I am taking a break from packing today just to let folks who might not know already that I am MOVING to the BAY AREA!! Yes.. Portland has been a good transition and I feel that I was guided to be here for the past 6 years. There are many reasons I now feel guided to move south. One is that I am in need of more sun, and I think the artistic climate of the bay will benefit me.
I could use some extra moving cash, so it’s a fitting time to put a lot of my older, heavier, and more fragile works at huge discounts. I am also selling some newer smaller pieces at low prices. To make things easy for potential collectors, I’ve separated the pages on my website for paintings above $300 and paintings below $300. This is a really good time to invest in my career by helping me through my move while getting a really good deal on my art! I expect a larger market for my art in the bay, so this is a rare opportunity to buy my original art at these low prices.
For those of you who are not able to collect original artworks, it’s also a great time to get some jewelry or prints of my art. I’ve recently added a whole new line of vintage style pendant necklaces. I am pretty excited about these. They combine the 30mm or 30x40mm oval glass cabochon glass with distinctively styled settings of your choice. Each are paired with antique style chains with your choice of clasp. The chains normally hang mid-chest, but can be customized to your desired length.
I’ve also updated the section of my site for my wire-wrapped pendants. The ones that I am now selling are slightly smaller than those that I was selling last year, and they are also more perfect circles, with no flaws. All designs have varied color choices, using silver, gold or copper metallic leaf. The glass measures 30mm diameter (1-1/8″). Each pendant is paired with your choice of matching 18″ cable choker or serpentine chain. (I’ve just added all of my new versions of these pendants to the site, but I haven’t had time to add the oval or triangle-shaped ones that you see in the image to the right. If you’d like to request one, just send me a note).
I’ve also added some new cards to the site. These are the most recent:
For the “Buddha Garden” you have a choice of a cropped or full version of the painting. The other 3 cards have the option of text across the card (all cards are blank). I will be adding these 4 images as 8×10 prints soon.
Well, as you can see I’ve been spending a LOT of time on website updates lately and it is now time for me to get packing! Once I land in the bay area, I plan to be very busy selling my work to stores, in street fairs and in galleries. If anyone is aware of stores or galleries that you think would be a good fit for me (anywhere in the US), please send me a message. This is the year of the dragon, and I’m expecting big changes in my career!
