Painting for POD

Being in the marketing state of mind for the New Year, Michael and I have been doing some research on POD or, Print on Demand. I created this painting which leans towards generic equine to have a wider appeal to horse enthusiasts/collectors. The original size is 30"x40" but it can be enlarged up to 25%. (40"x50" approx.) The edition will be open which reduces the price by an estimate of 30-40% depending on size. Therefore, the original size of 30"x40" in a limited edition giclee is $400. and with this new open edition will be $250. This is our first experiment with an open edition POD service. I failed to mention that these prices are for stretched canvas which means prints on photo paper or other substrates will not only be available but even less expensive.

Tomorrow morning I leave my comfort zone to do an interview on WOCA 1370AM News Talk Radio along with Dick Hancock, Executive Director of the Florida Thoroughbred Breeders' and Owners' Association. We'll be discussing the horse racing art exhibit that Michael and Renee Downs have been working so hard to organize. It will be hosted by the FTBOA in their beautiful light-filled gallery upstairs. More on the details to come.
