It all started when…
Emily Wood Facebook messaged me – “Interested in donating to the UALR 6×6 event?” – or something like that.
All pieces entered are 6×6 inches – hence the “6×6” title. I decided that prints would be the best way to go, so I tore some paper and mixed some ink (pewter, red, and white). I did test prints first to make sure the cropped images were strong compositions.
This was a happy accident from rolling out the red ink.
Once everything was printed, I stopped by Hobby Lobby on the way home from work the next day and got the pieces matted – which felt like a complete rip off at $5 per mat! They didn’t even let me keep the matboard scraps they cut from. Yikes was I mad about that.
“The Lady and the Musician”
“Dinner Guests” (which is its actual size)
I put the Paper Opera stamp on the back and signed the print.
M and I went to the UALR 6×6 event and had a nice time! It was a silent auction – where all of the pieces are placed on the tables and people walk around and bid on them.
I was happy because all of my pieces got bids.
At the end of the event, there were speeches and thank you’s and lots of clapping.
