First of all, I am wishing everyone including myself a Happy "Ninja" New Year! I am excited. I gave myself permission awhile ago and I hope I continue to listen to my voice telling me to "go ahead, do it, do it." I know. . . "do what?" Well . . . "whatever within reason." That means a lot. I have opened my own Etsy shop. If you would like to take a look, type in Peggi Kroll Roberts in the search box, click on that and it should take you to my store. This is where I am selling my "personal, experimental, not what the galleries want" work. And because of that I am able to sell it at affordable prices. Heaven knows there are so many artists and works out there that I would love to own but I simply cannot afford most of it. I do trades but I can't come up with the $$. AND! I wish people would look for ORIGINAL art and not all these giclee prints! I mean it's simply "Ink on Paper" and I think they are WAY OVER PRICED! Priced accordingly I would NOT have a problem with it. Now that does NOT INCLUDE wonderful woodcuts, mono prints etc. I want to know the artist had a real hand in it. I mean you can go into a museum shop and find a wonderful poster of a master work for what? 25 bucks?? So why would I pay $1000 for a print! And especially if it had a run of 200 or more. Come on! I don't believe they will hold their value. Sorry, but that is the way I feel about it. Buy Original art.
Below are the recent works in gouache that I will be placing in my Etsy store. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. "If you don't ask, you don't get." I simply want to "Paint, teach and sell."

"Table Top with Blue Creamer"
"Table Top with Olive Oil"

"Table Top with Backlighting"
