Ok, I might be done with the BRAF Fund Raiser Sale but they are still chugging along til about the end of the first week in January. This piece above "Chubby Frosty" 12x12 is (I think) still for sale. Now I'm not shipping it but if you want it talk to them about shipping to you. I have just mailed out 99% of the pieces (one international left ) and the large free one and I am fresh out of time for the post office. Sorry. Here is the phone number for the BRAF 1 (207) 633 2703. They have about 9 pieces left of mine.

Reposting to go with the Holiday! Also here is my new website http://danielcorey.com/ It's not done yet as far as images and its really just been started. I'm not going for a traditional website with just my work and nothing personal. After New Year look for updates. Merry Christmas!

Recently I have been drawing more and more so I naturally started looking at what is available for sketchbooks out there and found Stillman & Birn.. These are not your average sketchbook, archival quality and the particular ones in the above image (Beta Series) are 180# natural white with enhanced wet media strength.
Oh yeah, they are bound in the USA so I like that it's helping some employment here. We could use it.
So the post title "I Won, I Won!!" is because I did win. I "liked" the Stillman & Birn Facebook page and noticed they do a giveaway every once in a while. Well, I'm not sure how often to be honest but it seems pretty regularly. So a while back I signed up for one (just an email for notification) and lost. That didnt surprise me cause i always lose raffle type contests. So I noticed a new contest near Christmas time, I entered and won!! This image is what I saw when I opened the box. A nice presentation and very generous prize, a 7x7 and 7x10 Beta Series Sketchbook. Thank you Stillman & Birn!!
Here is a link to their site: http://www.stillmanandbirn.com/
I will share some sketches soon. Incase I don't post again before Christmas.. Happy Holidays!

Click Here to Buy Now thru Paypal after clicking to purchase please write a description of which one you would like. example "I would like the painting of the girl on the bottom of the middle row" or you can use the title that Sargent used "Egyptian Girl" After one is sold I will write in the comments if it has sold.
So first things first, i am calling it a day on the BRAF fund raiser sale. I will leave the paintings that are here up til the day after Christmas then they will be gone. I have raised some decent money for the BRAF and would like a little of my life back so I am done. So you have almost a week to decide if you want any of the pieces left posted here. Also Kyle has pieces for sale on his blog to benefit the BRAF. I'm not sure when he is calling it a day but I'm sure you can still buy whatever he has there advertised for the BRAF at the special low price. Thank you Kyle! your a stand up guy, great painter. Thank You to everyone who participated!
Last things last.. The image above are my 5x5" and 5x7" Sargent Studies. (on gesso board) These are for sale for $100 plus $15 priority shipping. These are not just studies but small paintings in there own right. I cropped them, interpreted the colors and simplified Sargent. I'm not sure how the image will work out when clicked on but if you're interested in one and want a good image emailed just let me know. Also if you purchase one, click the link above and in the area for special instruction describe which one you want, either by location on the board, colors or the title if you know them. thanks for stopping by.
I will re-post my Snowman Painting Video just before Christmas.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year ! If celebrate something else, have a great something else!

Here's the rules.. I always wanted to say that. Seriously though, here's the rules. The first person to answer the three questions right and be a signed up "follower" of this blog wins this 24x30" painting of Murry's Hill Landing. I will pay shipping in US. You pay if outside US. Fair? Fair.
Here's your three questions.reminder all answers are on this blog some old some new...
1. How many posts did I make on this blog in the year 2009?
2. What is my wife Raquele's Birthday? (this one is very important, she is a great woman.)
3. How many Fund Raiser Paintings are currently left for sale ? (As of the time of me asking this)
Good Luck! I Love you all equally!
