Original pastel art at The Starving Artist in November includes “Dance at Bougival” for $670, and “Orbs” for $300. I’m working on designing prints and cards based on “Dance at Bougival”, and hope to offer them soon. Meantime, since the holidays are for lovers, I am including “Shall We Dance”, “Happily Ever After,” and “Pull My Finger” in 11×14″ size and as 5×7″ cards.

The 11×14″ prints are $34.95 and the 5×7″ cards are $4.95 each or 3 for $12.95 or 6 for $18.95.

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!

New mascot picture

It’s a nice problem to have, right? They’re running out of my 5×7″ skelly cards at the Starving Artist. I was going to just put a bunch in the mail to them for re-stocking but realized the web address on the back is my old blog address and I’m posting on a new one right here. So then, since I had to make a change anyway, I thought I’d slap a big fat picture of me on the back, too.

This is the one I picked:

Wave hello to everyone, little skelly mascot!

And here are the outtakes:

Skeleton facing the wrong way

Now he looks like he’s being held captive by a mad woman.

DSCN0178

Whoops, little too excited with the waving there.

DSCN0179

Just no.

DSCN0180

Little too much distance between me and my beloved and the easel and I look like I’m giving him a hand massage.

It’s kind of hilarious hitting the timer and then grabbing a slippery skeleton and trying to make it and myself look friendly. But I think I got it done. What do you think? Different photo? Maybe I should just make it a picture of the skeleton with pastels in its hands… Or passed out next to a bottle. Oh, the possibilities are endless!
