I know, I know. One of the things that artists keep cautioning against is reducing your prices or having a sale or anything of the sort. The idea being that it cheapens your work. I get that. I just don’t buy it.
You buy a work of art because (1) you like it and (2) you can afford it. If you couldn’t afford it you wouldn’t skip a meal to buy a painting right? Well, I mean if you do, I really need to meet you! There are certain time of the year when people are looking for small gifts and I don’t think it cheapens my art if I can make small works and sell them on these occasions for a lower price.
So, if you are still reading this post, I would like to share with you a secret gallery that I have put on my website where you can buy small works of art (5”x7” or 5”x5”) all priced at $45.00 and all matted and ready to put in an 8”x10” or an 8”x8” frame of your choice. I am adding new small paintings to this gallery daily… almost… and you should visit often to find the one you like. But here is the deal, you need to make your choice soon if you want the painting shipped to your address at my expense before Christmas. After December 15, I can’t guarantee that you will get it in time. At that stage you will need to have it shipped by courier and I will need to charge you for that expense. So if I may suggest, visit the gallery and make your choice as soon as possible.
Why am I doing this? Because I love the season and I really want to encourage art lovers to buy authentic art and avoid posters, prints and made-in-China art. At $45.00 these works are priced below what I would normally sell them for, but come December 25, the hidden gallery will go the Brigadoon way and will not come back until next year (I am referencing Brigadoon because most of you are too young to remember the movie!).
Enjoy REAL art! And Merry Christmas!
