Huge Art Project On The Horizon And A Super Fun Anna Carey Author Event ~

Well ~

It's been a crazy couple of days.

I've taken on a huge art project.  I can't give you much detail other than I have 4 months to create 21 pieces of art.

I am desperately in need of new art supplies to get me started on this journey, soooo...

I think a sale is in order.  Don't you?

This sale is in my Zibbet Shop instead of Etsy.

Mainly because Zibbet doesn't require a coupon code.

You can get 33.33% off all my original pieces and the prices are already marked down for you.  So easy to use Zibbet!

There are 15 original pieces, including my newest art.  Would you like to have a look?  If so, just click Right Here.

I am over the moon excited about this new project.

It will require a lot of research but I'm ready to go!

I had to offer up a new bio photo for the project ~

I'm also knee deep in composing cover letters for children's book art agents.

These are the kinds of things that make me nervous and crazy.  The business end of art is not my strong point!

Along with my arty stuff last week, I also had fun author stuff to attend as well.

I went with my daughter to the release party for Anna Carey's new book  called "Rise" ~ Anna is such a sweetheart.  Funny, witty and gorgeous!

The signing was held at an amazing indie bookstore in Hollywood called Book Soup.

As usual, the local Young Adult fiction authors came out in support for Anna.

My daughter (a book blogger and future published author) knows all these spectacular authors, I'm just the mom!  :-)

Ohhh...and, we discovered that one of my puppies has double canines! ~ 

So...all in all, I've been busy.

I absolutely have to buckle down and get started on this new project.

As soon as I get the green light, I'll give you all the details.  

Until then, I desperately need new art supplies to get me started.  I need 21 canvases, a lot of new paint, countless ink cartridges and a ton of cardstock!

My hopes are that I can sell a few originals to at least get a good start on the first 5 pieces this week.

Any and all purchases made will help me immensely.  No matter how big or small, any purchase will be greatly appreciated!

I'll be back super soon with more news and some springtime photos!

"The Displacement of Prince Alberic" (Update: Now in Print Version).

Hello There:

I have been working on a new piece that is a bit different ~

I love black and white.

I love almost anything black and white, especially in varying degrees of tone.

I've wanted to experiment with a simple piece created in black and white for some time now.  Hmmm....with maybe just the slightest hint of color tint.

So....this is it ~

"Poor Prince Alberic.  Is he dreaming?  Has he been displaced forever or will he find his way home?  Maybe he's dreaming a simple dream in black and white, or, maybe he's not..."

Do you like black and white?

You can find "Prince Alberic" in my Etsy Shop along with all of my more colorful art.

If you're interested in a print version, you can find that in my Zibbet Shop.  The black and white tones really picked up nicely in the print!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  ♥♥
