Frocks Galore

I finally got around to posting these scans on flickr, but forgot to put them here! These paintings (and the ones below) were done for a little art show that I had in August at Frank James (read about the show/see photos here!). I waited such a long time to post the scans of the paintings because I wanted to make prints and have everything up at the same time, but here we are, months later, and I still don’t have any prints! I have a printer, ink, paper, plastic sleeves, cardboard mailers… everything you need to sell prints! The problem is that I am still battling with my printer to get it in working condition. I don’t want to get into it, but I need to dedicate another few hours to figuring it out and I don’t want to because dealing with electronics makes me want to die. So, take a peek at the paintings now, and cross your fingers that there will be prints later!

I’m also planning on listing the originals on etsy, sometime soon. They’re all framed, in thrifted frames painted white, some of which need a little touching up before they can be ready to go out into the world. I’m actually not sure if I should take them out of their frames to sell or not… well, I’ll think about that. If you are interested in purchasing any of them, let me know! They are $70 each, and I am totally willing to part with them before putting them up on etsy. Just shoot me a comment and we’ll talk about it! I’m also interested in doing custom frock paintings, as long as you have a few photos of the item with enough detail! Here’s what they look like framed (you can also go here to see photos of everything at the show):

    these are just so lovely. I saw them via an RT frm another vintage seller on twitter when you posted them on flickr but it’s great to see them all together here. I am looking forward to the prints and greatly considering an original…! perhaps not til after the holidays… (;
