New Summer Painting!

This painting is inspired by the magical, summer nights of my childhood. Fairies were a big part of it. ^_^ We had a fairy ring in our woods; on warm, summer nights, my sister and I would sneak around the dark forest's edge trying to get a peak at the fairies frolicking at their parties around their tiny bonfires. Such magic in the air during those summer nights long ago.
This painting is called "Summer Night Magic". She frolics with the fairies as they crown her queen. I will be listed on Ebay today.

Mini Prints ^_^

I've decided to do MINI prints to see how they do. They are on 4"x6" glossy photo paper. I think I would rather do matte, but it's hard to find...maybe if I do bigger prints. They are a cute size for inexpensive collectables. I listed a few on Ebay earlier today. I am thinking about getting an Etsy shop, but I'm not sure what would work better.

Lot's to think about and do. Need to get some paintings done soon! ^_^

A Recently Commissioned Piece...and Maybe Prints?

This piece is for a lovely lady that I have done several paintings for. She calls herself the "Siamese Lady". I am working on another one for her currently.

On another thought...I am thinking about selling prints of my paintings. I'm not sure...if they will be mini prints or regular size prints.....whether they should be matte or semi-gloss......and whether to sell them on Etsy or Ebay. Just gotta figure out what would be best.

Have a wonderful day!

Photos from Basic Training Graduation Ceremony

It's been so long since I've painted or written on my blog. I've been so busy with the end of the school year. So many projects to get done, with little time for anything else.
But now I am officially finished with school for the summer! ^_^

On top of the school year ending...I got to visit my boyfriend twice since he's been in training. In March I got to go to Lackland Airforce Base in San Antonio, TX to see his Basic Training graduation. It was really neat to see and I am so proud of him. He was an Honor grad which is the top 10% of around 800 (this is based on the score on the physical and written test), and there is a Top Honor grad overall and he was in the number 2 spot. ^_^ I'm glad I got to see it. It was very nice of his parents to take me along. Then, just this past weekend I went with his family to visit him at Tech school at Keesler AFB in Biloxi, MS. I had a great time! It was so nice to see him again. I miss him so much...but glad that he can talk on the phone now that he is out of Basic training.

Time to start getting back to painting...
And to start off my summer vacation,
I am having sale of some old paintings I have sitting around my house. Gotta clear out my stash and start new. I will start them at $2.99 so drop by to see if there is anything you like. They will be listed on Ebay today! So check out the **SALE!**

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
