Etsy shop

Over the past few weeks, I've been working hard, and steadily, at getting my online presence up to date with all of my new work. It takes a lot of time and effort, but it's also fun and exciting to be putting more time into the promotional angle.

As part of this effort, I've re-stocked my Etsy shop with new artwork and prints. I still have a number of things to add to it, but for now, I feel it's in a ready-enough state to share! I'm also currently offering free shipping, and will continue to do so from now until Christmas. This means, if you're interested in sending something elsewhere as a gift, I will happily do so on your behalf at no charge. I'll even gift-wrap it inside the packaging, upon request!

The link to the shop is here:

Hope you enjoy! If you have an suggestions or recommendations, those are appreciated as well. Thanks for checking it out!

Also, my sale for charity is still on, with many pieces available at reduced prices. Scroll down to the next blog post to read all the details.

Art Sale for Charity: feeding the hungry through Second Harvest

Back in May, I put together a sale of some of my artwork at reduced prices, with partial proceeds to charity. The sale was a success, and through people's purchases, over $300 was donated to the international Red Cross.

I've decided, as we head into the winter weather, to put together another sale. This time, 30% of sales will be donated to Second Harvest, an organization that works in Toronto to divert perfectly good surplus fresh food from restaurants, stores, and markets -- food that would otherwise go to landfill -- to feed those in need. (Learn more here.)

Each of the paintings below is included in this sale, with 30% of their price going to this charity. I will also, between now and the end of November, donate 15% of any regularly-priced purchase from my website, including prints, to this cause. It's a great opportunity to pick up a piece as an early holiday gift, and to do some good for those in need at the same time.

The sale will run from now until the end of November.
