Print On Demand Now Available

Hi folks, I just signed up with Artflakes.com to provide you with quality fine art prints, posters, greeting cards, and more- all featuring prints of my original work.

You can see my profile page on Artflakes here.

They are one of the few art print services that will identify purchasers to me, the person generating the content, which is valuable to me, a woman running a small art business who would like to build a customer base from positive community relations- not just as a nameless content producer online.

And right now, I am motivated to grow that business- so if you would and could, please take a look, try the site out, make a purchase or two, and help me get some real world feedback on the service! Also don’t forget to “like” work as I put up images you might enjoy, share with others, and leave me some (hopefully constructive) comments on my Artflakes profile! You will definitely receive my undying appreciation. For extra devoted fans, I might even throw in a freebie 🙂

Any experience with using Print On Demand services that you’ve found helpful? Feel free to comment on this post and share your experiences, good bad or otherwise.

 

 

 


Repost: Lost in the Gallery-Industrial Complex

The issues this author talks about in his article are issues that I struggle with, as a formally trained artist and now, the inheritor of my father’s estate full of his abstract paintings, every day. Holland Cotter talks about current art trends, big money, and values. Read the full article here.

I’m in the process of updating some of the page info on here. Be sure and check out the new section on “photography.”


Dreams show Oct. 3rd @ Launchpad Gallery

 

The above piece is not new, but it’s received a new context by my decision to enter it into the Dreams show, this coming month at Launchpad Gallery.

I felt it matched the show theme as the portrait depicts a young man I had originally dreamed about, but had not met, in a location I had never been to (England). Later that year, I did go to that place and I met him. The interaction that followed resulted in this piece. (And yes, he really did have that amazing hair!)

If you get a chance to come out to the opening, please do as the piece is in a spiffy new frame and looks awesome in person. The Web cannot do it justice.

“Dreams” opening night, First Friday, October 3, 6:00pm-???
