January White sale is on now, as this is the month for sales! First created in 1878 by John Wanamaker as a way to clear out the merchandise from his department store, white sales have now become popular for sales on linens. But I’m not selling linens, you say! Well, that’s okay, I’m still having a White sale to clear out the way for new paintings to come.
Select oil paintings are discounted for the entire month of January! If you missed out on the Black Friday Sales, here’s your chance to pick up an original one of a kind oil painting, in small sizes. Also, did you know you can make payments on any purchase? Read about it HERE.
Small works of art are easily changed in your decor. Create little vignettes along with your other collectibles to add a pop of color and interest. Small paintings can be moved from room to room, displayed in a bookcase, on a sofa table, or on a desk.
Create a wall with a theme and add small paintings in a grouping. And remember to look at your art every day! Art can help us to destress and bring beauty to our inside spaces.
The January White sale will last until the end of January so you have plenty of time to pick something up. Don’t forget Valentine’s Day is around the corner! How about a Red Rose oil painting for your sweetie? A painting will last longer than a bouquet!
Complimentary Gift Wrapping comes with every purchase and if you are a U.S. resident, enjoy FREE shipping! I hope you find something you love and will become a part of your fine art collection.
Introductory Pricing on all oil paintings will end on August 31, 2019. If you would like to purchase a painting at the introductory pricing rates, you still have a few weeks left! After the price change, the only way to purchase at a discount will be if you are a Tamarack Mountain Studio member. You can become a member by clicking HERE. Being a member of Tamarack Mountain Studio grants you insider purchasing power during secret sales and allows you to be entered in the yearend giveaway of one of my miniature paintings.
Creating an oil painting takes many steps and a lot of editing before it is ready for the market. Each layer must be fully dry before a new layer is added, otherwise cracking of the painting can occur. Once a painting is finished, it takes several months to dry before the varnish is added. After the varnish is fully dry, a painting is framed unless it has been painted on a gallery wrapped box canvas. Gallery wrapped box canvas paintings are meant to be displayed without a frame. You can see why the purchase of an oil painting is an investment.
You can shop for my original oil paintings by clicking the Paintings tab in the header. I look forward to having you as one of my many collectors!
“Skiffs on the Dock” is a 6″x6″ oil painting on gallery wrapped canvas. I enjoy painting small works because they are so portable. Small paintings can be used to decorate with the seasons and easily stored or moved around. You can display collections of small works with fine collectibles in an art niche, in a bookcase or on an office credenza.
“Skiffs on the Dock” is now available in my store. If you or someone you know loves small nautical works of art, won’t you share this post? Mother’s Day and Father’s Day will be here soon. Why not give a gift that lasts a lifetime?
“Pears” is painted on 8″x8″x2″ gallery wrapped canvas, and depicts three beautiful pears just as they are beginning to ripen. I find the shape of pears to be intriguing and feminine. There are so many subtle colors in a pear and the taste is the best part! How do you like your pears? Chocolate drizzled, or with whipped cream? Ice cream covered or poached in a wine sauce? I like them just as they are. 🙂
“In art, intentions have no place; only results. In good art, the results do not have to be explained. As a matter of fact, there is but one kind of art and that is good art. There is no comfortable halfway station; it is either fine, or it is not art.”
