Today we had our local artists group and I printed out and showed them the business cards … I have them pretty much ready for printing … the files set up correctly and all. But 3 different people don’t like the Buddha/Quan Yin image in the business card. So it wasn’t that they don’t like the image.

Two of them absolutely love the “In the Garden” Quan Yin image. For the local little show we put together today they gave it the spot as you walk into the room. But they wanted things such as … throw out all the words on the back (like the contact info and such) and put the whole back as the image. Obviously that is not going to happen.

People like the idea of the image of the cat there because they say the colors work better. Now I now I have to be the one most happy with this and I will follow my heart, but I am asking for one more round of input. They said that the two images on the left are alike and so Quan Yin doesn’t work.
I say, the painting on the left is very much like quilting, the middle a smooth pastel with little detail, and the one of the right is very different – Quan Yin in a digital painting. Now the colors in the cat clash for me with the other 2 paintings … they just don’t go. Now everyone else said they went together. They are together on the wall of the show – I can live just fine with that!
I could change my mind. Sometimes I hate something and then like it. So that is why I am asking you to please help me think one more time. You have been so so helpful before in helping me sort out what I want. I would greatly appreciate your feedback so I can make a decision. Thank you!!!
Tomorrow Susan should have her post up about her cards ….
