Clockwise, from top left, "Two Houses," "Tall House," "Maine Marsh."
All are minimally framed (see Tall House), all are $65, including shipping.
In 2018, I'm going to have a selection of small pieces - oils and pastels - available at prices below $75. I'm working on creating them now, and I'm enjoying the challenge enormously.
It's tougher for me to paint small than to paint large! But as I work on these, I'm learning. One problem I haven't solved yet is how to place these to dry, without taking up all the flat space in the studio! I can hang my wet paintings on canvas, but these can't hang until they are framed. Clearly, I need some shelf space in the studio.
I'm offering a palette-knife-painting workshop in Onancock, here on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, on Jan. 20, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. You'll learn to work with a heavy impasto, be bold and decisive in your painting, and have some fun with color, too. The cost of the workshop is $95; it's limited to 10 participants. To sign up, email me, or check out the Workshop page on the Jacobson Arts website; there's a PayPal button there.

It's Lulu, a/k/a Princess Yum-Yum, in a cool lid. It was on her about one second past this photo. While Lulu looks great in hats, she'd rather eat them than wear them.
A Final Thought
"Self-consciousness is the enemy of all art, be it acting, writing, painting,
or living itself, which is the greatest art of all."
- Ray Bradbury
