Red Red Wine

I have my colored pencil drawings scanned at a professional print shop. It's an inexpensive option since my artwork is small. It gives me a permanent image which I can then make into prints or greeting cards. I work closely with Bridget at my local print shop and we've developed a nice relationship. She made me laugh the other day! Sometimes, if I haven't named a piece, she gives it a name. When she emailed me the image of my new painting she had titled it " Red Red Wine". She said she thought of the Neil Diamond song when she saw it and couldn't get it out of her head all day. Sorry, Bridget - great title, though.

Buy this painting: Red Red Wine by Susie Tenzer 8" X 10"

  5. What a great idea! I never realized that print shops did that sort of thing. That could open a new sales market for you....cards and such!

  8. Crimson, I do sell cards & prints. Because my paintings are small, I can have them scanned for much less than hiring a photographer, which is what many artists must do.

    I feel a million dollars when you're just in my hand..."

  16. WOW you are talented. I saw the picture and was like "Hey cool pic..." started reading your blog and saw that you DREW that haha. NICE! I'm so jealous! Gorgeous work there lady!

    As for your question on Stumble vs Pintrest - I prefer stumble upon for moment. It covers a wider variety of topics/interests, etc. and more linked to pages rather than images and it's links.
