What do you do with the work you're not pleased with? Or portions of a piece that you really love - but the entire painting just doesn't "zing?"
With an outdoor exhibit coming up in April, I know from last year that folks who attend this event are not willing to spend a lot of money on artwork - and yet they're looking for a 'little something' to take home.
I was going through my stacks of 'UGHS' and found wee pieces of each that worked on their own. I decided to cut these into small works - and will float them on matboard, or vice versa, and sell them very inexpensively - some framed, some not. I've added a wee charm to these (remainders from my altered books days) - and will see how they go.
I've kept them very simple so as to keep the focus on the artwork and to give them a feel of 'abstract.' We'll see.
So what do YOU do with your bits? Got any more ideas? I'd love to hear!
