Anyway, I'm going to be posting some art to ebay soon. And I have decided to put up some prints on etsy. They will be prints that I embellish with acrylic, shimmering, shiny, stuff. I hope that they turn out. They are really small, so I am wondering if I offer them at a small price if it will be worth it to put them on etsy, because I read that I have to post each individually. Perhaps I can sell them as a sheet, (they are printed on a large sheet). What do you think, Etsy people?

Do you like this one? She is similar to the other girl holding stars and moons, etc.

I really like the peacefulness of this one. I wondered if I should change the lettering to be more serious, like a cursive type. What do you think?
I read so many blogs in which people post such important things. I feel like I am lucky to get my artwork posted. Oh, well. I am off to a new day and I feel good that I have some art to share.

I loved how she turned out. . . .

She had a sad experience which was the inspiration for this piece. A friend from school's mother died in her sleep over the summer. It was shocking and sad. I didn't know this girl's mother. I guess she had been sick for quite a while, but, still, it was unexpected. My dd asked me to paint a picture for her friend to give her after the funeral. She chose this quote and it turned out very nice. I never scanned that painting, so it is not here in my blog, but I did another one, larger, with the same quote. This is the result. My dd loves it and so she claimed it.
Well, I just love her. She is wood burned into wood and watercolored and painted with acrylics. I also collaged the background with scrapbook paper. I used pencil for the quote. I beeswaxed it also. :) Very happy painting for a very sad time for my daughter and her friend.

First, from my art journal!
This is the first page. I love the way the girl turned out. I relate these first three pages of my journal to my dear husband. He loves me and loves me. What more can I say?
