I haven't been able to post any of my work for so long... before the gallery show on the 20th (of Feb:) I spent every spare second getting the journals and canvas finished. After the show I spent over a week recovering but over the weekend we finally had some sun and I was able to set up outside and get some photos.
My favorite journal was purchased before I could have it photographed, but it is going to a wonderful home. I've decided to do a series - wasn't quite done with that thought:)
Hope is a departure from my usual; I most always use photographs I've taken, or old copyright-free images. If you recognize 'her' let me know so I can give credit - I can't recall where I found the lovely girl.
I'll take them to New Editions next, the gallery that sold 8 journals in November, to see if the owner will take more - wish me luck. I want to start an etsy store, now there is artfire and another one I hadn't seen before... and I'm not sure about whether they work or not. Being a novice, I'll take all the advice I can get!!
These photos distort the sense of size... the journal below is small - 5" x 5" - but my second favorite, at least I think!
The one below used to be a child's ABC board book, and it's 8-1/2 inches square; I had to paint a background for that magnificent flower, one of the many surprised in my bobbles and bling purchases
I have more and will post them as I finish the photo work... thanks for looking!
