I love the aqua color in this pastel painting. Especially the light, bright aqua arches behind the figures. They always look like angels to me. Many people have wanted to buy this particular painting. “Reflections in Blue I” is what started me thinking about licensing my art work.
Reflections in Blues I, Pastel Â© Diane Clancy
I figure that if so many people feel that this image is uplifting, then I want lots of folks to be able to be inspired. Right now I make this image available in cards and prints that I sell to stores and to individuals.
Licensing is allowing someone else to use one’s images for a particular purpose. I have licensed some of my images for music CD’s, yoga CD’s and publicity. People have paid me a reasonable flat fee for using my images.
I want to find a business that would want to produce cards, calendars, mugs or such with this painting. Then I would receive royalties for their usage. The amount I receive would depend on how much of their product sells.
In the research I have done about licensing, companies tend to want a related series of 4 images. This is the first of this set of 4 “Reflections in Blue.” I am in the process of researching which licensing companies would be the best matches for this particular painting. I hope YOU are inspired!
