This is what’s been going on tonite.
Finished ‘Oliver’ #2 over the weekend. The fish has a name, Chi. Why? you ask. Why not? say I.
A couple of details from the painting.
The painting currently on my easel.
A drawing from my sketchbook for the 100 thing drawing challenge.
Pics of my studio, cause I love seeing other people’s studios, soooooo…..
And a pic of my housemates 😉
Okay, some are showing as thumbnails, others as titles, just click on them and all should be well.
Here are some recent paintings:
Oliver 1 Oliver 2
Jodys mushrooms Self Portrait
I’ve got some other ideas percolating. Also I have a bunch of pretty amethyst colored crystals on my bead board waiting to be turned into a necklace…and maybe a bracelet..or earrings….or all of those. I’ll let you know 🙂
Etsy, as some may know, is an online site where artists and crafters can sell their (our) work. So now I have an Etsy store. Absolutely in it’s infancy, but I’m learning.
And yes, I have a confession. I have, for just this moment, misplaced my camera. I’m betting it shows up tomorrow, then I can post pics of my ‘Oliver’ series. He’s a new creature who just showed up when I was sketching and for someone so winsome, is surprisingly persistent in insisting that I create his paintings (what’s that you say? am I crazy? paintings talking to me?….well….yes).
My shop on Etsy is intheneverwas, all one word. So, www.etsy.com and search for intheneverwas.com.
I listed 2 pairs of earrings, a pretty necklace, and a tiny oil painting. Here’s a link to the painting https://www.etsy.com/listing/110045471/tiny-oil-painting-green-apples
Let me know what you think.
I’ll post new pics by the weekend. Finished another in the ‘Candle’ series.
More to come……
There is a school of thought that a truly productive artist will complete at least 2 paintings, drawings, etc each week. Ok, that’s a lot. Really. After all, I work all day and generally come home exhausted.
But that is an excuse. I’m going to give it my best effort. No, I’ll simply do it. Heh, there we go.
That’s it for tonite. Let me know what you think.
Ok, I found this website which will sell prints (all sizes, frames, on canvas, all kinds of formats) of my artwork. I get a percentage. Seems like a good idea soooooo……
Take a look and let me know what you think. And tell people about it too, Pleeeeeeeaaaassssse. 😀
Thanks. More pictures soon. I kind of had an anger attack today and threw some things around in my studio, arg. No permanent damage to anything. Heh. Ah well.
Finished this one last night. It had been sitting unfinished for years and last night I just wanted to to paint on something that I didn’t have to care about. And then it turned out wonderfully. Before it was so lack luster. It turned out much darker-in color and mood- than intended when I started it.
Wow, that I can finally update my blog again. Okay, I was going to go into a rant about server errors, etc., but it’s working again so here’s what I have lately.
Part of the ‘candle series’. Less serene than the others, but I am not always (or even often) serene and I am tired of holding back.
‘3+2= a murder’ This is the first of the crow series.
‘The Rescue’ second of the crow series.
Heh, me. Definitely time to clean up.
Amazing how time can get away from a person. Anyway, here’s what’s on my easels right now, let me know what you think. More soon.
