Recent Artwork Sales
I went on vacation to Prince Edward Island last week and sold more art on my website then ever. The previous two months were very slow with the political conventions and Olympics grabbing everyone’s attention but golly gee, I should go on vacation more often.
I’m really happy to see some of my more experimental artwork sell. Abstracts and some playful experimentation. These usually take place in the dead of winter when the son is off at school, the wife is off at work and the snow has covered up all of the yard work. The wood stove is filled and I have a chance to just play around with images.
The other thing that was neat, and keeps me going is the were some really large print sales as well as some beautiful framing choices made by the buyers. I appreciate every sale I make but I certainly enjoy seeing the framing choices buyers make.
This abstract image of New York City fire escapes was created with multiple layers and abstracted into the lines created by the ladders. Unfortunately these scenes of pre-war NYC are under constant threat of “progress” these days. This is how a recent collector purchased this image. A 16 x 16 inch image with a nice deep white mat and smart looking white frame. Very modern yet classic at the same time.
This cute pug dog image was purchased as a 14.000″ x 8.250″ canvas print with a frame surround of Last Call is going to to a buyer from Cutler Bay, FL. Seems a bit on the small size but maybe the buyer has limited wall space or its a gift.
This 42.875″ x 60.000″ print of Gunman T-shirt to a buyer from Skanes Fagerhult, Skane – Sweden is probably the largest canvas I’ve ever sold. Funny thing is that I intended it to be a t-shirt design but it will certainly have a lot of impact as a huge wall canvas. The design is based on one of my photographs.
I won’t show the final result because its a canvas and looks pretty much the same as the above. Oh how I’d love to see it displayed! Maybe if the buyer is out there somewhere they will send me a photograph of it in place. Unfortunately we don’t get any contact information when selling through a print on demand site.
Also this month I sold a huge metal print of this image of a beach in Maui, Hawaii. Our family trip to Hawaii from a few years ago certainly tugs at me especially in the middle of a New England winter. This was a 48.000″ x 17.875″ metal print of Where I Want To Be going to a buyer from San Francisco, CA.
