[singlepic id=170 w=320 h=360 float=left]A lot can happen in five years. For me, the last five years have brought eighteen art fairs, eight solo shows, three new series, four different framing styles, a new medium and an ongoing string of group exhibitions. One inevitable result of all of this activity, as it turns out, is orphans. Orphaned paintings, I mean. Orphans appear for many reasons. Maybe they are part of an old series and look out of place with my newer work. Maybe they went on the road a few times too many, and ended up with a damaged frame. Maybe they are in a perfectly good frame from three frame styles ago, and now look odd in my booth. Maybe they were shown several times, or maybe not at all, before I was on to the next new thing.
Regardless of how they got there, all of these paintings now sit in storage, waiting for homes. Normally this would be the time I would have a studio sale. But if you've ever actually seen my studio, you know why this is not exactly practical. I can barely fit myself and my current artwork in the 10' x 11' room I call my studio, let alone sale merchandise, customers and a table of wine and hors d'oeuvres.
So I'm doing the next best thing: a virtual studio sale. Well, parts of it will have to be virtual anyway. Like the wine. But the art is very real, and I will be offering it for sale here on my site. At the right under Pages, you'll see a new page titled, appropriately, "Studio Sale." This link takes you to all my posted sale items, each with a Paypal button for easy purchasing.
All artwork offered in the Studio Sale will be shipped matted and ready to frame. Prices are comparable to unframed work I sell in my art fair booth. Every piece is an original, hand made, one-of-a-kind work of art.
Go ahead and take a look. I hope you find something you like, and can give one of my babies a home.
