Studio Warehouse Sale



I was going to wait until tomorrow to post this but paintings have been selling at a good pace since the official newsletter announcement went out on Wednesday. I am selling off a bunch of older pieces, studies and demos for deeply reduced prices. The fact is I paint and draw almost everyday and many of these paintings have never been to a gallery or have and just never found the right collector.

 I would rather sell them to some appreciative soul than have them sitting in my studio in stacks.
So if you are interested in my work but couldn't afford it you might take a look at what I have for sale. It includes Imaginative and traditional work. All work is sold unframed and I am also offering free shipping in the continental USA. Here is the link to the sale.

If you don't see anything you like right now check back in a few weeks as I will periodically update the sale with more work until the sale deadline.

I'm seeing more and more artists who are starting to sell paintings online out of the studio for much less than they would in a gallery. I myself have been doing it here and there with varied success. I'm wondering if this is a trend, or is going to become the new normal. I know folks like Josh Been are adamant about this being the right way to go to become independently successful financially as a fine artist. I am not sure myself, I am mostly a fan of the gallery scene so I am not willing to go at it completely on my own. But I am taking a look at everyone else's journeys.

I still need Galleries but I have been painting for 30 years now and not all my work has sold over that time. At some point I have to decide what to do with it. The galleries have right of first refusal on my work but once they pass on work and it sits around for a few years I don't see anything wrong with selling it off so someone can enjoy it. My current work still commands decent prices and I still sell through galleries.
I could not paint as much as I do but I like painting and have no plans to slow down willingly. The sale has been going on for only a few days and the response and sales have been very good. We just added a few more smaller pieces to the list and will add more if sales stay brisk.

Better to use whatever methods you can to sell rather than letting your pieces sit in a storage unit somewhere. Keep at selling them wherever and whenever and you just might be able to find someone who's willing to pay you an incredible price..
