Serenity Through Leaf Raking, 2006. Ink, acrylic, watercolor on paper. 11 x 8". $120
Introducing Ian Dingman.
Now here are some sweet, poignant, AFFORDABLE original watercolors -- ones I'd consider giving as a gift. But is that a good idea? What's your experience been? Would you like a gift of art?
I've heard some pretty funny stories lately about ill-received gifts of works of art. Most of the awkwardness comes from the SCALE of the gift. i.e. "Where can i hide this thing until my mother-in-law visits?" Or in one extreme case, "There's NO place to hide this and my mother-in-law AND the LA Times Art Critic are both coming to dinner!"
So, I'm thinking these watercolor/drawings might not pose much risk (and likely would delight).

Field. 2007. Ink and watercolor on paper. 8.375 x 9". $140
Typical American Image. 2007. Ink and watercolor on paper. 4.5 x 5". $60
FYI, I found Ian's work on Tiny Showcase (his prints have sold out) where you can find other sweet prints, a new one offered each week for sale for $20. AND you can give the avid art collectors in your life a gift certificate so they can check each week and pick out their own swell piece. Perfecto!
