We experienced Summer weather in October, don't let it fool you. I can wait awhile for the white stuff. Fall Colors depicts the rich foliage of fall. This painting is a 20x16 acrylic on stretched canvas. Available.
In the Studio
The shops that I hang some of my work are closing for the season, but plans are underway for two of the shops to have Christmas markets. Little Red School House (Woodstock outside of O'Leary, PEI) and Kensington Art Coop (at the Kensington Legion). If you need more information on these, just drop me an email. firstname.lastname@example.org With many of the craft shows not running, this will be a great alternative experience for Christmas shoppers to purchase local handcrafted items. My private art classes are going very well. I am also giving "Art Parties" for groups who want to enjoy an evening of creating. If you or someone you know are interested, just send them my way. email@example.com
Tips for the Artist in You
How to price your artwork?
That depends on what you read from different sources. Some questions to ask yourself are:
What market are you in?
Where are you geographically located?
How well known as an artist are you?
What you choose to receive as an artist?
Generally speaking when you first start out you price low, because it will take you awhile to get momentum then as you start to sell, you can raise your prices and the more you paint the better the outcomes will be. Confidence level comes from making sales.
You also have to cover your costs and pay yourself a reasonable amount of wage. Keep track of how long it takes to complete a painting and add up the cost of materials.

"Hay Bales at Malpeque" is a 11x14 oil painting that I recently completed (available).
I was driving to the campsite one sunny day and came across this scene of the hay bales looking out over the water. I had to turn around and take a reference photo for a painting. And here is the finished painting. Hope you like it.
