Moving Pains, Studio Gains, Friday Print Release

My wife and I ended up buying a house last month, rather unexpectedly, and rather awesomely. Moving is always pretty rough when it comes to uprooting your life, but it's doubly disrupting when you work where you live, especially when you're in the middle of a show. I love my new space though, so it's been very worth it.

Ugh. What a mess. Setting up a new studio is always a daunting, yet exciting undertaking.

 Here's a recent shot with the studio finally starting to come together. I've also got a whole separate room for doing resin which is amazing.


I'm finally getting settled into the new space, and getting back into the groove of painting. Though I did have to sacrifice a couple weeks of work, so there will need to be some serious, non-stop painting sessions in the next few weeks. I've also had a chance to get my print shop up and running, so I'll be releasing 2 new prints this Friday, September 19th at 4:00 Eastern Time through my Etsy Store.

Here are the details:

Commission Reborn

Together in Love and Wonder UF

Together in Love and Wonder

I started this piece as a commission last June, but we ended up going in a different direction with the piece around halfway through it. When I do commissions, I discuss themes, aesthetics, and previous pieces that were liked, and I never really do sketches. Over the several commissions I've done, I usually nail it in this regard. Plus I love the reveal when the piece has been a mystery in the making. Exciting for everyone! But now and again, things don't shape up they way the collector envisioned, and a new direction must be made. Which is fine by me, because I want the person getting the commission to be completely in love with the piece that was made for specifically for them. Plus, I had another piece in the works that I was totally into, and I knew it would be finished one day. Winners all around!

So I put this piece aside, and ended up nailing the commission with the next piece, which ended up being Our Wondrous Journey

Our Wondrous Journey

Our Wondrous Journey

Fist pump. Over the last year, I've been working on the former commission intermittently when I could, and I finally finished it a week ago. As you can tell with the Our Wondrous Journey piece, this commission was for a family, so that was the main theme for me. I really wanted to capture the beauty and wonder of sharing life with a family. 

This piece is now in my web store, and I hope it finds its way to another happy family.

Resin Print Delay

Due to the intensive, 3 week straight, all-nighter paint fest going on with my upcoming show, I haven't been able to put as much time into the resin prints as I had planned. I'm hoping to get half of them done over the weekend, and maybe half after the show is finished. Thanks for your patience and updates to come posthaste.

Dirty Winter Report: New Prints and Resin Print Update

For all those out there enduring this bitter and cruel winter, I wish you well. The hard months are almost behind us, and the teasing of Spring is around the corner. Though I feel there will be a lot of teasing before Winter lets Spring out of it's strangle hold. In fact, if the changing of seasons participated in an old school WWF tag team wrestling match this year, then the Winter Boys' Manager would be distracting the referee, while they both mercilessly pounded one of the Springsteens with flying elbows, legs drops, and metal chairs behind the ref's back.
A friend of mine proposed that this long winter is actually a well orchestrated and over the top marketing campaign for the next season of Game of Thrones. We get it HBO. Winter came and we were all knights of Summer. That being said, looking forward to season 4!
The one positive aspect of winter is that there it leaves me little reason to wander out of the confines of my studio. With my next show in June at Roq La Rue approaching with an impossible rapidity, there is still much left to do. Amongst neglecting emails, social media, and personal hygiene, I've also noticed my Etsy store has become a bit barren. I've sold out of a number of editions and some others are nearly sold out. As it happens, I've recently finished a couple commissions, so I'll be releasing them along with a couple other pieces as prints on Friday March 21st at 4:00 PM Eastern Time.

Here are the details.

Our Wondrous Journey
Limited edition of 100
22" x 18" including 1" White Border

I've also been working on the long overdue resin prints over the last few months. I'm on the final layer of both of them, and I'm hoping to have them done in the next month. Here are the details of those.
Roamer of the Subterranean Forest
Limited Edition of 15

Relish in Moments of Glory
Limited Edition of 15
16" x 16"
Here are some progress shots.
Hello Resin Prints. Nice to see you

After a layer of resin on the print, I added some fog and added some color.

Then another layer of resin, and the first layer of trees.
After another layer of resin, I'm now working on the final layers of fog and trees.
 During the first layer of resin, I sprinkle some wet oil paint into the wet resin. Adds some really cool depth the the sky and makes each piece very unique.

 Then some cloud painting and coloring.
I'm on the final layer of painting clouds and the foreground trees.

If you're interested in one of these, please email me to reserve one.

Halloween Print Release

It's that time of year again when the smell of wood fire emanates the air, fallen leaves dance around the ankles, and a lone deer stares at you from behind the neighbors fence, whispering scurrilous gossip of strange and imprudent deer. It's time to indulge in pumpkin pie, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin drop cookies, pumpkin ale, pumpkin stout, pumpkin shaped reese's cups, It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, Pumpkinhead the movie starring Bishop from Aliens, pumpkin underwear, pumpkin helmets, and anything else pumpkin related or pumpkin smelling. It's time to put on jackets and boots, and enjoy the last days of leaf-filled trees before the onset of a bare limbed winter. This is my season, and it seems like a fine time to release some prints.
I'll be releasing 4 new prints on Halloween, Thursday October 31st at 3:00 Eastern Time. So grab some hot cider and head on over to my Etsy store next week.
Happy Fall Everyone!

The ‘Ol Art Shipping Scam

I've received a good number of these emails over the years, so I thought I would share a recent one in case any of you haven't heard of this scam. Here's the initial email.

Good Day,

Am interested in your Artwork I saw in your website, The work am talking about is below....

