Just completed and delivered a commissioned piece from an amazing funky era… love all that 50’s style!! For this piece, the poodle skirt was the important focus as well as the music. I was young during that time but remember all that music on those old phonographs played over and over. I, too, fell in love with the King and still listen to his music. No one could sing a gospel song like Elvis Presley! I loved creating this piece and when my friend opened it I saw the joy in her face and it made my heart sing…she loved it as well. It cannot get any better than knowing your art is finding a joyful home and what you created for someone appreciated. Thanks Linda!!
Thinking about pricing sent me into a long spell of calculations. Since it will be on consignment, my profit will not be as great. But, the exposure I’ll gain is worth it.
Next it was making removable tags, which was pretty easy. Writing a short bio of myself then taking it to be laminated. On a weekend, not so great as traffic and crowds were crazy. I wanted to find a nice business card holder as well. Nothing fit my style so off I went to the studio. I like my card holder as it is done with all recycled products and is colorful, one of kind! Tomorrow is gallery setup day…Hooray!
