I’ve also finished a number of marine paintings, most of which will help worthy organizations here in the St. Augustine area – Catholic Charities (food pantry), Ark Wildlife Rescue (save abandoned pelicans, river otters, etc), Life Services of St. Johns County (pro-life help for those pregnant), and the St. Johns County Sheriff Association (to get me out of speeding tickets – just kidding). They’ll be using the paintings in their fundraisers, which I’ll post when available.
Thirdly, I’ve launched a fine art website, www.robertkroeger.com, which I did for a few reasons. First, it gives me a chance to compete with some of the best artists in America – James Crandall, Derek Penix, and many others. I’ll enter a painting each month in their Bold Brush contest, which are judged by a notable artist. Secondly, since the FASO service is extremely computer-friendly, it allows me to offer some paintings for sale, which a few folks have asked me about in the past. These are small (6x8 to 11x14) paintings, unframed, and can be mailed without shipping charges. I’ve divided them into four categories – old barns, marine, doors of Santa Fe, and those in the Four Winds office, which do incur a shipping charge since they’re panels on a wood frame with wrapped edges (can be hung with or without a frame). Though almost all of my paintings go into fund raisers – which I’m glad I can afford to do – this site will give others a chance to acquire them. I should probably get these painting on Facebook and Instagram, but there’s only so much time in the day.
I will still maintain the barnart.weebly.com site and continue to post the barn paintings and essays on this site. Preserving memories of old barns – in paintings and essays – remains my foremost motivator. Until next month ...
