Hi Amy, yeah, I've been rather aloof here on Minted this past year but hope I can get my footing for the next. So many things sideswiped me beyond my control - family tragedies, older pets & their care, house projects, my busy family, you name it. A lot of it ran right into the Challenges and I had no way to put things together other than a few photos and cards. Just seemed like an endless drip of struggle & new reality and routines. It was nice to look at some wonderful artwork here and there as a way to cope. But how are you and things back in Lawrence/KC? Glad to see you're still submitting work and getting some wins, well deserved. Again, Congrats! Thanks for reaching out and staying in touch. My kids are turning 9 tomorrow so it's a birthday bonanza weekend. Catch up with you later - Eric

Hello Amy, a quick thank you for your support and appreciation of my Happy Couple entry in the card contest - much appreciated. I do love your paintings - why not pop one on a tshirt for the current contest? I've put 2 in for that - but generally I don't wear them with designs on, however I would be tempted if there was something more abstract in the shops :)

Hi Amy, thanks for taking a look at my latest entries and the likes as well. You had asked about spray paint for that one work, I hadn't considered how it might look like spray paint and I had to think back to how I developed the work but it's actually a macro photo of lines on a piece of paper with some heavy digital tweaking that ended up looking like a painting so I went with it...I wasn't going to do anything with it at first but as the deadline got closer I decided what the heck. Love your pieces. Hope you get some awesome results :)

Hi again, Amy. Sorry not to get back with you, got swept up with the weekend/family stuff. Are you working on new paintings, any shows coming up? To answer your question...Phase 2 of greeting card copy is just creating graphics for first round copy submissions or creating an entire card with copy/graphics. Hope to nail something down. Have a great day!

Wow, just a day to get it ready?! Crazy! I bet you were glad to have someone there to help it along in a quick turnaround. I probably don't have the desired set up to DIY the paintings - I do have a lightbox and some lights. I'd have to experiment with it but may end up having to use someone in the area to make the shot. So, with as many paintings as you have I bet the cost would add up just to stock your Minted store. I noticed you don't have anything currently for sale on you store....personal choice or too much to aim for? I'm curious how that might work out for me as an outlet...So, yes, the greeting card copy. I've always enjoyed graphic design but feel quite rusty about it these days. The fine art seems to call out to me more but I used to make my own christmas cards and I was initially drawn to Minted because of the card challenges. I've had some success with graphic design but I can't seem to pin down anything yet for the card challenges. I have never tried copy and it was not easy to come up with stuff and then you get in a zone and it's hard to stop. Let's see if any of them catch Minted's eye. I'm trying to work on the Phase 2 design aspect now but not moving as fast as I wanted to with it.

You're right! There is a West Elm on the Plaza, in the old Pottery Barn spot, next to Barnes & Noble. I forgot we saw it over Christmas on one of our treks down there. I was wondering if WE put a spotlight on Minted artwork in the store displays like over a couch or bed or something. Sort of in-store promotion. To clarify...how do you go about preparing your painting when submitting your Minted files? I imagine you need a good quality photo of the painting to upload to Minted - do you do it yourself or have a "go to" shop in Lawrence that handles it? I guess the file preparation email will come out next week so I'm sure that'll answer many of my questions that suddenly popped up overnight...I'm sure that was pretty cool to see your painting printed and framed up. Sounds like you were pleased with quality and execution. By the way, like the new pic - was thinking of changing mine as well.

Thanks! Minted site was a bit slow or unresponsive this morning for me but working now. I'm excited - a good gust of wind in my sails, really :) Minted did the honors. So much work, I would love to look at each one individually but I'd be sitting here all day. A lot of first timers. So cool you got the West Elm list - perhaps you'll see it in the store in Overland Park, yes? I think there's one out there, only been a few times in recent years. How do you get your painting prepared to sell - the files, etc? Might be more involved than a photo but I'm hoping to do painting soon so I could use some tips :)

