My work of art, excellent, good and not so good…   1 comment

So finally I decided to get some of my photography work printed. So I ordered prints. Of course the intention was to sell them.

I started to plan selling and in the process I was identifying differet venues and then it occured to me that if I am selling only prints my solution is offering half the product and I am leaving for customers to find appropiate frames.

Hence I bought some frames but they seamed so plain and standard as I did not had budget to buy expensive styish frames. So I decided to add my own flayer of style to those plain frames. So I ended up painting them.

Once I painted them I wanted the paint to stick and not scratch as eaily so, I ended up buying a coating material to make the paint morescratch resistant. I chose satin over gloss as I still wanted the paint to show without that artifical shiny look.

All this seams so simple in writing. But first when I painted the frame I had to wait for paint to dry. Some of them needed two coat so waited twice. Then I applied to protection coat and waited for it to dry. Then I had to figure out the picture that will best go with the frame color and design and finaly had to find the right glass and the back to fit the frame.

The other issue is that I have been doing all this work in a storage unit so I clean and remove the dust and I turn around and it is dusty again. So for now I have given up. I will clean them as I sell them so that I donot have o clean them again and again and yet my customers can get dust free product. Oh well LOL.

So here I am uploading some samples. See more detail on :

My Kitchen, dinning room and bar   Leave a comment

When I was taking these pictures I only meant to practice my still life photography skills. It was only later when I looked at these pictures on bigger screen and realized that I have created some pieces of artistic pictures. Second thought was that they are perfect for kitchen, dinning area, bar, even commercial bars and restaurants.

When choosing art work or pictures we know what we like when we see it but the question is if it will suite and go with rest of the colors and stuff we have in a room. Should we get dark or bright colors or neutral or even just black and white?

I usually find it appealing if the walls are neutral colors but art work and other décor is bright or dark colors and if walls are bright or dark colors then art work that is more light in color. Black and white tends to go with every color scheme as long as not every thing is black and white or neutral in colors.

I think I will like to experiment with colors in my next project with neutral wall paint like white, beige or even gray and more brighter pictures and other decor. But I will pick one color for each side of the room and every thing I put on that wall will be same color may be different shades. Neutral furniture, same curtains all over if the room is more formal but for casual space like entertainment center same design of curtains but differenr color matching to the other décor on that side of the room. I think it will give the room a hip look without going too crazy.

Anyway, if you want to take a look on more of these pictures check my fcebook page http://on.fb.me/dXISNQ; where I am also running a sweep stake.
