In 2014 I had to bite the bullet and try to address the business side of being an artist. This meant the dreaded job of marketing the finished work rather than just creating more and more to eventually store in my studio. Part of this strategy was to make myself an ETSY store where I could sell very small pieces that would be affordable to most people. As it turns out, it is not so onerous after all and I enjoy making small "table toppers" that look very nice in an apartment or grouped on a bigger space. Most of these start out with a fragment from a painting ( either public domain or my own) which has been printed on fabric. From this small beginning I add fabrics to make a completely new composition. I am not particularly interested in "hiding" the original piece by matching. Rather I like the surprise of seeing it as part of but different from the whole composition. Most of these measures smaller than 20" and are priced under $200.00.
