Have yourself a loving little Christmas

Christmas tree sketch from 2009 ~ the year is not a misprint : )

This year has been such a mixed one for us, and we’re not alone. So here’s to the New Year 2020 ~ may it be full of love, peace, health, and good times spent with family and friends.

Sale week two

My art sale is into its second week on Etsy. Between now and early December I will be featuring three different paintings every week at 40–60% off the original price. Click on the images to visit my shop.

I will be posting the paintings here on Thursdays when they go on sale. I’m sorry if it’s going to look like spam — this is my attempt at spring cleaning the art cave which is full to bursting with art, art and more art. And I want to make even more art (of course I do) and so something has to go. Preferably several somethings.

I’m also just about to start work on a large painting commission which came through my Etsy shop. I DO like commissions : ) This one is going to be based on one of my mini abstracts. The challenge will be taking something 4 x 4 inches and making it 30 x 40 inches — sounds like fun to me!

Meanwhile, back to business. This week’s sale paintings are:

Wellington Harbour — acrylic on canvas, 455 x 610 mm
Wellington Harbour — SOLD
Springtime
Springtime — SOLD
Peace and Love — acrylic on canvas, 255 x 255 mm
Peace and Love — SOLD

Promises

I’m currently working on an abstract landscape commission but the big reveal will have to wait until my client sees it. She has asked for it to be a surprise and so I can’t even post the  WIPs here because there’s a very good chance she’ll see them.

During the meanwhile, here’s a poem I wrote more than twenty years ago that I rediscovered yesterday…
