Time for a change in scenery!
Every art magazine I read tells you not to do this. But I am the kind of person that has grown up thinking of clever ways to get things that are beyond my range, or create something similar that is pleasing to the eye. I have exactly two original paintings by other artists, both from Minnesota. One is a small watercolor, a floral, and the other is a large abstract acrylic by one of my teachers. She marked her paintings down by half for her students. There was one that caught my eye every day, and I loved it. Literally. I fell in love and it was all over. I thought, I will never be able to afford to buy it at its original price. Even the student discount was over my budget. So, I scanned my brain for something, anything, that I could celebrate so I could get this painting. And, fortunately, one popped up. For my husband, but also for me indirectly. Luckily he loves abstracts. So, long story short, we are moving. We have sold our house. I have quite a few paintings I would like to pass along rather than move. Catch my drift? If you have been hankering for one of my paintings, but it's just a bit too high. Go to my Painting-A-Day purchase tab and click on the Etsy widget. Beginning on September 15 through September 30 you will find some great surprises. Also, all shipping and handling is wrapped into the price for these two weeks.
