My daughter, Hannah, gets to put her artwork up on "the wall" at our favorite hang-out, Cornerstone Coffee, for the month of August! So, I've been matting and framing like a mad-woman the past three weeks!
It was sort of a fluke that she got in for the entire month. They are usually booked a year in advance! We're having our second annual Beatles Night on August 29th and we had originally wanted to have some of her Beatles work up over that weekend. Then, we got word that, for some reason, that month hadn't been booked and it was available!! It's so cool... we're so excited! And, I'm DONE with all the matting and framing!!! There are 32 pieces ready to go!! A few of them I didn't actually have to mat because they'd been done at The Art Conspiracy and this JL one we had done at the frame shop, but, most of them I did. These are all original works and she isn't going to sell originals right now, so now we need to figure out what to charge for prints!
Here is a sample of some of her work. This first piece is of John Lennon, all in words. That's right.... look closely... every bit of shading is done in words. Part his biography, part Hannah's thoughts about him. It's amazing. It took her many hours to complete... I don't even think she knows how many!!
The last one is a CD cover that she painted for her dad, to go along with the CD that she burned for him. (Sssshhh! Don't tell anyone about that!)
Enjoy the day!
