I'm thrilled to once again have been chosen by a jury to offer my artwork at the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts at the Pageant of the Masters for the summer. This is a huge honor in such a very prestigious, much sought-after show.
“One of the nation’s oldest and most highly acclaimed juried fine art shows, the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts has offered a breathtaking showcase for artists and art lovers for 90 years.”
I will be in space #4 and have new artwork, including all 78 Tarot images, available as fine art prints in sizes from 4x6, 8x10, 12x18, 16x20, 24x36, 30x40, and 40x60 inches.
Most of the time I will be there 7 days a week, from July 5th to September 2nd, from 4 pm on Mon-Thurs and 10 am at Fri-Sun until 8:30 pm (although the show closes at 11:30 pm I rarely stay that late). If you make a purchase from me I can give you some complimentary tickets to the art show or rebate you the price of your ticket. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to plan ahead and have tickets waiting at Will Call. I would love to see you :)
This year I have a larger gallery space in the exact spot I requested! Here's me painting it the dark neutral gray of my dreams :) Since I will be there pretty much 7 days a week for all of July and August I want it to feel like a home away from home.
Sadly, I do not have my Tarot Card decks just yet. They are being printed at a factory that was shut down due to the pandemic so there is a substantial waiting list to book time on their massive printing machines. This factory offers the high-quality, heavyweight cards that I want so it's worth the wait. I am in regular contact with them though and am ready to go when they call. In the meantime please sign up for my newsletter on my website to be updated when I have news about the Kickstarter campaign.
I will be ordering a limited run of 1000 Tarot decks before I offer them on Kickstarter. I've seen too many Kickstarter campaigns go poorly when the final product is not available even a year after the finish of the campaign. I won't do that to people - it's just not right. That means that I will be paying for the entirety of the 1000 decks myself which is, of course, a huge financial burden. So if you have any inclination at all to own, or give as a gift, a high-quality, limited edition, fine art print of any of the 79 cards I sure would appreciate your purchase. The prints are as small as size 4x6 inches and are only $40. I'm also offering a new low flat rate of $5 for shipping anywhere in the continental US.
I proudly do all of my fine art printing myself with my Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-4100 and 1000 archival pigment ink printers on Canson Infinity fine art papers from historically significant paper mills in France and England.
Here's to a really great summer of 2022!!!
