Cecelia Feld’s Art Pick of the Month for November 2010

Comments (3)

My mom (Cecelia Feld) has had a huge positive impact on my life in many ways.  I like to think that I’ve also had a huge positive impact on her life, although I’m sure there have been times that she wanted to hide in a closet from me and scream at the top of her lungs.

Cecelia is an amazing artist who has worked at her craft her entire adult life.  As kids, my brother Daniel and I understood that between 9am and 5pm “mom was working in her studio” and was not to be bothered.  Among other things, I learned the notion of focused, passionate discipline from her, but I also figured out how to keep myself entertained until she was done working for the day.

One thing that I’ve pestered her endlessly about is being a more shameless salesperson for her art.  So, it’s with much pride that I see her now doing her “art pick of the month” where she’s selling one of her pieces for 30% off and promoting it through her email list.  I can’t get her to do a blog, so instead I’ll promote it here.

This piece is called (#984) Kimono Series #6 and is a collagraph monotype sized 22×30”. Cecelia did this in 2002 which makes me think of the chaos that was in my head as I continued to unwind the mess that was my world from the collapse of the Internet bubble. It lists for $950 so with the 30% November 2010 discount it’s only $665.

If you are an art lover and this piece appeals to you or you want to be added to Cecelia’s email list, send her an email.  I’d love to be able to tell my mom “see – my blog is worthwhile – I sold a piece of your art through it.”
