Let's talk about "series"

Here is a series I created entitled “Germination.” It is easy to see why they belong in a collection together - the subject matter of course, but also how i’ve mounted them (wooden canvases of the same size). One of the easiest ways to create continuity in a collection is to make the presentation consistent.

Name your collection/series. These are “Mystery Specimens” and each time I make another one of these odd creatures, it gets the same title, so the series can be ongoing... forever!

As of course it should! who doesn't want a weirdo in a test tube, right?

But it does go to show the value of making a series - the anticipation of wondering what will be added and when. Keeping people wanting more is one of the perks of being an artist.

Let's look at another one.
