In my studio, I'm a bit obsessed with trees right now. Wintery trees, shimmering trees, lichen covered trees. They are the beginning of this 30 in 30 adventure, and who knows where they will lead? I will follow the muse this month, bring you along on the journey and see what malarkey we can get into along the way. :)
Last January's 30 in 30 challenge was also my first ever "Adopt a Painting" online event. And there are a whole bunch of paintings celebrating their first year in a new home as a result. Yay! It was a great way to get affordable art in the hands of folks who wanted to begin collecting original pieces.
But let's try something even more adventurous this year - a "Pay What You Can" event! (Thank you to Jodi Ohl for this incredible idea!) Here's how it works: each day, in addition to a new 30 in 30 piece, I will feature one original work at the end of my blog post. If you're interested in the piece, email me what you'd like to pay to own it (shipping will be added to that price, so keep that in mind). Before the next day's blog post, I will email the winner, who will be selected at random. It isn't about who offers the most, it's about getting art into your hands to start your new year off with a creative BOOST! (Can you tell I am super excited about this?)
So let's meet today's "Pay What You Can" featured piece:
"Native Girl" - mixed media on canvas paper, 9 x 12. This will be shipped flat. Anticipated shipping cost is around $10. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to put your name in the hat!
