Last day for my '50 Days' series

'Wild at Heart''
Charcoal
15 x 23.5"
£50

The money from this drawing is being donated to Maggie's Centre http://www.maggiescentres.org/donate/donate1.html

Today is the last day that the drawings from my '50 drawings in 50 Days' series will be available to purchase. They will still be available as prints and cards but the originals will no longer be for sale. The project was very useful and informative and I learnt a lot about commitment, charcoal and even marketing. However, it is time to move on with new projects and so I am laying my first project to bed. 
Thank you to everyone who supported me during this project - I hope you'll join me for the next one. I'm still working on the details, but it will be paintings this time - though I'm not sure one a day is possible! We'll see though. It would definitely be a massive challenge!

The times they are a' changing

After much thought and advice I have decided to separate my commission work from my 'gallery' work. By this I mean that I will use my website - www.mathersart.com to showcase my 'Original' (non-commissioned work) and this blog will concentrate on my commissioned work.

I will include some of my original work in the posts here but for regular and detailed info please keep an eye on my website - www.mathersart.com

I will continue to have my facebook pages too - Commissions and Originals

Thanks,

6 Days to go - Movement Study II'

Movement Study II
16 x 23"
Charcoal,


For today's featured drawing I have chosen 'Movement study II'. Although this drawing is somewhat unusual in its composition, I feel that it really shows the energy and tension of horses. I hope you like it :)

Today's Featured Drawing - 7 Days To Go!

"Highland II'
15 x 23"
Charcoal

There are only seven more days left to purchase a drawing, or two, from my '50 Days' series. Today's featured drawing is called 'Highland II' and I like to think it shows off the Highlands characteristics - clever eye, long beautiful mane, sturdy but gentle mannerisms. What can I say - I love Highlands!

9 days to go...

"My Girl"
Charcoal
16.5 x 23"
£40

Today's drawing was going to be 'Scratching Post' but it sold before I could post it up! So, instead, today's drawing is "My Girl". She's one of my favourites, but them I am biased! :)

10 Days to go!

'Poise'
Graphite
11.5 x 16.5"


Today's '50 Days' featured drawing is 'Poise'. This drawing is of a chestnut mare who was competing at last years Fife Show. I chose graphite for this drawing as i like the way it looks energetic and kind of messy, which I think helps show the tension in the horse.

Only 11 days left to purchase a '50 Days' Drawing



Charcoal drawing of a donkey

'Donkey!'
11.5 x 16.5"
SOLD

There are only a few days (well, there's 11 to be precise) remaining to grab yourself a piece of original art work, from my '50 Drawings in 50 Days' series.

Each day I will feature one or two drawings that are still available to buy.

Today's featured drawing is called 'Donkey!'. 'Donkey' was inspired by a field full of donkeys near my cottage that I pass by every other day. The gorgeous donkeys attract so much attention from passers by, they really are local celebrities. My husband took to the one above and spent the whole time scratching the donkeys head while I was gathering my reference photos! 

If you would like to the others in the series please
just scroll down through the drawings below.

The Small Print:
Each art work is individual. The sizes and media will vary but I will note this in the description of each image that I post.

Please note that colours may vary slightly between the image on your screen and the original art work. This is due to monitors, scanners and cameras all being slightly different.

All works are sold unmounted and unframed.

Works are sold on a first come first served basis.Very occasionally if I am not quick enough in updating my stock level a work may become sold twice. If this happens I will refund the payment immediately. I make every effort to ensure this shouldn't happen.
 Postage
Postage to the U.K (including the Islands, Highlands and Northern Ireland) is Royal Mail Special Delivery. It is signed for and tracked throughout. The cost is £5.90. Please get in touch for a quote if you would like the work posted outside of the U.K.

Your Testimonials, Please!

Hello and welcome back!

I've not been around recently long enough to update my blog. However, I promise I have not been slacking! I'm working on some very interesting commissions at the moment and also working through the courses on offer at the Business Gateway and the Cultural Enterprise.

The courses are brilliant and very motivational. I'm even, slowly, getting to grips with networking! There were times when I never thought I would be able to say that. I am naturally quite shy (although some people may not believe that statement :) ) and I do find it hard talking about myself. But, I have enough conviction in my artwork to talk about that, so I am getting there.

I am currently working on my marketing plan and a few ideas have been suggested. Such as including testimonials in my advertising and website. If any of my customers/ recipients of my work would like to contribute a testimonial please email me. I will, if you agree, include your name, town and comment.
Please email me at mathersart@gmail.com.

Thank you.

p.s. finished commissions will be posted shortly.
