People will ask which of my original works are available and the best I can tell them is to come over to my house to look at my walls—and dig through portfolios and boxes and all the little cubby holes where I have artwork stored. Sometimes I go looking and find paintings I forgot I still had.
For that reason I decided one of the galleries I need is one for just original artwork. And so I went back through all the images I’ve posted on this website and tagged each of my available originals to show up in my new Available Original Art Gallery. Here you’ll find works in pastel, watercolor, acrylic, pencil, ink, oil pastel, cut paper, mixed media, all the inspirations that caused me to create an image.
I just did this last week—just in time for my annual original artwork sale until the last day of autumn, December 21, 2017:
all Original Artwork, all Subjects
Just use the code SPLENDOROFAUTUMN25 for your special discount.
So if you’re beginning your holiday shopping, enjoy some time in nature instead of heading for the mall—you can shop for special gifts of artwork in the galleries on Portraits of Animals.
Why spend extra money on an original when a print looks nice enough? Looking at the original work that was done by hand is very different from looking at a print. I’m very careful with preparing my images for prints and they are very faithful reproductions, but the original always has more depth and dimension, even though it’s a two-dimensional work. You get a piece of my inspiration when you get an original painting, one of the moments I stood on the landing and sketched Giuseppe and Jelly Bean on the bed, or when I watched the snow on the trail and tried to capture the feeling of a quiet, heavy snowfall.
Original art is a very special gift to give as well.
