I’m going to start this out by saying I’m one of the millions of people who are probably way too excited it is officially October. Why am I excited though? Not because of pumpkin spiced anything, but for the Harry Potter Weekend that will be occurring on October 21st and 22nd! I’ve been tirelessly perfecting my projects for the art show and getting ready to make a limited number of prints. If you’re curious, the show opens October 21st with a reception. You can find more information on the Facebook event, by clicking here. I’ll be displaying the following two works, called “Endings” (on the left) and “Beginnings”:
These are watercolor versions of the first and last Chapter art pieces in the Harry Potter series. I’m extremely proud of them and very happy to share them with tons of other HP fans! They will be available for purchase at $100 a piece, but if that’s too much for you I’ll have an extremely limited number of prints of each, plus (and again very limited) prints of these watercolors at $45:
Now, you may want to know why $45 because I’ve had people tell me that my prints are too expensive. Well, first it’s because these are limited edition prints. What I have for sale with me during Harry Potter weekend is all the prints that will ever be made of any of these four watercolors. They are specifically for Harry Potter Weekend 2016 and it will be the only way to get a hold of them. At this point I’ll probably only have six to eight of each, all numbered and signed. Secondly, they are printed on high quality photo paper so that you can frame and keep them forever.
If you’re able to come to this event, I truly hope you do and make one of these yours forever! Now, these aren’t the projects I had worked on this week for Projects 39 and 40 for my year long goal of one project each week. Those projects are Harry Potter themed as well though. One is the Hogwarts crest and the other is Sirius Black in his Padfoot form. Please excuse the low quality of photo! These actually look much better than these yellow, blurry camera phone photos lead you to believe.
So, another week comes to a close and I’m officially I believe caught up on all projects! Since I know this won’t last long, I’ll be enjoying my night off tonight. Please let me know in the comments below or on social media what you think about all the Harry Potter pieces in this post!
