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, talking about art, reading about art and of course.....looking at art.
I wrote this last year and it means even more in 2020. It has been a tumultuous year for everyone. We all long for normal times but I see everyday that we free forward and art is one of the things that continues to give pleasure and hope. Going down into my studio and painting every day and sharing with my fellow artists in my Patreon group, on YouTube and here on my blog has been my escape.
I have also enjoyed looking at other art especially on Instagram and facebook. It is a relaxing way to unwind! I do 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 once again 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! This is a sale to say THANK YOU and it is a sale with a 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 December 4th.

BONUS TWIST: Everyone who makes a purchase during the sale will be entered into a drawing to win a 9x12 original painting. Winner will be selected and notified by email at the conclusion of the sale.
