I honestly wonder (and seriously doubt) if there has ever been another time in human history when it was so accessible, so possible to re-invent oneself or one's business/expression. What an amazing, crazy time we live in. I'm so grateful I have created the kind of life in which I get to do that.
I must thank my husband, Raymond, but there won't be enough right words to do the job. We both made a choice when we moved to Seattle to pursue our art first, and have jobs that support that. Every now and then when we feel like there isn't enough, we remember that we chose this. I could go get some high-paying, full-time corporate gig but I know my art would shrivel. It's hard enough squeezing it in now. But I have, and that is the point of this rambly blog: karenussery.com is open for bidness!
The site layout is designed to work for both my art consultants and designers who need to be able to skim quickly and find a particular color or pattern. But it's also designed for those who have the time to really soak each image in. If you click on a photo, you can see its details, and use the "next" button to keep scrolling from there.
And art buying has been a little sickly lately. I have made what adjustments I can to prices, and also have three items for sale on my site for less than $100 each: An 8x8 or 8x10 canvas image of your choice for just $99, and a 16x16 or 16x20 paper print for $95. Also, the 2011 wall calendar is at the printers and ready for pre-orders for just $19.95 each. (All have additional shipping.)
The point is: thank you for all your support. I appreciate Raymond and my family, my friends, my new friends at Artist Trust, and you. Here we go!
