These images kind of morphed from their original intent into something entirely different! I love when that happens! They began as small magazine clippings that I cut, all to be glued into art journals and used as inspiration for future art compositions. Mostly looking for interesting shapes & lines I also ended up with a lovely variety of colors. As I continued clipping them and piling them on the table I could see how awesome they would look if photographed together. Out came the camera!
I was sure that I’d upload them and then throw them into Photoshop to create some kind amazing digital artwork but the more I looked at them the more I enjoyed them just as they are! So now I’ve got even more motivation to continue with the art journals. Taking photos of the groups of images as well as inspiration from each individual one, a rather accidental form of multitasking. 🙂
What motivates and inspires you?
Woot!! Cool news from the weekend, I have two sets of digital art traveling to their new home in England today. These pieces were part of the new art display at ArtSplash Gallery in Carmel, Indiana for the month of June, even if they didn’t get to stay there long. 🙂 Printed on aluminum, each piece was 10″x 20″ and covered an area of 32″ x 20″ when hung together.
I loved the bright colors and the way they seemed to pop off of the aluminum! I have had several pieces printed on aluminum, it is beautiful, lightweight and maintenance is a breeze. I hope the new owners will be as excited about them as I am! Although I am a bit jealous that my art is traveling and I am not. 🙂
Last Friday I posted about the artwork I have hanging in the Hendricks County 4-H Conference Center from now until mid-May. If you live in Indiana and have a chance to stop & view these in person that would be fantastic! As I mentioned in my last post I will also be posting images from that display on the blog so that my non-local blog readers have a chance to get some great deals on art too! Here is a selection of images for today:
All these images are photo/digital art, printed on canvas & gallery wrapped. They have traveled to a few shows and may have some wear on the corners or edges but they still look fantastic hanging on the wall. To take advantage of these great deals before they are gone be sure to e-mail me (my contact info is listed in the “Buy My Art” section at the top/right of the page!).
Today I will be traveling to the Hendricks County 4-H Conference Center to hang a display of my artwork in the hallways! Although I will have some newer artwork on display in the glass cases (mandalas & mini art pieces) I am using this opportunity to pull out some of my old favorites and show them, with specially reduced prices.
The display will be up from now until mid-May, giving everyone an opportunity to visit and get some great deals! Since many of my blog readers are not located in Indiana I will be featuring these art pieces on my blog once or twice a week and offering free shipping to the non-local followers. How’s that for a deal?
There is a mixture of digital art, mixed media, printmaking and paintings as well – something for everyone! I’m sharing a sneak peek for your Friday, be on the lookout for more in the coming weeks and be sure to contact me to arrange your purchase when you discover your favorites.
Once they’re gone, they are gone – don’t miss out!
