For years, the Artist Guide was sold in stores for $20, with about 3,000 folks picking up a copy. This year, we’re changing how we do business and doing everything it can to monumentally expand the fan base for local artists.
We’ve joined forces Good Times for the 2015 Tour, and with their help we will distribute 40,000 Guides this year. In late September, 35,000 full-color, glossy, magazine-style Guides will be inserted into the Good Times and will be distributed in Monterey and Santa Clara counties – FREE to anyone who picks up a copy. Cue the towering flames! Hear the roar of the crowd.
For fans who miss the September issue of the Good Times, and folks used to the classic system, we’ll have 5,000 Guides available, for just 5 bucks, in outlets throughout September and October. Plus, our Open Studios app has more cowbells, whistles, and functionality than ever.

So I do commissioned pieces as well as just paint stuff!!
People need to realize that when you are an artist, you really don’t make much for the time you put into your work unless your Andy Warhol or Pablo Picasso. Well yes both of them are dead but you get what I am trying to say!!!
I charge for commission per canvas size. Some people ask and I tell them how much and they are like “Wow! That is pricey!” Well you have to remember all the time that is put into a piece of artwork. Sometimes after hours and hours on a particular piece, I might end up making $10 per hour. Not enough to really pay the bills, see?!!!!
I am asking all of you potential customers, to understand that these personal pieces of art take time. Your getting something special of your very own of a beloved pet!!!
So now that I have said my peace, it’s time to start up another painting!!! 🙂
