View Full Version : Just sold two large pastels!

I haven't been on wetcanvas for awhile, but I wanted to pop in and share my excitement. I just sold two large pastels! It is so exciting for me, it feels so good, and very validating. I gave a 15% discount, but will say I still made enough from this sale to pay for my studio for the next 8 months!!

I want to also thank Deborah Secor and Paula Ford for all their support and positive feedback over the last year... it's helped me gain the confidence I need to start my art career.

Here are the two pieces I sold: Abstract Cityscape and Night Sea. Night Sea is from a reference photo I found in the Reference Library!

Congratulations, Kim! I like them both, but for personal reasons Night Sea touches me more. They're beautiful paintings, so evocative. I like how you use space in them. Night Sea especially is so interesting that way.

Great job. That's very cool. How large are they? In what price range?

I sold a small oil this month - just 5x7 and less than $100 after the gallery commission. Each of the paintings I've sold this year were 5x7 or less! Sales are great but...

Night Sea is 19x25, priced at $995.
Abstract Cityscape is 18x28, priced at $1295.

I gave him a 15% commission off of the above prices. I had framed the pieces with matting, spacer, etc.

Thanks all!
