Charlsie Kelly is featured in Basement Magazine!

Nov 12, 2015

Internationally known artist Charlsie Kelly finds inspiration everywhere, and her methods and mediums reflect the diversity of places in which she paints.  The common thread in Charlsie's work is whimsy: from play-on-word idiomatic expressions in watercolor, faux mosaics to trick the eye, and larger than life murals set against an ocean backdrop, Charlsie exhibits a sense of playfulness in everything that she does.

 

Primarily painting vibrant watercolors, Charlsie also works in acrylic, traveling the world painting murals in hotels and private residences as well. Her colorful images have earned her a 6 page spread in this month’s Basement Magazine artist showcase. The feature includes beautiful shots of her work as well as an interview.

Art Licensing Art Department: Behind The Scenes

Nov 03, 2015

Art Licensing is known for representing amazing artists and supplying our customers with high quality images. What many people do not know is all of the behind the scenes work it takes to make these hi-res files. Many of our artists rely on us to make digital files of their masterpieces. 

We are fortunate enough to have an incredibly talented art department. We can take transparencies or slides and scan them to create digital files. After the scan is complete, our imaging specialists correct the color on the digital file to match the original image. 

We also have artists that send us their original paintings (made with various mediums) to our art department to be shot. We have a fantastic Hasselblad camera. This camera can make a very large hi-res file.  This works perfectly for our customers who create large products (like puzzles, flags or wall murals). Like the scans, the photos are also color corrected in house.

Once our art department has made the hi-res files, they repackage the painting (or transparencies/slides) and return it to the artist. We hold the upmost respect for our paintings and treat them with care (like everything we receive from an artist is a Van Gough)! We have been commended by our artists for treating their work with such integrity; here is a testimony from Chuck Black: “I've been dealing with shipping artwork through the mail for over 10 years and I must say that this is the first time that I had one shipped to me exactly how I would like it to be. It was re-packaged precisely how I had packaged it originally and I was very impressed when I opened it! Thank you very much for taking the time to care for my painting properly!!!” 

When an artist works with Art Licensing, they get an entire team of people working for them! Who would ever guess how much work it takes to make a painting into a licensed product! If you are interested in working with us, Contact us!
