Original Watercolor Paintings, Not a Print.

AUTUMN STORM watercolor
Lately I have noticed many people offering prints in their Etsy Shops. Prints of what I would say are simple renderings of paintings either sold long ago or they were painted with the expressed purpose of creating prints. The artists have invested in high quality printers and are printing their rendering, signing them and reaping huge profits. Honestly I really do not mind and they are selling their work as prints. But what about the artists that offer original work? Is this affecting the price of orginal art work? Probably.
So instead I decided to offer my etsy customers an alternative. Simple original watercolors at reasonable prices. They are unframed, painted on high quality 200lb. watercolor rag paper and I use the finest watercolors. They are not magnificent works of art but they are small studies (renderings)of flowers, autumn landscapes, feathers and birds. Each painting is no bigger than 9" x 12" and can be framed in a standard 8x10 frame. These paintings range from $24 to $28 depending on the work entailed. Custom paintings are also welcomed. Now would you rather an original painting or a print? you decide.
