Getting ready for a sale


I'm getting ready for a sale at a local school in a few weeks. My husband is making some racks to display my daily paintings and so I was grouping them in order to determine size, layout etc... What a difference it makes when you lay similar pieces side by side. I love seeing them this way - it starts to look like a unified body of work : ) When the racks are completed I'll post a photo.

Those look amazing! I hope you have a great sale. It must be so nice to get everything together and see everything all at once!

I'm so excited to see your work on display! They look amazing put together! :)

Layne Cook said...

Good luck with the sale. I think people will love choosing their "very own" from that great selection. Looking forward to seeing the rack.

SUSAN RODEN said...

So cool Kim! And I spy the sweets!

Wish you much success.

Crystal Cook said...

That is just so fantastic! There's that pansy I love so much :) Your work is so beautiful, I can just see a row of those on my wall!

D.D said...

Together all the paintings are looking amazing. I am sure you will get tremendous response. All the best.

Kim said...

Thanks friends! I am crossing my fingers for some sales...you do acquire some inventory when you're daily painting! ; )

LindaHunt said...

Best of good fortune to you...these look fabulous!!!! Such beautiful work all together!

We have a local art shop nearby and an artist has displayed lots of simple sketches in a similar way and then framed then to form one large piece of art. It is selling for £1,300 and is not even close to looking as fantastic as this! Have you thought of doing something similar? I imagine the top one framed as one, would look superb on the wall of a restaurant! Both look so beautiful! I just love your paintings - Really I do :0)

Andrea Farmer said...

This looks great together as a group - (not that they don't look wonderful individually either, of course) but there's good impact w/all of these together.

where will the sale be, Kim?? I'd love to see them all together like this :)

Carol Blackburn said...

That's awesome, it shows your buyers they can buy one or make a grouping out of any number of them. Best of luck with the sale.

Virginia Floyd said...

These look really great! Love all those wine bottle paintings.

Maija Baynes said...

Your paintings really do look wonderful as a group this way. I'd like to know what type of a frame is your husband going to make, and "how" are you going to attach the individual paintings to it?

Dana Cooper said...

You are right, the paintings look wonderful together, can't wait to see more photos of it. Good luck with your sale!

Gwen Bell said...

Oh Kim! I can't tell you how lovely all of these look grouped together. I know the sale will be a huge success! Have you considered turning these into a book to sell on your Blog? What a beauty that would be! I love the order that you have them laid out...perfect!

Nancy Laliberte said...

Wonderfully inspiring! Keep it up Kim, and have a GREAT sale!

Nicki said...

Kim said...

Thanks! Yes, I should mention where it is. It is taking place at Glen Ridge Public School Saturday, September 18, 10am-5pm.

Wow! They look awesome Kim!! Uncolicited advice ahead for which I humbly apologize in advance: A wise gallerist taught me to never hang like paintings together. The tendency for the patron/art buyer is to visually lump them and for instance if it's all truck paintings and they don't like trucks, they will visually move on to the next set without looking at any of them.... Food for thought, you might want to mix 'em up, so people look at each gem individually. (Sorry again, hope you sell out!!)

shirley fachilla said...

I'm getting ready to have a sale,too. My friends and I will be grouping and hanging in about a week.
Very nice to see how wonderful your paintings look as a "body of work." Hope I achieve something half as nice!

Caroline Bray Art said...

What awesome photos! The paintings look great together and it must be nice to see your works grouped together, I bet you feel a real sense of accomplishent. Best of luck with the sale!

Kerri Settle said...

Oh man, all those paintings look fantastic together! Definitely a visual feast and a very cohesive collection.

Dewberry Fine Art said...

Wow, they look good.

Lori Bonanni said...
