In the process of doing my inventory over the last couple of months (267 paintings and counting) it has been possible to identify the items that I would move like to find new homes, if only for space reasons. So, I selected three of my largest paintings to go into the Pacific Artists’ Co-Op Gallery for the new hang (starting July 1.)

The Four Brothers: $500 – 48″ x 24″ acrylic on panel (2020)
I Feel Pretty: $350 – 22″ x 30″ watercolor with collage (2020)
Should the Turkey Cross the Road: $200 – 28″ x21″ watercolor (2018)

Then, I decided to paint a variety of small panels with gold gesso and create small, affordable paintings to use up my remaining space. Now, remember, all this is just days before the deadline for the new art and the Art on the Edge Studio Tour, which is starting tomorrow (June 28-30.) My sense of timing remains… incomparable.

Garden Gold: $75 – 12″ x 12″ acrylic on panel (2024)
Desirous for Iris: $65 – 12″ x 10″ acrylic on panel (2024)
“Siberian Vision”: $65 – 12″ x 10″ acrylic on panel (2024)
Joy (aka Joyful Whale): $50 – 12″ x 7″ acrylic on panel (2024)
Sea Nettle: $50 – 8″ x 10″ acrylic on panel (2024)
Drifter: $25 – 4″ x 6″ acrylic on panel (2024)

Finally, to round out my selection, I made a decision that “Distinguished Gentleman” was finished and included this piece in the set.

Distinguished Gentleman: $150 – 20″ x 16″ acrylic on panel (2024)

Which brings my total available paintings up to 272 (with 17 at the gallery). Gosh I hope some people need some art this weekend!
