This is my next-to-last update before my studio closes for two weeks. Sketchbook and Nikon are at the ready, and my cell will be taking quickies to post on Twitter and Instagram whenever we’re in a wi-fi zone… I want to share the journey, if possible! My Instagram is: hardy.ingrid and my Twitter handle is: @Ingrid_KV_Hardy. Does it show I’m excited…..? It’s been 28 long years… And truth be told, I’m not fond of flying. But watcha gonna doo.
For today, my first of only 3 Artist Proof cards is available from Upper Deck’s Captain America: Civil War trading card set. These AP cards are unique, and the letters AP stamped on the front, and are signed by moi on the back. This one is up on Ebay for a 5-day auction:
Then, finally, my first limited edition Giclée print is available as of Friday, May 20th, 2016!
Ready to frame, this Giclée print measures 6 x 9 inches. The original is the same size, handpainted in acrylic paint on archival unmounted canvas (contact me if you wish to purchase the original painting). Each print is signed and numbered by hand (by me), and there are only 25. When these are gone, they are gone.
According to wikipedia, the Friesian Horse is a horse breed originating in Friesland, in the Netherlands. Although the conformation of the breed resembles that of a light draught horse, Friesians are graceful and nimble for their size. It is believed that during the Middle Ages, ancestors of Friesian horses were in great demand as war horses throughout continental Europe. Through the Early Middle Ages and High Middle Ages, their size enabled them to carry a knight in armour. In the Late Middle Ages, heavier, draught type animals were needed. Though the breed nearly became extinct on more than one occasion, the modern day Friesian horse is growing in numbers and popularity, used both in harness and under saddle. Most recently, the breed is being introduced to the field of dressage.
The prints can be purchased directly through me (Just email me: ingrid.hardy.1@sympatico ), or through my ETSY shop, or through Ebay (I’ll post the link to Ebay shortly).
Thank you for reading this, and for having an interest in my work. I hope you’ll tag along with me on my trip – as much as I’m able to share of it – as I really wish to find some way to give back to the people who have been generous, meaning all of you. Even your interest is important! I thank you.
