It has been a crazy year for us all, this thing we call 2020!
In response we have had to be creative and get a little crazy ourselves
So many events and plans have been canceled and disrupted this year, and it has been true for us too! Many live painting events were canceled or delayed as well as all of the in-person art sales and in-person art sale opportunities to which we were looking forward. As I'm sure you know, art sales are how an artist makes his money. This state of affairs has left us with a bit of an earnings gap - right when we were trying to make arrangements for our first home purchase AND we have recently learned - to our joy - that our fifth little one is on the way!
Well, this is when some good news comes in for you. Since some of these beautiful paintings have not made their way out into the world due to lockdowns and other sundry causes, we have some big plans to release them now, in rapid fashion! Our plan is to auction off one painting per week over the next several weeks with bidding prices starting out at one quarter the sticker price! It'll be like the seasonal flash sales from last year, only bigger and crazier!
So tune in to see if you can nab a steal! Send us an email now or leave a comment below to let us know if there's a particular painting of mine you've been eyeing -- maybe we'll work that one into the rotation for you!
We will likely be testing out different auction methods, starting with an auction-by-email:
We hope this will be fun for you and that it will help us keep moving forward in keeping the Fine Art/Beauty Advocacy dream alive, as well as help us to realize the dream of owning our a home in a crazy time!
And of course, the central dream of the artist is that his works will be hung and enjoyed, giving meaning and communicating life and beauty into a space. I'd much rather that my works be in your home, office, or other space than that they be idling in my studio. A painting is never complete until it has found its place in the world!
