Pieces Sold at the Show

Our Garden Party Art Show was a great success!  I fear I talked people's heads off, but they were all kind enough to listen.

I sold three pieces at the show.  If I'd thought ahead I would have taken better pics of them.  ;-j

Once In a Blue Moon, woodcut

Paleo Dreams, monoprint

Paleo-Ho-Ho, woodcut

I could get used to this idea of selling my art.  ;-]  I guess I'd better start taking better pictures of my art.

Matting & Framing

Working on matting and framing new works and older works I haven't shown before.  Came across an interesting mat size at Aaron Bros. called Digital that works just great with some of my odd-ball sized smaller prints.  (Now if I'd learn to cut my own mats I wouldn't have this problem.)  ;- j

Broke my brain tho.  I can only look at mats and frames for so long before I can't think anymore.  I'll go back tomorrow and see what else I can find.  Nice sales right now.

Screening for the Display Panels

Getting ready for our Garden Party Art Show on the 25th.

Today I played with some black nylon netting.  The pvc pipe/fencing display panels we made last year are a little too see-thru and I'm trying to make them less so.

Trouble is, it can't get opaque.  I'm trying for something like window screening.

It isn't perfect, but it is a bit shaded.  I think it'll help, especially if I make a point of matching frames on both sides so you don't see the back of any frames.

Live and learn.  Looking forward to this second art show.
