Merchild is today's Giclee Release!
I had been working on this composition and I adored the way the figures came together, but there was something missing... while working on a commissioned piece, I had a big blob of green paint left over and decided to introduce these figures to the green. Suddenly, my previous love of creating mermaids came back and I found myself very much enjoying the process of adding detail and sparkle. My previous mermaids were very detailed and whimsical.
Along with birds and Chinese painting techniques - whimsical details are characteristics that I want to re-introduce into my current style.
WHAT IS A GICLEE ANYWAY?
Giclees are Museum quality Fine-Art reproductions, also called Archival Prints. These are the result of highly advanced digital printing technology using fade-resistant archival (acid free) inks inks known to last at least 70 years.A Giclee is the closest to an original painting as you can get.These prints are made using an ultra-high-resolution printer, using enhanced smooth matte acid free paper.The color, quality of materials, and overall look makes a Giclee much more valuable than any other type of reproduction. Notably more valuable if the edition is limited to 100 prints or less, and if the Giclee has been pencil signed and numbered by the Artist.
Brand New Glass Charms have been released!
I've just created a gaggle of Glass Charms based on the 85 8x8s Collection, a few are available through the Online Etsy Shop, but if you want one you don't see, shoot me a message or give me a ring - I can make one for you - OR I may have one already made. I have about 50 of them made. I just didn't want to overwhelm the Online Shop!
I hope you have a great Thursday! Don't forget to pop back in tomorrow to comment on the Free Cards Friday post - you could win!
Love & Sincerely,
