Etsy shops closed through April


I am closing my Etsy shops (the artwork one & the printed gift shop) for the month of April. At least. Maryland is under a “stay home” order. Selling artwork is not a good enough reason risk the health of postal workers or the good people who make my prints or myself. The paintings will still be there later. Thank you for understanding.

March 2020 Newsletter

And then plans changed, but you already know that...



Dear friends,
As you well know, everything is canceled. I've taken this unexpected downtime to update my Etsy shop and replenish the Sale bins. You can navigate different categories of artwork using the links below. I will only be shipping on Fridays, in order to stay home as much as possible. Stay safe, everyone!
Love,
Barb

Things I Did Do
In February, I visited 6 classes at my daughter's preschool show them what an artist does. Then we drew animals together. My favorite was the "pig-erpillar" that one little artist made when she got really excited about adding legs.
I've decided to take an online painting class with artist Scott Conary in this unexpected lull in my schedule. 


Things I Did Not Do
A two-week painting residency called Artists in Action at Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center in Dowell, Maryland, from Mar 23rd - Apr 6th. Tentatively the program is suspended (possibly canceled), but I withdrew. I planned to make studies of colorful blocks, like the one shown above. I'll apply again next year.
A speaking engagement at the Olney Art Association's March Meeting has been postponed. Eventually, I will talk about my approach to artmaking as playful experimentation.

NEW! - Painterly Gifts

I moved all of my printed tote bags, mugs, and fanny packs to a separate Etsy shop -- Painterly Gifts -- along with many new designs. But for the first time I'm also offering small, framed prints of several paintings. I will be adding to the selections in the gift shop each month. Check it out!


Gallery Shop

With all of the prints and gifts moved to the new shop, that means that my regular Etsy shop will feature original artwork. I will continue to offer a variety of art there: framed, unframed, paintings on paper, and collages.

Thank you & Happy New Year!

Thank you & Happy New Year

Dear friends,
There is nothing I love so much as emails from collectors expressing their joy upon receiving their artwork and showing me where my paintings are displayed in their homes. 2019 has been a very good year, and I am grateful for all the friendships and conversations.
Thank you and best wishes to you in the New Year!
Love,
Barb
