Saatchi online Competition – would you vote for me?
January 28, 2011
I am really sorry that I have not posted lately but I am very busy with marketing my work. My attitude is that I cannot go on and create one after another if I don’t sell anything. I have heard/read from other painters who rather burn their paintings that do not sell for whatever reason than stocking them in the basement. What’s your point of view about this?
For me it’s simply a practical point of view: I just don’t have the space to stock all these works especially not the biggies and I hate producing waste and this would be exactly it if I would burn my works. I am still standing behind every single piece. Works which do not come up how I want them to be are being re-used if possible.
Now I have a little wish for you. You know I love pigeons and care very much for them. I have often talked about my pigeon diary the Pigeon Tales, documenting everything I learn about pigeons, their behaviour and during the past years I have deeply fallen in love with these amazing birds which are completely different from those awful prejudices they are beaten with.
I have also started a painting series about them, using members of our pigeon family as models. One of those paintings I have now submitted to the Saatchi online competition. Wouldn’t it be a wonderful hommage to these wonderful birds if a painting would make it into the first places?
So I am asking for your help. If you like this painting (see below) would you vote for it on the Saatchi website? Here is the link. If you don’t want to register with Saatchi you can use your facebook account instead. The voting is going til Feb 07 for the first round.
