Spring Art Print “Providence Skyline“
Confession: I have been intrigued with the pixel since it first came on the scene, and somewhere, have the painted evidence to prove it. Here is another example, my effort to explore the phenomenon of pixelation in the creation of an image of the Providence Skyline. The original work is done in acrylic and measures about 60″ x 40.” The view is seen across Kennedy Plaza toward the banks and financial district at the other end of the park, looking generally in an easterly direction. This was quite a bit of fun to paint, and of course, today I could pick up my brush and paint and go in to fuss with it all over again. But so far, am resisting the urge.
Below is the same image applied to a different setting, akin to a living room. The array of blues stands off the gray wall while the greens in the cityscape touch on the plant in the room, lower left, a simple scene.
Question for you: Have you ever purchased a graphic print? An art print? A photo print? Maybe right now, here as this most beautiful month of May settles in – instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print. Or, how about a Honey-Bee print? Lift someone’s spirits! Giving art, to give prints can be a joyful experience…even in trying times… such as now. When I give a print, it is most assuredly a joyful experience! In these testy, tumultuous times, think about giving an art print this Spring Season.
Prints are all produced using high-quality materials– pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit often, as the new year moves toward mid-beautiful-May. Buy a print every now and again, one that moves you. As the Pandemic seems for the moment to have wound down (before the next variant arrives?) what better way to celebrate than…with a spring art print…a lighthouse print, perhaps, or a poster with a patriotic theme, or a Honey-Bee print; not bad gift choices for 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.
Yes, You Can Brand Your Posters: In my Americana Poster Gallery you may find visual selections that resonate with your Spring state-of-being. Please take a look. To the question, “Can you brand my posters?” the answer is yes. Yes, I can brand these posters for you – contact me with questions. In short, your logo can be added at a discrete size to the lower right corner of each poster. I will show you a proof prior to production. #brandednonprofits
Exhibit Page, New! Thank you for your enthusiastic support of my new Exhibit page, designed to show off to best advantage how some of my original images appear when matted, framed and hung on the wall! This will be an expanding feature of my site.
“Business Advice” for day: Last weekend, I was fortunate to have dinner with a man I do not know who is devoting his life now to “helping people find reconciliations in their lives.” He is a devout individual. I find this proposition appealing for too many reasons to elaborate upon here, except to say that it does make wonderful business sense to go about our personal and professional lives seeking as many reconciliations as we can muster, does it not? Some people like to say, “Whatever works.” Others say, “If you have no integrity, nothing works.” In this man’s world, if you find reconciliation be it for a small or large problem, short term or long, things work. Heart, mind, soul come together. I think our Country could manifestly use just such an occasion.
You may find my new NFT art of interest (“Non-fungible tokens”), seen here on Rarible. More to come, a new collection in development as this is written. Have fun building your print collection this year. Try a new print purchase…this Spring! This is all viewable on Linktr.ee. A special thanks for your interest and support of my effort.
