Campbell Studio is proud to present for Auction, one of our own exclusive Signed and Numbered Art Prints titled "Flowers". This Art Print comes in a frame ready condition (for those on a tight budget) to suit the frame you find to fit your decor, and will have a Certificate of Authenticity (not shown) attached. Frames can be found at Craft Stores such as Joann Fabrics, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Darice, etc. We suggest you xerox the print and take that with you to the frame stores so you can lay the xerox in the frame opening and see what looks best. Remember, the frame is part of the art and not every frame will do justice to this piece of Artwork. Sample framings are shown in this auction to indicate the styles we've found that look best. You can also print this auction out to help you in your framing selection.
The original for this print was made in 1973 while the Artist Melanie Campbell, Owner of Campbell Studio, was at Kent State University as an art student. It was a sketchbook assignment that she procrastinated on until the night before it was due (the sketchbook was a semester long assignment and should have been filled by the end of that semester, to be turned in as part of her grade). With thoughts of impending doom and anticipated scrootiny by her professor looming over her head, she got so angry at her own procrastination, that she grabbed a pencil, her sketchbook, looked around for something to draw and ferociously attacked the paper. In about five minutes, this "Flowers" art was born. Once she saw what she could do in anxious panic and anticipation of reprisal, she thought "if that's what comes out of me at moments like this, what else could I create?" Her professor was stunned and spellbound when he saw the drawing. Then he commented that she should have been doing that kind of work all semester long. She couldn't agree with him more, and she was sad to have disappointed Mr. Grossman, who was her favorite Drawing Professor.
Now we are offering this unframed print for all who are attracted to it. Several people currently have one in their homes and are enjoying it in their Dens, Living Rooms, Libraries and even on their Pianos, etc. It seems all who have seen this Framed Print in Person, have so far been captivated by it, and warmly embraced it. We offered it at a free auction last Christmas at our workplace, and people fought over getting one .... smile. The artist's own sister was impressed when she was presented with one of these framed prints for her 50th birthday. She's a perfectionist and not easily impressed ... LOL! 990 of these are available. As soon as this one is purchased, we'll put it up again, to be available for purchasing. This is definitely one gift for the holidays or other special occasion that will be unique. Or purchase as a treat for yourself to enjoy, for years to come! In the different branches of the Artist's Family, we've designated it as a family heirloom to be passed down from generation to generation.
