2Hivelys Art has been on the Internet since 2008. All works are produced digitally. We capture beautiful images with digital cameras, then process them using computer software. Most photos are left as is with only slight enhancements. Some photos are used as a starting place for digital paintings & artwork. Digital painting is very much like using paint, just not as messy or smelly. You will see brushstrokes in our paintings just like with “real” paintings. We use a stylus pen & tablet with which to paint or sketch.
We have partnered with several print on demand services on the Internet to offer our artwork for sale. Fine Art America offers several types of prints, greeting cards & now pillows & phone cases. Red Bubble also offers prints, greeting cards, t-shirts, & several other new products such as pillows, totes, mugs & duvet covers. On Zazzle.com you will find thousands of products with original work from 2Hivelys Art & thousands of other artists.
The 2nd Hively creates the art...
Now that we have a pool of thousands of photos. The 2nd Hively (me!) has the job of sorting through everything. I think deciding what to do with the photos is the most fun. They can be used as is, or have the color enhanced or change it completely till the original photo is unrecognizable. I also create the designs to use on t-shirts, greeting cards & all the other products available. We have over 10,000 products available on Zazzle.com alone. I’ve been very busy!
