the Chihuly glass at the Bellagio takes my breath away!
Okay- you guys need to click on "vis voice" and then click on "my website" at the top. I don't know the lady that has created this site, but I stumbled upon it a few months ago and it is my favorite daily site to check... it's actually what has inspired me to show more than just my art that is for sale on my blog. I know we all joke around here and have a lot of fun... but her site seriously starts my day off right... reminding me to appreciate the world we live in.
and i love the photographs that she sells if any of you are ever having a hard time deciding what to get me for christmas. :)
woah, woah, woah. slow down, windy. i know you like her website and all, but you've gotten a little too serious talking about inspiration and appreciation. you made a commitment when you decided to change your blog to be a non-serious, glen-friendly environment. i just don't think he would feel comfortable here today. and a comment board without glen is like, well... like strauch's blog. and we all know strauch's blog is dead. lighten it up.
hey! let glen speak for himself! he can make anything light... i'm just trying to challenge him.
I wanted to tell you on your most recent blog because I waited too long to look at your previous blogs but, I LOVE your drawing. What are the demensions, and how much? Seriously.
Thanks Sarah!! If you're seriously serious... I would suggest waiting until maybe the middle of summer- I should have a lot more work to choose from and I plan to do a lot of work from photographs I took on the honeymoon... But the dimensions are 14" x 18" with a 2" border (I think, I'll have to double check when I get home). It's not framed at this point- so it would be $375. I do plan to frame it at Michael's and then I will change it to $400, unless the frame is cheaper than I anticipate.
In case you're curious about the price... I know it sounds expensive to some... But I have calculated about how long it takes me to do paintings, contour drawings, and more finished drawings and I have come up with a price based on size and time. Currently, my paintings are $400 per square foot, my shaded drawings are $300 per square foot and contour drawings are $200 per square foot. Based on the hours that I spend on all of them, that amount of money per hour equals right about what I earn now as a first year teacher... which is okay for now, but hopefully after more experience and more sold work, I'll be able to raise the price a little. I also plan to get back into pointilism a little bit; I plan to keep them very small because they take so much time... but I haven't done one in a while so I haven't been able to accurately calculate that price. I'm guessing they will be $500 per square foot, but I'll see. (I don't plan on doing any as big as a square foot though, so they should be all cheaper than $500). Sorry for the novel, but I felt like I needed to get that out there. I plan to make a website this summer (when I have the time to figure out how to do that) and I plan to sell paintings off of that. I'll put a link to it from this blog and let everyone know when it's ready. My goal is to paint next year and not teach at all... and not starve :) so I'll probably be recruiting you guys to forward my website to people and pass out business cards or something. I don't know- we'll see; I'll try not to be too sleazy about it. :)

Glen, I love you! You start my day off great.Windy: no price defending is necessary. I feel you now desearve to price your art reletively high, having your MFA and all. Which is why I cannot wait to get my MFA so I could feel good about raising my prices. Ah, work for cheap now, be famous later, right? Yeah, right.My word Verification: NFRZTHBNot For Riches, Zippers, Taters, or Hot tuBs!
