Art For Trade!

A Timeworn Treasure..

“The chief cause of failure and unhappiness is trading what we want most for what we want in the moment”

In addition to a bunch of publishing opportunities, working on my store, and a huge spectrum of other activities — I have been trying to finish up a ton of pieces in my studio, so I can be stocked on paintings, assemblages and other handmade items to sell this fall — an area, I’ve been a bit slack on the last few months! I have tons of finished pieces, all ones I’m excited about, but it’s just such a pain to photograph them, i put it off…and off… and off… well, no more!

This of course has led to cleaning through my studio, and I am slowly photographing some older pieces I had set aside to re-work. For some reason or another, these are pieces I am not totally happy with, and don’t feel good about selling, but realistically — I won’t rework them – so out with the old, in with the new!

However, I still think they each serve a purpose, and simply cannot stand to toss them away! I created an “Art for Trade” set on Flickr — and will be adding to it as I can, so be sure to check back often… there’s a handful of items in it right now, and if you would like to trade for one of them– give me a shout!

Well, back to the grind I go! – Chrysti

(boy oh boy does it feel good to knock all these lil’ things off my to-do book!)

  2. Thanks for leaving a comment on my Random Arts blog about the article and the t shirt.
    You are so sweet. and today— you are looking quite organized with each project. How do you get so much done girl? The red in the bird piece is quite unusual – but definitely animated, strong and cohesive. Great work.
