Paintings I've Done About "The Hobbit" Can't Post

   I've displayed one painting already of Bag End in the Mist on another post but I am painting other ones about "The Hobbit" and dont want to annoy by reposting them on seperate threads. So i will be displaying them on this one as I make them. Check back every week if you like to see whats new. I will also put a link to where they are all dispayed at once. Hope you like them. they are a lil out of focus ( taking the pics on my blackberry) http://s773.photobucket.com/albums/yy16/michaelg04/

That is incredible. [In reply to] Can't Post

Those rocks make me very glad I'm not packed in a barrel.

And your idea of posting within the same thread is a good one but might I suggest that like the Today in Middle Earth posts that when this thread moves to the second page you make a new one.

Have you ever thought about selling your pictures [In reply to] Can't Post

on the internet, to friends/family, local exhibitions/shops etc?

They are really gorgeous and I know other people would be interested!

Perhaps you could also [In reply to] Can't Post

give some description of them. I am in know way painting-savvy. I know very little about water colour, pastel etc. May be nice to find out the method/s you use/d to produce these wonders.

Thank You. [In reply to] Can't Post

You are very kind with your comments. To answer your question, no, I have never concidered selling them or would know the first step on how to. I use oil paints with a medium of purified poppy oil. This oil dosent yellow the picture in time as Lindseed oil tends ( for me at least.) I use a pre streched canvas with white gesso already applied ( I use the art store PEARL as my one stop shopping.) through my practicing, i have come to rely on the basics of BOB ROSS and infuse the concept capibilities of Alan Lee and John Howe. Once again Thank you ALL who post for taking the time to comment on the paintings. I truely welcome all feedback and suggestions. :)

You could also consider prints [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't have the room for paintings in my house. I actually have very little wall space due to how the house is constructed and laid out.

But I love buying smaller versions of art I like - especially postcard and notecard versions I can give to friends as gifts.

here is the link again to Photobucket where you can get a closer view. Again, pictures are a bit fuzzy as I am still taking them with my black berry. My apologies.

I think you can go to my link at photobucket and order prints to be picked up at a local shop. I never did it myself though.

well, I was thinking of high quality versions [In reply to] Can't Post

You'd get them scanned and color corrected as needed to professional standards. I don't think that image shot with your phone is going to print well at all. :-)

But you wouldn't make money off that anyhow. I think you could possibly make money off prints of these images. But I've never tried making serious money off my hobbies so I may be overreaching.

Thank You [In reply to] Can't Post

for your confidence in believing that the paintings are worth the possibility of being sold, in any form. I would have to look into the matter of prints as you suggested or even if I can leagally sell a painting , or print, that is a subject of "The Hobbit" or " Lord of the Rings".

I don't know where you live [In reply to] Can't Post

but I know that my area (Twin Cities, MN, USA) has various forms of mentoring / support for creatives. It may be worth looking around for someone who does something similar in your area (turning art into prints, etc.) and asking if they'd give you an informational interview. Or a local college just might have a class of some sort for the business end of artists.

Definitely look around etsy.com for what people are offering and the price.
