12 Days of Christmas Art Challenge and Sale

November 16, 2014

My 12 Days of Christmas Art Challenge and Sale is on NOW! Inspired by the recent Black and White Photo Challenge on Facebook, I have set a goal to produce small affordable art pieces over the last half of November, hopefully one new painting or drawing every 2 days.

Orpheum Neon sign watercolour and ink miniature by Tiana

Orpheum Neon watercolour and ink miniature by Tiana Kaczor

Orpheum Neon is the first art piece. It is a watercolour and ink drawing of Vancouver’s Orpheum theatre sign. It is based on a photo I took a couple years ago while walking along Granville St.

Get your hands on some new original artworks for the price of a dinner out, and treat your friends, family, or yourself to a one of a kind gift!  All art will be available for sale in my Etsy store. Head over and take a look. Check back every couple of days for new additions.

Tiana’s Etsy Store is Now Open

November 30, 2013

Now you can buy original and printed art by me on my Etsy store Tiana Kaczor Fine Arts. There’s still time before Christmas to pick up a hand printed photograph or a miniature watercolour. Or if you live near Vancouver, B.C. (so we don’t have to rely on mailing times) there’s even time to commission a watercolour or drawing based on a photo of your choice.
Visit my store here:  

I’m still learning about the wonderful word of Etsy, researching how other artists and craftspeople list their wares, so it’s been a little slow for getting some of my art up for sale, but you will find a few items there now.
I’m listing a variety of mediums and styles in hopes of getting some feedback from window shoppers and buyers about what they’re interested in getting.  Prices range from around $10 to $400.
I will be uploading more artworks for sale in the next few weeks, so keep checking back for new stock. Original watercolour postcards and vintage computer art prints are next on my list for stocking my shelves.

Grand Prix competition piece for sale

Tiana creates during Steveston’s Grand Prix of Art 2012

A couple weekends ago I competed in Steveston’s Grand Prix of Art. We were told our location only minutes before the race, and then had 3 hours to complete a finished work of art, whether it be drawing or painting. http://grandprixofart.com/?p=890

This is the first time I’ve ever entered a plein air competition and decided to keep things less messy by using conte and pastels instead of paint. The weather was rather chilly and an hour into the race my fingers started to freeze up. Luckily my parents came by and brought me a hot chocolate. Thanks also to Eva at Cannery Cafe for offering to bring me something hot.

"Pieces and Points" conte and pastel, 8x12, for sale $200 framed, $170 mat only.

“Pieces and Points” conte and pastel, 8×12, for sale $200 framed, $170 mat only.

It was great creating on the streets of Steveston as it gave me direct contact with the public; art can be such a solitary activity a lot of the time, working away in ones studio. Thanks to everyone who stopped by to take a peek at my picture and encourage me to finish in the 3 hour time limit. It wasn’t easy working so fast with no break but I did finish “Pieces and Points” just as the Cannery horn blew to signal the stop of the race. The title was chosen because the store Pieces is in my drawing, and points refers to the pointillism style I used, which turned out to look a bit like snow falling. (Maybe that was subliminal because I was cold!)

Terracotta Warriors Online Charity Auction

July 19, 2012

The Terracotta Warrior sculptures for the BC Lions Society Project are now online at GoBid.ca –  http://www.gobid.ca/  and are open for bidding starting at $2,000.  You have the opportunity to bid until Wednesday, September 26th at noon, where the bids will close and the highest bidders will be contacted to have their bids moved over to the Live Auction at The Great Banquet and Auction on Thursday, September 27th, 2012.  You will be able to continue bidding by either attending the banquet or participating via telephone or absentee bid.

Wu Chang on the Richmond Cultural Centre steps

Tiana Kaczor’s “Wu Chang” is currently on the Richmond Cultural Centre’s steps.

For a direct link to my warrior, Wu Chang, #31,  on the auction site go here:  http://www.gobid.ca/cgi-bin/single_display.pl?item_id=1349776

The starting bids of $2000 are a steal. I can’t speak for other artists, but a blog post below explains it, and I’ll tell you again, that I spent more than 175 hours painting my warrior and thus a decent price would be over $5,000. Add on the cost of making the fibreglass sculpture and you can raise that price up to $10,000.  So, dig deep into your pocket books, have some fun at the auction, get a great piece of original art, and remember, this is for charity too!
