All framed up…

 

Madame X-Ray, framed up and ready for the show!

Madame X-Ray, framed up and ready for the show!

….and some place to go. She’s such a little drama queen. I think putting her in an ornate gold frame was a good idea. It’s the perfect finish and gives her a truly Old (Dead) Masters feel. I took a picture of her in the garden behind my house. She’s looks quite the coquette, hiding behind those purple leaves.

Madame X-Ray will be at The Red Sable beginning on Tuesday, September 29, 2015 along with three others from the Old (Dead) Masters series, plus seven paintings from Greetings from St. Augustine and three Skelly Dancers. They’re going to be there all October, along with matted 5×7″ prints and small notecards. I’ve already sold one piece from the O(D)M (I’ll tell you all about it on a later post), but Madame is available for $270, which includes her splendid gilded frame. Contact me if you’d like to purchase her.

You’ve got some place quiet and secluded for her to be, don’t you? She won’t want to compete with anyone else for space. And even though she’s small, just 10 inches wide by 14 inches tall with the frame, she’s going to command a lot of attention. Drama queen, remember?

My new postcards are here!

postcards

Postcards to give away and mail out.

Now I just have to give them all away!

Seriously. I have to give them all away. Are you on my mailing list? If you’re not, you can be. Send me an email (marie@mariemarfia.com) and I’ll mail you one of these postcards for my show at The Red Sable in October. It’s going to be awesome. I picked them up today at the printer’s and walked around a little bit on St. George Street in St. Augustine, dropping them off here and there. This weekend I will do more of the same. And mail out the rest.

Next week I’m going to hang my paintings all over the store, which means that this weekend I’m going to be busy putting all my art into frames. I’m getting excited about the big Day of the Dead party on October 30. That’s going to be way cool, too. Wonder if there will be a face painter there? It’d be neat to have my face painted like a skull.

Decisions, decisions!

Aren't these pretty?

Here are my 5×7″ prints, double-matted to fit perfectly into 8×10″ frames. Sweet!

I’ve got twelve different double matted prints all wrapped up and ready to go for October’s show at The Red Sable. These will be for sale, $12 each or 3 for $30.

Now I’m on to note cards. I figured to put 2 each of 2 different designs into each package and charge $8 or 3 packages/$20. The question is, which ones should I combine with which?

Here are the choices:

Should I put two dancers together? The mermaid and the lighthouse? Pull my finger and the couple in the Ghost Trolley? Which ones would you like to see paired together? Or should I just make all four cards in the package the same? Let me know in the comments!