Bring Forth the Tides of Night 2012 Oil on Wood Panel 30" x 30"

Please email me the details of the work if they are still available and their price you want to sale them.

I will be expecting your reply,


First of all, all the details of the work are in what she copied and pasted off my website, and there is a price for the piece on my website. Also, the "I will be expecting your reply." is a pretty much a dead give away that it's a scam. For some reason they feel like they should create this air of urgency on the transaction, but all it should do is create a red flag. At this point I know I'm dealing with assholery... but just in case I send an email back.

Hi Holly,

It's still available. It's $3500. It would ship from the US. $40 for domestic and $100 for International

What else do you need to know?



-Short and wasting as little of my time as possible because I know what's coming.

Dear Andy,

Thank you for the Information about the Artwork and am happy to read  back from you.

Regarding the Payment Am not using PayPal due to my past experience on PayPal, I will issue you a Check it might be a cashier or Bank Draft, "according to the advised given to me by my Bank" I will inform you as soon as the Check is been sent out from my office here in Glasgow Scotland.

I will need your information to process the Check. We may also speak on Skype if you wouldn't mind in other to discuss about the  transaction verbally and for you to be able to know more about me.

Name on Check:


Phone Number:

Skype ID:

Also i want you to know that i will appoint a secured shipping company that will come for the pickup of the pieces in your destination. The shipping fees will be added to your payment.

So I guess a guaranteed secured shipper will be preferably considered and appoint for the pickup.

Am on Skype as: hollyfriedman, or call me on 447024073077 for any question concerning my purchase

Holly Freidman

Annnnnnd there it is. It will be a check coming from Scotland and she has her OWN "secure shipping company" that will pick the piece up. Well that's convenient! As soon as the personal and secure shipping company pops up, you know someone is trying to rip you off.

So if I continued with this, a couple things could happen. I would receive a check that was double or triple the amount I asked for, and I would be asked to send the remainder back with the "secured shipping company."

Or the check would be a few hundred dollars more, and a personal tragedy or financial crisis would occur before the "secure shipping company" had a chance to pick up the piece. They would then ask you to refund the money straight away to deal with this terrible, terrible tragedy. Either way, the check would be bogus and your bank would take that money out of your ass. Instead of getting thousands  you get shorted thousands. That's a raw deal.

Even though it's happened before, having someone trying to pull one over on me pisses me off. I thought of some mean spirited things to do, but I just ended up having some fun with them.

Hi Holly,

Great! I'm so glad you're interested in my piece. I've been hoping and praying to sell this piece so I could finally afford the double bi-pass surgery for my sick Iguana, Chaka Khan.

I don't accept checks, I only accept gold ingots or ammunition. Preferably 9mm Luger, .45 ACP and 5.56 x 45mm NATO.

As for shipping, I actually have my own shipping service so no need to worry about that. My friend, Dan, is an avid outdoorsman, sailor and mountain biker. He always delivers everything for me and has never failed me. It might take him a while to get to Scotland since he insists on using a one man skiff to cross the ocean. Then once he gets to Scotland, he will hike and bike his way through the Scottish highlands to find you and deliver this precious, lovely artwork to your doorstep. Dan will probably be pretty starved and exhausted by this point, so would you be able to feed him and let him crash on your couch for a few days? He'll need to regain some energy for the long trip back to the States. And if it isn't too much of a hassle, could you show him the place where William Wallace was executed, and where the Battle of Falkirk was fought? He's a huge fan of that movie... and don't be surprised if he yells, "FREEEEEEEEEDOOOOOOOOOMMMMMM!"

Please let me know as soon as possible. I told Chaka Khan about this sale and he is very excited and hopeful. I haven't seen him this heartened in years, but he is very ill so please hurry.

Also, I've informed Dan of the job, and he is getting geared up for the trip across the Atlantic.

I will be expecting your reply,


-I am still waiting for a reply. Hold on Chaka Khan!!!


It looks like Holly sent the same email to my brother, Ben. Here is his response.

Hey Holly!

Thanks you so much for the interest in my artwork. You copied and pasted some of my most personal works to date. Unfortunately I donated all of my artwork to help out my brother's iguana Chaka Khan so I have nothing available.

But I hear you are going to purchase a painting off of my brother Andy. This is such a blessing! Little Chaka may just pull through with that sale and I may be able to afford to make more art.

Here's a picture of Chaka… he's really pepped up since learning of his imminent life-saving surgery:


We plan on re-naming his aquarium on your honor. It shall henceforth be called "The Holly Freidman Life Giving Aquarium". 

Is there any way I could get a picture of you? I know a master sculptor that works in bronze… it was would be amazing to have a miniature statue of you in the aquarium. I am certain that you are a beautiful person… I just hope he can capture your inner beauty. This will probably be the greatest test of his lifelong passion and skill.

Thank you again and God bless!

A Luminous Weekend

Just returned from New York from my latest show, Luminous Reverie, at Jonathan LeVine Gallery. All  in all, an exceptional trip. I drank at least 8 different bourbon cocktails, shared a 38 oz steak with my wife Ash, got a friend slapped at a bar, punched at least 3 people in the gut and returned with out a scratch... well excluding the small bruise on the bridge of my nose when Ash accidentally elbowed me in her sleep. The show itself was an amazing experience and I got showcase the new resin paintings for the first time in the Big Apple. The overall reception was extremely positive so I can rest easy.

I posted the new work to my website and my Facebook Page. Please check it out and if you are in the New York, please drop by Jonathan LeVine Gallery and see it in person. The show is up until June 15th.
