So....this is a great new print available in my store - and is also available as a postcard:
It is based on my painting.....and I told you all about the production of this piece HERE! So here are the deets on this print:
A Giclée (pronounced "jhee-clay") is a sophisticated inkjet method of printing on acid free watercolor paper. These are produced for Rob by a professional Giclee Printer on an Epson printer with K3 pigment inks. Each is printed in 2 sizes, 16" x 20" ($80.00) and 8" x 10" ($35.00). These are small editions.....so you'll wanna get 'em while you can!! The imagery is 100% MINE, and is based on a portion of a previously painted original. The paper is high qualtity, acid and chlorine free 100% cotton rag paper. Which is NICE paper!
You can buy this one in my store....and you can also buy it in Hamilton at The Hamilton Store or at The Cotton Factory.
You can't see the original right now......because it is currently hanging at Hamilton City Hall:
That's me above with Mayor Eisenburger of Hamilton!
SUPER EXCITING TIMES FOR ME!!!
So....there you go!
Go buy a postcard or print of the NEWEST Hamilton print!
So....for part of March and April I did an art challenge with a few other people. WHAT IS AN ART CHALLENGE?? Basically I was required to post a photo (on a private Instagram account) every day of SOMETHING artistic that I did...which meant I couldn't take a whole day to complete something! The ONLY proviso was it COULD NOT be like my regular artistic practice.
Now....being a type A....I FREAKED OUT.....
I am not good at putting something out there that is not PERFECT...or at least not perfect to me...in that moment!
So it was a real challenge for me...and my fragile ego!!
HOWEVER, it was a safe way to try new things....without exposing myself to judgment or ruining 'my brand'...
(oh man, I hate that term! ;-)
Some of the things worked out....and others.....well....not so much....
BUT I have decided to share SOME of the VERY MIXED results with you guys.....
I also did some video work....most of it is pretty STOOOPID....but please enjoy....
See? DUMB!!! The next video sparked my INTENSE LOVE of slo-mo!!
I love the sound when my hand hits the puzzle....
Then there is this one....
Paint it Black......
Then below is a can that I cut and reassembled on a music box...
I call it "Dancer Escapes"...
I love it when she kicks the can and it begins to warp!
It was totally an accident!!
FINALLY this is just a backstage tour of my Theatre paper piece...
THE BACKGROUND is copy-write of Kim Atlin 2017
So there you go.....after 30 days I have some new ideas....and had some fun! I hope you enjoyed seeing the highlights....
So...I KNOW I promised a bunch of new land/cityscapes to you guys....but I have really been feeling the love for my robots!
I am hoping to have a whole show of new robots to debut SOMEWHERE later this year....or maybe next year??
IF YOU KNOW of a place that my space themed stuff would be a perfect fit....I would LOVE to hear from you!
IN THE MEANTIME.....enjoy this new bot.....
I am trying to scale back the amount of BUSYNESS in my paintings...
I was hoping I could make this work without having to paint every area of the canvas board.....
NEGATIUVE SPACE is HARD for me...I am just NOT a "less is more" kinda guy....I'm more of a MORE IS MORE kinda guy!!
BUT....see what you think....
.....I kept adding details - because I found it so boring - and my husband would keep giving me advice on SCALING back! SO GLAD to have had his help (and that I don't have to pay him)!
HERE is the final bot (sorry for the watermarks - I'm paranoid) :-)
Meep Morp Bleep
