Oil on board, 5x7, not for sale
This is one of a number of smaller pieces I've been doing recently, a tactic I think I will continue. It is a way to strengthen my skills, and also to expand my inventory
I usually have paintings ranging from $45 to $1,000 in my shows, so there's usually something for everyone, if they want to buy. Many artists sell prints for more than I ask for my paintings. Whether that's right or wrong, I don't know. I do know that $65 is $65, and that buys groceries or gas or a bunch of plants for the garden.
I'd much rather have an interested person buy a painting than a print. And I think most people would rather have a painting than a print. So we shall see. These seem to sell well, in spurts.
I will be at the Paradise City show in Marlborough, MA, March 18-21. I have never exhibited at this show, and am honored to have been juried in. It's a very high-end art and craft show, at the Royal Plaza Trade Center. Click here to go to the website, get directions and see a sample of the fabulous stuff in the show!
Honestly, you could have knocked me over with a feather when I found out I was accepted!
