I'm very proud of myself - I managed to avoid spending $800 yesterday. I've been poking around trying to find a bit or art that's 18"x36" (an odd dimension at best) and I ran across the Michael Godard gallery again. There are a couple of his works that I really want and in a fit of eBay craziness yesterday, I almost bid on a few. But I came to my senses and missed it by inches by reminding myself that buying a house requires cash and spending it on art is not a good way to have any on hand. You'd think that wouldn't be so hard to remember.

Anyway. While poking around I finally found the surrealist that I loved in Vegas: Vladimir Kush. Fantastic art, horrible website.

Yeah, so since my taste in art is expensive and there's nothing that will fit the dimensions I need (I have to hide the breaker box that's a horrible gaping hole in the wall), I'm making my own thing. I found some awesome paper and a couple of Chinese coins and I'm going to do some creative framing. If it turns out well, I'll post before and after photos.

Vladimir Kush is one of my favourite artists; I also saw his exhibit in Vegas. I totally want his coffee table book, but can't bring myself to spend $100 on it. *sigh* I could stare at his pieces for *hours*.

Maybe you could get it for free if you'd offer to redo his website. They need some serious help over there!

Dang it, did I just betray my complete and utter cluelessness when it comes to how much web services cost? Yeah, well. Work out a thing where you get an original out of the deal. :)

Great idea! I'm looking forward to seeing it.

Making your own stuff is fun...but unless it's a scrap book...it never seems to come out the way i want it to for me. Paint and I are not friend...and frankly neither are drawing and I.

But I digress...what I wanted to post in brief is this:

comission college and/or high school artists. I did it, it may cost a little extra in time, at first...but it can be great fun.

Yeah, you have wonderful art. But I was on a serious time crunch. So maybe next time. :)
