Since I took a vacation last week no painting got done, so if you’re checking in to find out why I have no ebay listings–that’s why! I’ve got a few sitting around waiting to sell, but I didn’t have the energy to do all the photos and write-ups for just a couple listings. I’m backContinue reading “I’m taking a week off ebay”
Today two lucky finds, this gorgeous Limoges cake plate for $1. What a pretty use of pink and blue! There’s a chip on the back side that show up a little on the edge, but it certainly doesn’t spoil the plate. And this print of a watercolor painting of Lombard Street, “the twistiest street inContinue reading “Thrifting: Limoges plate, and Lombard St.”
Here’s 3 paintings I’ll be putting up on ebay this week, on the 29th. Of July, if you’re looking at this next December! 2008. I was trying to keep up with the rainbow palette in oils. If I stop doing a technique, I immediately forget how to do it. I guess that’s why if youContinue reading “goats, greyhound, & a sheep painting for ebay”
This week I really got the swing of bright oil paints. I’ve been trying to go here for a long time, and this week finally was able to do it right! These will go up on ebay July 22. Isn’t this horse fantastic? And these rabbits are fabulous, too! The light highlight was weird inContinue reading “A horse, a rabbit, and a moose painting for ebay”
This horse painting was one of those that as I was working on it I was sort of “is this working right?” about it, but then once I set it aside and let it dry and then brought it out again I loved it. Sometimes it takes that time distance to see clearly, or maybeContinue reading “Jack Russell, & Horse Paintings for ebay”
I put up this happy girl in my etsy shop today. This week I worked on more-detailed backgrounds than I have been painting lately. And if you liked my chickadee series but thought they were over priced (as if!), I lowered the prices on the whole series a couple weeks ago. Etsy is a placeContinue reading “a Labrador painting for etsy”
While I’m updating my blog, I’ll show off two paintings I like that are going up on ebay this week (July 8). The bunny is in oil which always photographs horribly because the sunlight reflects off the oiliness of the dark colors. It doesn’t look like that when you hang it in your home, though.
Here are two paintings from photos I took at Melissa’s place. She has the cutest goats! I’ve got a ton more photos of everybody, so there will be a lot more paintings to follow. These will be in my ebay shop on July 1! I have another goat painting available right now on ebay thatContinue reading “Goats and a horse painting for ebay”
What a busy day today! Early thrifting, then playing in the park with playgroup, then McDonald’s for a meal and a lot more play time in the playland. It was of course my intention to never introduce Elle to McDonald’s, but that went by the wayside a while ago. Now it’s a treat to goContinue reading “Busy week”
I was kindly given a whole lot of Rhodesian Ridgeback photos to use as painting models from a lady who runs a rescue shelter in northern CA. This is Miles, and he’ll be up on etsy later today!
