Wine Charms – First Run!

I created 5 pendants as a test run and finished 3 out as ‘wine charms’!

Now you can collect more of my art and
be sure you are drinking from your own glass! πŸ˜‰

See my ‘Wine Charms’ gallery for some initial promo shots…

Wine glass with charms by Jamie RoodΒ  Pendants by Jamie Rood

Note they can also go on beer mugs as well πŸ˜‰

They rurned out really well and look forward to refining the process. Only got one bubble on this first run and may need to pull back on the amount of resin, but really pleased overall.

They will be available individually, but Collin Welch made an excellent suggestion to sell them in sets of (4). So I May do the following sets:

* old trucks
* trees
* architecture
* flowers
* etc.

These can also be incorporated into necklaces etc. or just strung together.

Artist or Wall Decorator?

One question I pondered for the new year is:

“How can I share my work with & allow people without large amounts of wall space to collect my art work?”

As an artists am I not expected to think outside the box – or frame? Of course one needs to be careful not to ‘cheapen’ their work especially when doing limited editions. Often I receive ‘Wow!s’ & ‘I love your work’ only to followed by – ‘if I only had wall space’. Occasionally I’m honored when someone tells me they use one of my images as wallpaper/background on their computer screen πŸ™‚

So, really, ‘is my artwork only to be displayed on walls?’
– am I an ‘Artist or Wall Decorator?’

For 2010, I look forward to not only bringing you intriguing images, but interesting & accessible ways to enjoy and collect my artwork. Although not groundbreaking by any means, here are a some ‘products’ I am looking into:

* Pendants – small versions of selected works embedded into metal pendant frames for wine glass charms, hung together on leather string, even wearable, etc.

* Themed Coffee Table Books & screen-savers – (like old trucks), series

* Licensing – have had authors & such inquire about using some of my images.
If you are an enterprising fan of my work, let me know. I will address these request a little better this year.

* Puzzles? several request for these as well.

Please remember my fine art prints, especially larger limited edition canvases, are my primary product focus.

Networking with fans & collectors is also priority – so, as always, if you have thoughts or requests please comment. One note though, please limit ‘suggestions’ to things you would seriously be interested in πŸ˜‰

Thanks! πŸ™‚

Stem of grass takes refuge in this shell of an old hatchery panel truck (see previous post for frontal view). Started to name this ‘Aeons & Asylum’, but thought that might be a little too deep. However if you see a little age, renewal, apocalyptic, epoch etc., that’s quite alright πŸ˜‰


What does this mean to you?

Hatchery Panel Truck
