Re: Doggie Heaven

Thank you for your kind words!

Claudia, yes, I'm going to have this painting scanned and produce some giclees. For me the marketing of prints is very daunting, I have some of my works produced as giclees but only sold very few. I like to create and paint but feel very uncomfortable approaching and making offers to dealers and retailers. I have an agent in the US but my contract with them is mainly for licensing of my images. I'm still looking for a good way to sell prints preferably to the mass market... but really, is there such a thing? Any ideas?

Re: Doggie Heaven

Wilfred - I think you should try the greetings card manufactures - these details you posted are far better than many of the cards I've been viewing this morning!

I think aslo, on a small scale, you'd probably sell cards from Vet surgeries - y'know how soft we dog and cat lovers are!

Re: Doggie Heaven

I loved it wilfred and my 5 years old boy also adored it. He called it 'dogland'))
Nice composition, pleasant colors and funny subject! It gives me a good mood when I look at it! Thank you for that!

Re: Doggie Heaven

Thank you so much for your comments.

Zovgiya, I'm glad to hear your son loves it! I hope he will love the next one, also a doggie painting which may be done in a few weeks. Watch for it.

Here are some more detail images of Doggie Heaven which were not included in my original post.




























DOGGIE HEAVEN 24"x30" Acrylic on Canvas



Thank you for looking!

Re: Doggie Heaven

This is a wonderful, colourful , joyous work and I love it. I have been reading through the replies and must admit that I am mopping up a flood of tears. You have a unique gift.

Re: Doggie Heaven

Oh Chammi... I'm so touched by your comments! (tears in my eyes too). Credit really goes to all the wonderful people who have expressed their thoughts and sentiments here, they made this work much more meaningful.

Thank you so much and God bless!

Re: Doggie Heaven

Thanks for posting the extra details Wilfred - and in them, details within details ..... it's a truly magical, whimsical painting.
There are so many of these little pooches doing very doggie things that the work gives us hours of enjoyment

Another thought - you could market this online - downloads to people who 'buy' them ......... or market it via ne of the print-making sights who'll do all the work for you!
I'd buy at least a greetings card of one or more of the detail areas

Re: Doggie Heaven

Lol Wilfred - that's so kind of you, but I was thinking of you having cards made to SELL!!! - so you get some return on your investment of time, energy and, above all, talent!

Re: Doggie Heaven

Life happened and I haven't painted in a while and today, I thought I'd check the site.

Wilfred, this is terrific work
Think of how many vet's offices there are in Canada and the US alone and how many of them would proudly have one of those giclees on their walls.

Please do not let this whimsical and beautiful work go unnoticed.

Kathy: your poems brought a river of tears to my eyes. My <little man< went to the Rainbow bridge in March after we lost our battle with his diabetes and other medical problems. We still have his little sister and they are both rescues from a puppy mill after we paid a steep <ransom< to get them out of of that nasty place.

Thank you so much for your comments, Louise! I truly admire people like you who have so much love and compassion for the unfortunate pups, unmindful of the costs. In return you are blessed by their love and loyalty to the end. Thanks for sharing your story.

Wilfred