Hi Amy, that was a great game! They haven't made them easy to get through-bigger point spreads would help! Guess it toughens them up. Sounds like such a thrilling and lively art scene at Lawrence. Doesn't surprise me. I haven't been there in ages. Used to go often, either to visit friends or catch a movie but I also studied with a piano teacher at KU for a couple of years - after my undergrad at UMKC. Several of my colleagues continued at KU. I did take some an Urban Design class there too when I almost went that route. Do you get to Kansas City often? Oils are gratifying, haven't tried acrylics, at least the good kind. The watercolors is tough. My kids are very artistic. I have twins - boy and girl, age 7. Clara is especially intuitive and gifted at art. They both study music and dance. She does violin and James takes after me - piano. I can see them immersing themselves in it for a lifetime, let's hope. We're not too pressured with pushing them. It's good to have that support line regarding your husband. Likewise, my spouse gives me plenty of room to explore and try things out. I'm thankful! Art shows can be laborious and maybe a hassle but exposure can help, I guess. Discouragement can be had. Even here on Minted. I'm glad I tried the Challenge again this year - it's been inspiring and great to connect with other artist like yourself. I've enjoyed the voting round so far. Lots of great stuff out there. Have a great day!

Hey there Amy - hope you had a nice weekend. Yes, have enjoyed the chats and getting to know you. Sorry I didn't get back earlier...kids had a no school holiday Friday which kept me busy then weekend stuff. Can't believe Jayhawks let that game slip through their fingers Saturday but they didn't drop far at all in rankings. Iowa St always plays them tough. But Baylor lost too - ha! I'll be monitoring the score tonight and see if they can bounce back. I do remember Fahrenheit and looked at it again. So nice! How did you like your oils classes by the way? When you mentioned gallery and my photos got me thinking I should ready these for our local museum amateur art show and enter these in the photography category. Bet you're anxious for the West Elm outcome...catch you later. Go Jayhawks!

Love the diversity of your work, Amy! I can tell you have so many idea floating around in you! Winthrop sounds like a magical place. New England oceans are amazing. Yes, my travels inspire my work, but also kind of dreams and things I see behind my eyes if that makes sense. I try to bring calmness to my work to make people happy and less stressed out! Which I feel like we could all use :)

Amy, that's a terrific story regarding the Challenge last year and congrats to you! Quite a thrill. I read Minted's announcement and tried to keep up with their Media News regarding where artwork was being showcased but I just can't recall what piece you had picked or featured (Boston? Embers? Love the Montauk a favorite vacation spot for me). I did submit one photo last year - the icy trees. It was near the deadline and I did it on a whim more or less. I thought I'd be more prepared this year but it seems things are always coming up unexpectedly at the homefront (this year it was a clogged drain over the weekend - argh!). These abstract photos were just something I had experimented with recently and since Minted had that genre down as a Challenge I thought why not...perhaps I should consider them for gallery inclusion someplace or other outlets, try coming up with more pieces. After last year's West Elm I took some watercolor classes here in Bloomington, IL which like Lawrence has a solid, thriving art scene.. A lot of it was plain air style work which is how my oils have been of late even though I got into oil painting with an abstract class to start with (Peoria). I've been thinking of doing more abstracts with oils or acrylics so I'm somewhat on the same path as you with many styles. You definitely have a lead on abstracts and nailing it down in so many ways. Inspiring! Enjoy the day :)

Hi Eric, you know the art scene in Lawrence is really thriving. The Final Fridays go all year round and lots of people are very supportive of the different galleries and the local artists. All the restaurants and coffee shops all have art hanging by local artists. There are a couple art fairs that are popular too. I do not have any of my work in any galleries because as you may have noticed from my submissions I have no idea what my style is yet! So until I figure that out I've just been selling somethings on Etsy. Is this your first year entering the west elm challenge? Last year I heard about the challenge two days before the entry deadline. I entered one painting and it ended getting chosen and was on the cover of the catalogue! That really boosted my confidence and made me want to try again this year. you should definitely enter your paintings! They'll probably have another artwork type contest some time during the year. How is it where you live? Do you sell your photos somewhere?

Hey Amy! Yup, that game last night was a nail biter with a nice outcome! Knocking off KY and now Baylor! That's cool your first hand experience with the althetics department - had to have been a thrill! Hope they only continue grow and keep the hot streak going. Baylor will be a challenge - like Oklahoma last year. Thanks for your kind words. I wanted to do more for West Elm but too much in my plate. I actually dabble in painting but felt these particular photos were best to enter the Challenge. Next year I'll try painting. Do you sell your stuff in Lawrence at galleries? How is the art scene there these days?

Amy, thanks for the "like" - much appreciated. How's everything in Lawrence? I lived in KC for a long time, my in-laws reside in Mission. This is always a stretch asking artists if they follow sports but can't resist asking you (Royals, Jayhawks???). Anyway, love your work - very nicely composed and executed! Best of luck!
