"Boxer Pup (Painted Sketch)," paper 4" x 5", image approximately 3" x 4", acrylic on multimedia artboard, $39 plus s&h.
Multimedia artboard is a museum quality sturdy as all heck paper that accepts paint and graphite and a mess of other abuse beautifully. I've been playing around with it and am very impressed - so much so, that it is my new surface of choice, in addition to the Ampersand Gessobords.
And, the multimedia artboard allows me to offer a lower price point on portraits and commissioned pieces. I'm calling these new paintings "Painted Sketches," and they will start at $29 plus s&h for a 4" square.
You can see from the little Boxer pup above, the Painted Sketches are lovely loose paintings that equally embrace the materials and the animal's personality. They aren't as detailed or polished as my other works, and will require framing (and protection under glass), but they carry a unique charm and character all their own.
Won't they make fabulous gifts? Mother's Day is coming up...... act quickly and I can squeeze your special project in.
Inquiries, for Painted Sketches and the Dog a Day Portraits, may always come to me.
Oh yeah, and if you want to buy this little guy, send me a note. This is an original painting, and when he's gone, he's gone.
One last note - for those of you who are fellow artists - the April Virtual pARTy was announced earlier today. Artwork is due by midnight EST on Saturday, April 24th. Please visit The Virtual pARTy blog for all the details.
Thanks, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork with your friends and family.
