Support Orange Graphix and Get a Painting!

If you’ve been following the blog, you already know that my husband and I are taking the plunge. We are opening a screen print and graphic design shop here in Orange, MA. We are so excited to be embarking on this journey together!

Side note: The question I get most is “Will you still paint?” Yes. Yes, I absolutely will.  Bring on the commissions. 🙂 

Support Orange Graphix

As we transition into this new phase, we are faced with lots of challenges that come up with opening a new business. And a good chunk of that is financial. Crowdfunding doesn’t feel like a good fit for us, but I have decided to hold a “Support Orange Graphix and Get a Painting” sale. This is a great way to support a local business AND get some cool art created during the 100 Paintings in 100 Days project. (FYI: That project will be hard to top. It was so intense! But I may try another soon…)

Day 96

Paintings, like the one above, are ready and waiting. Pick one price or two, it’s totally up to you. No matter what you choose, you have my deepest gratitude. By buying yourself (or someone you love!) a painting, you’ll not only get some art and you’ll be part of this bigger project that’s happening right now.

Search “100 Paintings” in the shop section to pick your favorites and support a local business. 

With love and so much gratitude,
Amber

                 What’s on the easel now: Commission piece in progress.

I have received lots of feedback about the daily drawings I was posting on Facebook.

I have heard quite a bit about how they are inspiring some of you to keep daily sketchbooks and journals on your own. I’m so proud of you guys. Please keep at it! (And post some of your art on my page, if it moves you.)

I have also heard that my daily posts are missed. Honestly, I miss them too.

I miss that push to create every day. No matter what the final result was – and it’s true, not every drawing was stellar.  But I did have some sketches turn out way better than I ever imagined. Drawings that wouldn’t exist if I didn’t have that challenge to nudge me forward.

So, I’m back at it. 

Each day for 100 Days I will be painting (and posting) a daily piece of art. What better way to improve my craft and see what turns up?

Hold onto your hats folks, this project is going to be a fun one. 

The Details:

Starting September 13th, I am going to paint one painting each day for 100 days.

I’ve got plenty of paintings (mine and other artists) hanging around and there is NO way I can keep 100 more paintings in my house without finding myself in hot water… so, these babies will be looking for new homes.

Here’s the cool part: Prices. On September 13th, the first day’s painting will go for $1. Day two (Sept 14th), the painting will be $2. Day three will be $3… and so on. Each day the price will go up a dollar until Day 100 when that painting will be, yep, $100.

Here’s where it gets interesting: I’m offering my mailing list followers the option to purchase them first. (Don’t miss out. Sign up here. And tell the people you like.) I will send out an email first thing each morning, by 9AM Eastern Time with an image, pricing and other details. That is your chance to grab it.

Each evening, the painting will be posted to the blog and other social media outlets. It’s all fair game after that. So, if something catches your eye, make sure you snap it up quick. The first one to get to it will be the winner. 

This is the perfect opportunity to purchase an original painting on the cheap.* 

For me, this is the most involved challenge to date. Committing to paint something every. single. day. for a 100 days feels a little nuts. I’m up for it, are you prepared for the ride? I’m a little nervous and a lot excited. I can’t wait to get started.

See you on the 13th!
Amber

Daily Paintings are on the horizon!

How cool would it be to get an original painting for a $1? $2? Granted they won’t be large pieces as I still have to function out in the world and my kids need to be fed from time to time. At least they tell that would be nice.

I’m talking about mini paintings. The kind you could keep in your car, on your desk, or displayed on a shelf somewhere. (Actually, I would be concerned about extreme heat in a car so let’s leave that idea out.)

I’m still planning the details of this project, but be assured I have no less than 100 mini canvas panels waiting to have love splashed on their surfaces. And they will need good homes when all is said and done. Maybe they could go home with you!

I’ll be sending out an email in a week or two (maybe sooner – once I get the itch there is no waiting) and all the details will be included. In the meantime, forward this post to a friend and tell them to sign up for my mailing list (make sure you sign up if you’re not already there), so they can get on board too. Paintings will be released daily, by email first, so you’ll be ahead of what’s happening on Facebook and other social channels.

Stay tuned, my friends. More details to come!
