SAGUARO MANDALA 1 AS FREE DOWNLOAD


ARTIST STATEMENT ON FREE DOWNLOADS

I am beginning a new blog site to offer free 8.5"x11" free downloads of many of my images including the most popular ones. They are available for you as 200 dpi resolution downloads. I create everything in 300 dpi, but downloading at that resolution would create very large files, bigger than most people want to download. I have them set up for 8.5"x11" for home printing. If you want larger sizes, or you want images on products such as t shirts and mugs, then go to my Zazzle gallery @:
http://zazzle.com/robert_coyne
*******
My idea in offering these free images is that you will want to have larger ones and will go to Zazzle where I make a small profit. Most of my pictures are designed to look best at poster size of 23"x34.5", but they also look good at smaller sizes. I have even made some into postage stamps which are also available on Zazzle.
*******
I can do custom orders. As I explain on my parent blog, many images can be done as murals; but I could design some as business card logos. The possibilities are endless. Use your imagination and let me make it real for you.
*******
I am offering some designs as greeting and note cards including the insides. If you want them custonized, let me know. I figure that every card you send, every print you put on a wall, is free advertising for me; so feel free to share in a non-commercial manner. You can buy envelopes to fit the card sizes at any office supply store.
*******
In offering these downloads, I am trying to give my art a wider exposure and give my customers free samples of my work. All rights are reserved. You may e mail images to friends and relatives or make copies for free, but that does not give you permission to reproduce for profit.
*******
If you think you could print and market these images for profit, contact me to make arrangements for distribution. I would be happy to arrange marketing rights or to even work for a company already marketing cards, gifts, calendars and so on. I have many ideas for future designs and continue to improve. Anyone would be better off working with me than trying to steal from me, as I am affordable. I love creating the designs and want to make them widely availale at affordable prices.
*******
I make my living operating a board & care home, so this is a sideline. I am, however, very productive and could fill most any design demands you might have. I would also be willing to work with other designers. I offer two tutorial blogs in which I show how to make the digital mandalas. I think this type of design is a natural outgrowth of the new digital technology and would like to promote its development and growth in general.
*******
I may be reached by e mail at: nightbloomingcards@gmail.com
*******
From there, I can give further contact information as appropriate.
ENJOY!

SAGUARO MANDALA 1 AS NOTECARD


I have turned Saguaro Mandala 1 into a notecard and added the poem, King of the Desert to go inside.
This can also be done as a larger greeting card.

RAINBOW FRAME 1 WITH EINSTEIN QUOTE

I have been surprised by how many, what I would call spiritual statements, have been attributed to Einstein. For those of you who like psychedelic colors, I offer this rainbow flower frame.
Of course, this frame can be paired with other sayings and the quote matched with other borders.

RAINBOW MANDALA 1 WITH POEM

I added the poem to this one for use in my calendars. This could be converted to a card design easily, and I will do so at your request. REFERENCE: i 117 t73

MORNING PRAYER WITH BARREL CACTUS FRAME 2

I have given you both the image and text previously, but this is a new cimbination of the two which gives you an idea of the varied possibilities which are available.

OLEANDER FRAME 1 WITH PRAYER OF ST FRANCIS

This is a new frame paired with a text we have given previously. All this can be mixed and matched as you wish. REFERENCE: i 116

BOUGANVILLIA FRAME 1 WITH IRISH BLESSING

Again, this border can be used with other texts. I have previously given you three Irish Blessings which you can find by reviewing the contact sheets provided. I will probably be adding to them in time. REFERENCE: i 115

NIGHTBLOOMING CACTUS FRAME 4 WITH GIBRAN

Of course, this border can be used with other texts, but I like this one by Kahlil Gibran. REFERENCE: i 114

PINK DAISY FRAME 4 WITH CHARITY

REFERENCE: i 113

BARREL CACTUS BORDER 2 WITH DESIDERATA

My seventh calendar includes several texts bordered in new flower frame, so I want to show them to you here. These could be done as prints or posters; or in some cases, cards.
REFERENCE: i 112

PINK TREE BELLS COMPOSITE 7

As you can see, I have been busy in my absence. If there are any other kind of flowers that you want to see as a composite like this, let me know. I will be happy to accomodate. Enjoy. REFERENCE: i 111

Look for me to be creating more of these in the future, but I hope you will agree that this collection is a nice start. REFERENCE: i 104

SAGUARO CACTUS FLOWER COMPOSITE 1

This is my favorite. As you can tell, I am enthralled with color; but white flowers have always had a special appeal for me. REREENCE: i 103

BARREL CACTUS COMPOSITE 4

I think my images stand well by themselves, but from the beginning; I have felt that they are even better in sets. Box sets of cards was my first way of offering groups of images. Calendars are another great way to show the related images together. REFERENCE: i 102

BARREL CACTUS COMPOSITE 3

This is one of my personal favorites. It is included in one of my calendars. On Zazzle, I have posted 7 calendars which have 42 images between them. You can create your own calendar by telling me which 12 images you want on a calendar. Pretty cool, sin't it? REFERENCE: i 101

NIGHTBLOOMING CACTUS COMPOSITE 7

It has been awhile since I have posted anything new here. I have been putting together what turned out to be 7 calendars which are posted on my Zazzle gallery. Most of the calendars feature mandala designs, but the fifth in the series is made up of 12 flower composite images of which this is my signature piece. These flower composite designs with the symmetrical arrangements of the blossoms are easy to creat in Photoshop. I think they are both interesting and esthetically pleasing and I wonder that others are not doing these. It seems to be an natural conception of the technology.
*******
I have also put some of these images on coffee mugs which are also posted on the Zazzle store. I plan to do some as cards and postage stamps as well. I can print cards myself or they may be purchased as customizble versions on Zazzle.
