Hidden

I just signed, varnished, framed and added a wire hanger to this 14″x11″ painting. I am going through the process of finalizing my latest collection of works for the next show. So many details go into each exhibit, well beyond the painting.

Next I will photograph everything and create a catalog of the works for the Pendleton Center for the Arts!

Shipping work

I am excited to be mailing off more work to Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California. I have been sending work there for more than a year now and it is nice to have another venue for my paintings.

I am doing a final coat of varnish on these paintings before I ship them to California. I have struggled over the years with the best way to seal my acrylic paintings. Acrylic tends to stick to acrylic so if you do not varnish the work you will end up with a mess at some point! I am currently using Liquitex professional high gloss varnish. So far I am very pleased as it dries quickly and creates a really nice protective layer!

Elliott Fouts Gallery 

I am pleased to be sending off five new paintings to the Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California. I have been selling work there since the end of 2016. This is an example of instagram having a real benefit rather than simply an ego booster. The gallery saw my work on instagram and reached out to me. They have been really great to work with and hopefully I will make it down there one of these days to see their gallery in person!

James May Gallery

I mounted three small water paintings I did for a water themed show at the James May Gallery. This gallery is in Algoma, Wisconsin, a beautiful part of the country. The town is in Door County, I have only been there one time but hope to go back! For now my paintings will be making the visit for me.

These three paintings are 10″x10″ acrylic/open acrylic on plexiglass. I am mounting them on deep cradled boards to give them a bigger presence!

Welcome to April!

Four Small Works

I just posted these 10″x 10″ paintings on Ugallery. It is an art website that sells and markets artwork. They take a 50% commission but they also do help get your work seen. As paintings pile up I am starting to look at more ways to sell my work. I really enjoy having my paintings in a physical gallery but these days there are a lot of other options!
