It's a wrap! My Artwork and the Golden Globes!

Those celebrites know how to get free stuff!  My artwork is now in the hands of Lorraine Bracco, Dennis Quaid, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Martin Short and many more!!!  Everyone that stopped by the IndiExhibit table in the Golden Globe gift lounge received a signed and numbered limited edition copy of my Vancouver BC painting.

We were a part of the record breaking GBK luxery gift lounge: the 'fun spot'  to be!  You can read an article about it that includes a mention of our Indie group!

I debated what to display on the table that would catch the celeb's eye.  I chose a framed print of my fuchsia painting and it did catch their eye enough to pick it up for a closer look!

 Lorraine Bracco, known for her roles as Karen Hill in "Goodfellas" and Dr. Jennifer Melfi on the HBO television series, "The Sopranos"  seemed excited about my piece :)

Kimberley Locke, who gained fame with her participation in the 2003 "American Idol" television series, and in 2007 garnered media attention for her participation in Celebrity Fit Club  looks pretty good with my painting!

Anisha Nagarajan, best known for her role as Madhuri, a shy call center employee in the NBC series, "Outsourced"  took a liking to it as well!

I just like Dennis Quaid - here he is standing in front of our table!  You can see my painting in the lower right corner.  Check out the pile of bags in the background!

I thought this was the cutest photo!  You can see Rico Rodriquez, best known for his role as Manny on the show "Modern Family" (nominated for a Golden Globe for Best TV Series - Comedy or Musical) holding our bag! 

Our reps said that our bags were a big hit!  People even started seeking us out and asking if there were any leftovers!  Very Cool!  Celebs were very impressed with our work as were many execs!

All in all it was a lot of fun and I am so glad I took part.  I also participated in the Sundance film festival and will get a write up posted on that up soon!

To purchase prints of my 'famous' artwork visit:  Fine Art America!  You can find all my info at http://www.artbylmr.com/

New Year, New Plan - where do I go from here?

Well, I have done the obligatory house cleaning and taken many bags to charity.  I even reorged my studio space a bit so that I have more surface space (that won't last long ).  Now what to do about my online presence.  I can spend many hours on-line promoting, updating shops, socializing and never get any painting or creating done.  Where do I go from here?

I am the kind of person that always wants to try something new. I have unopened scratchboard supplies, glass painting paint, books on How to Draw Dragons.....  I am the proverbial Jack of all trades, master of none.  If I hear about a new site that may drum up business - I want to join and set up shop.  There must be a better way!  I know I can't do it all, but I sure as hell want to try :)

Whew I needed a little chocolate before I go on.

I have thought a bit about what I want to accomplish in 2011, so in no particular order here goes:
  1. Work on Zazzle shop to add more designs and create all the newly added products by March.
  2. Create items for craft shows featuring my art on a weekly basis - pendants, trinket boxes, mirrors...
  3. Participate in at least 3 group shows and one solo show in 2011.
  4. Find a local printer that can print cards of my work in the 1st quarter.
  5. Learn how to engage people better on Twitter rather than just talk at them - ongoing.
  6. Get a better handle on how to use my Facebook business page - ongoing.
  7. Create a daily schedule segmenting my time so I do more art!  ASAP!
  8. Close sites that are not profitable and set up new ventures that hopefully are by year end.
  9. Become more active in the Rome Art Association by volunteering at events.
I'm sure there are more and many of these need to be broken down further, but the overall goal is to streamline my on-line presence and do more art! 

I would love to hear any comment or suggestions - PLEASE!

Do you have any goals  for the new year?
