so I promise the video of the warehouse and such IS coming.. might not be until next week.. but wanted to come on and share a little bit of art with you!!
As you know.. I signed with the Painted Planet Licencing Group.. and I spent this Spring getting ready, creating new designs.. for the New York licencing show, Surtex! (okay.. really I should say "spent the last 3 weeks of April) not spring! lol.. but I worked hard for 3 weeks and finished my portfolio with 14 collections and 60 designs! I was seriously wondering how I did it.. but i did.. and I was so anxious for the response!
Surtex was this last week (sunday-tuesday i believe).. and my dear friend Julie.. who is also my creative "editor".. she was hired by Painted Planet to guide me and give me creative direction on my collections.. which by the way.. she was amazing. I could NOT have done it without her! She told me I could do it.. even when I didn't think I could. love that girl! Anyhow.. she texted me during the show.. telling me that it was going GREAT! That I had a ton of interest in my collections.. so I am SO excited. I don't find out officially anything for a few weeks.. but just feeling so blessed and thankful. Thankful first for the opportunity, thankful that all those sleepless nights and crazy days of putting my heart and soul into my work.. paid off. Just Thankful.
Anyhow.. I wanted to share with you just a couple of the designs I did.. I am also excited because we will be adding prints of some of these designs very soon to my store... I will debut them in Texas in a few weeks.. at the Gilded Life Art Retreat in a few weeks. I am bringing both prints and canvas originals and will sell them at the vendor fair. I am SO nervous but excited at the same time! I have only ever sold one of my originals.. I have given away several.. but have only ever sold one. I have just always thought it so funny that anyone would ever want to buy something like that. From me? They are also extremely special to me.. and each one I make.. has a purpose, a reason behind it.. So it's hard to imagine not having them on the shelves in my studio.. to just go to and look at whenever I want. BUT it's also exciting to think that someone would WANT an original piece of art from me or even a print. It's weird and crazy and good all at the same time! The store will be coming available in the next couple of weeks! (still trying to decide if I put them in the Scarlet Lime Shop, or just open an etsy store for just my prints). Decisiions decisions.. Nervous.. but can't wait to take that leap!
so anyhow.. just wanted to share with you just a few from my Portfolio..
