Many of you purchased my book Painting a Dog a Day - the First Year as a holiday gift. It was crazy in the studio, getting 100 copies of the book mailed in time for Christmas, but we did it!! The past few days I have been overwhelmed with the notes and emails of gratitude - seriously, though, I should be thanking YOU for your business!
The consensus it that the book was overwhelmingly appreciated and passed around - and the second press run has almost sold out in 10 days!! There will be a third run processed in January - I'll keep the copies coming for as long as you continue to order them!
Painting a Dog a Day - the First Year is available in both soft and hardcover. It is over 100 pages, with well over 100 full color reproductions of the paintings. It also includes an essay outlining the artistic journey I took in the first 15 months of daily painting. You may order the book directly from the publisher Blurb, using the link on the Dog-a-Day blog, or you may opt to order the book from me. Same cost in both places, but in return for ordering from me, you'll receive an inscribed copy.
Softcovers are $39.95 plus 9.95 s&h and any applicable Michigan sales tax. Hardcovers are $54.95 plus 9.95 s&h and any applicable Michigan sales tax.
Orders can be placed via email - firstname.lastname@example.org . I'll confirm receipt of your order and send an invoice, after which we will outline shipping details.
And I will be happy to combine book orders with painting shipments. Paintings are selling quickly off my new Etsy store - take a peek when you get a chance before that piece you've been wanting goes to someone else! Here's even more incentive - 20% off all canvasboard purchases with the checkout code "DOGADAY" through January 31st, 2009.
Want to commission your own Dog-a-Day? Send me an email - email@example.com . I'm booking new clients for January 2010, and have a few remaining holiday 2009 spaces for returning customers. Portraits booked now will also be locked into my 2008 prices, which is a nice bonus.
Thanks again for all your support this past year. You travelled with me through the ups and downs, and are still around to celebrate what the new year will bring! I am so very grateful!
