Yet Another Happy Customer - and Friend

Georgellen bought several paintings from me.  This latest one....The Pumpkin Truck is an 8 X 6 inch acrylic on 140 lb watercolor paper.  It was all of $20.00.



and here is the picture she sent me after it was framed.  I think it looks great and she loves the painting too.  (she said the mat is actually lavender but didn't photograph well)

I love to make my customers happy....but I'm even happier when the customer is also a friend!

Janice is both a customer and friend. She purchased two paintings from my Daily Paintworks gallery not long ago.  She couldn't wait to get them and have them framed so they could hang in her home.  Here are the paintings:



Both were only 15.00 and size 5 X 7 inch watercolors.  I got an email of her paintings after they were framed:


She hasn't decided where she wants to hang them but she bought two original watercolors from me for less than the price of a print and now that they're framed, they look great!

A Word to Collectors of Original Art and Those New to Original Art

I know there are many of you who hesitate to buy directly from artists but the ones I've dealt with on Daily Paintworks are a good bunch.  They, myself included, depend on sales to keep us going.  I know in my case, my prices are ridiculously small.  That's because I love to paint and, at my age, I have no goals to reach.  I'm retired, in my 70's and just look to make some extra money to supplement my retirement.  Support art...without it, our world would be a crude, rude place.

You have no idea how good and how different original art looks in your home.  I've countless emails from satisfied customers who were unaware they could get good original art for less then the price of a print.  Please take a stroll through my Daily Paintworks gallery and see for yourself.

Recently, I spent the day at a local arts festival.  People looked through my work and said "got any roosters?"  No, didn't have a one...so I set out to rectify the situation.  My latest work is a large (for me) 11 X 14 canvas panel entitled "The Boss". :-)


Perfect for a country kitchen or dining area.  You can check out the Daily Paintworks auction for this original, one of a kind piece:

Toys? Just Because

I firmly believe that an artist can paint almost anything and continually challenge myself to do just that.  This one is called Watchful Toys.  It seems when stuffed toys that you simply took off the floor and put on a couch or chair seem to be watching whatever is going on.

Why?

Many people have asked me why my paintings are so reasonable. They are sure I put more work into them then I am charging for. Well, when I do a special painting like Night and Day or Toward the Light, yes, I charge what I feel they're worth. Most of my paintings now are small. I can paint them fast and I can enjoy painting them. I want them to sell and I want them to sell fast so I can paint some more. Truth is by the time I pass on (I'm 74 years old) I want thousands of my paintings out there for people to enjoy I have already sold over 3,000 on Ebay from 1998 to present.  Perhaps, for a second they will remember me. I have had people contact me to ask if I painted this or that...one from the 1970's was left a painting by a relative.  Yes, it was mine and I remembered it well and even remembered the person who bought it from me at an art show in New Jersey.

My goal is not to be famous...that happens about as often as a singer or performer becomes world famous...which is not often at all. Out of the thousands upon thousands of artists in the world, only a few become famous and command high prices. Long ago, I gave up that dream and instead simply enjoy my painting and my paintings. If, sometime after I'm gone these paintings happen to become famous well, then that's a treat for the buyer. Like most elderly people, I'm happy with what I have.

I hope you enjoy my paintings and will visit my gallery on Daily Paintworks.

A Painting Dedicated to My Favorite Hobby....Tatting

Tatting is not the making of tattoos as some folks have asked me. It is a very very old craft of making lace with a shuttle. This painting shows a bit of lace, a red shuttle with thread and my favorite embroidery scissors. If you have always wanted to know about tatting, go to my website: Tatting Just for You where you will find free instructions. A good little video showing the making of the illusive double stitch and many free patterns. If you want more, my tatting books full of original easy patterns are available for sale.
