My second day of blogging. I changed the name of my blog to what I hope is my final one. All my art is abstract, but it is not all done with paint and a brush. I like ink and embossing powder. I love to work with fabric and dye. So therefore, I am an abstract mixed media artist. I guess my art could be more like abstract mixed up art. Some work is straight painting and other is a combo and other is just fabric, etc. etc. As I said…kind of mixed up art, but it is all abstract. At least my idea of abstract.
I did not go to school for art, so my art is of my own style. I know I am suppose to pick a medium and not bounce all over the place, but it is hard when you like so many different things to work with. I suppose that is why they came up with a Mixed Media artist. That is someone who can work with everything. So as I write this blog I guess I am coming up with my style. I am discovering my artistic style.
Okay…off to another topic. I looked into having some giclee prints made after reading a blog by Lynne Taetzsch. This will be my first attempt at having prints made of my work. I did a Google search and found a site that looks affordable to me for my first time. I have to send them my art though. Of course, since I have yet to sell my art sending it off will only be a big deal to me. It is called Gallery Street. Once I decide which art piece to send them, I will write about it here on my blog. I will also post the painting to my blog. My blog is pretty much going to be my website. I will be showing my work here and selling my work here as well. Maybe one day I will try to set up a website, but for now, my blog site will be my website.
My blog is probably going to just be a weekday type blog. I write mainly from work. Yes, I have a very flexible job where I can do this type thing from work. My weekends are usually spent in more creative art type pursuits.
One final topic. I am lucky enough to have an art room and it is almost finished. Well, the room itself is finished; the moving into it is still a work in progress. I will be getting my drafting table and sewing table moved in this weekend. Then there is one more table and a few more bins to put under the tables and the room should be complete. Pictures on the walls will be next. Organization is probably going to take a while, but that will be coming too. I just want to be able to get in there and create. So…wish me luck.
