poetry and prose about place

getting ready for December – a gallery of ‘within easy reach’ paintings

with 4 comments

On December 11, 2016 (from 10 AM to 4 PM), I will be at the Delta Hotel (Fredericton, New Brunswick) at Sandra’s Christmas Market Fredericton to sell my paintings and books. This is the first time I have ever tried selling at a craft show and I will be sure to report back on the experience.


I began preparing for this event in July, painting a number of small canvasses, all on themes associated with the poems in my book within easy reach (Chapel Street Editions, Woodstock, 2016). Here are a few of the paintings I will have for sale. They are all priced to sell and I will give a discount for anyone buying both a book and a painting.



August 20, 2016 ‘pick faster’ Jane Tims (10″ x 10″) acrylic, gallery edges ($45)


Jane Tims August 25 2016 'rose hips'

August 25, 2016 ‘rose hips’ Jane Tims (10″ x 12″) acrylic, gallery edges ($40)



October 21, 2016 ‘blueberries’ Jane Tims (5″ x 7″) acrylic, gallery edges ($30)



July 31, 2016 ‘wild strawberries’ Jane Tims (10″ x 8″) acrylic, gallery edges ($40)



August 14, 2016. ‘wild hops’ Jane Tims (12″ x 10″) acrylic, gallery edges ($50)



August 16, 2016 ‘high bush cranberries’ Jane Tims (12″ x 10″) acrylic, gallery edges ($55)


My books and paintings would be imaginative Christmas gifts for anyone who loves poetry, wants to re-kindle their own memories of berry picking or gathering other wild plants, or wants a small painting for a corner of a favourite room. I am thinking someone who has a home bar might like ‘wild hops’.


I hope the market goers love them! If you are in the Fredericton area on December 11, I hope to see you there!

  1. The pictures are wonderful. I think that my favorite is either Blueberries or Wild Hops. Best wishes at the at craft show.

  2. Good luck, Jane. I wish I could be there although I’d have a difficult time deciding which painting to buy because they are all beautiful. Maybe “pick faster” because it reminds me of picking berries when I was a child, but I do love those rose hips so maybe that.

    • I have loved painting these smaller canvases. I will be curious how well they do. I may have to designate a new wall in my house to ‘within easy reach’ paintings!

      No pressure but there’s always the mail.
