Finishing off the year with these three, all for sale on Etsy.
I have really enjoyed painting animals in 2016. The chickens seem to be very popular and are really fun to paint. 2017 is the year of the Rooster, so of course I will have to include a few in my art this year.
Happy New Year!
Geese 3″ x 3″
This one’s for sale on Etsy.
Changing Seasons 8″ x 8″
It has been a very grey, rainy fall here in Vancouver. Maybe this painting will help to brighten things up a bit.
Available on Etsy.
A while ago I added some of my artwork to Red Bubble – a site that applies artwork to various products such as mugs, clothing, stationery and throw pillows. I haven’t told anyone about it before now, because I’m really not sure how I feel about it. Does having my artwork on a mug or sofa cushion devalue the original? Or does anyone really want this stuff?
This is all a big experiment and self-promotion has never been my strength. But if I’m going to advertise, I guess this is the season to do it. So here’s my gift guide:
Various products: Red Bubble
Original paintings: Etsy
The Boss 8″ x 8″
I really liked my previous chicken painting, so when I shipped it off to a customer last week I had a strong urge to paint another one. Here he is!
Sunny 24″ x 18″
This is Sunny. He’s my daughter’s best friend. I painted this for her as a birthday surprise. If it wasn’t for Isabelle’s love of horses, I don’t think I would be painting them now. The hours I spend with her and the horses are always fresh in my mind when I sit down to paint. As your kids grow, you assume that you will show them things and teach them, but it ends up being the other way around.
And here they are – my favourite girl and her favourite horse!
Elevator 3″ x 3″
This one is for sale on Etsy.
Bay 8″ x 8″
I enjoyed my time at the Southlands Country Fair last weekend. Thanks to everyone who stopped by my booth!
Rooster 3″ x 3″
Finished a couple more to bring to the Southlands Country Fair.
Lazy 24″ x 36″
Next Sunday, September 25, I will be at the Southlands Country Fair. I will be in the market showing and selling my work. If you need a painting of a horse or a chicken, come see me! The hours are 10 am – 5 pm, at the Southlands Riding Club.
