And I am proud to say I am now Officially represented by Sivertson Gallery in Grand Marais! Wahoo!
This has been a dream of mine since childhood. We spent a lot of time in Grand Marais, and still do, and I remember seeing Liz Sivertson's art at Sivertson's Gallery long ago and loving it and understanding that a woman can be an artist and paint fantastic gloriously colorful paintings of animals, and that's what I wanted to do too. And now I am!

It was more than I could afford, of course, $400 or something around there, but I talked to the staff at Sivertson's and they said they would hold it for me and I could make payments on it, $50 a month, and when it was paid off I could get it, no interest charged at all. Well, that made a big difference to me! And I have come to realize that most galleries AND artists would prefer to sell a work to you for payments, and most do not charge any kind of interest either. SO think about that next time you see a larger, more expensive piece- or even a small, not terribly expensive but out-of-your-range-right-now piece, and ask the artist if they'd accept payments on it. I know I do!
Thanks for following along! And come see me this weekend at Powderhorn Art Fair if you can! I am around the lake at the ceremony site for Mayday!
