Two days left to get on my email list for a chance to purchase one of my 3 Art Battle 20-minute training paintings, and PAY-WHAT-YOU-WANT.
I’m happy to share that I was one of the featured artists on the Abundant Artist Live talk today, along with Michelle Leivan, an artist who has painted over 60 selfies this year – amazing! If you haven’t checked out The Abundant Artist yet, do it! They share videos, articles and posts all helping to dispel the starving artist myth, and helping artists to promote themselves.
Here’s the video!

Come watch me battle 11 other artists on Art Battle Day!
Shipping is extra.
My brother likes to say, “Art is like football; you either win, or you lose.” I used to laugh, but now he’s right (well, sort of). This Saturday, I am going to be battling it out with 11 other Calgary artists on Art Battle Day. Art battles are going to be held across Canada, with the winners going on to regional battles, and finally, a national battle. The paints and canvases are provided, and the artists are given 20 minutes to paint.
That’s TWENTY MINUTES.
Yikes! I have been training to see what I am able to accomplish in twenty minutes, since I usually take anywhere from 1 hour to several days or weeks to finish a painting. I paint in layers, and like to let them dry in between – this isn’t going to be possible at Art Battle! Two layers, tops, and not dry at all. My experience painting at Gorilla House has given me the comfort to paint in front of an audience, so that part is okay. I’m looking forward to this as an experience of something new, a chance to get myself out painting in front of others (which I love), and just to be able to say I did it!
I have been posting my “training paintings” on my Facebook page, with a pay-what-you-want scheme.
Here is today’s painting. To purchase, today only, send me an email at magknit(at)telus.net telling me why you want the painting, and what you’re offering. I still have my first training painting available, too. See below. If you are sending me an offer, be sure to tell me to which painting you are referring.
For more information on Art Battle Day, see below, or click here. Please come out this Saturday and watch the battle! I think my training song on the day will be the “Training Montage” from Rocky IV. Yeah.
In other news… I’m taking part in the Sophia Arts Art Show and Sale again, coming up on May 16th and 17th. Details below!
Karma Art! was an awesome experience. Thank to everyone for the support and encouragement!
I received seven lovely offers, all of them so different, many of them with touching stories about how the painting spoke to them, or about who they wanted to give the painting to.
It was a difficult decision, and I chose Nan Nassef. Her response spoke to me on so many levels. The painting meant so much to her, pictorially, metaphorically, and figuratively, and I love the gift she brings to the world: compassion. I have been on the receiving end with Nan, and there’s nothing quite like having a friend who can really listen.
I would love to hear any feedback you have about Karma Art! Would you like to see this again? Any suggestions for the next one?
P.S. Thank you Lynda, for reminding me to follow up on this!
One of my favorite things about painting is knowing how much someone loves my art, or how it has inspired them to begin creating. That’s the point of it all, right? By sharing my creativity with you, hopefully you will be inspired to share your gifts with others, too.
This Friday, I will be offering my painting “Rebirth” (see photo above) to you.
Acrylic on canvas
16″ x 20″
Karma price: pay what you want.
Yes, you read that right! 🙂
Send me an email (magknit[at]telus.net) telling me:
1. Why you want this painting.
2. What gift you share with the world. Maybe you do already, or maybe it’s something you’ve been thinking about. Be generous with yourself here. You have many gifts.
3. The amount you wish to give for the painting.
Some things I would like you to know:
– there is a minimum cost of shipping to cover if you are outside of Calgary. $30 in Canada, $40 to U.S.
– I sell other paintings of this size for $300.
Once I choose who will receive the painting, I will contact you with details about payment methods.
Much love to you!
