‘Oliver’ and others

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.

Working like crazy

I’ll post new pics by the weekend.  Finished another in the ‘Candle’ series.

More to come……

A Goal

October 13th, 2011

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.

So here are some that I am working on and some that I just finished.

That’s it for tonite.  Let me know what you think.

Imagekind account

August 29th, 2011

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.

Quick post

August 26th, 2011

 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.

All I can say is…Wow.

August 22nd, 2011

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.

crow series‘3+2= a murder’ This is the first of the crow series.

‘The Rescue’ second of the crow series.

Clean up timeHeh, me.  Definitely time to clean up.
