Elephants love to paint. I remember wanting to meet Kamala in the Calgary Zoo. She is now being sent to the Smithsonian.
http://www.calgaryherald.com/touch/story.html?id=9619689 some of her paintings sold for $1000.
I’m wondering, “What is the joy all about?” It’s something I witnessed yesterday by the office workers and delivery man at Williamsburg Financial.
There was a focus and elation as they picked up a brush with paint on it. In some ways, I’m more content igniting the creativity in others than selling my work as a Creative.
The front hall of my apartment is full of new work. The pricing is retail. I’m setting the rates to be higher than most as these are originals that will become prints as part of a line of wearables. Met some interesting textile printers recently, even a group that can make a wool tapestry from any design. $3000-5000 4 - 6 months later and Wow … fun!
The paintings then become patterns for paper jewelry. Recently we have a studio that is going to start producing the paper jewellery and walking smalls. We are stocking the shelves of the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington DC! Then I can go and see Kamala.
