I've had people ask me why my paintings are expensive, they're actually reasonably priced but I wanted to share this post because I'm not sure how much I've shared about my work.
I can only speak for myself I don't know how other Artists work but when I start each painting my goal is to create a painting that is made to last a lifetime and when the owner opens the box I want that individual to be excited to display right away.
Each painting has been created with brush strokes guided not only by my hands but by my heart.
It's a part of me that is being transferred onto a piece of canvas, paper or wood.
Did you know that often times when you buy a print, poster, etc from a Big Box Store you can end up paying more for that mass produced item than you would for an original painting.
Another thing you probably didn't know is that reproductions are made with really cheap inks which give reproductions a flat and dull look where as an original painting created with quality paint and mediums will look fresh and last you a lifetime.
Quality materials are important to me, again I'm only speaking for myself but I want anyone investing in my work to get the best for their money, that means I use Golden Paints products, they stand behind their product and I love their texture.
Golden Paints is not sponsoring me for mentioning them I just enjoy their product and my collectors deserve to know what product I use.
If you have any specific questions let me know and contact me here.
