Despite putting a focus on custom paintings over the past 2-3 weeks, I also accumulated enough paintings to have an art sale before I work on the next round of commissions and the next series. We’ll be going to the beach for my parent’s 50th (now 51st) anniversary, so I am planning on focusing my next sale specifically around inspiration I pick up from that trip. Of course, there will be lots of beaches and skies, but I hope to get some pictures of sailboats, lighthouses, and beautiful buildings and street scenes from around Charleston. I’m really excited about creating a collection around one specific theme. Aside from the 100 meadows and 100 still lifes, I am sort of all over the place! I paint whatever inspires me, which could be people, landscapes, still life, a master copy. I don’t want to box myself in too much, but it’s also nice to have a focus.
Several people have asked about commissioning a painting as I’ve been sharing the ones I’ve painted for clients and shared over on Instagram. I have a waiting list at the moment, but I will start accepting new commissions this summer and will have an easy form to complete for those who are interested.
As an aside, I can’t believe this is actually a thing! Wasn’t I just painting furniture four years ago? All I can say is thank you. This would just be a hobby if my blog readers and those who follow my work on social media didn’t support me right from the beginning. It’s humbling and has encouraged me more than I can ever adequately express.
The next sale will launch on May 12, 2021, at 10:00 am CST. I move around the day and time to try to make the sales available to people who work, those who don’t, those in Europe, etc. The sale will go live HERE or you can get there by click “original art” on the navbar. And, we now have a shopping cart feature at the top right of the page for easier checkout! We will continue to tweak the online shop and add features to make it easier to shop as we get feedback and learn. As with the last sale, we will be on an upgraded server, so there shouldn’t be any issues with the site crashing.
Let me know if you have any questions about the sale!
