Art you can Afford for the Holidays! Last hour on these auctions!


(Updated Thursday morning 12/20/07)

OK, hold on...this is the last HOUR you all have to bid on these wonderful, intelligent works of art. Going, Going...Gone time!

Nuff said...so get busy!

I can still get them to you in time for Christmas if you need them to be somewhere inside the USA. Come on People, help an artist out and buy some art today!


Your Mission if you choose to accept it....is bid on my artworks (Umm, er...now would be good) and then sit back and smile knowingly to yourself...yes, that'll do it...you'll sit back and be so proud of yourself for being a capitalist consumer with a soul and conscience, you'll even be able to eat that extra slice of pie and not worry about your thighs...you'll be in the art with Soul Zone...calories don't count here!

Check it out!

Have a great day, even if you don't bid on my brilliant work, really I mean it... have a nice day.

(I'm asking Santa for some modesty, it's the only thing I don't have too much of).

This part of the post is from Monday 12/17/07:

Just one quote today friends, it's a busy time for everyone...and I need to rant a bit...just FYI)

***


I think that what we're seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonance's within our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.
Joseph Campbell (1904 - 1987)
***

Please help keep living artists alive by buying art that resonates with you. If it's not my work...well, OK fine...*lip curl* but no, OK really...go find a real, live human (any where in the world) and buy some art from that living artist today. The work of art you buy today, could save two lives/souls...yours and the artists. Think about it.

There are links to amazing talented people on my side bar...blog roll whatever it's called. Honestly if it ain't my work that floats your boat, (don't leave til you at least give me a chance to see first!) then find some one who is a living creative soul and buy something that is more talisman/magic than a "gift" or art. Art is about soul, and I truly believe that every real artist, out there in the world, is looking to create, form and build...resonance. My work is about resonance, and I only figured that out recently while being interviewed for an newspaper interview about a show opening. She [the reporter] asked me what I was trying to express with my work to the viewer. Immediately I said, "resonance". "What does that mean?" She asked.

*internal sidebar aka as the Oh Shit! factor*

I tell you it's at moments like these that are small and unimportant (seemingly), that my most profound truths have been reviled. I scratched my head, and thought about it...well, yeah so what the hell did that mean?

It means I am talking to you, the viewer (taps microphone, is this thing on?).

*yes I said that out loud, it didn't get printed, hehe*


I am asking questions, showing my version of answers sometimes, and sometimes I am opening a door for you. I mean, when I created it [the art] it was about finding and opening that door for myself...now it's your turn....wanna take a spin?

A lot of people want and need to know what was the muse, or inspiration.

For just me I can usually say with a straight face...it was create or destroy something and soon, or else. Most of the time I am not thinking when I am working...except to solve problems and be a director of sorts. Once I feel the painting out, I go for it and figure out the 'what' of it later.

May I ask...What do you see?

There is an artist in the world some where right now that can make you want to know, make you want to open every door, every day... just in case...in your own life. There is a work of art that if you see and feel it and can own it, it will change your world. Simple. Fact. Art is. Magic.

That's way more fun than almost any other type of gift you can buy...with paper (not so much paper anymore) money.

So...just a random OCD thoughts for this morning, from me...

that ordinary crazy lady down the street....

who paints and creates

her own world every day...

wait for it....wait for it...

double back flip off the soapbox.

Ta-Da!

See some of my art [doors/talismans] on auction and closing soon below.



*I am wearing a old Santa Hat today for going out in the world, and to keep my ears warm, I only get to wear my Santa Hat once a year!*


Just because I am going shopping today, I wear the hat, see....it's because I hate shopping, and this time of year makes my skin crawl with the hoards of people, bad parking and grouchy sales staff. So I wear the hat as a defense mechanism. People smile at me first. I remind them of the silliness of this whole thing, I know exactly what I need help with and I say please and thank you. *side note* If you are ever wearing a Santa hat while shopping in an attempt to keep yourself from wanting to knock people down in the mall....you must also be pleasant and have good manners...it's kinda like rule number one of Santa Hat wearing. Wouldn't want any first timers to go out and make their heads explode accidentally from not knowing the rules. Whew...glad I remembered that tid-bit.

*wicked grins*

Every move I make, has meaning. I am art.

Hahahahaha!

OK, now out into the snow and pick up the very last things on the list...and I did pack my handy timer, to keep things moving along.

Happy day to you!

As long as it doesn't make my ta-tas fall off or anything! :D

I am going to look at people wearing Santa hats so differently from now on!

BlueJude said...

Funny, interesting and WONDERFUL as ususal! Love the Santa Hat blurb! Holiday hugs BK!

San said...

Ms. McRanty/Santy,

So glad I came back to read your RAVE. Completely agree. I "get" the resonance thing. I "get" the door thing too. And I totally "get" that people should be buying art instead of mass-produced cornball junk that'll wind up in the circular file before next Christmas.

Glad to see you're getting some auction action. Here's hoping for an eleventh hour bidding frenzy!

When you have a few minutes, you might enjoy my 2 cents' peace post. Tis the soapbox season.

Wow, Heatehr, when you post you really post! :) Best of luck with the sales and have a great Christmas!

Camplin said...

I bet you still have a lot of back stock of art work as well as those you sold, like me. I can't find enough places to store all the work I have, of course, I have not sold as much as you. That is great, you make and sell so much. Good luck on your sale.
