I submitted these two pieces to the 2013 Rochester Contemporary Art Center 6×6 show today. This is a fun show where you donate original 6″ x 6″ works of art and they sell them to raise funds for the center. The artist’s name is not revealed until after the item is sold. I heard they were about to go under a few years ago, and they decided to give it one more shot. They marketed it better I guess, and now the show receives international submissions. Last year there were over 7,000 pieces, which they put up with tacks in a grid floor to ceiling. It is fun to attend, seeing this crazy variety of art – my kids liked it a lot. Admission is only $1 and it runs through June and the first half of July.
Lupito is a rescued Chihuahua, and McLovin’ lives at Farm Sanctuary.
This is my first time printing a computer-aided work. Not wanting to print it on fine-art paper, with its cold-press sort-of texture, I used Moab Lasal Matte paper on my Canon Pixma Pro 9000 II. I used the ICC file Moab provides with no problems. It came out fantastic – it glows in the least amount of light, almost seeming like it would glow in the dark.
