Happy New Year! 2012 is already looking good!
Happy New Years to all my Kickstarter backers! Things are developing rapidly for me after the campaign completed. My website will change soon and I’ve had a number of opportunities open up which I would like to keep you informed of as time goes by. It looks like 2012 is going to be a very good year.
I have about 4 large canvases to complete and photograph before I layout the catalog. Once it’s published and I send out the remaining rewards, and the Kickstarter project is complete, I’d like to migrate everyone who is interested to my website and subscribe to my newsletter. This is how you will be able to track the results of your support and my ongoing career. With any luck your rewards will increase in value rapidly!
In the midst of the activity in my studio I have also formed a new business you might be interested in called Sketchy Art and Culture Tours. It’s an art and travel company operated by me, Beth and our friend Marianne Filloux. Our first project offers tours in France in the summer of 2012. You can learn more at the website www.sketchytours.com. I hope you can join us.
From what I’ve learned about the art market people are still buying art. The highest end art never slowed down. The middle art markets are simply looking for great deals. So I got that going for me, which is nice.
Thanks again, I’ll be in touch again soon.
