Birdsong Okotoks almost ready to roll

This is a big week for Birdsong Studio 2.0 in Okotoks.  The final pieces of our renovations will likely happen in the next five days.  The toilet and sink will get installed in the studio bathroom.  Baseboards will finish off the main studio and office.  Also, major work will happen outside as a sidewalk gets built and the driveway improved.  When all of that is done, we will have likely received our business license. 

With all of that in mind we are in the final stages of preparing our BIRDSONG OKOTOKS online art auction.  It will start on Sunday, August 18th and run to August 25th.  In this auction will be a number of original works, created since we have arrived in our new community, and a fresh selection of gallery canvas prints.  New items are being added every day in advance of the auction, so be sure to check back in from time to time.

As with all of our auctions, there are a couple of things to remember:

GST will be added to the final sale price.

Pick up will be available at Birdsong Studio (74 Elma Street W in Okotoks).

An extra shipping/handling charge will apply if you need us to send your purchase to you.

We have offered a BUY NOW option for the last several auctions we have hosted.  We are doing the same with the BIRDSONG OKOTOKS auction, with one new incentive.  When you choose the BUY NOW option you will receive FREE SHIPPING to anywhere in Alberta (or a $25 shipping credit to anywhere in the world).  When you choose the BUY NOW option with a gallery canvas print you will also get a FREE UPGRADE to an EP, or Embellished Print.  This is when extra embellishments are done by me to personalize the print and make it one of a kind.  It will be numbered 1/1, signed and dated.

We are also eager to begin connecting and contributing to our new community and will be donating the proceeds from some auction items.  We haven't decided which ones those will be quite yet or what charity we will be supporting.  That will be decided in the coming days.

We use the 32 Auctions online platform to host our major auctions.  You can register for free and preview the items that have already been added by clicking here.   If you see something you absolutely want and are ready to pay the BUY NOW price, you can pull the trigger on your purchase before the auction by send me a direct message via the Russell Thomas Art Facebook Page, or by sending me a text at 780-881-3752. If you are more comfortable with email, you can connect with me directly at
