Three Pink Tulips Painting Video



I was commissioned by one of my previous clients to create a painting for a fundraiser auction for Cancer Care Manitoba in honour of Jackie Shymanski.

"The fund was set up by Jackie's former collegues at CNN where she was a war correspondent and by her friends at Cancer Care Manitoba. Ironically at the time of her diagnosis and passing she was the Director of Public Relations at Cancer Care Manitoba. Jackie also took a gardening postion at Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg when she returned from working as a war correspondent. The tulips in the painting honor Jackie's love of flowers."


I was asked to incorporate three pink tulips in the painting to represent her friends, and cancer fundraising.

You can check out the link below to the fundraising event
and donations to Cancer Care Manitoba.
The Event will be held:
November 15, 2017 at 6:00pm
DeLuca's (950 Portage Ave., Winnipeg,MB Canada)

5 Myths About Buying Art

 

Part 3. Five Myths About Buying Art


I’ve talked to many folks who have misconceptions around buying art. In this article I hope to dispel at least a few of these myths. Buying art can be a perplexing and stressful process to the uninitiated. After reading this article and the accompanying linked blog post you’ll be able to consider yourself "initiated". If you haven't already read the first two articles in the series, please click the link below to get started!

Myth #1 .....

Only Rich People Buy Art

This idea is a hold over from when artists had patrons who were popes, princes and noblemen. The myth continues to be propagated by elite art galleries that prefer their clients have lots of money so that they can charge them whopping heaps of cash to acquire the latest hyped artist’s work. It’s true that usually this type of art is bought for investment purposes, and yes it is typically bought by people with deep pockets. 

However there are other types of art available and places to buy that art that are more in keeping with the average person's budget and taste.That being said there are still general rules on art pricing. For example an original painting will always cost more than an art print from the same artist, and limited edition art prints will cost more than open editions (no limit to the number of prints, endlessly reproduced).

When purchasing original paintings, I’m sure you will agree that the artist must be paid a proper price for having created the work. This price can be based on many factors: where you buy the painting, the artist’s experience, the complexity and uniqueness of the artwork, the amount of skill and time gone into executing the painting, plus the ever changing variable, ‘what’s the market prepared to pay?' 


Given all those factors there are still original paintings that are within the price range of the average person. For original art, early career artists will typically charge less than more established artists. Smaller works tend to cost less. Sketches will cost less than paintings, but they’re a good place to start if you seriously want to take up art collecting with more than a decorator’s eye but don’t quite have the budget for fully realized originals. 

For many people the sweet spot between your eyes and wallet is art prints. Art Prints are affordable and something you can proudly display in your home as decorative art. Choosing images that you love will enhance your enjoyment of your home and therein lies the true value of art prints! If you want to know more about why art has value in your home, check out this blog post.

All is quiet on the beach


All is quiet on the beach now that the hot weather has cooled. The town of Port Stanley is now returned to the locals and it's regular off season state.  I'm sorry to see the summer go, it's been so lovely our first summer living here. I've enjoyed the warm summer night walks to the beach with the dog. This shot is of GT's bar and grill on the beach. We ate dinner her alot this summer,the view is just so awesome!!!!
