William E Vaughn was an American columnist and author well known for his folksy aphorisms.
This one, written many many  years ago, may just some how sum up how most of us are feeling about 2020.

Not to wish time on…. but don’t let the door hit you on your way out!

My art work prices will be adjusted in 2021.

I postponed adjusting my prices in 2020 because, well I felt there was enough going on. Life was difficult for many. I wanted to give new buyers the opportunity to start collecting art, during trying times.

However the cost of equipment, oil paints, canvas, rent of studio space, etc. continues to rise. My works are priced below market. These factors have created a need for a price increase.


Because you’ve been such a valuable supporter, I want to offer my work to you at current prices until the end of January. 

All of my works on the web now show size, media and current pricing. The prices will be increased on the web January 15th. If you see something you want to purchase after that, please contact me and I will give you the current price.
