Mediating Myself

Despite the five-figure prices for my recent, large enamel paintings and the four-figure price tags on my smaller works, I've created many even smaller pieces – not all of them art – that can be had for a lot less than $A1,000. Scattered around my studio and stored in my stock room are chapbooks of poetry and small drawings, Polaroids, digital and hand-printed enlargements from 35mm negatives, limited edition etchings, clay dolls, and small works in various media on paper, as well as signed postcards, posters, and limited edition t-shirts. I've decided to offer some of these things for sale at a new 'catablog', Dooney Studio, to be managed by my studio assistants.
Of course, my personal writings here will continue and my web site will remain the definitive reference resource for my work. And if all that's not enough, you can get bite-sized bits of me through each day at Twitter.

This is a great idea Hazel. I was inspired by your post asking why artists don't blog about interesting topics such as why it's challenging being an artist. I wrote an article about this and posted a comment on my blog about your limited edn print sale which is such a generous gift. Thank you.

Hi Hazel, the link to http://dooneystudio.blogspot.com/ doesn't work - or is it just me?

I decided to close the Dooney Studio 'catablog' because the idea had too many limitations. You can read more about my decision at http://hazeldooney.blogspot.com.au/2009/04/open-and-shut-case.html
