Really liking Vibrance and the recent additions to your series.   These are wonderful abstracts..  ....Send photos of them to interior design studios...just a thought .....Good luck with them!

 :thankyou: mea  :thankyou: njnjgirl.

I'll think on the interior designer thing...

Although, I would probably not send photos, just my business card which is emblazened with my website URL. We live in a digital world - I don't understand why people still insist on hard copy stuff. Especially stuff like this - I will be looking at their websites to see whether I should contact them. And the sites will probably give me an email address...

the problem is, it is easy to hit the delete button or just ignore the email, in person that is a lot more difficult

 :thankyou: Danielle. I know what you mean - I initially was just numbering them, but Nolan said they need names if I intend to sell.

Nolan, I didn't mean making the initial contact by email, I was going to do mailout (physical) - at least then they have a business card with a URL on hand initially... I know, you can just throw that in the bin too, but eventually I might have to do the in person thing I guess. Now that I'm back to work, that will mean weekends though and doing something I detest.

Oi B'Man. . . .if I lived in your part of the world, I'd be out there flogging your stuff like crazy!!! Cold calls. . .no problem. . been there, done that. . for years!
It's like Nolan says, once you have done two or three there's nothing to it. . . . just imagine the dude across the desk or whatever sitting there starkers. . . . . sort of levels the playing field (so to speak)! Worked for me!!! :2funny: :2funny:

Congrats on the new job. . . .I think I forgot to say that!!!!!!!
I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!

Hi everyone,

Been a bit off with the painting of late. The short term contract ended and I am back looking for work again. At least I have my first in person formal interview on Thursday next week! Eight months it has taken. It'll be doing the stuff I did for ten years (Systems Analysis) before swapping over to the developer role.

Anyway, enough of that, here is my latest in "The Nature Series" this on is ##56 - My Betta Splendens" it is an Acrylics on 508 x 762mm Stretched Canvas.

For those who are not familiar with fishkeeping, a Betta Splendens goes by the common name of "Siamese Fighting Fish." It is the combination of a made up background and a reference photo of my little fishie.

Let me know what you think.

Batman,

I mentioned just the other day that I missed you.  Good to see you posting again.

I really like this fish painting.  It's very appealing.

Good luck with the interview.

Nice to see you back again, Imbatman, we missed you.

We have Siamese Beta fish here but, they seem to be more
 fluorescent and leaning toward the purple hue.  I have nearer
seen one similar to the one in your painting. They definitely need
to be isolated, most pet store sell them in very small bowls (single)

Yours is probably very happy as it has a huge/whole tank to its self.

Good luck on your interview!!  You know what they say here " Break a Leg".
