Scotia, , NY - Betty Pieper, artist from Scotia, NY, has sold four orignial small works from her Slide Rock Series featured on Fine Art America.
Although originals are not sold directly through FAA, collectors are given means to contact artists privately which a collector
from southern California did thus resulting in the sale. Ms. Pieper notes that another collector on the seacoast just miles away owns three originals.
She adds, "One year more than half my work went to people in California. They must like my work as much as I love
the beauty and diversity of their state!"
