Happy New Year

January 8th, 2016

Happy New Year

Hope you are all having a Happy New Year. I hope to continue uploading new art works, such as New Year's Sky this year.
Recent news from Fine Art America includes work offered through their other domain name, which is Pixels.com So my art will be offered there as well, where they market iPhone cases and clothing with art.
We continue to seek opportunities for the cinematic release of the Academy Award Qualified feature film CHRISTMAS RIDE (rated PG by MPAA.org) which has a very fine quality DCP (digital cinema print) for showing in theaters. Movie houses interested may contact me at kfrancis427@gmail.com for arrangements. More about the film is on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ChristmasRide, and christmasride.wordpress.com, with trailers on youtube.com/blessings427 and www.artprofilms.com

Recommendations for New Duvet Selections

November 18th, 2015

Recommendations for New Duvet Selections

Sometimes a new product offering catches your eye, and there seems to be too many choices. So, today I have selected a few of my works that I think work especially well as "Duvets" which are also known as Bed Spreads, Covers, or Blankets to many. From my Abstract images I recommend:
"Lion in the Park"
"Light in the Darkness"
"Seascape Abstracted"
"Memphis Street Scene"
"Fusion Fun"
Of course, if you are into realism, or locale, there are several others that make a strong statement.
All purchases come with the 30 day money back satisfaction guarantee. Click on the image from the artist profile gallery page, or search for it by name. You will see the product choices and many can be customized by color or size of the image on the product.
You could send old covers to those in greater need, and buy some of these new artistic originals, because it won't be long until you hear someone saying, "Baby, it's cold outside!" And you will have just what they need.

Art Auctions

September 23rd, 2015

Art Auctions

I haven't had much experience auctioning art. Early on in my painting career I tried one, and was very disappointed in the sale price of the work. In some ways, I felt like the beautiful painting was stolen from me because of the low price it achieved. But I was also grateful the painting had sold at all.
Some auctions are "brick and mortar" like some art galleries, having a physical street location where people come to buy. Others exist only in cyberspace online. And some in both. This website http://www.auctionzip.com contains many auctions, some in the future and others in progress. I watched one today which included a live video stream as the auction progressed in France. Each auction contains various products, some only Art and others Furniture, or other collectibles. I think it is preferable for artists to be able to set a minimum. There is also a commission taken from any proceeds by the auction house, but it is usually lower than a gallery commission. I have found that some large, famous auction houses will not auction the art of living artists, unless it is offered by a collector. Others, will accept consignments of anything, from anyone. The results at an auction depend on the interest level of the crowd in the product being sold, as well as the number of people present, when the item comes up for bid, whether there is a minimum attached, etc. I guess it would be best to have a large following and let your friends and collectors know in advance when you have work in an auction. Then hope that the auction house is advertising the event. http://fineart.ha.com/ is another online auction. FYI, after selling my art for 30 years, I've found that the small exhibition events which I promoted and held in my home, sometimes including a few other select artists, resulted in more sales than the internet, which I've had my art on for at least seventeen years now. (See http://www.artpro.com) It grows easier every day to buy and sell online,with websites like Fine Art America, and the confidence level of those who use the internet in its security for purchase transactions increases all the time, but the novelty factor has decreased some. We artists are very fortunate to be living in this amazing time where people all over the world have the possibility of stumbling across our images online. That's something poor Van Gogh did not have in his day.
