Welcome to 2018!

It wasn't long ago that I was struggling, like most artists, to make ends meet. During the lean years of 2012 - 2017, with a struggling economy trying to recover from the housing crash of 2019 here in the United States, artists found themselves a bit short on buyers. Understandable, since people were just trying to keep their heads above water for the most part - but it made it really hard to sell even extremely good pieces of work to even the most ardent collectors. 

But, that was then and this is - well, a new day. Things are looking up here economically now and there's no better time to invest in your local art scene. Who knows - that painting you buy for $400 from a local artist might be worth three times that much in just a year or two? 

It's a great time to be alive and a great time to be creative! Sales or not, this is the beginning of a brand new chapter for Owl Jones Art and I hope you'll hang with us and enjoy the ride!
