Paintings Sold in 2017

Sunflower PaintingI love lists and especially gratitude and success lists.

Each year, I track which paintings sold so I can express my appreciation to the universe for bringing me awesome collectors like you.

For example, this sunflower was collected by one of my art students. She herself is learning how to paint and finds inspiration being surrounded by art that she loves.

If you want to surround yourself with art, you can also own the luxury of a fine art original.

Pigs have been especially popular among my collectors. You can’t collect this one (an original means it is one of a kind)

However, you can collect prints of any of the artwork you see here. If you can’t find it on my website, please just respond to this email. I would love to create a custom print or even a special commission just for you.

In 2017, I sold 19 originals and also completed 7 commissions of pets, homes and people.

In this blog post, you can explore some of my favorite originals. Animal art continues to be a best selling subject for me as 12 of the paintings collected last year were either dog portraits or original animal art.

However, purple irises, sunflowers and collages were all collected as well as popular and charming Word Art. ( I still have two empowering word art paintings in the studio, gift ready for that special sweetheart)

Enjoy the beauty of flowers all year long >>

About Miriam

In case we haven’t met yet, I’m an artist and founder of The Inspiration Place, where I help other artists learn how to profit from their passion. Through online classes, business coaching programs, and a top-ranked podcast, I’ve helped thousands of artists around the world develop their skill sets and create more time and freedom to do what they love. My signature coaching program, The Artist Incubator, helps artists go from so-so sales to sold-out collections.

A graduate of Dartmouth College and M.I.T, I initially pursued finance but after witnessing 9/11, I abandoned a lucrative hedge fund job to work on my art full time. Since then, my art and my story have been featured in major publications including Forbes, The New York Times, Art of Man, Art Journaling magazine as well as featured on NBC’s “Parenthood” and the Amazon series “Hunters” with Al Pacino. My forthcoming book with HarperCollins Leadership on how to make it as an artist is scheduled to be released January 31, 2023. When I’m not in the studio, you can find me hanging out with my husband, adult kids, and a tuxedo cat named Ebony. I’d love to invite you to check out one of my free resources for art lovers (of every passion level) at
