I've recently been inspired by an artist friend to consider the idea of artwork as a gift. That is, the enjoyment/inspiration that comes with experiencing a work of art is a free gift passed from artist to viewer/owner. The actual object you pay for. But that something extra that comes with art, that's free.
Additionally, there's been a lot of talk about a gift society, and to put that idea in motion, artists in NYC have opened the "Free Store." The Seattle Art Museum is advertising the fact that you can pay what you wish to visit the museum.
It is in this spirit of gift giving that I offer up the following five paintings for whatever you wish to pay (nothing, perhaps?). I've been busy cleaning and organizing my studio and I have found that these paintings don't exactly fit in my body of work. However, I'd hate to just dispose of these and thus I am looking for some good homes for the paintings. If you'd like to have one, please email me at jtkirkland [at] gmail [dot] com. If you do not live in the D.C. area, I will ask that you help with shipping costs.
Thanks so much for looking and please let me know if you'd like one.
