Well, here are two more pieces that are going on my Etsy Store/Gallery wall. These two are from a recent trip to Liberty Farms in Boothbay. I have eaten eggs from these chickens.. It is nice to have connections but the more I think about the egg thing the more I realize these Chickens probably wouldn't like me..
Here are two of the four recently added works to my online Gallery. the link to it is located in the upper right hand side of the blog or HERE.
I'm guessing if yesterday was Small Business Saturday and tomorrow is Cyber Monday, today must be Catch Your Breath Sunday..
Here are three more small works I just added to my STORE. If you find the Black Friday hustle too much. Please, click on the word store and look around. I would love to hear about how much happier your loved one was receiving Art as a gift instead of another disposable gift.
Have a Great and Safe Thanksgiving!!
I have been adding new small works to my online gallery/store and thought I would keep posting with some images when I do. This piece shown "Midnight Oil" is just a little 5x7" oil sketch for a modest price. I am always trying to look for color harmonies from life and the simple tea/coffee cup is great fodder for an enthusiastic painter. Here is a link to the STORE
This piece "Dancers" approx 6x8" is one of a few new entries into my online gallery/store. here is the link STORE This store will iinclude special priced sketches and some older small works for older prices. I will be adding more pieces as my schedule allows.
While im here... Thank you for the encouragement and kind words that make their way to me. This makes the days a much brighter.
Today I have finally opened my Etsy STORE! Here I will be selling my watercolor figure paintings and the occasional small oil for special prices. At least that's the idea. All of the water color figures will be shipped free for the listed price within the US and a moderate up charge for Canada. Everywhere else, email me. Click on the word "Store" above to see what is there.
So the watercolors have been a secret love of mine for a little while and while trying to get a grasp on this elusive medium i started in monochrome. Well, it turns out the mono chrome is kinda fun and lets me explore in a different way than Oil and Color. I love it!
I would love to hear some feedback on these if you are reading this. Thank you for stopping by!
Well, I guess I should talk about this before the show is down. The image here shows part of my painting "Glory Bound" 24x30" with it's Second Place ribbon and it People's Choice Award ribbon. Here is a link to an article About the show in a local newspaper the Boothbay Register. Now if you go back in Blog history or are an astute "Life from Painter" you will know that this is the same show I was rejected from last year. So to have two pieces accepted was great and to receive recognitions for one of them is amazing. This show Is a big one in Maine. I couldn't find the numbers for this year online but in 2010 there were 575 entries for about 100 spots on the walls. I'm sure there were near that this year also. If you read the article you can also see a sky view photo of the show. Thanks for stopping by.
