No So Deep Thoughts from the Artist In the Basement

It’s all black and white March 7, 2008

Recently I wondered what it would be like to fill a white space with black shapes.  This small ponderence started me down another art journey that resulted in my first sale of Art.  Now, to be clear, I have sold things before.  I sell my art on greeting cards, mirrors, magnets, a bird house and of course I have sold lots of jewelry.  But this sale was the first piece of Art for Art’s sake – Art that has no other function than to be admired.  

The sale then inspired me to make more of my black and white or “Filigree” pieces.  I now have a series of 6, all available on my Etsy site (http://www.beautifullystrange.etsy.com)  Pictured here is “Bird on a Pedestal” my latest work in the series.  As always, I would love to hear your thoughts.

    I think it is really wonderful. I like the graphic punch.

    I love the bird. What a wonderful contrast. On one hand it’s stark, but then on the other hand it isn’t. It’s actually fun. Wonder what it would look like if done in different colors. I imagine the feeling of it would be different based on what color you used.

    Hi Kathleen,
    Way cool, selling something beautiful for its own sake! And it really is. Love it.

    I’ve always admired black and white art. It has a simple, elegant quality to it. I really like this piece, and especially the bird. I like bird art too. Doing a series is a great idea. I’ve never attempted that yet. Great work, and keep it up.
