So, I Had This Great Epiphany
About 2 weeks ago I had this great (and somewhat obvious) realization about buying and selling art. It occurred to me that making things a little easier on collectors and broadening the prices of my work may be a brilliant idea. Not everyone wants an $8,000 painting, right? And I thought, I don’t mind matting/mounting work and I know which mats are exceptional quality – why not let a collector skip that part and just handle the framing when needed (someone may have specific framing ideas to match their decor or design project).
Ideas = Action
Ideas in the studio are always terrific because it most often equals action. Within a few days I started working on 7 now 6 because one bombed, small-ish abstract landscape/seascape paintings that I deliberately created a certain size so I could pre mat/mount with archival 16h x 20w white mats. This way, a collector can simply pop the painting in a standard 16h x 20w frame of their choice. The 6 paintings turned out beautiful and a splendid addition to the ever-growing Hidden Messages Series. The painting shown above Hidden Message No.7 (pre mat/mount with protective sleeve) is priced at $175 and includes free shipping in the U.S. Click here to see more details about the painting and purchase any of the 6 new works.
