I am blessed and surprised! I was wondering if the Instagram platform would work for sales. I just sold 2 paintings for $1,100 !
I sold a lot of pieces in the last 2 months leading up to Christmas. It has been fun and a good for my ego 🙂
So, my wife and I sold 10 paintings at the Cedar Ranch Show. I have been taking an online course from Rusty Jones, and my wife has been auditing the class. We did a lot of 5×7 demos, I did several 8×10’s and we sold 10 pieces including a large piece I did on my own a year ago called the Tree in Monterey. This is the first successful show since the bain of Covid.
This painting was from a dream I had. It was experimental in the use of Acrylics diluted to the consistency of watercolors. There is a set of houses on the outcrop with a wonderful view of the landscape.
“After the Flood”
Wimberley 2015 on the Blanco
While searching for a lost dog near our water park on the Blanco, I found an empty 15” x 30″ picture frame stuck up in a tree – right across the river from where Mr. McComb was rescued. I thought I should do a painting to fill the frame and donate it to flood relief. I took a picture of the devastation nearby. Through the stripped cypress trees I saw a tattered American flag draped over the debris in the background… I felt it was a sign of hope amidst the loss.
Auctioned for the Benefit Artists for Flood Relief 100 @ $100 This painting was used for advertising the event and was auctioned off for over $400. Raised over $40,000 for flood relief on June 27th, 2015.
Big Sur was entered and accepted at the Wimberley Art League, a juried show, held at the Community Center, Wimberley, Texas from Jan through February 23rd, 2016.
Big Sur was sold to a retired teacher who used to take her classes to the Big Sur area.
