An Artistic Challenge
For this period “between the years”, I have dreamed up an artistic challenge for myself as well. I have set out to complete 10 new paintings by December 30th and list them all at once on my website. All of them will be musical instruments, like the painting featured above called “Trumpet Trust.” I have begun to post pictures of them on a dedicated page on my website HERE.
|So this painting is a trumpet- but it is also more than just a trumpet. I will let you in on a few of its secrets. There is an elephant hidden in the background, a most trustworthy animal who has a trumpet of his own. The blue gray of the elephant forms the background colors allowing the golden brass trumpet to shine above. In the original painting, you will see the metallic glints on the instrument.
Look more closely and you will see words embedded in the artwork. What else do you notice? The original art will come to you matted in a white 16×20″ mat ready to slip into a ready made frame without the cost of custom framing. I have offered one framing suggestion above.
To kick off the series, I decided to do a postcard giveaway. Now this is not your typical giveaway where there is only one or two winners. Everyone wins! All you have to do is sign up for my newsletter ( I also need your address so I know where to mail the postcard to!) I will be mailing this postcard out to active current subscribers in February 2016 (like the painting on this postcard? You can see it and the rest of the series on my website)
