The Gift of Art..a Sale with a Fun Twist

'Gentle Journey'              8x10           pastel           ©Karen Margulis
enter to win this painting. details below
The touch of a loved one. A kiss from a favorite pet. The sight of a beautiful place. There is not much else to compare to the sights, sounds, smells of your happy place. These things soothe the soul. I rank art right up at the top of my list of things that soothe my soul. Making art and looking at art.

I have a few pieces of original art in my home. Paintings from favorite artists that I have collected or traded when the opportunity arose. These paintings are treasures. I never tire of looking at them. I always seem to see something new when I glance at them. I learn from them and they make me smile.

This year I would like to make the gift of art more affordable. Since I am not affiliated with any galleries I am able to set my own prices and while it is sometimes frowned upon in the art world I am going to have a sale!  But a sale with a fun twist.

I have put together a collection of my original paintings of all sizes and I will be offering them at 50% off regular price. The sale prices will be available until midnight on Monday NOVEMBER 30. 

HOW: Visit my Etsy shop Holiday Sale section CLICK HERE FOR SALE  Use the coupon code HOLIDAY50 at checkout to receive the discounted price.

BONUS TWIST:  Everyone who makes a purchase during the sale will be entered into a drawing to win the  8x10 original marsh painting at the top of today's post. Winner will be selected and notified by email next week.

I would love for these paintings to have good homes and spread joy. Thank you for having a look and for taking time to read my blog!

I love reading your blog and trying to learn. I would also love to buy some of your paintings. Unfortunately, I live in Spain and you don't ship internationally. Perhaps you might look into doing so? I understand it's probably a hassle with customs and that it might make shipping expensive, but if you have enough followers abroad it might be an idea.

Thank you Maria! I will be happy to ship international if you don't mind paying the shipping. Contact me for a shipping quote of you see something you like!

Just wondering if you meant the sale runs through Monday Nov 30?

Oh this is beautiful! What a cool idea! I love the painting, it's wonderful. It emanates peace, it is a happy place in its own right. That's one I could lose myself in easily.

One more point to other artists - when you have art by an artist you admire, they're in your home teaching you from then on. I have one of Karen's incredible minis on my wall and I'm still stunned by how much she captured in such a small area and how she created certain textures and small marks, especially with blunt soft pastels.

This sale is a great opportunity. I'm tempted and especially with that prize, the raffle is wonderful. Someone's going to get very lucky!
