A Multifaceted Approach - A Christmas Catalogue

Jeanne Chisholm of Chisholm Gallery introduced me to a new concept and assisted me in putting together a Christmas E-Blast. This is a brand new term for me! An e-blast consists of a PDF presentation that is attached to an email and sent by the gallery to potential collectors. The PDF presentation serves as a high quality photographic respresentation of the paintings - much like a brochure. I called mine A Multifaceted Approach as it contains an eclectic assortment of paintings in a variety of sizes as you can see here. Of course, Santa on his wild purple and golden zebra was on the cover! I wish I could have attached the actual PDF file but could not do that. Instead, I will show you individually each piece in the Christmas E-Blast presentation:

 Camel Rider 11x14
 Cheetahs 24x18
 Deyrolle Interior, Paris 20x16

Great Dane 16x12

 Hounds, 12x9

 Two Horses, 20x16

 T'ang Horse, 18x24

 Islay Wild Goat, 16x12

Trying to be Flexible in Uncertain Times 24x18

What fun this was! I find I am recently learning alot about the business of art. I never knew it was so complex! If anyone is interested in purchasing one of theses paintings, please contact Jeanne Chisholm at info@chisholmgallery.com
By the way, if you would like to see the actual e-blast, just send me an email and I will forward the PDF file to you by email. It is nicely printable as well!
