Quiet Storm Inspo

"Whatever your turning point, it will help you look at your life in a different light"  Oprah


I took the "quiet storm" painting and made a print, added some inspo words and glued it to a prefinished block  for a nice block display.  I also added some collage elements on top of the print to enhance it.  This is just some of the little stuff I see other artist do on Etsy to make an affordable art piece.

Personally, I like the original better, but my girls really like these.  Sometimes they have a better handle of what appeals to the younger age groups (not that I'm old or anything!)

Also, there's a very nice giveaway over at my friend's blog, Rona Gregory Art .  Stop by for a chance to win her first blog giveaway!

I love all the unexpected pops of color in your paintings. The print on the block turned out great and I really like how you added the quote!

what a wonderful idea, diana. i too love originals the best, but i think appealing to all budgets is really where artists can find a way of selling more art.
lovely!!

This is such a good idea! I know what you mean about the originals, but using the block for the print + adding a few "original" elements does give the feel of original plus being affordable - and as Kelly said, another market to perhaps sell to!
