Rituals Series Continued

Ritual 23 – Acrylic abstract painting on cradled panel
8 x 8 x 2″

This painting is available at Key West Art Bar. I’m thinking that Key West would be a great place to be right now — it’s cold here in Tampa!

Here are two monotypes that I just sold on Etsy. I’m so happy and grateful that people are still finding a way to surround themselves with art, even in these tough economic times. Maybe it’s because of these down times that we need art even more.

These are 4 x 4″ in 14 x 11-inch paper.

    I found you on JuJu’s blog. I like your abstracts very much. I’m on wordpress also. I will bookmark your blog so I can find you again.

    Martha: I envy you in a good way. . . you’re selling stuff. I wonder what I can do to make my work sell? Right now I feel like just quitting. . . it’s one of those days. . .

    Martha — I truly love your 4″x4″ abstracts — there’s something about the larger matting that carries the eye — bang! — right to the artwork itself. I like small — it invites closer scrutiny, making us pause in this fast-paced life. Good luck with them!

    Mary, I haven’t had a lot of activity on Etsy lately. So naturally I am thrilled when I sell something. One really has to aggressively promote it not only on the site but offsite, everywhere possible . . . blogging, Tweeting, Facebook, etc. (At the same time not sounding like we’re always promoting!) Promoting on Etsy includes hanging out on the forums and creating treasuries. It really helps.

    I need to write a post about all this. Thanks, Mary!

    Kelly, thanks! I come from a printmaking background, so have always loved a big generous piece of paper with a small image. These were done on 100# paper, but my favorite paper is Arches cover. That really has “oomph.” Even a painting done on paper or a collage looks great with lots of border.

I love getting your comments, so please don't be shy! Your feedback is valued.
