The Good News According To Kirk – An All New Watercolor + FRABJOUS Day

Hello again art lovers.

I hope all is well in your worlds.

I’ve been going non-stop.  I rephotographed many of my older works on paper, have been replacing jpegs on ckirkart.com with higher-quality images, and have given my site a bit of a facelift. The website is a work in progress.  There’s quite a few pieces I’d like to add to the site.  Anyway,  I completed a few more “Siren” pastel studies and plotted out many more for future rendering, but I won’t be posting any the new “Siren” pastel studies today.

You see, after a month or so of working with monochrome pastels, I had to get a little color in my life and I painted a watercolor portrait of sorts.  Working with the fluid medium took much longer and was much more difficult than blending pastels with my fingers.  It had been so long since I played with watercolor, that I had to get reacquainted with the medium.  I’m not going to lie, I became discouraged early on during the making of the piece.  I used to be a watercolor wizard, and I began to think that maybe I had lost my touch.  It turns out patience was all that was needed.

In other news, I’ve been playing around with the concept of having more frequent, special sales.  You know, like offering 1 piece at a special price for only 1 day each week.  The words “FRABJOUS DAY” from Lewis Carroll’s  story “Through The Looking Glass” pop’d in my head, so I decided I should go ahead with the idea.  So, Friday of each week, until I get bored, will be “FRABJOUS DAY” and I will offer 1 piece at a special price for 24 hours

So, keep an eye out.  This week, Friday the 24, I will be posting the piece below at a special price for 24 hours.
