Small Artworks: Simple Pleasures, Sweet Treasures

#artistsupportpledge These little gems are selling quickly. Order yours today before they are gone!

UPDATE: These paintings are selling quickly.  Secure yours before they are all gone!

Working small allows an artist to try many ideas in a short amount of time.  These experiments give results quickly, generating prolific creative energy.  Each investigation leads to more questions…  What if I do this?  Can I push that?  How can I control this?  Good results are possible from working small because the artist is freer to express and explore.  Each inquiry stretches the artist, expanding skills and knowledge.

Using a variety of formats, I embarked on small artistic studies delving into color theory, compositional questions, and mark-marking with a variety of brushes.  Each group of studies investigates a set of variables.  All are offered as #artistsupportpledge artworks.

Artist Support Pledge

Artists make their living by showing and selling their art and by teaching art technique workshops or art courses. With the Covid19 pandemic, art centers have been shuttered, galleries closed, exhibitions and classes canceled.  Avenues for generating income closed for artists when the art centers and galleries closed their doors.

British artist, Matthew Burrows conceived of a platform where artists can share and sell their artwork to stimulate the art market and directly benefit other artists.  Through Instagram, artists post images of their work with the pledge that each time the artist makes $1000 in sales, the artist will commit to using 20% of their earnings to purchase another artist’s work.  Burrows’ concept creates a sustainable “micro-culture and economy” to generate income and immediacy.  Along with offering my small artworks on Instagram as part of the Artist Support Pledge, I am also offering them on Facebook and this website.  To learn more, read How a hashtag caused a surge of optimism for artists on Instagram

All my artwork sales in 2020 are offered as part of the #artistsupportpledge.

I have been a lifelong rider and horse lover. I got my first "horse" at a yard sale; it was a pony actually. It was sometime in the early 60's. I was in 3rd or 4th grade. The pony was perhaps $10. My sister, brother, and I pooled our money and led him home. At the time my parents were traveling, and my Uncle Bill promptly made us return it. (stay tuned...more to come...)
