This is a painting from 2016. I sold it through Ugallery which provides the fancy shipping box! Interesting looking back at older work. This one predates my studio which is kind of amazing to me.
I was going to take the day off. I find myself behind and needing to get more work framed and shipped out. Still with the sub freezing temperatures not a bad way to spend the day. I just framed this one and will be shipping it to California tomorrow!
My latest solo show is open at Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California. I am so pleased to have a show at this gallery! This is also my first major exhibit in California.
I will be attending the Second Saturday opening February 9th, it runs 6-9 PM. Photographs reposted from @efgallery.
I am not moving to Australia but these two paintings are! Yesterday afternoon I shipped them off so they have a long voyage ahead.
I have only been to Australia once, many years ago. I went to Sydney which is where these works are going. It is such a beautiful city. I wouldn’t mind taking a trip to Australia now to escape the winter. One of these years I will have to get back!
This is a painting I finished September 14th. Instagram helps me keep track of such trivia!
It was one of three paintings I sold to a nice woman from Kuwait. I have shipped paintings all over the planet but this was the slowest and most worrisome shipment. It arrived in Kuwait City very quickly but then it took about 6 weeks for her to receive it! It all worked out though and she has them hanging together on her wall.
Packing up and shipping a Ugallery sale today. This painting has been in my studio for a couple years now, it will leave a void.
This one has some large sculptural quality to the mark making. It is an interesting piece headed to California just in time to dodge the winter!
I am shipping this painting to Missoula, Montana today. It will be headed to the Radius Gallery, a really great contemporary gallery in downtown Missoula.
Here is a link to some of my work currently at Radius Gallery:
I just shipped this painting off yesterday! It is another Ugallery sale. I have been a Ugallery artist for about a year and a half and have found it to be a great company to work with. They originally contacted me through Instagram (@bsostrom). The gallery promotes your work in various ways. When they make a sale the gallery mails the artist well built packaging and provide prepaid postage online.
It is another source of income and one I need to devote more work to in the future!
I just sold this painting at the McVarish Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. So far about 1/3 of my work has sold from the show. It is a good feeling to sell your art and it helps keep the lights. It does mean I will need more new work for my August show in Pendleton, Oregon!
