Dear Art Lover I am real excited! I bought a beautiful artwork made by my fellow artist Annabel Keatley. You can see it a bit further below! I have had the wish and plan to install in our apartment a gallery wall of small paintings by my artist friends for quite a while. But THIS was the final push to act:
The Artist Support Pledge
The Artist Support Pledge is an initiative started by Matthew Burrows, a painter based in London. It gives artists the opportunity to support other artists, and at the same time make some income in a time when we need alternative ways of showing our work. The idea is that the artist offers for sale works under € 200, by posting them on their social media platforms (Instagram) and tagging them with hashtag #artistsupportpledge. When the artists have made € 1,000 due to sales, she or he pledges to buy another artists work for the total of 200 Euro.
Based on trust, generosity and community spirit this initiative is bringing artists together and is also a great way for art lovers to find new artists and buy affordable art.
I couldn’t wait for selling enough because this was an opportunity!!! I have been in love with Annabels paintings for so long. The watercolor captures a view of Cabo de Gata by Annabel Keatley. See more of her work on her website and Instagram account.
In the following I am presenting my first available works, so as to give you first option before my posts go live.
I sent out a newsletter two days ago and today I started to post my available works on my social media accounts. Already three are waiting to be shipped to their new home!
You find me on Instagram here: oppellandhampelart and here on my Facebook account. If you don’t have one of these accounts you can follow my Post News on my website www.artgoppellandhampel.com by subscribing at the bottom of this page.
All paintings are offered unframed. Due to the post office being closed here in Spain, I will ship as soon as its possible. Shipping is not included in the price.
If you would like to buy a painting please get in touch and I will mark that painting sold when l put it up on my Social Media feed.
This is my first choice for the Artist Support Pledge Initiative
I choose works on paper. Most of them have been created during the lockdown.
Each of these paintings is ca. 41 x 30 cm , mixed media on paper and sells for 170 Euro.
Each painting is ca. 50×32 cm, acrylic or mixed media on paper and sells for 200 Euro. If you wish so I send the painting with a white mat (passpartout) that can fit a standard frame. They will be signed in the front.
Last not least: Two paintings on stretched canvas!

I have been writing in my Blog News about my private initiative to reward with one of my
“Desert Trip Prints” those who donate more than 100 Euro to a welfare organisation in their community! I already had the pleasure to be rewarded with an artwork of my artist friend Anne Bedrick of whom I copied this idea. Read all details about the rules here:
Do something for your community and be rewarded with art!
Here is something to spend your time joyfully (hopefully not stressed!) with art:
Why you might be failing some paintings ……because they are puzzles!
