Persisting with anecdotal bliss sounds pretty amazing, as does persisting with any type of bliss, actually. Usually I have no idea who the people in my vintage photos are, but this photo was in an album with the names Prince Lynar and Aimée written above the photo. I wanted to include that piece of information so it's now a part of the backside of this box.
These mixed media pieces come so easily I'm almost worried I'm doing something wrong. It's important to me to not overdo things and accidentally coat my assemblages with junk (and it's not because I don't have assemblage-y junk at hand, I do, trust me) just because that's the type of assemblage art I'm used to seeing. I try to live by the rule less is more, even if just through my art...
The fact that there's not an awful lot of stuff in my boxes sort of leads to the issue of pricing (not that I think materials are what you're paying for when you pay for art). I'm used to pricing books, not really art, and I feel I may be undercutting with my current prices. Browsing Etsy's assemblage/collage art tells very little about what's reasonable, so any input is much appreciated. I'd like to keep my art creations affordable, but I may still need to up the prices a bit. For now things are as they are, so if you've fallen in love with an assemblage or two, now is a very good time to go and buy it.
