I have a friend who wants me to put prices on everything
I show on my blog, Instagram, and Facebook, but I prefer
to mention prices occasionally, when the mood hits me.
But maybe she's right, and it makes sense that 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
or Instagram DM. 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 14
years ago, and the model is the daughter of a former neighbour --
a brilliant young woman just going 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 it lives in our house, and makes the room she is
in sing. But if you'd like the work 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 an excellent special deal
Have a let's buy art for the holidays day.
