Environmental awareness project

Posted by [email protected] on December 21, 2014 at 4:20 PM Comments comments (0)

I am starting on brain storming and sketching for a new painting series to do with environment and how it is abused by people today. We take more then we need, and soon there will not be anything left. This series will go into the abuse of earths limited resorses aswell as the global problems.  Hopefully there will be some time for me to make this series within the next year.

Owner of Deco de Mode day spa in Victoria saw my art work and decided to redecorate her spa with custom drawings made by me. I am also working on their look book. For this I started using a new medium PanPastel you can check some of the drawings in the gallery.

Q: How much do you charge for a painting?

Posted by [email protected] on August 10, 2014 at 1:25 PM Comments comments (0)

A: I charge what ever you want to spend. Together we can plan out what I can do with your budget. In the online gallery there are some samples of my previous work. This is how I arrive to the price tag:  I sum up all of the expenses on the materials I used, I also factor in how much time it took for me to finish the particular work of art, and the approximate shipping fees. That is why the larger you go the more expensive it will be.

Working on a drawing for a dear friend Justin Joseph Lanthier so far it's turning out really nice and cuddly.
