I'm an artist. I paint mostly in oils. In early 2006 I took on a project I call Everyday Paintings, which was what I thought would be a daunting but doable goal of painting a new painting everyday, making them competent paintings, beautiful and hopefully valuable. Believing that something is only as valuable as what someone is willing to pay for it, I determined to test the market using solely eBay for sales, and along the way, building a list of contacts who are interested in my work.

Since I do good work, and a day of good work ought to be worth at least $100, I start each auction with a minimum bid of $100.

To be added to my FREE Everyday Paintings mailing list (you will receive a small picture via e-mail of each new painting I do, plus notification of any new Paintcast™), please visit my Everyday Paintings site: http://www.everydaypaintings.com . There is a sign-up box on the right column.

You can read all about me and my art background at http://www.DarrowArt.com (my larger, older website), and by reading my personal blog there. (Yes, I maintain more than one blog).

    Robert Allen Darrow Memorial Tribute

    Memorial Tribute: (File-size: 270MB) My father died of prostate cancer. The upside of that is it gave us time to be with him, love him and literally say our goodbyes. I made this video of his life and presented it to him on Father's Day 2005.
