What an Amazing Year!
(And a chance to win 10 fine art cards)
The Art Boat has had a wonderful Spring and Summer, catching up with old friends, making new, and trying out some different festivals. If ever I doubted I was doing the right thing (and believe it or not, even with my fabulous life, I do), this year has made me absolutely sure. I have sold more original paintings than last year and added some lovely mugs that my sister has started printing for me…She will have a whole blogpost to herself when she is ready!? I will be telling you all about my lovely year in a separate post, but for now I want to celebrate…
10 Paintings in 10 days.
After my Spring and Summer season on TheArtBoat I came straight back to an Open Studio Event at Vernon Mill with the prospect of very few paintings to show (my successful year had it’s downside). Not to be deterred I got my act together and challenged myself to produce 10 paintings in 10 days. Each one on a 8″ x 8″ canvas . Two have already sold (nos 9 and 1) as well as several hand finished 6″ prints. I will eventually be adding them to my shop but meanwhile contact me if you are interested in any of the Originals or prints.
WIN a set of 10 Fine Art Cards
To celebrate the end of a challenging season I am giving away a set of 10 Fine Art greetings cards to one lucky winner. All you have to do is subscribe to TheArtBoat Newsletter on the form at the side of this post. I will also be sending a discount code for anything in my shop (If the item you want isn’t there yet, just let me know and I will sort it! ) The cards are made with slightly textured prints mounted on brown card with a recycled paper insert. They are left blank for your own message.
The Newsletter is a brand new venture for me, and is intended to keep you up to date with The Art Boat and exhibitions and new works by Jan Vallance as well as special offers.
Until next time… Jan
