Site Updates!

by Samuel Foote on 06/07/13

I'm currently updating this place after more than a year and a half....This should be a lot of fun!  I have a whole bunch of new work to add and will be refreshing the look a bit.  My sales site, linked to the shop section is on Etsy and is external.  I should have at least 50 new items including prints up very soon.   

I also have a new art show available to view this month of June at my favorite coffee shop the Hub 32 Cheney st Reno Nv,.  The show seams to be going well so far.  I sold my first painting before I could get them all up on the walls!  I hope the rest of the month goes just as well....

I am fully recommitting myself to my art, my family,  and my fans after too long a time of absence.  

Speaking of family, as of 7am this June 7th 2013 I am the proud uncle of a baby girl Zoey!  I cannot express deeply enough my pride in my brother Dan and his girl Kim.  I have no doubt they will make excellent parents!

 Stay tuned

Postings and Pricing

by Samuel Foote on 11/13/10

I'm going to be alternating my posting from major to more minor works. My strategy of late when doing shows is to have a wide section of price points to chose from when considering the purchasing of my work. For example, and partially as a necessity of the economy, I start small. 8"x10" is my staple. I'm now currently displaying 14 8"x10's" , witch I am switching out with new one's as they are sold. From there the works incrementally increase is size and price. In the ongoing Hub show, I have several larger pieces as well. Some of my painting's are out of harmony with this scheme as they are piece I've dedicated special attention, and consequently, more time too. I will some times work on paintings over years, rather than days! As example, check out TURMOIL, in the gallery.

It used to take me a long time to paint a picture. Recently my technique and process has improved greatly. I can now paint a piece in 3 or 4 sessions no problem. In the last month I have painted nearly 20 new works, a record for me, including the making of at least a dozen frames, etc.

Expect up dates from me far more often!!!

Make a great day!

Sexuality at the university of Reno Nevada. 

Tory and her husband Justine, are two very kind

and understanding people.  If you would like a

consultation, or have questions  on matters

relating to your sexual well being, then I strongly

suggest you go to Tory's website

Under Construction

by Samuel Foote on 07/31/10

I'm giving this place a bit of a make over. 

In a couple of days, every thing will be funtional again.


by Samuel Foote on 05/13/10

I currently have a show at the Hub coffee Co. in Reno. It will be showing until the end of this month of May. If you happen to find your self in this neck of the woods check it out! The hub has become not only one of my favorite hang-outs, but for artists, musicians,and academics of all types. The staff are incredibly cool and outgoing, and another bonus, the coffee is the best you'll likely find in town.

It is quite the sociable place and I rarely go there with out finding someone very interesting to talk to.

The only thing worse than selling a painting is being poor and unable too make more!
