I painted a red fish. So there’s that.

My usual forte is paintings of dogs or cats or some other sort of pet. Fish can be pets, but truthfully, this one is not. It is simply a red fish in the sea that I took a notion to paint. I am not sure why.

“One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish”? I dunno. A series could follow, but it is not pressing.

A red herring? Perhaps. I could be distracting you from some truth to be disclosed later on.

But for now, let’s just go with, I painted a red fish, and that’s all there is to it.

(The painting is for sale if you are interested. Contact me for the details.)

I love your artwork! Do you have something I can afford?

I have heard other artists lament that viewers often complain about the price of their artworks, suggesting that the work is not worth the stated price. I am lucky – I don’t usually get that. Most people recognize the value off my work, even if it is well outside of their price range.

Still yet, I believe art is for everyone, not just those who have a higher level of affluence than others.

I do not want to sell myself short. After all, selling art is my livelihood. But it is possible for me to make artworks in varied price ranges.

I have been making some smaller drawings called ACEOs (Artist Trading Cards) so that my fans can collect smaller, lower priced artworks, yet still enjoy high quality fine art.

The selection above represents some of the ACEOs that are available. There are many more! Each is a separate 2.5″ x 3.5″ drawing. I am selling them for $15 each to help ensure I that I can cover my cat Slick’s future veterinary costs. My hope is to sell a bunch of them, making my work affordable for my fans and making my cat’s vet costs less daunting.

I have created an Etsy shop to make them easier to sell. You can visit the shop here.

Although ACEOs are small, they are still very collectible, and can be framed and enjoyed as great decorative items. My hope is that you will enjoy them, and visit the Etsy shop often. New items will be added all the time. Eventually, I will be adding drawings and paintings as well. Stay tuned!
