Oh my GOODNESS, I’ve opened a real-live etsy shop! For now it’s called “RitaARTloff” get it? No? Ok, then come up with a better name. because my brain is tired.
I cannot BELIEVE this! Thank you SOSOSO MUCH to everyone who has supported me. I am overwhelmed!
Go here and buy all the things! (please?) : https://www.etsy.com/shop/RitaARTLoff?ref=search_shop_redirect
If you’ve been following me on social media, you’ll know that I’ve accidentally become an artist. No one is more surprised about this than I am, believe me.
Some of you have asked that I create an Etsy shop, and I think I will eventually. However, it’s Christmastime and I don’t have the mental strength to 1) create a “business” 2) using a platform (etsy) that I am not familiar with AND 3) create enough inventory to stock said etsy store.
In the meantime, I’ve cobbled together a few items that ARE available and I’ll be happy to get them to you either by meetup or delivery (if you’re in the OKC metro) or by mail if you’re out of town. How much is shipping? I have no idea! I will have to let you know. Aren’t I an excellent, excellent businesswoman? I know!
You can purchase these paintings with a check, cash, or by paypal. All paintings are back-stapled and the designs wrap around the canvas in such a way that framing isn’t necessary (although you COULD, you know).
Leave a comment in this blog post and let me know which piece you’re interested in and we’ll make arrangements to get your painting to you. This is not unlike buying a watch out of someone’s coat on the street in New York City. High tech!
To make it easier to identify which painting you’re interested in, I’ve NAMED each piece. Which cracks me up, because naming paintings is what ARTISTS do, and I’m just a HOUSEWIFE and I have no business NAMING PAINTINGS.
Or selling them, for that matter. But here we are.
“Hen Party” | 24″x24″ | $50 Sold! Birds & Blooms | 12″x36″ | $55 Sold! Love Birds | 16″x24″ | $42 Sold! Proud Parents | Set of 2: ea. 16″x24″ | $85 for set Sold! “Colorful Mess” | 30″x40″ | $85 Available for purchase on etsy. Go here. “Rejection” | 24″x36″ | $75 Sold! (Ok, I’m actually keeping this one. Because I like it. But you can email me if you just HAVE to have it and I’ll sell it to you. Maybe. Probably.)
One last word: I also take commissions. Once a woman texted me photos of her furniture and rugs and I painted an abstract piece that pulled in all of her colors. You can do that too!
What I can’t do: exactly duplicate a previous painting. I’m sorry. I’m not that good. But I can try really hard!
So, if you see something you like, and it’s sold, or it’s not the right colors, or maybe it’s just not the right size, comment below and I’ll see if I can help you.
ps – I have to thank everyone who has been so dang supportive of this accidental endeavor. From friends who told friends about me, to my husband (who shows people my paintings like some proud new parent. It’s adorable).
