i am a self-defined Nuyorican creative (that is a Puerto Rican who is from both the isles of Manhattan, NYC and the Caribbean). I share daily in the joy of education and live in a cute port town in New York, in a 'teensy-weensy' apartment with my two dogs and canary named Valentino. Check out my Etsy shop for purchasable pieces. Please do not reproduce imagery off of this site without explicit credit and no derivatives may be made of my original imagery- Thank You.

Unsellable/Giveable  Objects...

Sometimes I learn a new technique such as this beading one, and I simply can't bring myself to give or sell any of it away. Sometimes that happens because of the time, difficulty or the aesthetic of the final result. However, I wish I could part with these and I keep saying - I'll make more and then I'll be able to sell them - but this beading technique yields different and unique results each time!!! If anyone has an idea on how creatives can part with their work more easily please share!!!!!







I have learned how to sell/giveaway certain art more easily ...so be sure the Art Giveaway (three posts back) is going really well, be sure to leave your 'Rainbird' comment to be considered to win a signed print of collage art by ME!!!

Lovely pieces!

I have the same trouble parting with some of my paintings - I become so attached and don't want to let them out of my possession, but eventually the passage of time allows me to let go, especially when I create another work I'm especially pleased with.
