"Family is Forever" - The Shiloh Eagle Family, Framed

 

I know, it's been a while since I posted.  There's been some major changes occurring with a few of my sales outlets this summer, and some of them not so pleasant.  My best sales location decided to cut the money to the artist and encourage us to lower royalties even further, meaning we'd almost be giving away our work for free.  Of course I didn't go along with that request - after all, as much as I love what I do, this is not a hobby and I have a family to support.  Their announcement, unfortunately, made sales overall drastically decline.  I don't believe they realized that creating such negativity with the artisans could affect their business so badly.  But it has. 

 

That being said, I decided to enter into a partnership with another sales outlet for my custom invitations (which I don't show here on this site, as this site is focused on my art).  Invitations are something I like to design here and there - the majority of my time is focused on my art.  But invitation sales help pay the bills while I continue to struggle to bring my art sales up to the level they need to be.  Entering into this agreement created a lot of background work to be done...lots of detailed work including gathering and supplying images and creating spreadsheets.  What I call "administrative crap" which I absolutely hate, but it had to be done in order to make the deal work.  

 

In addition, I have acquired a new sales outlet for my up close and personal work, mostly of animals.  Visit goBigly.com to see the unique and fun products you can now get with your favorite animals, from dogs to wildlife.  Also, my main art sales outlet, which is via Fine Art America, is now increasing our product offerings as well.  So in addition to the open edition fine art prints, we now have iPhone 4 and 5 cases, with more products coming soon.  Check out your favorites here.  Click on an image and then click on a phone case.  It's easy to position the image exactly as you want it on the cases.  Simply grab the image on the case with your mouse and move it around.  Or make it bigger or smaller using the slider bar on the right.  One of my absolute faves is this image:

I shot this Tiger recently, along with lions and a whole other host of furry and feathered creatures which you'll see being added to my Birds and Animals category.  Be sure to follow my business page on Facebook, where you can see all the new art as soon as it's released!  Make sure to add my page to your interests lists on Facebook so you can actually see the posts.  

 

What do you think of the eagles pictured above?  It's my art titled "Family is Forever", featuring the eagle family from Shiloh, TN, which I photographed all spring this year.  I ordered a large print on canvas and framed it in an antique gold wood frame which was my fathers, and has been sitting in a closet with nothing in it for probably 30 years.  I feel it has been brought to life now with the picture of the eagle family, and it makes a wonderful addition to my office wall. :)

 

As always, thanks for stopping by, and stay tuned, because there's a lot more animal art coming soon!

I am a photographic artist living in Tennessee, and I love to spend my days in nature capturing life's most serene and peaceful moments, whether it be in landscapes, watching birds and wildlife, or simply enjoying the beauty of a simple flower. I hope you enjoy my work, and that it will bring a moment of serenity into your day. --Jai Johnson
