Barbara Muir © 2009An artist friend of mine wants me to put prices on everything
I display on my blog, Facebook and Instagram, but I prefer
to mention prices occasionally, when the mood hits me.
But maybe she's right, and this should be the Month of Sales.
I do have set prices for different sizes of work, and I'm happy
to discuss them with you if you contact me via email or
Facebook, or Instagram messaging. But let's just start with
the price of one work.
This beautiful woman in Before the Dance in the red dress, is
part of my Before the Dance series. The painting was created 10
years ago, and the model is the daughter of a former neighbour --
a brilliant young woman just starting to grow up and go to university
when she posed for me for several paintings. The title of this
series incorporated the theme of getting ready for a formal
dance, as a metaphor for preparing for adult life.
I love the painting, and have not worked actively at selling
it, because she lives in our house, and makes the room she is
in sing. But if you'd like her to do the same for a room in
your house, the one time only sale price is $1500, shipping not
included. If you live in the Toronto area I will deliver it for
free. The regular price of a 3 ft. x 4 ft. painting is $3500,
shipping not included. So this is a special deal for sure.
Have a buying art day.
