Four Plein Air Oil Painting Sales This Month
Four of my 8"x10" plein air oil paintings were purchased by a collector in Albuquerque, New Mexico this month via my Etsy shop. It turns out she lived in Vero Beach previously, and my little paintings of our lovely area brought a little piece of paradise home to her in the high desert. As it turns out, my husband and I previously lived in Albuquerque before moving back to Florida. It was pretty cool to find out about our cross-country switch-up. The last painting she purchased just yesterday is some early Christmas shopping. It would be great if more people did their shopping for gifts on Etsy and buy American and hand made like this collector!

Do you believe in buying original art and supporting American artists? Do you shop on Etsy for art or other hand made items? How do you feel about supporting American artists versus buying from big box stores where everything is made overseas?
