As you can imagine, I produce a lot of work as a result of all the classes I teach. I am often asked, “What do you with all those demos?” For the most part, I don’t do anything with them right away. I store them and then if exhibits come up during the year and I don’t have anything available from my plein air or studio work, I go through my demos and see if anything might be a good fit. I also offer them for sale to my students as unframed originals that they may purchase from me at a discount. In fact, it’s just about the time of year for me to go through my flat files and pull the best ones for my annual sale. I hope to have everything sorted just before the end of the month, so if you are in any of my classes and liked any demos I did during the year, now is the time to get them for your collection.
Selling them online is a bit more complicated–the best thing to do if you don’t know me in real life is to follow me on Facebook or Instagram. I post all of my demos on these sites and you can always contact me if you see something you like. All of my work is for sale and I’m happy to provide you with a price if you ask.
I don’t make giclees of my paintings, all of the work I sell is original. I only offer my best demos for sale and the quality is not any different from that which I put in gallery exhibitions. The biggest difference is that most of what I sell directly are works on paper in pastel or watercolor rather than oils or acrylics.
I hope you will take a look around my Facebook page, you might find something that is just right for yourself or as a special gift.
