Prayer Flags

For the past few months, I have had three pieces in a traveling art exhibit called Tripletta, a show of miniature works of art. It is now in its third venue, and at the opening a couple of weeks ago, all three of my pieces sold. This is fantastic news, of course. The only problem, which really is not a problem, is that I now have to replace those pieces, since the exhibit is scheduled to go on to other venues. (To see two of them, go here and here; unfortunately, I never had a chance to photograph the third.)

The reason it's not a problem is that I love to make art. In fact, I've started a series of little monotype/collages that I call Prayer Flags. The only problem is that I'm not sure I like them enough to put them in the exhibit; I keep thinking that maybe I should continue with the Seed Story theme instead.




Prayer Flag I





Prayer Flag II







What do you think? Should I go with these, or try to do more Seed Stories?

  2. Congrats on the sales. I love these prayer flags -- and would use them to give yourself some time to make more in the seed series. Cause I'm thinking the prayer flags will probably sell on opening night too! Beautiful work!

  4. Sharmon, Congrats on the sales!!! May you have many more! I think these flag pieces are lovely, but if I had to choose I like the seed stories the best, but really only you can decide. I am sure which ever way you go, you will be fine. xoxo
