Swansea from Wiltshire

 

Delighted to say I have just SOLD this lovely oil painting “Swansea from Mumbles” direct from my Art gallery and via a visit from the buyers to my art website emmacownie.artweb.com – great how artlovers are now contacting me directly to buy artwork.  The artlovers are from Swansea originally and will have a lovely reminder of Swansea on the walls their home in Wiltshire, in the West country to remind them of home. They are also collecting the painting personally which will give us a chance to enjoy each other’s company again. The best thing about selling direct is getting to know very interesting people who love one’s work. It is a much more personal and rewarding experience for both parties. Plus if artlovers make the effort to buy art this way, I am more inclined to reduce the price to reward that effort.

Night Jacks

new oil painting – 80 x 60 cm, £479 – “Night Jacks”

“The title of this expressionist “urban folk” painting takes it’s title from Hopper’s “Night Hawks” – I have “Britished” Hopper’s painting which was set in an American diner by using a British alternative or even equivalent the ever present Fish and Chip shop instead as it seemed appropriate. The second part of the title, Jacks, refers to a name we have here in Swansea for people who come form Swansea.”

Buy Direct From My Art Gallery

Delighted to say I have just SOLD “Ilston Brook” directly via my Art Gallery, the “Back Lane Gallery” here in Brynmill Swansea (the lane is the opposite the Rhyddings Pub.)

This oil painting was SOLD to a lovely art collector who visited from Cardiff and had a private viewing before buying this lovely oil painting! I hope to sell more paintings directly via my The Back Lane Gallery in the coming months and years.

“A “refractionist” interpretive oil painting of a brook running through a wood near Ilston in the Gower Peninsula. The winter light combines with the grey haze of barren branched trees to create subtle, almost misty, pinks and purples, softened by the reflective silvery water.”

Transforming an Art Studio into an Art Gallery

Transforming an art studio into an art gallery – I have recently put some curtains for privacy and a few picture hanging rails onto the white walls of my art studio and it has really transformed it from a studio into somewhere where one can view art, serving as a private viewing space for artlovers to have a look at my paintings in “the flesh”.

009

Having this viewing space is designed to help artlovers make that final decision about buying my artwork. I have sold dozens of pieces of artwork this way and really enjoy meeting artlovers who like my artwork.

It also helps some artlovers to meet me and to get to know who they will be buying art from. It all adds to the enriching experience of buying art.

Artlovers also often like to hear about the inspiration behind certain paintings and this brings the artwork to life.

Although my paintings are professionally photographed some artlovers simply like to see the paintings in front of their very eyes.
Also artlovers can say, in advance, what paintings, in particular, they would like “hung” or displayed for them to have a closer look at and they will be hung on the white walls ready for them to view.

They can do this in the afternoon or the evening as the tracking lights enable viewing in the evening too.
