When a painting sells, the next step is to pack it in a box for shipping. Packing artwork for transport is a little more complicated than just plopping the canvas into a box.

A: They are all things living in Canada. Yes, I just sold two paintings to a collector in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Of course, being my first sales to Canada I had to figure out the paperwork and import charges required to ship work into this country. Though there was no duty tax, I still had to… [Read the rest of the post]
About a month ago, I wrote a post about the coveted “red dot”… the mark a gallery puts on a painting’s title when it sells but before they take it down to deliver it to a collector. I had one sale or “red dot” at the Madelyn Jordon Fine Art Gallery‘s “Summer Remix” group exhibition… [Read the rest of the post]
I recently delivered a painting to the Madelyn Jordon Fine Art Gallery for inclusion in their “Summer Remix” group exhibition that opened last week. As luck would have it, I ran into a friend who wanted to buy it two days before the opening. They displayed the painting at the opening anyway but with the coveted red dot on… [Read the rest of the post]
More good news…I sold another painting this week to a previous collector. Some paintings are harder to let go of than others because they have special meaning for me. “Exodus” is one of those paintings as it is the first painting I did for my master thesis. This painting tells the story of an autocratic society… [Read the rest of the post]
Yippee! Another painting finds a good home. A previous collector of mine just purchased “The Wheels of Capitalism”, a mixed media painting (16″ x 12″) where I used collaged bits of the Wall Street Journal. Anyone else interested in giving a painting a happy home to live in ?
Exciting news! My painting “Mondrianesce Studio” was just purchased by the Europe Hotel LLC. It will be going to the Belmond Grand Hotel Europe in Saint Petersburg, Russia and it will be hanging in the Presidential Suite. Nancy Sweeney, owner of Art Advisory Service and great friend and supporter, helped to convince them that my painting… [Read the rest of the post]

Saatchi Online, an online dealer of original paintings and prints, just started carrying my work. I sold my first print this week (“Hide and Seek”) through their website. Though the original of this painting is 48″ x 48″, they sell prints of this painting in 14″x14″ and 16″x16″ sizes. They do a particularly good job… [Read the rest of the post]

A collector of my work sent me a photograph of the painting that he and his wife recently purchased. The painting “Rush Hour” is a diptych (two paintings designed to hang together to create a single painting) painted on cradled wooden panels. They hung it by flanking one panel on each side of a door… [Read the rest of the post]
