Well, sort of. Maybe not a traditional printing press, but a printer none-the-less!
Are you sitting down for this? Okay, get ready.
WillettArtworks is catching up the times, hopping on the bandwagon- call it what you will- and starting an Etsy Shop!
You know that drawing or painting you saw here and really liked, but never imagined you could own? Now you can! Prints of many of the works featured in the galleries will be for sale.
Just visit the new shop, select a size and voilà! You’re the proud owner of a limited edition WillettArtworks print.
Also working its way through the presses…stay tuned for an upcoming interview with a truly talented and ambitious young artist, the greater DC region’s one and only, Taurean Washington! We talk creative influences, processes and advice for other young artists. You won’t want to miss this post!
Every so often, it’s good to branch out.
Wait. Let me rephrase that: It’s good to branch out often.
Habits are easy to fall into. It’s not always a bad thing. Some habits reinforce healthy behaviors and attitudes. On the flip side though, many habits inadvertently shield us from expanding our horizons.
They reinforce complacency, and quite frankly, get boring. Going against the grain is exciting (even if fleeting) and opens us up to new experiences, new challenges. And usually, it’s not easy.
It takes conscious thought and action. In some cases, it even takes courage.
But it’s worth it. For all of the riches many of us may never see, we can take stock in a lifetime of experiences that bring true wealth.
A lot of lofty thoughts for a tiny little art blog, I know. But I’m a firm believer that art (however you want to define it) and life are intertwined.
And though I hardly consider this art, especially since I know talented artists who work very seriously in fibers, or life altering art since it was only for fun (and for a great friend), here’s just one little way WillettArtworks branched out from the usual. Cheers to new and different!
