black Friday art sale & giveaway

by | Nov 27, 2020 | All Things Home, Art, Artistic Endeavors, Decorating, Oil Painting | 391 comments

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I’m still taking some time off, but I wanted to share just one Black Friday sale for those who are interested.  If you missed the original art sale I had last week, I have added some of my new paintings to Society6 and they are having a Black Friday sale today!  This includes 50% off wall art!

Here are a few of the recent additions for the Black Friday art sale…

abstract landscape pear | black Friday art sale | Marian Parsons fine art | Miss mustard seed

abstract landscape pair 1/2 and 2/2

abstract seascape no. 5 | black Friday art sale | Marian Parsons fine art | Miss mustard seed

abstract seascape no. 5

nice view no 1 | black Friday art sale | Marian Parsons fine art | Miss mustard seed

nice view no. 1

nice view no. 3 | black Friday art sale | Marian Parsons fine art | Miss mustard seed

nice view no. 3

blue nose II schooner painting | black Friday art sale | Marian Parsons fine art | Miss mustard seed

…and Nice View no. 5, which is the Blue Nose II Schooner

I also added some of my older paintings for the Black Friday art sale, like the Pair of Pears and a couple of the barns.

I hope you find something you like if my paintings speak to you and you’re looking to fill up some blank walls.

At this point, I’m just selling art prints in Society6, but I’d like to expand to a few other products when I have the time to design specifically for those projects.  I’m thinking specifically of a color chart wrapping paper!  I would love to have that done in time for Christmas, but that’s not likely.  The list of things I would like to do this holiday season is pretty long…gingerbread houses, hand-painted ornaments, crocheted snowflakes, hand-painted papers.  I’m even smiling as I type this list knowing that I might not fit it all in and that’s okay.

I will be reserving some time for more painting, so I can have another original art sale soon (hopefully before Christmas.)  The support I have received from my followers when it comes to my art has been encouraged me to continue painting with intention and purpose.  I absolutely love doing, but you’re the ones who made it more than just a hobby and I am thankful to each of you for that.

Also, I have a pair of abstract landscape paintings that didn’t make it into the sale, so I thought I would offer them up as a giveaway!

The giveaway is for this pair of 5 x 7 original acrylic/mixed media landscapes…


If you’d like to enter to win, just leave a comment!  The giveaway is open to international readers and will close on Monday, November 30, 2020, at midnight PST.

Good luck!

    I was thinking about your commitment to learn how to paint just the other day. It really got me thinking how we’re so used to quick fixes, instant this and that, that making the time and commitment to learn or improve at something seems almost lost to us. I need to take a leaf out of your book and make the effort. Thank you.

    • Lisa Corsale

      Count me in! Love your work. Hope you get back to doing lessons soon ❤️

  6. Marcia Clark

    Thank you for all the inspiration you provide. My daughter and I followed your blog and made our very own gingerbread house from scratch. Ours came out a little crooked but we had so much fun making it.

  8. Sue Cantrell

  9. Barbara

    Hello. Glad you had some time off and enjoyed thanksgiving. I used an ironstone platter that belonged to my husbands grandmother for our turkey platter, I have not paid much attention to the bottom. It is “Royal Ironstone China, Alfred Meakin. England”. Thank you for sparking my interest. I adore your collection. This is my first comment to you. I have been following you for several months. I absolutely love your house remodel. The colors are those that I have in my master bedroom. I would love to have these colors through out.
