Art for Sale: Love Actually

LOVE ACTUALLY

Love Actually

Original artwork printed on lightweight photoblock board, with individual decoration by Yours Truly.  Just added bits and pieces as I felt inspired.

The centre rose is from a photo I took of the Apothecary’s Rose in my garden – it’s an ancient rose native to the Turkish region. The rose is a reminder of the power of love, its longevity and its inspiration in our world today.

The hearts represent the love that resides in our hearts and which we can access with goodwill and intention, while the butterflies represent the transformative power of love

The three-pointed leaves on the right-hand side remind us of the fusion of body, mind and spirit and subsequent optimism, self-expression and connection to the divine flow. There are also three beads radiating out, including the centre bead, which again remind us of the cosmic power of love; between each radial spoke are four beads  which represents the courage to embrace love and all its splendour in our everyday life.

In total there are twenty-two beads, a master number, which invokes spiritual, physical, emotional and mental mastery in one’s life.

The artwork is 16.5″ x 13.25″ (41.75 cms x 33cms).

Price: US$55

Postage & packaging: US$15

Registered post: US22.

Art for Sale

I’ve been having great fun fiddling with original prints and adding my own decorations to make each one unique. I’ve decided that, yes, my art is whacko, eccentric and quirky so I might as well dance with my visions and enjoy myself.

FREESIA FROLICS

This is original artwork I’ve created, printed on lightweight photoblock, using a photo I took of yellow and orange freesias in our garden. I’ve added red ribbon, obsidian cabochons, metal ornaments, glitter (of course!), a focal Tiger’s Eye cabochon, some jasper chips, roses, a butterfly for the transforming power of love,  and a hanger with orange and yellow beads. If you enjoy gifts for Valentine’s Day, this might be up your alley or just for your own enjoyment, Price: US$65.00, postage to be advised as they’re just upped postal rates in North Cyprus.  Size: 42 x 34cm (16.5″ x 13″).

2. HOPE

Hope is digital art created by myself, printed on quality art paper, with a light cream, board frame. It’s a bit hard to see the frame on the post, but the board is 4.5cm (1.75″) wide all round. I’ve decorated the frame with foil ornaments, rainbow flat back Swarovski crystals, yellow glass, and a green outline. Price is US$45, postage to be advised because, as above, postal prices have just increased in North Cyprus.  Size: Frame 28.5cm x 34cm (11.5″ x 13.5″). Print size: 20cm x 25.5.cm (11.5″ x 10″).

Changes…..

It’s been all change at our home since I held my art exhibition last Saturday.  Most of my artwork has stayed at Vicki Karaca’s Black Olive Cafe & Studio as she’s going to keep it on display and for sale.

I must say, it feels quite odd not to have paintings stacked up around the place. I have changed quite a bit of artwork in my study – centring the vision board art on one wall, with down the side a photo of a sacred site in France (I think) and the artwork I created from that image. I have lugged the photo I took of this site to various places we’ve lived but, as I was getting so many pieces of digital art printed onto photoblock, I decided to finally treat myself to a print of this lovely scene. Beside my desk is my favourite artwork, Robot & Empire. And I’ve also revamped my sanctuary table so it’s less cluttered.  I have on it two of my favourite natural quartz wands, together with angel amphibole quartz pieces which I love. In the centre is my large spider pendant.

Most of all though, my artwork has crept into our front room.  We’ve always had the Celtic mandala hanging on the wall after I got it framed when we were living in Traralgon, Victoria. But now we’ve got my three photos of sun scenes in North Cyprus hanging up and we’re also going to hang some more of my artwork which we’ll have to retrieve from The Black Olive. This is quite a change for my husband, as he’s not a great fan of my abstract digital art – he likes rational art like still life, landscapes and so on.  Bryan’s the logical one and I’m the one who’s off with the fairies. We agree to differ but, somehow, things have shifted since I got all my art together in one place for the exhibition.  Ain’t no holdin’ this baby!!!!

Mother Courage

Mother Courage
Quite a while ago I used to add my art to a site called Squidoo, but then I clean forgot about it as I moved to other sites which were more user-friendly.  I suddenly remembered Squidoo last week only to find that it had been taken over by HubPages which said it would switch my account if I wished to. So I thought “In for a penny, in for a pound”, completed the details and then got notified two days ago that the switch had been carried out.

I thought I’d create a couple of “hubs” (honestly, why do these web sites use such stupid terminology?) with my digital art and photos of Australia, only to find that once I’d published them, they would have to go to a vetting process to see if they were good enough for HubPages and also got told that, as soon as I started operating, I would be open to sanctions if I crossed their high standards process. Plus – wait for it – I had to create a minimum of five “hubs”.  Hmmmm, sounded like control freaks at work big-time here!

I started having the heebie-jeebies then, and got them even more when I got a condescending note telling me my hubs weren’t good enough but, hey, I  could go to boot camp where some jolly jokers would tell me where I’d gone wrong. I looked at one “hub” which had been, ahem, through “boot camp” and it had now expanded from 250 words to 2450 and from 4 photos to 24. That sounds like a lot of work when I’m also involved in writing blogs and creating art!

Now I don’t know about you, but the pretentiousness of the whole process, telling me loftily how to improve my writing (excuse me?) and concept of “boot camp” got right up my nose. The other art sites I use let you control our own output without someone standing over you like Mr & Madam Lash, toying with whether you’re good enough or need a good old touch of the whip!

I checked on-line and found similar complaints about the control freakery at HubPages plus the arbitrary nature of their decision-making. I also found out that you do all the heavy lifting of writing hubs and posting pics, and they make their money off your hard work because they’re linked with Google.

So I told them to poke their website where the sun don’t shine and closed my account.

The good thing is that it caused me to focus on the fact that I like to manage my own affairs, plus I promptly decided to get into gear to sell my art on-line and here in North Cyprus.  I have posted photos to my Facebook profile:

https://www.facebook.com/cosmicsinger/media_set?set=a.10202715176944537.1073741868.1352531015&type=1

and my original digital artwork can viewed on my Flickr page:

If you would like a print of any of my artwork, you can go to my Dropr page where you can download a print for a price you set, from $5 upwards,  and then frame it or get it printed onto canvas if you wish:

I do ask that people respect copyright of the work I put into my digital art and pay for any artwork you like. 

That’s it, folks, Mother Courage has suddenly stood tall and told idiots like HubPages to get knotted. I’ll manage my own writing and artwork, thank you very much!

 

 

Customised Digital Art – Just for You!

COMING FULL CIRCLE

In late 1995 I had a Tarot reading where the lady predicted I’d do a short painting workshop and then start drawing images for people. At the time I thought she was barking mad and I’d done my dough because I was utterly hopeless at art. But shortly afterwards, in February 1996, I attended a 2-day mandala workshop and  I was off and running art-wise: I found that my forte in art is symbols. I started off with mandalas for friends and then for personal orders. Then I started creating what I called “SoulSong” art which portrayed the colours and shapes I see around people. And now I’ve returned to creating symbols for people through digital art.

I am therefore now offering customised digital art for individuals.  You can order and pay on PayPal and all I’ll need you to do is send me a photo so I can tune into you and create your own piece of digital art.  The cost is  US$25 and, when it’s completed, I’ll e-mail you the image.  You can then print it out, or get it printed onto canvas or as a poster via one of the many websites offering this sort of service. Please remember that I live in North Cyprus so there are time zones to take into account when waiting for me to get back to you. If you decide to buy digital art for yourself, please send me a photo of yourself at:
