a good few weeks for art!

i've sold 5 paintings over the past 2 weeks, have 4 commissioned pieces on the go, and 5 or 6 pieces on hold for a friend. i really enjoy getting the older pieces out of the house, partly because i really need the room, but seriously - what good are paintings leaning in my hallway in a big stack? i've seen them already. i've sketched them, doodled them, painted them, fiddled with them. i'm over it. now i just want it to brighten someone else's room, you know?

perhaps this spring i'll have an "open house" for close friends - come on over and pick out anything in this pile for $20, that pile for $50, etc. just get it out of my house before one of those cleaning and organizing tv shows comes over to torture me.

i'll always be a disorganized packrat, but i'm working on it, and that counts for something, right?

since tomorrow is (technically) the first day of spring, here is a snow & ice slideshow for your entertainment: CLICK

do you own any of my artwork?

if so, please email a photo of yourself showing off the piece in your home!

if you're shy, you could wear a crazy hat & sunglasses, hire your dog to point instead, or whatever goofy thing you like...

Click to see the Happy Folks Gallery - wouldn't you like your photo there too?

email pics to cynthia dot gould at gmail dot com

thanks so much!!!

also.... another discounted painting!!

Darkness Creeping In (friends only discount price)

16" x 16" x 2 pieces - $350 $200 SOLD!!!
cash only, pickup within 2 weeks.
(the two paintings are square, this was taken at an angle)
(this piece was very time & paint consuming due to the many layers)
(no need for framing - edges are painted all the way around)

interested? email me!!!

this one always feels sort of rockabilly to me. not sure why.
maybe the illusion of flames.

would you like some paintings.... CHEAP?

after spending much of yesterday clearing two rooms of the house so that the window people can access the windows, i have come to realize that one of the biggest clutter issues in the house involve storing my paintings. also, since windows are Really Expensive, i need cash to pay for them!

let's "feed two birds with one seed", shall we?

have you ever thought to yourself, "i wish i had one of cynthia's paintings to brighten my space, but i could only afford something for ____ dollars" ?

EMAIL ME. fill in the blank and i'll send you a big list of paintings that i could let go for that price just to get them out of the house. no obligation! if there's nothing on the list you like, no worries.

you have no idea how cheap i am willing to go just to clear out the older pieces. seriously. lots of small stuff, and bright pops of colour in the $30 to $50 range, and some of the big $300 pieces could go for $150ish.

cash only, pickup only - either at my place or downtown near yonge & king. these offers valid only to march 15th.

Please, if you're interested, EMAIL ME with a price range. i'll send you photos & details.
