I have a few too many of my old paintings sitting here. So, I'm announcing several auctions to begin very soon! These 3 will be first! There's a theme here - small paintings that would look great in your kitchen or dining room! They are original, oil on canvas - and are ready to frame.
The great thing about an auction is that the prices start very low, at a fraction of what this size painting usually sells. The end price is never a certainty ... but there's the possibility that you can buy an original painting for very little. I hope you'll participate!

Its not too early to start thinking of that perfect gift for Christmas giving! And you can be quite sure that the hard-to-buy-for person on your list doesn't already have this! These are 1 of a kind, and will always be that!

Stay tuned!! The auction will begin in a few days!

It's Time to Join My Email List!!

The Latest Give Away from my Studio!

This week, I gave away 12 small prints of a Japanese Iris! The offer I made was very simple. It was sent to everyone on my email list ~ for the first 12 responders I will send a free small print of the flower above. Nothing more! It was only offered to those who are on my mailing list, and of course I am encouraging anyone, everyone, to invite their friends to join us! So, this small print give away is over, but there will be more things coming soon!

So today, I'm sending these little prints from Nova Scotia to Hawaii!! As a way of saying thank you for being interested and watching the work that comes from my studio! I like to do these kinds of things from time to time. Its fun for me and I think its fun for those who participate!

So, if you are here reading this blog - maybe its time to join us!? Its easy. Just go to the box at the right of my blog and put your email address in. You will hear from me, though I will not flood your inbox. I will send updates on news from my studio, previews of my work, and occasional drawings and contests with give aways and fun ways to interact from afar!
And just so you know, your information is held it tightest confidence - it is never shared!
