Big Chicken Fine Art Prints now available!

See my Journal entry on Red Bubble for details: http://www.redbubble.com/people/cschnack/journal/9663660-large-fine-art-prints-big-chicken-paintings-giclees

My two most popular, large chicken paintings, are now available as fine art prints.  I had them professionally scanned on a room-sized scanner especially for fine art use.  (Don’t worry, the images in my journal are just small low res snapshots.  I don’t intend to post the extremely large high resolution versions from the scan, on the internet. And no, the prints won’t have my name across their middles.)  My husband and I have enjoyed having the big chickens brighten up our dining area. They make a great impact!

New Paintings!

Over Thanksgiving weekend I started and finished three paintings.  It was beautiful outside so I painted on the patio.

Extension Cord
Acrylic on canvas
20 x 20 in.
Sale price $400 until end of 2012

Monster in a Tutu
Acrylic on canvas
20 x 20 in.
Sale price $400 until end of 2012

Yellow Monster
Acrylic on canvas
6 x 6 x 1.5 (deep) inches
Sale price $75 through end of 2012

None of these was planned; they are all spontaneously done. I just start by grabbing colors that appeal to me at that moment, whatever brush appeals, and make shapes. Then a life form emerges and I add details, shading, etc.  All are available as cards and prints on my Red Bubble page, and the originals will be added to my Paintings inventory and price list there, too.

 

Most of my work is still on sale, prices good through Dec. 31, 2012.  After that, prices go back up.

Cardinal, the cover image for one of my calendars.
(No, the prints don’t have a big copyright notice across them, that’s just for blogging!)

Red Bubble, the Print on Demand site I have some of my art on, is offering a 15% off sale on Calendars until Nov. 17, 2012.

There is a coupon code in the Journal that you need to use, to get the discount.  The Journal entry also has links to all my calendars.  I have three made, and can easily make CUSTOM calendars!  I just need to know which images, on which months, and I can make it for you.

BE SURE TO SET THE STARTING MONTH WHEN YOU ORDER!  Buyers have that option.  Otherwise the default seems to be to Jan of that year, and I don’t know if it now would default to Jan 2013…so be sure you remember to set the starting month when you order!

The calendars are large and on nice heavy paper. Each print, (13 incl. the cover), is separate and can be framed after the calendar is used up.

Young Turkey

Young Turkey
Acrylic on canvas panel
5 x 7 inches
$75, unframed

Painted Young Turkey today.  Probably won’t eat any turkey this Thanksgiving!  Canvas panels are rigid and about 1/8 in. thick. They are easy to pop in a frame, and if purchased unframed, very inexpensive to ship.  (Shipping’s extra.)  Not one to plan ahead for the holidays, and most of my art is pretty spontaneous and on-the-spot anyway, so sorry this was not really done in time to promote the image as products for Thanksgiving, LOL!  Just in time to make you feel guilty about eating turkey, though.

Available as prints and cards on my Red Bubble site: http://www.redbubble.com/people/cschnack/works/9595026-young-turkey

Purple Coffee Drinking Chicken

Purple Coffee Drinking Chicken
Acrylic on canvas
20 x 20 in.
Reg. price $700
Sale price, good thru Dec. 31, 2012, $400

Acrylic palette knife painting, quick technique.  I have a close crop version of just the head on my Red Bubble site, for prints.  This was somewhat of an experimental exercise to loosen up after having done a large and very detailed painting recently.  I like using palette knives on large scale work anyway, and have several big chicken paintings done this way over the last year or two.  It’s fun to just spontaneous grab the color that appeals, like a kid grabbing crayons.
