I took the last trip yesterday to pick up the remaining prints from the Sooke Fine Arts Show Gift Shop. There were 3 remaining unframed prints (these being inside a flip-through bin). The others had been displayed.
The remaining unframed prints are:
- Kwaigiutl Ancestor
- Raven Eagle Shield
After tabulating the overall print costs and revenues, I've broken even. But I knew this going in this testing of a print option for the Journeying With The Totems series, because of the gift shop's price limit. I could have made a few dollars if all the unframed prints had sold. But so long as i could break even, it was better to get the series into more homes. The fact that all the canvas prints did sell is an indication that they may be the best print option, as they are as close as you can get to the look of the originals.
I've added a page for the print options. I've added the image of the Blue Totems painting as I will be getting a studio photo taken of it once I receive the funds from the painting sales. If anyone is interested in a print of one of the other paintings in the series, indicate which one on the form on that page. Note: There are 2 paintings that I won't be able to do a print of: 'Bear Pole Totem' and 'Beaver Totem With Moss'. I wasn't able to get proper jpegs of adequate resolution before they were sent to their new homes.
