Today I want to talk about a few different considerations that artists have if they want to sell their art and have it last.
Lately I have been talking to Erin from Artis Pura about stretched canvases that we buy from art supply stores and where they are mass produced, the materials that go into the frame, it's construction and the grade of canvas.
I had a look at Erin's wall of shame where there were frames that were less than 6 months old that were warped and unable to be restrectched. There were acid spots that went through paper, matt board and foam core backing that were only a few years old. So many examples of shoddy manufacturing and framing practices that it made my toes curl.
So here's some tips for those of you that:

Today I released two video's on my Youtube channel: Missladypetal Creations
The first is my latest vlog which you can find here:
I'm chatting about what my life has been like in the last couple of months. Phew glad it's all over at the moment really but some exciting possibilities coming up.
And secondly and what has taken me most of the day to finish is my latest process video:
I had a lot of fun with this one and got to play around with some more brave girl headwear. What you can't see here is the beautiful shimmering wink of stella pen I used randomly in her hair and for her crown. I'm just loving her innocent face and the cornelli work dress i designed for her.

Last week I recorded an interview with Grant and Ali from Fringe Art & Culture.
We discussed my community engagement piece, 'Eyes in a Blanket' and also some feedback from my first art exhitibiton 'Environmental Elements'.
Part 1 finishes on some of my art therapy workshops that I conduct around Logan.
Sit down with a cuppa and listen to some of my thoughts and answers to questions about my art and what i think about art in the community.
Here is the link to part 1 of the interview: Part 1
Here is the link to part 2 of the interview: Part 2
As promised Part 2 is here and features a reading of an excerpt by Alaskan writer Regi McClain, read by Sandy Sharma as well as our continued chat with Peta.
