Late Summer

6"x6" oil on canvas

This piece, which I painted last year, was plucked off the wall just moments ago and into the arms of its new owner. Last year was my best in terms of exposure and sales, and this year is looking even better! It's a great feeling to know that people want your work.....and even better when they buy it! This calls for the happy dance.

River Watch


The New Year doesn't get any better when it starts off with a sale of art within the first week! To top it off, it sold through my studio and not a Gallery. It's nice to occasionally pocket the commission fees for myself. Because the buyer selected it from an image on my website and not in person, I am a little concerned of the discrepancies that will become apparent, as not all monitor calibrations are equal, and I'm not sure what she saw on her end. She won't really know what she's bought until she holds in in her hands. I'm hoping it lives up to the buyers expectations. This is a great start to a New Year!
