As the weather gets warmer I find myself looking to the landscape for ideas again.
I am currently working on a recycled piece for an upcoming show. I'll be posting my progress as I go along.

I think i have the "upcycle" muse visiting me lately. I think I am spending too much time on Pinterest lol. I have a few small projects I want to finish like my dresser drawer shelf, my text book shelf and mannequin hand curtain hold backs. Here are a few ideas from Pinterest,

I think i will be starting my road to licensing my art with collaged animals. I will start with birds, owls are a big item in fabrics and decor right now. I am not in "fine art" mode here, I save that for gallery and art shows. My goal is to sell what is main stream with a twist of my own. The scan is not the best but you get the idea

Here are a few
crows I put together in October but haven't place them in a painting yet. I may not after all and use them for my licensing submissions.

Making some art papers today. I am in the process of creating a few items for submission for licensing. I was reading a few articles and they recommend putting together a series that can be used on various items such as mugs, notecards etc. Also if I am going to try to sell for this purpose I have to copyright/register my work. I am placing these in a separate portfolio for myself. I will not license any art that has been sold privately because they are originals and generally on canvas. Just think, how would you feel if you bought a painting at a gallery and then see snippets of it on items in retail stores? It is then no longer an original work of art.\

Hope this year brings some new ideas. One of my resolutions is to post at least once a week.
I want to be involved with a few more art organizations so I can be involved in more shows, maybe some workshops etc.

So let's get this new year started!!


Small pieces of art can be fun
