There are always a lot of haters. It’s sad that people mess with other people’s sites. Those of you who do come here to see art, thank you! Please enjoy this paining “Patience” as I try to keep this site running and complete new paintings.
Fun and busy night at Kennedy gallery last night! As I arrived, I was told that a canvas print of my painting “Be Strong” sold. That was the last one. If this piece interests you let me know. These prints sell for $75 plus shipping & sales tax.
Second Saturdays in Sacramento is when a number of galleries stay open until 9pm or 10pm. It is a great time for artists of all sorts to have their work seen. One of the prevalent conversations last night with other artists involved negotiating. Many times an artist will adjust their price to make a sale. I’ve done it many times and seldom regret it, but there are some pieces that every artist creates that are “important” pieces. Important, in that it is a signature piece of the artist. Such works should never be sold discounted, Often such work needs to be higher than the artist prices it.
If you are an artist, its OK to stick with your price. Have you ever tried to haggle prices with an auto mechanic or at a restaurant? My guess, is most of the time it doesn’t get you anywhere.
I would advise artists on certain pieces to not discount. The canon of Art history is being added to everyday and the last thing I want is for a fellow artist to enter the canon of art as a discounted rate.

Sometimes in life we all have to refine. (Who am I kidding? It’s most of the time!) Spent some time simplifying and refining the site. Hope you like the direction it is moving in. I chose to simplify where I could, yet still provide the content that I am passionate about. Thanks for all your comments and encouragement!
So, I am now on Patreon. This is a way to connect artists with Patrons thereby renamed as Patreons.
Please visit my Patreon oage and let me know if you have any suggestions for content and/or incentives. Please consider contributing and sharing.
