Summer Art Print “Great Point Light”
This original shingle painting, “Great Point Light,” is being varnished in preparation for inclusion into an exhibit that will essentially provide a fund-raising opportunity for a Massachusetts non-profit later this summer. Though not available as a print on my website, it is one of the family of such lighthouse paintings I completed in acrylic paint, each one on a wood shingle, some years ago.
Below, see the finished shingle mounted and ready to drop off for the fund-raiser exhibit. I don’t normally sell originals such as this shingle painting but in this case, the shingle itself will be for sale. More information on the nature of the fund-raiser at a later date. In the meantime, you may like other such prints from this Lighthouse Series as seen here.
Question for you: Have you ever purchased a single graphic print? An art print? A photo print? Maybe right now, here as this lush month of June unfolds – instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print. Or, how about a Honey-Bee print? Or, a golf print? A lighthouse 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 original print, this summer.
Prints are all produced using high-quality materials– pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit often, as the new year moves thru summer. Buy a print every now and again, one that moves you. As the Pandemic seems for the moment to have wound down (we hear rumblings…) 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, or golf print…not bad gift choices for a friend or relative!
Customize your selection. 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.
“Can I brand my Americana posters?” To the question, “Can you brand my posters?” the answer is decidedly, 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 is the hashtag I will incorporate to try to identify this program, on-line.
Exhibit Page, New! Thank you for your steadfast, enthusiastic support of my new Exhibit page, designed to show off to best advantage how examples of my original images appear when matted, framed and hung on the wall! I have added new examples every now and again and will continue to expand this feature of my site in months, just ahead.
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, one that will focus on a series of recent studies in oil-crayons completed since last summer. Look for it, soon.
“Business Advice” for day: Can a trip to the beach be seen as a reward for having slogged thru the week? I think so. Is there a comparable experience in the business world? I think so. A family member has had a grueling week, and today he is walking the beach on Long Island with his once-stray dogs…certainly a kind of compensation for his own grueling week in the business world. I am glad for him…and would wish for anyone a restorative experience after grappling with the realities of business in any given week.
Have some creative fun building your print collection this year. Try a new Americana Poster print purchase…this summer. Still time for July 4. And do see my new promotional video on Youtube! In this season of chicks and chickens, take a look!
