The Gift of Art....Virtual Open Studio Sale

'Sanibel is Calling'                8x10              pastel          ©Karen Margulis
available $145 click here

My studio will be lonely this month. My classes have wrapped up for the year and I don't have my annual Open Studio to prepare for. I will miss that.  It just didn't work out this year. The group tour didn't get organized in time. I loved having my Open Studio. Not only did it allow me to meet other artists and collectors, it forced me to clean the studio and get organized!

So this year I will take my open studio online!  This will be a Virtual Open Studio.  You can click on the tab at the top of the page to visit my studio. You can also purchase my original pastel paintings for a special Open Studio price.

Visit my Etsy shop to see the selection of available paintings. There are small to large paintings, all original pastels. For a limited time you can apply the code GIVEART14 for a 20% savings.

In a real life Open Studio I would have the opportunity to meet you and discuss my work in person. Since this is a virtual tour....I'd love for you to introduce yourself in the comments! Thank you for visiting my blog...and my studio!

Wow! Loved the studio tour. You have so much space! I had to smile at your pastels sitting out. Didn't realize you were using a 63 color Unisons half stick set for minis - that's awesome. You gave me a good idea of the size of the box setting it out like that with a mini.

I thought I had a lot of supplies! Your big tray is fantastic. Had to laugh, you lay it out the opposite of mine, I like having darks nearer me and reaching over them to the lights but it's organized more or less the same way as my Dakota Traveller.

Beautiful paintings and home too. Looks comfortable and the porch is cool. All I missed was meeting Jennifur. You know if I came to your real Open Studio I would be all over her and bring cat treats and sketch her from life. Give her a scritch for me and tell her she's got a fan.

Off to drool at what's for sale. I meant to comment on the page with the studio tour but couldn't find a comment list.

Also, I forgot to tell you how much more beautiful the mini I bought is in person. Your packaging was great - the post awful banged up the outer package but the art arrived perfect because of how you did that. I had no idea of its richness or fine detail. I'm awed. Whole layers of trees in the distance weren't visible in the photo, with incredible detail, yet not overwhelming in person. The complexity is suitable for a much larger painting yet it's perfectly within scale, gorgeous at a distance too. The colors are so rich.

Even good photos never do justice to real art once it's in your hands. Thank you again for doing these!

Hello Karen! I have been reading your blog for a few months now and you are wonderful and so faithful posting almost every day. Just wanted you to know that you are so inspiring. I've just gotten into drawing and have taken 2 classes locally. I want to get into soft pastels, but I have unexpectedly fallen in love with oil pastels after being introduced to them by my drawing teacher a few months ago. I haven't given up on soft pastels, though and would love to take a class from you sometime. Keep up the good work and know that Iook forward to reading your blog every day. Crystal V. from East TN
