I drew out the horses, filled them in with Inktense pencils and went over that with a wet brush.
Then I cut them out and layered them onto canvas panels that I had glued decorative papers to.
Then I went over the whole thing with another layer of sealer.
After that had dried, I copied them to my phone and added text in different fonts.
Then I sent them to the printer and when the copies come back, I will glue them onto the canvas squares that I painted black with thick acrylic paint.
I will paint the sides and level them out with sealer. Usually it takes 2-3 coats.
And then they will be done.
Here they are -
I also took some photos when I visited the horse stables.
I picked out a few and altered them until they looked the way I wanted.
I sent them off to the printers too.
I'll end up finishing them in the same fashion.
I've purchased a banquet style table that folds in half and should be easy to carry.
I found a nice quality black tablecloth on sale at Target. I'm thinking the black would work best with the black sides of my artwork. All of this will be my display.
I've got some rough primitive wood things in the basement that I can use to create some height and make it a bit more visually pleasing.
I gotta say, I was getting a bit freaked as all of this has added up but then I realized I was thinking negatively.
If I sell everything I'll be doing great and be able to recoup my expenses.
Besides, as they always say, ya gotta spend money to make money!
So I'm investing in MYSELF!
I also have my space at the Art/Antiques place so I can take what doesn't sell out there and the rest, will go to my work place and hang on the walls there.
I've sold several pieces at work, so there's definitely space for them.
OK! Time to go paint the canvases!
There's SO MUCH to do before Saturday and I still have a group of prints that won't arrive until Thursday!
See ya later!
