I have been quite ill with a never ending cold and the vomiting virus for the past 8 weeks . I still have the cold but my sinuses are starting to clear a bit. My poor nose is red raw though.
I have been too achy to make new work which is really frustrating . I also had to pull out of putting work in May's Pop-Up Gallery in Redditch which is also annoying as I was looking forward to talking to people about my new series of poured paintings and the ideas behind them.
Due to being at home more I decided to hunt out some new avenues for my work. I found a website called Society6 which allows artists to sell their work worldwide as reproduced prints, canvases , tapestries , phone covers, mugs ,quilts ,curtains and clothing etc.
As I also have a passion for all things home and interior design this got me really excited. You may think buying a print or canvas is an extravagance but buying something you need like a phone cover, cushions,shower curtain or something to wear will get you a piece of art without the guilt. I have uploaded several pieces of work to the site so if you are looking for something for your home , to wear or a quirky gift idea that helps support artists then check them out. I have put a link below. Happy shopping !
