The Feed Your Soul Project
The 'Feed Your Soul' project is run by the lovely people at Indie Fixx. The idea was to allow everyone to have access to art for their homes. Since times have been financially unstable lately, not everyone is able to treat themselves to art. Artist's volunteer to the project and submit one piece - this piece will never be put up for sale either. Then the users, you, get to go onto the site and look at all the wonderful pieces (available as PDF's) and print whichever ones you'd like!
The project has already had an overwhelming response, and there are so many wonderful artworks to choose from! I know I have my eye on a view that I'm just waiting on frames for!
Now for the exciting news! My submitted works were released this past week!! You can see the article here. It's listed under my real name, but I'm sure you could recognize my style anyways :) I approached Indie Fixx's project a while ago, and submitted my artwork and had to waiting - trying to keep the secret - and now it's out!! :) You can't see it really on the small thumbnail, but the two little birds are cuddling.
As per the whole idea behind the project - this print is not available for sale in my shop in any shape or form. I may be painting a similar piece with birds...since they turned out to be little darlings in that tree, but I'm still working out ideas.
As for the original painting, I'm not sure what I'm going to do with that either. Currently it's hanging in my office, framed. I don't have any of my original trees to keep - except for the ones waiting to be sold, but they're just temporarily staying I hope. So I might just keep this one. :)
