I had plans…lots of them…with coordinating lists (long ones)…a treasure trove of ideas…good, solid plans.  But you know what they say, sometimes the best laid plans fail, and that is just what’s happened.

It is with great sadness, that I must announce the end of  production for my Eat Your Greens and Rockstar Reds series of canvas prints.   My printer can no longer accommodate the 6″x6″ size, and I’ve yet to find a place that can even come close to touching their price.  While I could produce them, and sell them at a higher price, it has always been  my goal to keep my work attainable…so this is it!  If you visit The Produce Stand, you’ll see there are still some to be had, and they are now of a very limited edition.  Only one of each Rockstar Red was ever created, so they are truly one-of-a-kind!

Thanks to all of you who helped support this line of work, collected these little gems, and spread the word!  I’m honored for you to have them…and who knows…maybe I’ll find a way to bring them back to life in the coming months via a different size, medium etc…(sometimes goodbye’s don’t last forever)

On to the bright side…

It’s a new year and there are new plans in the works.  I have my eye on a state of the art printer, that will allow me to print archival quality prints in-house.  The best part…I get to nurture my inner control freak, and totally eliminate the middle-man.  I’ll minimize my overhead and have the opportunity to “print-to-order,”  and you’ll see my work a little more affordable to those of you who love art but can’t quite afford the investment.  “Good Things” (as Martha would say) are on the horizon.

inedible.  The first, discovered  alongside a client’s house.  (her attention to detail, both interior and exterior is exquisite)

Tempting, I know…but it’s only ornamental.

This one you can have, only it too, is inedible.

Christmas that is!  Here’s one the inks from last year…revamped for their 2008 Christmas card.  Don’t forget to commission your custom pen & ink drawing now before the list gets too long and my fingers have arthritis!  Best part?  They’re on sale for $200, but that won’t last long!

Hope you’re all gearing up for a lovely holiday…ps…I’ll have a steal of a deal in The Produce Stand come Black Friday!

Fat-Free Fruitcake that is! Check them out over at The Produce Stand. Oh yeah, did I mention they make their debut at only $15!  And well…it wouldn’t fair to have Rockstar Reds on Sale without ALSO running the $15 sale on the Eat Your Greens series…so go shop around and have some fun!  Hope you like!

Red Thing no. 2

November 10, 2008

So I heard a reporter on the news yesterday asking whether it was premature to start putting up Christmas trees and what nots prior to Turkey Day.  I must say, that any other year I would probably grunt and say yes, that Christmas should wait.  However, when taking into consideration the current economic woes, I think it’s best to start spreading some Christmas Cheer…Not to mention, the end of all those annoying presidential campaign commercials is cause to enough to celebrate.  So  here’s the start of my subliminal Christmas marketing campaign, just to get you in the spirit.

Bazaar recap…

November 9, 2008

The Market Bazaar was great fun.  Thanks to all of you who stopped by my tent,  picked up cards, bought a print or two, or just made conversation.   I had the opportunity to meet some super-fabulous artists, and it was especially great to finally meet Sarah and Kelly in person.  Special thanks to Nick for helping me all day…I could not have done it without you!  Thanks Marvin for letting me sit in the drivers seat of the fire truck…so cool!  Oh yeah, and thanks to Miriam and Jake for hosting an awesome event.  I think what you are doing for the community is really fantastic!  I must say though, that the real icing on the cake for me was selling Granny J’s Jello.  It happens to be one of my favorite prints, and I think it found the perfect home!  So in the spirit of Jello and all things fun.  Here’s your first peek at a complete Red Thing…

P.S. Red Things, a whole lot of them, are on their way!  So save a little bit of that Holiday shopping money for some Fresh Produce!
