Big news, new work and new shop

"Sweetest revenge" 24 x 30 oil and charcoal on linen
Happy Monday! This is a really great Monday in my book.
I wanted to share some new work today as well as some exciting news. Today I have mostly a series of blue and white on linen. I would love to do a boat load of blue and white studies. I am also liking sepia and white (see below) it is a warm brown and purplish black that I find really beautiful.
Jennifer of The Pink Pagoda, is sharing a few of my blue and white paintings today too, as part of her blue and white Monday series.

After thinking long and hard I have decided to transition out of selling original canvases on Etsy. It has been a wonderful place for me grow and connect with new collectors of my artwork, so I am sad to move on in a way.
 I will continue to offer prints and paintings on paper on Etsy. The reason for this is that a necessary price increase, I believe, prices me out of Etsy with my originals on canvas. Paintings on paper and prints will remain the same price.
I will offer a sale of some sort as part of the transition very soon.

So where can you buy Kerry Steele original work?
I have set up a new shop as part of my site KerrySteele.com. The URL is shop.KerrySteele.com but there is also a simple link on my home page.

The big news...
You will also be able to see my work at Blue Print store in Dallas starting in August.
For those of you not familiar with Blue Print, it is an interior design mecca owned by five interior designers. One of my favorite artists, Sally King Benedict, has her work there along with other well-known artists and now I will too!
 I am so very excited!

Seriously great news for you! Although I guess this means I'm going to have to keep saving even longer to purchase one of your pieces! It will be well worth the wait!
