Lepidoptera 10 & 11.

by ncwinters on March 16, 2022

Time seems like a new and increasingly abstract thing. But at least there’s new Lepidoptera to catch.

Been an age since my last update. I feel like that’s what I always say now, but in this case it actually was November I last released some new art, and that may be a new record. It feels ever increasingly strange to release art into the world right now. A world dealing with the ravages of Covid, a new war in Ukraine and all the other chaos of life, but it is what I do. And it is what I must do, both to keep my sanity and also provide for my family. So here we are.

I’m extremely happy with how the two newest entries into the Lepidoptera catalogue have come out. As always, thanks to Dave Correia for his impeccable skill printing these. His eye for maintaining the colors I’m pushing for is always appreciated. Thank you Dave.

This round features a couple variants from each main colorway. Maybe it’s the ADHD, maybe it’s just indecisiveness, but the last step of tweaking final color for output always brings new discoveries. Unseen possibilities for what ‘might have been’ color-wise from my original intention creating these bugs. It’s increasingly hard to resist seeing some of them come to fruition in printed form. So there’s some extra to choose from this time around.

The prints match the dimensions and medium of all previous Lepidoptera: 10″ wide by 8″ tall, on natural 100% cotton rag watercolor paper. Each print is hand signed and numbered according to edition size. Also, same as before, I’ve hand embellished a select few prints, for those who like their Lepidoptera with an extra personal touch. Irregular edges, drawing, colored inks, acrylic paint and textural effects, metallics, iridescent inks and whatever else is at hand in the studio as I free-form make a handful of prints into one-of-a-kind individual new paintings. These are random and all unique: you won’t know how one will look until it arrives.

Please note! There are strict limits in place in terms of how many prints can be purchased, and will be enforced, violators will have all orders cancelled and refunded:

NO MORE THAN TWO SETS (Lep 10 ‘Flame’ and Lep 11 ‘Morning’)
PER PERSON/PURCHASE/HOUSEHOLD.
Self explanatory- one or two sets per household, but no more.

NO MORE THAN ONE OF EACH VARIANT COLORWAY PER PERSON/HOUSEHOLD, INCLUDING HAND EMBELLISHED VERSIONS.
You can order a Lep 10 ‘Ivory’ and a Hand embellished Lep 10 ‘Shadow,’
but NOT TWO Lep 10 ‘Ivory,”
or a Lep 10 ‘Shadow’ AND a hand embellished Lep 10 ‘Shadow” etc.

The prints go up for sale this coming Friday, March 18 in the online shop at a random time. As always, to get the exact drop time, be sure you’re signed up to the newsletter in the sidebar over there. Newsletter subscribers get the inside scoop. These have traditionally gone very quickly, and I expect the same may happen for the very limited variants, so your best bet is the newsletter with drop time.

I hope everyone continues to stay as safe, healthy and sane as possible. The world is indeed different and ever challenging. Take care of each other and your individual mental health. I appreciate every single comment, like, and purchase you make with regards to my art. I cannot do this job without you, and I am grateful.

On to the prints. Be well, and I love you all!

For your information, there is a group on Facebook dedicated to my artwork. The group is filled with really good people who talk about, show off frame ups and help each other out in acquiring long lost works of mine. I didn’t create the group, several “fans” did. While I’m technically an admin, I don’t moderate the group at all, other than popping in from time to time with live video updates and special releases for the members of the group. Check it out if you’re interested!

“Liminal” Art Print.

by ncwinters on July 28, 2021

Feel really good about this one.

I’ve been itching to get this print out in the world: the month(s? year?) got away from me. The title “Liminal” references life right now, so this is pretty much right on brand.

The goal for this piece was to get back to the attempt to try and just get lost in the joy of making freeform work again. Not for any agenda, not for any client, just for myself, to not overthink, to just go. Seems like that should be an easy task, but it took a concerted effort, and as enjoyable as it was, it’s still a limited option with the daily schedule. Baby steps. The fun with this one was an eye-opener, now to just schedule it on the regular.

The prints are 18” x 18” giclee prints on Moab Entrada 100% cotton. Each print is hand signed and numbered. Printed exquisitely by Static Medium. I’m extremely happy with the final product. They’re good people at Static, and it’s always a privilege to have them print for me.

The prints come in four colorways in different edition sizes, full details below. I’ve also pulled some of each colorway (10 of Chroma, 5 each of the others) prints and have been adding inks, interference acrylics (sorcery!), spot varnish and other various mediums within reach: hand embellished prints for those looking for the deluxe pull. I’m having a lot of fun with these, I’ll be hand embellishing the available prints right up until I ship out, no two hand embellished prints alike. There will also be 5 sets of all four prints available, with a small discount for those purchasing the set. The sets will contain matching numbered prints.

Full details go out in the newsletter along with exact drop time for the release. Drop date is this coming Thursday, July 29. To get the newsletter, simply sign up in the sidebar of ncwinters.com.
