My Last Hurrah! A Farewell Sale

Visit Facebook Event Page

I'm taking my Ocean Art Studio out on the open road in The Painted Road Project from May 2014 until June 2015 to create a multi-disciplinary visual documentary "en plein air". 

All my current 2014 and archived artworks from 2005 onward must go! Lots of new original oil and encaustic paintings will be available, along with a huge selection of current greeting cards, post cards, and reproductions.

This will be my last sale. Plan ahead for birthdays, Christmas, and other special occasion gifts, or invest in donation items for fundraising events.

The Sale will run for 3 days only. Bring your friends and family! Even just come over to say Goodbye :)
After that I'm packing up the studio and house; everything is going into storage.

It's my Last Day!

This Saturday, April 12th, will be bitter-sweet for me. It is the last day I will have my Ocean Art Studio booth at the Halifax Seaport Farmers Market for at least 13 months. I've been attending the market as a regular weekend vendor for over 4 years! It's been an amazing experience I will be forever grateful for. I've met hundreds of wonderful people there who have encouraged me in my career and who have supported me by buying my art for their homes, and by giving my art to friends and family as special gifts. What a stepping stone! Now I'm getting ready for the next chapter beyond home, The Painted Road Project, beginning May 15th.

This Saturday I'll have all the paintings with me that are shown in this photo. If you come for one and don't see it, ask me. I won't have enough space to hang everything. The market is undergoing a transformation and more renovations so they've removed the partition wall that has served as my "gallery" wall, but I do have a small grid-wall that will do. I'll also have all the prints and cards shown in my Etsy Shop in limited quantities. If there are any you plan on picking up, please let me know so I can tuck them aside for you:

It's looking like it will be a great day!! I hope to see you there! We're open from 7am-3pm.
