I Have Toilet Paper!

Papier du Toilette

 

It’s been a tough month for art sales with an even tougher month to come. I had very few scheduled events to begin with and of course, now they have all been cancelled. Not that I was advocating moving forward with them, especially since I have chosen to self quarantine for at least the next two weeks. No. I’m not sick, but I am over 60 and I do have a compromised immune system.

I live in hurricane prone Florida and it was just a month ago we stocked up on supplies for the coming season, which just so happens to have been a good move, given the current corona virus situation. That said, I have plenty of toilet paper and I plan to keep every bit of it here. But, pssst….since you are reading this, I will let you in on a little secret: I am willing to part with three rolls of toilet paper – limit one pack per person – for the first 25 people who respond – and pay for them! That’s right. You can get “Papier du Toilette” in a strictly limited edition of 25, numbered and signed by the artist (that would be me!) and shipped to your door anywhere in the continental U.S. for just $25, including postage and handling. You get an 8×10 in an 11×14 mat, ready for framing. You will never be without toilet paper in your bath again!

Eau de Toilettes

If you have the toilet paper, but prefer the toilet, I can help with that too! “Eau de Toilettes”, My Warhol version of all things toilet, is also available in a limited edition of 25, signed, numbered and ready to ship.

Since I now have plenty of time to work on my websites, I should have it set up to order directly from here in the next couple of weeks. Hey, I am painting toilets and toilet paper…I have plenty of time!  Until then, please leave a comment and I will get back with you asap!

 

What’s Up at Own A Debbie?

If you haven’t already heard the news, we are working feverishly on our new website. While we’re not abandoning Own A Debbie, we will be moving our original fine art,  and hand painted jewelry and accessories to the new site. If it’s painted by me, you will find it there. This site will remain and here you will be able to order everything from reprints to home decor to wearable fashion, all using our exclusive designs.

In the meantime, to whet your appetite for what’s to come,  here are a few of the things you will see on the soon-to-come site.

“Cod-Frey”, 11×14 acrylic on canvas, framed
“Sal Mon”, 11×14 acrylic on canvas, framed

Cod Frey and Sal Mon are the first in a series of whimsical fish art.

“Everything’s Popping Up Poppies”, 24×36 acrylic on canvas, framed

Wouldn’t “Everything is Popping up Poppies” look great behind your sofa?

Our hand-painted jewelry will make you stand out from the rest. These were made with slate collected in France.

Our serving platters make excellent hostess gifts.

Are you excited yet? Look for these and much more in our new, online gallery.  Stay tuned!

 

What’s new at Own A Debbie

Spring went by quickly and now we are into summer.  I’ve been busy testing new marketing ideas and unveiling new art projects for the past six months

So what have I been up to?

First, our biggest announcement. I am really excited about my new online blog coming soon. The Deborah Boyd Gallery will be used exclusively for selling my originals. That will encompass my award winning art, my Little Debbie originals and my handpainted eyeglasses, jewelry and serving platters. There will be no reprints offered from that site. Everything will be one of a kind.

Own A Debbie will still be here. It will be used exclusively for purchasing reprints, our clothing line and  everything from bedspreads to furniture made from my designs.

Look for announcements shortly.

I was in France recently and picked up some nice slate pieces for pendants and earrings. The first of these, “Lighthouse Delights” depicts the Ponce Inlet Florida lighthouse. The pendant and earrings are hand painted and the wires are made by hand. Three or four more designs will be available soon and will be sold on the new site.

I did two of my new serving plates and based on the finished result, I will be doing many more. These will also be available in our online gallery.

Stay tuned!

THE ‘OWN A DEBBIE’ ONE WOMAN SHOW

Quality Inn International Speedway,

2250 W. International Speedway Blvd., Daytona Beach

This award winning Quality Inn sits directly across from the Speedway. They have always been fans of Own A Debbie and the feeling is mutual. Currently, they have a number of ‘Debbie’s’ gracing their lobby and they are hosting my very first One Woman Show. There will be Wine and Cheese and tours of this beautiful property, which in itself is a work of art. Of course, admission is free.
