I am writing this on November 17, 2015, and this is the day when I am pulling all my available paintings out of the conventional transaction economy, and switching completely to the newly emerging gift economy, also known as generosity-based economy.
You see, in my ideal world, art is not a commodity. And I believe deeply that the only possible path to change the world is to be the change. Thus my paintings are offered to you as gifts — as freely as they come to me.
Most of my studio time is dedicated to the "Sonnets in colour" series nowadays, which is not available in any form till it's complete (and that will take a few more years). But there are some paintings available — both old and new; I have organized them into several sets for easier browsing, and you can have any of them as a gift from me.
What I ask for in return is a letter: a few words from you about the painting you have chosen: what does this painting mean for you? Why do you want it on your wall? Just click the link below any available painting to request as a gift and write me a letter.
This way of sharing paintings is both new and old, and I am still trying to feel my way about how to set it up in the globalized world.
For now, I am using my Patreon account to organize it, which means you will have to make at least a nominal pledge of support to participate in this program (I believe $1 per month is the minimum), and leave your mailing address there (in case you haven't heard about Patreon before, it's a micro-patronage website, which helps you support artists (musicians, writers, visual artists) who share their work freely with the world).
I will also ask you to pay for shipping and handling (but as you will see on my Patreon page, there are some exceptions).
If you want to support my work, you can do it in two ways: with a Patreon pledge of monthly support, or with a one-time donation. If a one-time donation feels like as a better way to reciprocate my gift of painting with your support, please mention this in your e-mail, and I'll send you a link to my PayPal account).
If you have any additional questions, I'll be happy to answer them by e-mail.
