uh oh ..... not sure if i did 23 or not!!

so.... who is up to date on my artness? art every day ...posting a finished piece on flickr AND blogging about it .... every day for 22 in a row now ..... so ..... here's the thing ...i didn't FINISH a fresh collage today .... but i did have a good artsy day ..... and i DID finish something ...... so then the question, i suppose....is .....does it count ..... you decide .....

.... i spent the day at allison's ... i was helping her sort out what she needed to do for an art fair this weekend ... two days .... so we set up her easy up tent and put out tables and got a big ole plan going ......lots of brainstorming and ideas and this and that..... all good ..... and then , she pulled up an image i had sent her and we messed with it on her computer and printed it out on groovy good paper...... and there you have my first limited edition prints ...... i'm figuring them out for when i am doing events on two consecutive weekends at the end of this month ..... instead of just having big ole' canvases that cost more than some people can spend, prints seem like an affordable alternative, and actually , a great gift ....oh, wait, in fact, such a good gift that i'm giving the first one (numbered 1/50) to a pal having a birthday tomorrow ......
i persomalized it.....it says home sweet home and her family name ....... so..... in an art fair situation, someone can buy it and i'll put a name on there .... is that good? i hope it works? ....my plan is to get two or three more home collages that are suitable for prints and personalization ...... that way someone shopping my booth would have a choice of prints ..... so .... that was a lot of work today ....not exactly a finished collage though...... so 23? or game's over ?

I am saying #23 it is -- or really #23 through #73!!
I think it is a great idea - was just at an artfair and was really looking at some prints as a much better choice for me!
So since you developed an ART idea to be used by you at the next art fair which was what your challenge was about getting lots done for the art fair I say it counts -- and being firts commenter I think I win!
