Although my blog doesn't show it, I've been a busy beaver lately. In addition to the whole school fiasco thing, cleaning house, doing those lovely chores like laundry, and being Mommy, I've been compiling a photo portfolio of 33 recent collaged monotypes to submit to another art repro company, this one focused primarily on the children's market. I don't want to jinx myself so 'nuff said about the details on that...but suffice it to say that I'm really excited to find them and really hope that they like my work. I've been dying to show you more of the images I've been creating, but because of piracy concerns I need to keep them undercover for now.
Anyway, in naming the images I did in a brown and pink palette, I think I coined a new word: BRINK (brown + pink). Much easier to say than the whole color combo.
I want to apologize for the lousy photo. I've been struggling with my photographic options, as I still only have a point-n-shoot camera so I can't focus properly. That and the whole lighting issue...if I shoot them in the shade they have a terrible blue cast to them that I can't seem to edit away, but if I shoot them in direct sunlight it messes up the light meter plus it causes cast shadows like those you see above (sigh). When our house sells (I'm exercising my faith language here...WHEN...not IF) I'll hopefully be able to get the equipment I need. Unless we take a loss when it's all said and done....which in this market is becoming more and more of a possibility....but we have faith that it will all work out.
Here's another brink one. It would look sweet in a baby nursery all decked out like in the Pottery Barn Kids catalog, don't you think?
This trio would be more suited to a non-juvenile audience...could you see them placed either horizontally across the length of a sofa or stacked vertically for a strong visual play on negative and positive space? Now if I can only find a company who thinks so too...
