Well it has been a wonderful time on Etsy for the last 18 months. I now have 95 sales!! To celebrate, I am offering 1/2 price on sales 96-100 (excluding shipping) ! Offer good until Nov 7. Nothing excluded. I mean it. I love Etsy and the people who populate it with their arts and crafts and personal interaction with other sellers. Here is a snapshot of a few my current listings.
Here is a truly great gift idea! CustomDogBananas, a fine artisan with a shop on Etsy, is creating custom wooden jigsaw puzzles using some of my images, your custom photograph, or art from other Etsians. Here is a look at the first one she has made from my work. This one includes 5 "figurals", special shapes that are 3 birds, one anchor and a sailboat. Others will be available on her web site soon. It is spectacular! It is created from a print of my painting Tangier Island. (The original of this painting has been purchased by the Tangier Island History Museum.)
You have not seen an abstract from me for a while. Funny thing happened several years ago when strolling through an art show with my mother-in-law. She pointed to a booth and said, "those are absurds." I said, "you mean abstracts?" She said, "well, yes, absurd, abstract, whatever."
Here is Abstraction, original 21" x 29", watercolor with a bit of collage, available in my Etsy shop.
A client is going to purchase these 2 prints from my Etsy shop to hang together in her dining room. Her table is decorated with Fiesta Ware. She asked how I thought they would look together, and I think they would be great! Both have the same theme, and shades of red and yellow. However, one is vertical and one is horizontal. I think the placing the vertical on the left with the horizontal on the right, with their middles on the same line, would be perfect. What do you think? (I cannot get them spaced apart, but you get the idea.)
Hello all, Here is a new piece in my Ports of Call Series of great waterside restaurants at Lake of the Ozarks. This makes 12 in the series. Prints are available at Lake Galleon and ArtPho Gallery at the lake. They are selling so well that I am spending my days in town, Tues, Wed, Thurs., printing and packaging prints instead of painting new spots. But I did make time for this very popular venue, Franky & Louie's. On the drawing board; Ozark Bar-B-Que. Pit Stop, The Duck, DockKnockers, Fish & Co. , The Barge. Stay tuned.....
Hello again, Forgive my absence. We lost our dog and got a new puppy and took a trip and have been everywhere but at home acting normal. Finally back in the groove and painted a couple of loose happy florals.
Here is Tall Black Iris, 11" x 14", original watercolor painting
Here is Tulip Bouquet, 11" x 14", original watercolor painting
I truly love irises. They are big, tall, fragrant, colorful, hardy, reliable, showy, long-lived, what more can you want from your flower garden. This painting is from a bouquet I cut last Tuesday for my son's birthday dinner.
Here is Iris Bouquet, 15" x 20", original watercolor painting available in my Etsy shop or on Ebay.
