Earth Angels – A Wall Sculpture for the Planet





This is the first in a series of wall sculptures I plan on doing over the next month.  This is  an experiment where I’m incorporating my energy art prints into dimensional art.  I actually had a different one in mind for the first piece, but I’ve been hearing so much about volcanoes, tornadoes, fires, and crazy wild storms that I decided to do an Earth Angel protection piece.
I’ll be going back to my usual “in your face” color schemes next, but this one is about the planet, and the planet makes me think of greens and earthtones.  The energy art print I used in this piece is called “Mother Earth

(Whoa, do you think I used enough links? lol)
I got a wild hair the other day and decided to google  “Primal Painter”.   There were quite a few strange sites where I got mentioned, many seemed like they were overseas.  Did you know that your comments on blogs show up in google searches?  Tweets?  Wow,  I don’t know about this internet stuff,  I’m feeling kind of exposed.  

How weird is this?  This website has my words from a listing on Etsy  attached to one of their own images.  They changed a few of the words (which I highlighted) so it wasn’t an exact knockoff.   They even put some of my  images (excuse me, effigies)  on this page, too, without any links to me or my shop.   I think they pulled them off my wordpress blog. 

One of those prints hasn’t even been listed.  I feel a little violated I have to admit.  I guess I could change my attitude to “Wow, they like me, they really like me!”  I dunno, it’s just weird.  I emailed the owner of the website but got no response of course.  Since then, the print of the girl has been taken down and there are three of “The Violet Flame”, so I don’t know what the heck is going on.   All I know is “Ewwwwwwwwwww”!!

I think maybe I need  to at least protect my images.  I don’t know if there’s anything that can be done about words, especially when they change a few here and there.  I guess I need to put a watermark on my images so they aren’t so easy to steal.  I don’t know how to do that, so I guess I’ll add that to my overwhelmingly long list of computer related chores.  

Here’s the questionable website.  The image my words were attached to were of some statues in Japan.

“Healing Energy” by Primal Painter 
Abstract Healing Energy Art Photography Print
I created this abstract energy art print in March 2011  in response to the disaster in Japan.
This abstract art print is inspired by my wall sculpture entitled “Clearing the Chaos“.    Through a very intuitive procedure that reflects a distinct flow of energy, I created this piece of abstract art.
From beginning to end, I focalized on infusing the effigy with Reiki healing energy  in the form of colors, light and patterns. I believe that anyone could gain from the energy of this print.  Those who are sensible to energy might feel it in the form of vibrations, tingling, or plainly a lift in mood or sentiment of well being.
____________________________________________________________________
Dimensions: 8″ x 10″, could be hung vertically or horizontally. The effigy extends all the way to the edges of the paper
Colors: Red Violet, Reds, Pinks, Oranges, Yellows, some Purple, some Blues
Paper: Kodak Professional Endura Metallic Paper
I’ll sign, date, and title it on the back.
The metallic paper it’s printed on is very  glossy, pearlescent, and has a  shimmery glow with deep vibrant colors. I had it printed at a professional photo lab.
I plan on incorporating these new  energy art prints into three dimensional wall sculptures, original paintings and also into pendants, brooches, mini wall hangings and magnets.
To see other modern abstract art, energy art, wall sculptures and pendants, go to my Etsy Shop or my Artfire Studio.

Add a chic, modernistic look to any room with this striking pair of candle sconces! Matte black finish lends drama to slender curved metal wall plaques; each supporting a clear glass votive cup. Why not add your favored brightly-colored candles for an ultra-artistic display? Iron with glass cups. Candles not included. Each is 2 3/8″ x 4 3/4″ x 8″ high.

And how strange that these images are under a description for candle sconces!  If that’s not bad enough, underneath my photos were bad reviews…..of candle sconces!!!! Gah!!

I’m going to ignore it all for a while.  Once again, the computer seems, I don’t know, Eeevilllll!  The studio is a much nicer place!
Have a super fun weekend!

My New Strategy

I’m going to start putting the new things that I’ve listed on Artfire here in my blog complete with links, blah blah blah, all that SEO stuff.  I’ve decided I really need to make a push to generate sales because I’m tired of treading water (oh and I’m broke).

For someone who’s really laid back, I can be very competitive.  I seem to have lost that competitive oomph for the last few years, but there was a time when it was a driving force for me.  Of course, after achieving the goal, I would get bored and have to start from the bottom with something else.  Hopefully that won’t happen this time, but yesterday, I was excited to feel  that little defiant surge of “if other people can make x amount of dollars per month, so can I” attitude.

There are two main things I’m going to do.  First, I’m developing new products. The funky art pendants which I’m making with mini wallet sized prints of my digital energy art are really cool and affordable.  Plus, I’m incorporating my prints into ready to hang wall art.  I’m not talking frames and mats, I’m talking airbrushed embellished wood “mats” to enhance the presentation of the print in an affordable way. 

I don’t know about other people, but I’d be more inclined to buy prints that are ready to hang as opposed  to matting and framing them myself.   I’m thinking that presenting them differently from the other prints out there might set mine apart.

Second, I’ve decided I’m going to try Artfire’s 45 Day Success Guide.  I’m not the most self-disciplined person in the world, so I thought maybe if I announce that I’m going to do it, I’ll actually stick to it.  Gee, wouldn’t that be novel! 

The first week is mostly getting your shop set up and a getting a few things listed, so I got to jump to day 8 which is about writing in the provided blog.  (Really?  Another blog? Oh maaannn…..) Actually, they say that if nothing else, just write an introduction post about yourself and your artwork,  plus include a link to your main blog, so I guess I can do that. 

Melinda, from Inspiration Earth did a feature on me a few weeks ago, and I was thinking (with her permission, of course) that I would use excerpts from that interview as my introductory post, providing links to her blog and  her Artfire shop  Inspiration-Earth.  Melinda’s questions were so insightful and thought provoking for me, she really was the trigger for me pulling together my intentions into written form. Thanks Melinda!
Another important thing that was mentioned in this success guide, is how important it is to get as many products listed as soon as possible.  That way, your products will be indexed by google much faster and will show up in a google search.  This is different from the Etsy strategy of listing one thing here and one thing there in a futile effort to be seen at the top of the listings (for a whole, what? 5 minutes if that?)
Other important strategies, tweet your listing, post a link to your new listing on facebook, put a link on your blog, add it to stumbleupon, kaboodle, and something new called pinterest.  I haven’t actually checked out pinterest yet, but I’ve started doing the other things.  Oh and post in the forums three times a day. I tried that yesterday and got Nuthin’…no views, no nuthin’!

So we’ll see how it goes.  Such a beautiful day today, maybe I should wait to start everything tomorrow…..oh nooooo, get a grip, Laurie, remember the word “BROKE.”

Have an awesome day!

Later,

Laurie

An Artfire Collection called "I Love Abstract Art"

I have alot to do today, but I was excited that one of my new digital energy art prints was featured in a collection curated by AsktheMoon from Artfire, so I wanted to share it.

#widgetcont p{ padding:0; margin:0; } .title_brown, .title_brown a, .title_brown a:link, .title_brown a:active, .title_brown a:visited, .title_brown a:hover { color:#dfa754; font-weight:bold; }.title_charc, .title_charc a, .title_charc a:link, .title_charc a:active, .title_charc a:visited, .title_charc a:hover { color:#333333; font-weight:bold; }

I’m off to enjoy a beautiful 80 degree day!  I’ve started working on my art pendants and I got a new set of prints from adoramapix yesterday, so lots of work to do.

Have an awesome Sunday!
