Some art work placed in a high street shop in my local area that sells all sorts of things for the home.   I’m trying to find ways of getting paintings seen and hopefully sold in places other than galleries.

The second time of trying to get it right. If we want people to buy artwork then it has to be seen in places other than galleries where often the prices asked are completely out of reach of people who might otherwise think it might be cool to have some original work. As the galleries often keep the difference, I thought it was worth a try anyway.   Selling online is also a good option but when it comes to paintings people often tell me they want to see the work IRL. before making up their minds.

Price range: £150 – £190 –  exclusive of the shop’s commission – three of the works are framed one isn’t – it will be interesting to see if people state a preference. I never normally frame my work, so finding this a bit uncomfortable.   (Adding frames also makes it more expensive, depending on how you do it of course).

Continuing with the plan to get more work out there in places other than galleries, here’s some New Site Specific work made for a local coffee shop – smaller oil paintings made on raised stretchers, the walls in the shop are a really beautiful warm grey colour, hopefully they will be accepted, if so I’ll give them a shout out here :)Black and White Circle Black Circle Upright1 Upright2Larger Squared

SKITTER – at the Bermondsey Art Trail – 11th July

Really pleased to be included here. For once we didn’t need to explain anything, we just sent our site info to the Bermondsey Art Trail and they liked what we do http://www.arthouse1.co.uk/the-bermondsey-art-trail.html and we have one of our videos included in a screening at the Shortwave Cinema in Bermondsey Square. (* A big thank you to Rebecca Fairman, your enthusiasm is much appreciated! And thank you to Clare Dove for the original link: ) http://bermondseysquare.net/project/bermondsey-art-trail/)
