Happy Summer! I am so excited to share with you what is new this summer in the studio!
Want to know what's new? First of all ~ new logo? What do you think?
Palette Bangles~ a line of bracelets made from my old painting palettes. 100% of profits go straight to Palette with A Purpose program. This quarter I am giving all money to kids here in the middle Tennessee area aging out of foster care. What kinds of things do they need, you ask? Everything! Think: gas cards, food cars, backpacks (and other college supplies), laptops, clothes, etc. I can't wait to see how many kids I am able to help out. Let me know if you want to help too! I will be sharing more about these on my social media platforms and doing some Flash sales ~ so stay tuned!
Block Art ~ I am taking some of my popular art prints and mounting them on to wooden blocks. These pieces are versatile as they require no "wall space" and can sit on desks, shelves and tables. Perfectly priced at $25 and under so they make a nice gift too! These are available at Fireflies, C'est Moi and at my studio. Just message me through my Kirsten Reed Art Facebook page.
I am also working on several commission projects for clients. These are always my most challenging and most rewarding pieces! I am not going to lie, I get full of doubt every single time. "What if they don't like it?" kind of thoughts try to keep me from bringing my best to the canvas, but I always conquer those fears! I will be taking orders for commissions for Christmas up through October 1. Let me know if you have a special gift in mind for someone so we can work together! Here are a few recent commissions I did:
I am also preparing for my whirlwind of fall shows kicking off in August with the Nashville Tomato Arts Festival (a true favorite of mine)! I am looking to add an event in September or early October, so this schedule is tentative.
I hope to see you at one or all of these events!
