LADY LYNDY SORCERESS OF LIGHT

CASTING SPELLS OF LOVE & LIGHT
WITH THE MAGICK OF AUTUMN


*LADY LYNDY SORCERESS OF LIGHT*
*WHEN LIGHTNING STRUCK ON ONE HALLOWEEN NIGHT*
*DEAR ABBY & ELVIRA BECAME ONE WITH THE LIGHT*
*HAUNTINGLY YOURS, LADY LYNDY*

Each of the Four Sacred Seasons: Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, Autumnal Equinox & Winter Solstice, Dear Lady Lyndy will present for your viewing pleasure answers to your questions received through blogging comments &/or email.

The Autumnal Equinox celebration has come & disappeared so quickly. This is a Spooktacular Autumn Season with Halloween Magick in the air. Lady Lyndy's seasonal Autumnal Equinox Topic(s) are right on the money: THE TRUE MEANING OF OOAK ART WORK TO THE SPOOKY FINANCIAL CRUNCH FOR EVERYONE, ESPECIALLY STARVING ARTISTS.

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
I've been told that my black cat art work is not OOAK, because I painted a similar black cat with a moon from a vintage Halloween postcard that was published in 1910. My art work has different colors, extra black cats & painted on a wooden plaque. Is this OOAK or not?
ELIZABETH FROM SALEM OREGON

DEAR ELIZABETH FROM SALEM OREGON,
Yes your art work is OOAK. If you created an OOAK work of art from vintage postcards or vintage Halloween decorations from before 1923 than you created a OOAK work of art. No artist can lay claim to vintage postcard/decorative art that is out of copyright. 'Vintage Style' is today's Halloween art work.

****************************

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
I painted an original Halloween black cat with witches art work from one of my peers idea in a different medium. I added some minor changes to the format. Is this OOAK?
BAD TO THE BONE

DEAR BAD TO THE BONE,
AND you really are, actually I'd say you're a COPY CAT Artist! Your Halloween black cat art work is not OOAK! If you copied exactly an OOAK work of art from one of your peers either in the same medium or different medium with some minor changes than you have committed copyright infringement.

****************************

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
I've used stencils that were custom made for me on my Halloween art work. Every art work is different. Never the same twice & I add depth to the stencils so that they do not look like any stencils have been utilized. Is using a custom made stencil considered OOAK?
MS. HARRINGTON HALLOWEENVILLE

DEAR MS. HARRINGTON HALLOWEENVILLE,
The funny thing is even if you used custom made stencils for your artwork, but added more than 50% to reflect your own concept in most OOAK Art World's this is still considered Original. OOAK means Original One Of A Kind, meaning not another exact art piece was created. It should be stated on the COA or art sale/auction that you have custom made stencils that you have incorporated on the art work.

* MORE OOAK ARTWORK EXAMPLES:
(These rules are used when the artist is you & not interpreting another's art work).
* An exact blue sky art piece & a red sky art piece would be considered OOAK.
* An exact black cat on a bowl & the same black cat on a plate is not OOAK, it must have added embellishments.
* Different brush strokes or acrylic VS. water color on the same exact piece on different mediums is not considered OOAK.
* Larger VS. smaller on the same exact piece is not considered OOAK.
* Different colors is considered OOAK, but really should have different embellishments.

****************************

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
My husband was just laid off & I'm a starving artist. I was wondering if I should quit creating art work & get a real job?
PATTY BAKER

DEAR PATTY BAKER,
First & foremost I'm so sorry about your husband losing his job. If you have to get steady employment, than you should. AND so should your husband. In today's failing economy any employment to help make ends meet is imperative. You should never give up creating your art work. This could be considered a second source of income through Internet sites like eBay auctions & online stores or listings like Etsy. Every little bit helps to pay the bills.

****************************

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
Are you still buying OOAK Halloween black cat art work for your collection or black cat art books? If so, what were your October 2008 OOAK Halloween art work purchases? How many OOAK Halloween black cat art works have you invested in & how long have you been collecting?
OCTOBER GIRL

DEAR OCTOBER GIRL,
The economy has caused us to budget our investments. Nevertheless, I'm always collecting OOAK Halloween black cat art work with more discernment. As for my Halloween Black Cat Art Book, yes I'm still adding a few more beautiful black cat pieces. My collection has grown to over 250 black cat art works & I've only been collecting OOAK Halloween black art work for 2 1/2 years.
