Tuesday was package day. I wrapped all my artwork up and shipped it down to Alpha Cult. UPS is awesome. It arrived the very next day. I promise, I didn’t try to make the packing so pretty, but those pastels were the only color tissue paper I had at the time.
Naturally, I had the feeling as I was driving to UPS that I was forgetting something. After I shipped everything I realized I forgot to ship Nic’s artwork too. The pieces he’s showing are ones that I’ve had in my shop so I told him I would throw them in with my shipment. Luckily, UPS is so awesome that I was able to send Nic’s stuff yesterday and have it arrive today. Anyway, I sent a lot of prints and twenty new original paintings. There were two pieces I wasn’t able to finish in time, but I think twenty new pieces is plenty. The unfinished ones will give me a jumpstart for the next show.
With all the originals and prints out of the way I am now working on some merch items, like buttons, pocket mirrors, sticker packs and wallets. I also have one more painting to finish for the front window display at the gallery. It’s a biggin…weighing in at 4′ x 5′ 10″. Yesterday I painted the background (pink and white for Valentine’s Day) and tonight and tomorrow I will work on the details (india ink because it’s my favorite). I forgot to take photos of it this morning so I’ll post some in progress shots of it later.
