Happy Summer!

I am so excited to share with you what is new this summer in the studio!

Want to know what’s new?

Palette Bangles~ a line of bracelets made from my old painting palettes.  100% of profits go straight to Palette with A Purpose program.  This quarter I am giving all money to kids here in the middle Tennessee area aging out of foster care.  What kinds of things do they need, you ask?  Everything! Think: gas cards, food cars, backpacks (and other college supplies), laptops, clothes, etc.  I can’t wait to see how many kids I am able to help out.  Let me know if you want to help too!  I will be sharing more about these on my social media platforms and doing some Flash sales ~ so stay tuned!

Block Art ~ I am taking some of my popular art prints and mounting them on to wooden blocks.  These pieces are versatile as they require no “wall space” and can sit on desks, shelves and tables.  Perfectly priced at $25 and under so they make a nice gift too!  These are available at Fireflies, C’est Moi and at my studio.  Just message me through my Kirsten Reed Art Facebook page.

I am also working on several commission projects for clients.  These are always my most challenging and most rewarding pieces!  I am not going to lie, I get full of doubt every single time.  “What if they don’t like it?” kind of thoughts try to keep me from bringing my best to the canvas, but I always conquer those fears!  I will be taking orders for commissions for Christmas up through October 1.  Let me know if you have a special gift in mind for someone so we can work together!  Here are a few recent commissions I did:

New art from the studio

This new piece coming out of my studio this week is my abstract interpretation of flowers falling.  The art mixes cool blues and hues of green and is complimented with hints of yellow and browns.  This piece would be a lovely statement piece providing a pop of color.

“Falling”

36″x36″ acrylic on canvas.

Available. $518.00

Angels all Around

Next week Fireflies, Spring Hill’s premier gift boutique will be hosting their Holiday Open House.  This year each vendor is offering custom-made gifts and items “ready-to-go” for your shopping ease!

I will be taking orders for my popular 4×6″ angel canvases.  If you come that day, you will have an opportunity to order your own angel ~ customized.  Whatever hair color, hair style, skin tone, or canvas color scheme.  You can even pick a bible verse, if you want, for me to add at the bottom of her dress.

Here are some photos of how my angels look.

Original angel artwork canvases are perfect gifts for friends, mothers, daughters, sisters, grandparents, caregivers, teachers, mentors and co-workers.  Each piece will be signed and come wrapped with a note saying it was custom-made especially for them.  What a one-of-a-kind gift! And for only $38 plus tax (and shipping if not local).

Can’t make it to Fireflies?  Contact me directly via email (kirstenreed@yahoo.com) and I will send you a custom order form to fill out.

All orders must be placed by December 12, 2015 in order to be ready for local pick up by December 23.

Montgomery Bell Academy Art Show

 

If you are in the market for a new piece of art, you won’t want to miss Montgomery Bell Academy’s art show Sept 13-26.  There are more than 40 very talented artists in a variety of different mediums showcasing their pieces. I am so blessed to be included among them.

Here are a few pictures of me setting up ~ everything is still temporary at this stage  (signage, etc.)

The show will kick off Sunday, September 13 from 5-7pm in the Davis Building.  I hope to see you there!
