Ok! the painting marathon is over.... time to kick back and enjoy "key west time" for the next several days before heading back up to NC. i've basically had around two or three days off since getting here. had a great time painting from sun up to sun down, stayed warm, scheduled a date for me to teach a workshop here next winter. taught some private lessons, picked up a great gallery that i'm honored to be a part of, sold one in there already too! stayed warm, and sold a bunch of the little gems online, and stayed warm this winter. oh did i say that already. now its time to slow down now that fifteen paintings have been delivered to the gallery for the new season. i might go standup paddleboarding, or kiteboard some, or just go hang out on the beach. cant wait to get back to mine and i think they said it was like 70 today up there! springs on the way.
hope you got some of the $50 blog pieces while i was offering them because those were my last that i will be selling that low ever again. i'm going to concentrate very hard on not posting everything i do and putting $50 on all of it. i get a really good one and i think man,,,, i cant believe i'll only get $50 for this... it took as long as an 8x10 does and for substantially less money. ive put my miles and miles of canvas in, painting like a maniac for several years now, and now i'm going to slow the pace and do work that will be desirable to those who know a good painting and dont mind paying $20-$50 extra bucks for a nice little gem. there are still tons of daily painters out there who'll paint something for $50 but they arent in over a dozen galleries up and down the eastern seaboard either. just trying to explain that i've got to start making the little ones pay their own way, time/money-wise, and pricing them $75-$100 will go a long way towards that goal.
i want to paint really nice stuff and not give it away, thats all. this will require me to NOT post EVERY piece i paint (like i have been), so that will inevitably drop the amount of paintings sold, but i'm bettin i'll make up for it with really good small ones that sell for $75 and $100 (depending on how much time i spend on it).
still a steal when you consider what a few extra inches would cost you were i selling it framed in a gallery with rent,payroll, lights and other overhead, right? hey... we all gotta make a living!
so dont give up on me over $25-$50 ok? i promise you'll continue to get what you pay for LOL
