Live, Laugh, Love (on a wing and a prayer)

Well, my recovery from my illness took longer than I thought, and I missed posting last week. I’m sorry for that. Although while I was recuperating, I managed to finish this project which was flying around in my brain and wouldn’t just float away.

This project is the first one I’ve done with no particular person to give it to, so I’m going to put it up for sale. I don’t have an online store yet, so if you are interested please email me jossetteholland@gmail.com.

Wing close-up

 Please forgive my photography skills, as I know they are lacking! This is a close-up of the piece. This piece took approximately 30 hours to make and I’ve invested about $35 in materials. It is an 11X 14 canvas attached to a wooden frame. I painted the background and sculpted the wings and letters out of polymer clay.

This is an original one of a kind piece of sculptured mixed media art, and because of that I’m asking $100. I have been struggling over what to value my work at, and more importantly at what price someone else would value my work. I tend to devalue myself and therefore my work, but yet I always encourage others to value themselves and their work at a much higher price; therefore, I’ve been trying to force myself to take my own advice and show pride in my work by not devaluing it. 

My creative inspiration tidbit for you this week is to value yourself and value your work like you would value others you admire. It is important to believe in yourself because other people do, and if you don’t you are discounting the love and encouragement given to you. Which is something I’m sure you and I would never intentionally want to do.
