"All we've lost the stars have eaten                                                        

All that dies begins again                                                                 

Tears you've shed the earth has gained                                          

Buried 'neath a sky so strange it cannot be explained"               

-Dax Riggs

These otherworldly paintings explore and are inspired by the dissonance created when the dark meets the light.

Bringing this dark fantasy to light has been many months worth of work.  Each painting went through a very long process, starting as a thumbnail pencil sketch, I then photo the sketch, and in Photoshop paint a sepia tone under painting, this is then printed, and mounted to a canvas board, I then continue the pencil, acrylic Inks, Acrylic paints, and then finally, I begin the oil painting over a very polished under painting.  I tend to spend 3 to 5 weeks completing the oil stage, for each painting.

Once the painting is finished, I once again make a digital copy, and spend days perfecting each one, sometimes making significant digital changes, in order to have the best printed version possible.

Your purchase is not simply a retail purchase of a piece of paper with ink or oil paint on it, it is a contribution to my future as an artist, it is your way of telling me that I have made the correct life choice of becoming an artist.  And specifically, financially, it is paying for me to purchase these prints in bulk from a printing company, in order to be able to submit them to books, magazines, and art contests at very little cost.

Each order will have an appropriate shipping fee attached when the ordering.  

For questions, or to provide me with the specifics for your order, email me at kaydendigiovanni@yahoo.com

 

 

 

          

 STRETCH GOAL

If my goal of $2500 is met, I can then make the prints in this series.  BUT if my goal is exceeded... if I can raise over $3,000, then everyone who has placed an order will automatically receive an additional 11x14 Print of "THE QUEEN".  The Queen started this entire project, though I did not include her in the project, because I could not part with the painting, and she is much smaller than the ones above.  But I have now re-worked a digital version, and will make her prints available.... if you provide the funds!

 

Risks and challenges

There are 2 obstacles to overcome in making Art. First to find a buyer for the art. And second, the costs involved with making prints of the art available. With the Kickstarter platform, I hope to overcome both of these!

If the goal of $2,000 is not met, then you will not be charged for your order, and this project dies.
