Some of you who follow my other blog, Diary of a Person Being Human, or who follow me on Instagram @frieda_mouse, will know that I have been turning my attentions to transforming some of my photographic images into digital paintings. I’ve been having so much fun with it, that I have already created an ample body of work that I would like to try to sell, if that’s at all a worthwhile idea. But, in a world where everyone wants to self-promote and make money, but nobody wants to spend it, I might be a little hard pressed to do so. The problem is, photographic art has become too mainstream, so nobody knows where to look anymore. Nor is it particularly novel below a certain age and maturity, especially when the lure of visual data is everywhere these days. It is not a good time to be an artist, at all, though I’m sure some may disagree.
Anyway, here are a few samples of my recent efforts. I have many more, but perhaps I’ll reserve those for another post. If you should be interested in purchasing prints, or if you’d like me to convert a photographic image into a painting, you can contact me via the comments, or email me directly at email@example.com.
