I am finally at the point where I am really ready to start selling my art to the public. I opened my Etsy shop at the beginning of the year to I could sell some of the 1600 original pieces I've created over the last 4 years and now I am ready to start selling prints of the works you like the best. They too will go into my Etsy shop but will also be available at my workshops, gallery events, art shows, etc.I will also consider wholesale/consignment options.
These images were selected from your input on Flickr, Facebook, and here on my blog. They were literally just dropped off with the photographer and I should see the 1st round of proofs early next week. The samples of his work that I saw were fairly meticulous and I am looking forward to the results. My intent is for each of these to be available in a limited production capacity.
The first selected image (shown at top) is Learning a new Language. I'm not sure I've ever received such a strong reaction to a single piece I've created as much as this one, so your wish is my command. Acrylic and gel pen on canvas panel - original not currently for sale.
The second image you chose was Breathe.(AKA "Big Bright Breath") Aside from the fact that the colors on this piece just LEAP from the page, it is also supercharged with positive rhythmic energy as it sat on display during an intense hand drumming workshop. The original of this piece will be available for sale once it has been accurately reproduced.
Enso Mandala... One of my first acrylic paintings- there is something very special about this piece. Created on Multimedia Artboard.Original NFS (This one is for you Bill!)
"Lealtà Feroce" (Fierce Loyalty) is a dark piece created at a time of great angst. Thank you for seeing the possibility in this piece. Acrylic on handmade Punjab watercolor paper.Will entertain offers to sell the original.
Monument... The colors on this piece just rock! Acrylic on handmade Punjab watercolor paper. Will entertain offers to sell the original.
Lastly, I present Release. A batik style piece created with fountain pen inks on watercolor paper.Original NFS.
