This is a short announcement that felt perfect for today’s Whimsical Wednesdays from The Artist’s Corner post, even though I’m not regularly keeping up with these weekly posts like I used to due to needing time to focus back on my writing.
I’ve decided to make custom commissions available again, for now, on a limited basis.
I’m not sure how many I’ll actually be doing, or for how long, but I’m guessing it will only come in as is perfectly aligned with my timing needs.
So this means I’m open to creating animal companion portraits and creative pieces, although I do have a special place in my heart for animals.
As you can see I can do straight portraits or add a creative or surreal essence to them.
I shared on Instagram, a reflection on my past artwork and received a lot of beautiful and touching comments, including some inquiries. People were especially moved by the animals and more ethereal and cosmic paintings.
I contemplated revisiting this and due to cutting back, or pausing for a short time, on production of pieces for my Etsy shop, I have decided to make this option available again on a limited basis since I am devoting most of my time to writing.
I did accept a commission that will be a unique portrait on wood with crystals for the woman you may remember won one of the auctions for the bunnies and I posted the sweet story about her daughter who had led her to this from the stars. The portrait will be of her angel daughter.
I’m discussing possibilities on another.
I love that they don’t have any time frame, so I am free to work on them as I am able in between my writing and needs for creative flow breaks.
I do love creating unique multi media pieces on large wood rounds, or items like the talisman necklaces, and keepsake chests.
I also have mini silver wood frames I can create pieces in or small canvas boards.
I’m open to larger canvas pieces too, but are more time intensive and costly for shipping – so just something to keep in mind.
I’m just putting it out there and if you feel drawn to have a custom piece of art created for you and it resonates with both of us, please feel free to contact me if you are interested.
I’m not sure if I’ll mention this a lot, but am putting it out there now and I might create custom listings in my shop where you can choose.
Please let me know if you have any ideas and we’ll go from there.
You can visit this page for some more of my work:
I posted some of the animal companion portraits and other past works on my Instagram page, so if you’re interested in seeing some more of those and aren’t on there, I’ll find a way to send you them if needed.
Warm hugs and hellos to you. It’s been quite a while since my last update, as it’s been a time of blossoming shifts and creative changes in fullness. I hope this finds you well and embracing the newness in your own life.
I would like to share the new tranformations taking place, creations underway, new things about to arrive and a special gift of $100 Emerald Bridge shopping spree money at my website in celebration of ringing in new energy, especially with summer just around the corner.
After much reflection, I decided to give my website a complete makeover to reflect the transformations taking place with my work, focuses and energy. The website address remains the same, but the website itself is completely new. I also made the important decision to switch my hosting company away from GoDaddy to a new company, to reflect my disapproval of their CEO’s callous behavior towards animals. It was a big task, but those things that I believe in with my heart, are worth the efforts. I also acquired the supportive help and technical expertise of David Tarin, my Creative Web Designer, to help bring my visions into manifestation. Many thanks to him for his help. I hope you will enjoy perusing the new site: www.taniamarie.com
There are new paintings, new crystal jewelry and an ebook to enjoy and to look forward to this summer. I hope you’ll take a moment to check out the new site and all of the new creations that I have to share.
I have been actively involved with supporting many causes close and dear to my heart and have been donating and helping to support and raise funds for several non-profit animal organizations as well. Yes, it’s been and continues to be some busy and transformative times here at Emerald Bridge, but always filled with creative love and joyful inspiration.
To learn about the organizations I’ve been involved with that may be of interest please visit the Media and Contributions page of my new site. Fundraising inquiries welcomed.
And don’t forget the $100 of Emerald Bridge money towards your shopping experience at www.taniamarie.com. This $100 can be applied to any canvas giclee or original painting purchase, as well as can be used towards commissions of any animal portraits or original paintings of your choice. Offer good until 7/4/2011!
Wishing you all the magic that your heart deserves!
