In September 2014 we featured the ARTiculAction publication project Call for Artists– here on our site.

Two artists who submitted to the call we shared– Alan Singer and Metrov– are both featured in the December 2014 Issue out now.

We are always glad to hear from artists on how such opportunities worked for them, such as this note–

Hello Marie,

I just wanted to thank you for sending the daily art marketing news.  Last October I shared the opportunity of having artwork published in ARTiculAction
with my class, and this month they published my interview.  This is a great example of going the extra distance to find a larger audience.  Your help in this new media mix is essential!

#ArtBuyer: “As soon as I saw the painting I knew I had to have it”

 

 

Ignition, Randall Marmet', 16 x 20 x 3/4 inches. This hand-painted artwork is on hand-stretched gallery-quality canvas clear coated with archival artists varnish for protection against dust and abrasion. $130.00 USD

Ignition, Randall Marmet’, 16 x 20 x 3/4 inches. This hand-painted artwork is on hand-stretched gallery-quality canvas clear coated with archival artists varnish for protection against dust and abrasion.

Artist Randall Marmet’, whose trademarked tagline is Imagine owning original art. Because you deserve it!™ was delighted with the sale of his painting titled Ignition. We featured his artwork in past articles here and here.

Randall–a consummate entrepreneur– has his shipping rates in place to offer the lowest costs to buyers of his artwork in the USA and overseas.  When Randall shipped this painting to the art buyer, he wrapped it with acid-free paper, then a double layer of bubble wrap and an extra rigid layer of foam core board on the front side to protect the painting inside the heavy-duty box.  He insured the value of the painting through the United States Postal Service (USPS) as well.

The buyer of Ignition told Randal that when he saw the painting, he knew he had to have it. That’s how real the painting looks in the above image. For, of course, the image is what the buyer saw before he made his purchase of the work and will only actually view the physical  art work when it arrives at his door.

 

Today, we are also featuring Randall Marmet’s Wellness of Life video (above). Last week, we featured still images of Randall’s painting Wellness of Life along with his pet dog and muse Harley here. Our feature article included details on the retail price of the painting and how to acquire the artwork. You can also communicate with the artist directly via his website Marmet Fine Art to find out more.

Wellspring of Life the story and inspiration, by Randy Marmet’–
“We float over a sea of tumultuous energy, right through a barrier of fluid dynamics into a dimension of transcendence where creativity is born in synaptic interaction.  If you could peer into the depths of the creative process, this is where you would find a pulsating liquid nuclei that refuses to be subdued into shape or form and is similar to where life began.  My inspiration came from a deep water dive off the coast of Florida where tropical life was teeming in and around a barrier reef with such energy that it made me feel like I had discovered the secret to the source of life itself.  This sacred place spoke to me in a whisper as I was sworn to secrecy because of it’s fragility.  I cannot return to that place, but I can show you how it felt.”
