Osgod the Owl, and new work coming up

Well here's yet another post and a painting!!  This has to be a record for me.  :)

This guy is Osgood the Owl and of course he is available in Etsy should have a strong desire to purchase him.   Just click the word Etsy and it will take you straight there. 

He is made with acrylic paint, glitter and pretty yellow flowers on another 6in x 6in canvas.  He's the last of the small canvases that are done for now.  I am working on another cat in that size, since you all like kitty's so much, which of course I don't blame you since I have four of them running around the house myself.  :)

Today I will hopefully spend some time painting.  That is if I can get off the darn computer.  I have a pig, a cat, and Easter Bunny in the works right now, and I hope hope HOPE to get at least one done by the end of the day. 

Keep your fingers crossed for me, that I will stay off the computer and stop shopping on Etsy!

Bertie the Bird! A New painting, and what I'm up too the week...

This little guy is already in the shop but I thought I'd post him to the blog in case some of you missed his debut. 

This is Bertie the Bird, who reminds me of a chicken.  :)  He's painted on 6in x 6in canvas.  Still loving that little size.   So much fun!  I love his sparkly blue background (can't get enough of glitter), and his collaged paper patchwork arm. 

This one is my husbands favorite, and I think he secretly hopes he doesn't sell.  I like him a lot too, but would love for him to find a home that would love him just as much or more!  You can find him on Etsy of course. 

As to what's going on now... Well, I've totally switched gears this week after my 6 day painting spree last week.  Right now I'm spending most of my time working on the business side of things.  Oh my goodness is it ever overwhelming!  I'm learning about SEO's, proper tagging, keywords, backlinks, new social media, etc. etc. I so wish I got paid for the hours I put into this!  It's interesting stuff, but very time consuming, and it totally sucks up your life.  Hence, I haven't had a chance to paint yet this weekend.  I'm hoping to organize my office area today and then paint later this afternoon.  Wish me luck!

Meet Fang Jr!!

Oh my gosh, is it possible that I am blogging 3 days in a row??  I guess that's what happens when I have a bunch of new paintings to list.  :)

I wanted you guys to meet Fang Jr.  He is much smaller than the original, only 6in x 6in on canvas.  I decided to redo him because he's such a popular piece.  Most everyone seems to like him, so I decided to do a small and cheaper version for those who may want an original but couldn't afford the original original.  Does that make sense?

Well that was fast, he sold already!  I guess I won't go into my whole Etsy speech now.  :)

Have a great Friday everyone! And Keep warm!

Another new painting!

This is Fergie the Frog Princess.  She is another 6 in x6in canvas.  I have a total of eight of these cute canvases and so far 6 are done.  A really fun size to work with actually.  I was worried it would be hard because they are smaller than I'm used to, but it wasn't too bad at all.  If you are interested in her she is hopping around Etsy I hear, just click this link:

In other news, I think this week may be more devoted to business rather than painting.  I'm trying really hard to get my name out there again, since after disappearing for 4 months, I kinda fell completely off the social media radar.  And oh my gosh it's hard work getting back on. Stumbleupon, Etsy, Twitter, Facebook etc.  The list goes on and on.  I sure learned a lesson, and I dearly hope that when the baby comes I will be able to find some time to keep going at this.  I think I hear many of you laughing right now, and I don't blame you.  Obviously I have no idea what I'm in for, and I do realize all my time will be monopolized at first, but I'm really hoping I can find a way to incorporate my art into my life while raising a baby.  After all we are going to be sharing the same room.  Her nursery is my studio too.  So hopefully she can play a bit while I paint a bit.  That's possible right??

Have a good day everyone, I hope your day isn't going like mine right now.  Too many computer issues.

a little hello and a new painting...

Wow, it's been a long time again since I posted to my blog. I don't know what happens, but the time seems to get away from me and before I know it months have gone by between postings.

Plus, I've been pretty active announcing everything I do on Facebook, Twitter and Etsy, that when it comes to blogging I feel it's already been said and heard before.  Does anybody else feel this way?

But today I thought I'd check in again, and say hi to everyone, and show you my latest painting.  In case you haven't been on any social media sites lately (doubtful), and don't already know, I've been in a major painting frenzy for the last 5 days.  That's alot of painting!  I finished 9 of them. Can you believe that?  Of course I'm only showing one right now, as the others will be announced one a day throughout the week.  Need to keep you in suspense! 

Anyway this little piece is an original painting on 6 in x 6 in canvas called Beatrice the Bee. If you are interested in her she can be found buzzing around Etsy waiting for a new home...Check her out if you like...

Until next time,which hopefully will be sooner than last time.  :)
