Winter ArtMy Really Important Life #20

Buying a print for yourself or for someone else can be a joy. Is a joy. I don’t do enough of it, myself. Here in the New Year, I’m going to make it a point to give many more prints to friends over the course of the coming year.

If your chosen topic is a bit unconventional, the stakes go up…or down, as the case may be. Here is “My Really Important Life #20.” This print is part of a series of such paintings I completed some years ago. The aim was to call attention to our fascination with electronic devices as a central feature in life. In each case, I paint a subject with one, two, or three electronic devices plus a cheeseburger. That’s it. One person and only one person “working” in a spare environment. Whatever life is happening, whatever is going on…does so only because of the connection between the devices and the individual. Now, this is strange deal, isn’t it? And yet, how typical it has become. Hence, the title of the series.

My Really Important Life #20,” part of series on topic.

Below, see the same image in a different setting. All components are the same, except the wall color and the room, itself. When you order this print, “My Really Important Life #20,” or any other print from my site, you have quite a nice variety of sizes, print materials, mattes, frames and installation techniques to consider.

The purpose is to make “buying art” on-line easy, desirable and gratifying. No longer do you have to go anywhere to get done– no frame shop, no gallery, no retail outlet, whatsoever. The package arrives likely by UPS…ready to hang! Hence, the joy/s in buying a nice print, or even an original. Good therapy for a tumultuous time? It is…for me.

Question for you: Have you ever purchased a graphic print? Maybe right now, still early in the winter season and the New Year– instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print. Lift someone’s spirits! Consider an art print…as a gift to a friend, today. This can be a joyful experience! When I give a print, it certainly is a joyful experience. 

Prints are all produced using high-quality materials– pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit often, as the year moves into the New Year, 2022. Buy a print every now and again, one that moves you.  In our ongoing pandemic period, what better way to celebrate than…with a winter art print…perhaps a gift to a friend or relative. 

Two unusual and decidedly helpful features on my art site: The first– WALL Preview, a capability that visualizes your art selection in your specifications as seen in different settings; living room, bedroom, sitting room, conference room, these sorts of things, as referenced, above. Secondly, the Live Augmented Reality feature that allows you to see your chosen art work on YOUR wall…in your setting. Pretty exciting stuff, an under-appreciated feature.

Check out several categories of original art and prints on my site; Instagram pixphotospaintingsillustrationslimited editionsoriginal painted works and Americana posters.

“Business Advice” for day: Here mid-January in the still-New Year 2022, the weather has been as stormy as our politics. I try to “do some art” every day, or every other day– my current fascination finding its focus in the utilization of oil-crayons, a medium I haven’t used in decades, and one I’ve never, until now, explored in a serious manner. What a gratifying experience this is! So, I guess one can extrapolate…and conclude that perhaps amidst all the uncertainty of modern life, one can stretch a little bit, find a new medium, a new means of self-expression to pursue. One reward for such an undertaking is…you develop a new means of communicating, interacting and sharing…with family and friends. This is a valuable exercise, in my view. I would commend it to anyone, remembering (in my case) art as a medium is open to everyone.

I extend a special thanks for your interest and support of my work.

Been in the visual arts all professional life, am eager to post examples of Instagram prints, photo prints, graphic and fine art (painting) a disciplined fashion...signs of the times, if you will.
