Hi Friends! Happy Full Moon weekend!
Ok, so today's share might seem a tad unremarkable to some, but realize that my excitement lies more within what these little gifts and accents symbolize rather than what they actually are (I'll explain later;) )
I can't help it, I'm just really proud to share all the little things! Like, for example these really sweet vinyl stickers I've had made twice now. How clear and bright is that image?!? Along with these postcards I got last year that I use for 'thank you' notes and I've always been in love with my teeny tiny business cards.
Plus I recently designed these super sweet stamps for authenticating my prints and giving a more polished look to my outgoing artwork parcels.
Now let me tell you why these small things are so meaningful:
All of these little bonus goodies with coherent logos and the same 'look' and branding and all that good stuff that I pack with every purchase as well as hand out to folks I meet, is exactly what you would expect a well-seasoned professional artist to bring to the table. I mean, don't get me wrong, I have been creating and showing work locally for years, but it is only within the last few months that I've actually starting culling together all the trappings of an artist who actually "knows what they're doing." Ha!
Simply having prints available is totally new for me!
I guess what I'm trying to say, dear reader, is that I am tremendously grateful that my ambitions as a career artist are starting to blossom in ways that I could have only dreamed they would. Because these are all tangible objects associated with sharing my artwork, they're meaning feels all the more real.
It's truly amazing what the smallest symbols of professionalism or achievement can mean to one artist working her very hardest to make it in this bustling world:)
PS. Make sure you pop on over to my Instagram @caleighbirdart asap because I'm doing a Full Moon Goddess Print Giveaway this weekend! The winner receives an 11x14 inch gallery quality giclee print of their choosing from my two recent Bohemian Goddesses oil paintings. Yay!!
