Still alive over here. Things have really picked up for me recently though, and it's kept me away from the computer for a while. What all do I have going on right now?
Well, first there's my art sale, going on now through the 22nd (see below for details). This is a great time for people to buy artwork, seeing as how Christmas is literally right around the corner. So keep that in mind!
I seriously need an agent or PR rep or something.
Other things happening in the world of LadyRiv... I've got TWO shows coming up next month where I've been asked to display original pieces. That's right.. TWO SHOWS. *dies* Unfortunately, both are being held on the same day, so I will only be able to attend one of them. My art will proudly be displayed at both though! How neat is that?!
The roster right now is 2-3 original paintings for EACH show, to be available for sale or auction. (I'm psyched about either option really, any extra money is good right now). I also will have a box of assorted, signed & numbered prints to sell as well. So hopefully these shows will be good to me.
Currently I have one painting nearing completion, and the other two for the first festival, The Butterfly Festival, sketched out and ready to begin. Feel the flames of my paintbrushes!!
I recieved some reference images for the paintings for the second show, The Florida Forest Festival, today. I'll browse through those as well as some photos that I've taken in the past to see what jumps out at me for this set.
Of course, I'll post the images of the paintings here once they're finished.
Speaking of photography, I've also got a photography shoot for a lady on the first weekend of November. She wants me to photograph her champion Mastiffs. I have no idea how to price this yet. The last photography session I did, I recieved $500 for. But that was $200 more than what I asked for, so...
But this lady is talking serious income for me too.. after the photographs, she's talking about yearly christmas cards, paintings, drawings... enough to keep me busy for months.
I hope it's not all talk.
Oh yes, contracts will be signed for anything she sets in stone for me to do..
I just have to figure out how to price it all so as not to frighten her (or her pocketbook) into the afterlife.
You see? This is why I need a PR or an Agent. That way they can go and talk and price and pimp my stuff.. and all I have to do is create.
Greg's already declined the offer. I've asked. He says I'm "better with people" than he is.
Anyone interested in taking the position? :P
