed her photo. That girl, the one with the deviant smile.
I'm treating the last show of the season as if it was the first. This year has been a disaster and this show is the last chance to turn it around. I don't expect to recoup the season's losses, I only hope to have a great show.
LAKEVILLE Here I come!
New Art Cards
In preparation for the new season earlier this year I needed to make new title cards for my artwork. I decided to save time by printing only the title and price of each piece on a plain card. Well this did not go over very well with people who were used to having the little bit insight into what inspired each piece printed on each card.
A dilemma I had with the original cards was that the purchasing customer would always want to keep the card with the piece, although they were never too happy about the price being printed on the card.
I solved this by creating stamped price circles that are punched to hang on the same hook that hangs the title card, or as I like to call them "art cards" One of the new art cards is pictured above.
