There is no doubt that I love to paint! Each part of the process brings me much satisfaction. Part of that process is getting my work into the hands of people that will really enjoy it. Sometimes this takes a little longer than I would like! 

With that in mind, I offer the above pieces for sale. They were all created just a few years ago and I like them just as much today as I did when I painted them. The first three works depict scenes that are very representative of our area: an historical building, a community park, and our beloved Lake Hogan. The last three works, though not in our county, are a nice grouping of rural scenes. They are all from Linden which is down the road from us.

I would really love to find a good home for any of these works. I am looking for people that I already know who might be interested. But! Put on your thinking caps! Even if you aren't interested yourself perhaps you know someone who might like the paintings. Maybe a local person or even a local organization-particularly one where other people might walk in and out of that business. Perhaps you might even share this post on your Facebook page. Please help me to get the word out. These pieces are just waiting to go to a good home.

Please email me with questions or comments: libbyfife@ymail.com  I am very happy to deliver these pieces and avoid any shipping expense. I don't normally discount my work but would consider a small reduction if any of the pieces are bought in a group.

Thanks as always for looking and reading. It's appreciated!

  1. I like all of these and I can see how the strong patterns of values and colors have led you in to your new work.
    Your paintings should be seen, Libby. Have you thought of donating a piece to your city hall or library? I donated one of mine to the federal building here in town and I have had people actually mention they had seen it. It was of a local scene hung right by the window where people got forms.
    I wish the tax system was more favorable for us artists regarding donations, but at least the cost of the materials can be deducted.
    Good luck with your sale and I will show them to people I know.

  2. It would be nice to have some of these seen. My BIL works at our Government Center which is our version of City Hall. He might be a possible source to ask. I have this idea that reaching out to various organizations in our county might be the way to go. It's really difficult to make any kind of sale here. At least I am having a very hard time of it. I am also going to include this in my newsletter so that it reaches a wider and slightly more local audience. I think they are pretty solid pieces.

    Thanks for your offer to show the pieces to anyone you think is interested. I appreciate it. And thanks for the visit as always. Your input is important!

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I appreciate it! I reply back in an email if you are signed in and I can see your address. Otherwise I will post the reply here under your comment. I tend to cut and paste my emails too so that others can experience the back and forth which I think is integral to blogging.
