This is my 46th blog for this year. I believe my first posting was in February or March. It was 46 weeks ago, at any rate.
Each posting has one of my photographs except for two of them (Memorial Day and the AIDS walk post). I seem to get quite a lot of positive feedback on the photos.
Perhaps my photos are far more interesting than what I write about? Many of those photos are of my current artwork. Many are not. I seem to get comments on both types of photos. I wondered what to do about that.
I am seriously thinking of developing a series of greeting cards or note cards using my photography. I’m always looking for interesting note cards to use for birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, etc. I seem to have a surplus of birthday cards when I need an anniversary card.
Lately, I search out those cards that are not specific to any event; cards that can be used for multiple occasions or for no occasion at all! Generic cards that are non-specific. That’s the route I’m thinking of exploring.
I spent the past three weeks looking thorough my digital images, looking for images that are interesting and non-personal. You really don’t think you’d want note cards with pictures of me, my family or our friends. We are far too boring. My cats & tortoise are not boring. They’re cute (if a reptile can be cute)
I then concentrated on images of my artwork. My art, after all, is what this whole venture is about. I realize that in this economy purchasing artwork is a luxury few of us can afford. Perhaps this is an affordable venue for getting my artwork out there in the world. I looked for interesting images that are not too similar. I sorted for diversity in the images. I think I’ve achieved that.
The images here are those being used in the note cards. I’m seriously interested your feedback on this venture and these images.
