Your Artwork is Your Life
Each painting portrays a part of the artist themselves and each one should be documented for the best possible representation.
Why should my artwork be photographed?
You may want to reproduce your work and sell them as limited edition reproductions.
If you are applying to any museum, gallery, grant, or artist in residence you will want to have the best files of your work.
I have a great cell phone isn’t that good enough?
Cell phones can’t usually create large files which are recommended for serious archiving of your work
What else can I do with a high-resolution file?
Make posters, postcards and use for reproduction purposes and for archival.
What else can I do to document my work?
Get a flash drive and put your work on it so that it can be plugged into any computer at any time.
When something has this much value it is wise to have some sort of back up. With this image, you forever have it digitally stored
