• What I am working on right now

    I’ve pretty much made up my mind I am leaving Ebay. I have made up my mind I am only going to sell $10 and under paintings on Ebay.

    It was a great place to sell art and I have met some of the coolest people, but unless you spend a lot of money on different types of listings you aren’t favored in search results anymore, and the type of buyer  that just wants the lowest price that they are now attracting is just making it a place I can’t make a living anymore. Time to diversify.

    I had a woman recently write me and offer to take 2 paintings off my hands for the price of one.  Another one got her art and then her payment bounced and she is basically refusing to make it good. She got her art and she pointed out to me, I can paint more right??? It’s like poof, more paintings….it’s not like I am really out anything like you know, someone that owns a store with merchandise. I can make more. Ugh …. people….

    Okay enough kvetching. Here is what I am working on (poof! More art) today.
    None of these pieces I am sharing below are done.
    Starting from the left – 2 kitties “It Will Be Better” – needs more layers of paint.
    Next is “Artist’s Ideas” – I haven’t decided if I am doing this in watercolor or acrylic or oil yet.
    Then, close up of a goat girl – she’s part of a much larger piece this is an ACEO (2.5×3.5 inches)
    Next row – The Sneeze ACEO
    and Anger ACEO

  • Sunday August 11th

    Skinney and I are hoping it stays clear tonight and maybe we can see some meteors, I’ll post photos if we get any 🙂

    I’ve been painting today – here’s what went up on Ebay.
    I have been doing everything but re-doing the website of mine I need to be revamping – egads my writing site has cyber-cobwebs.

    But let’s face it – painting is more fun!

  • Haters Gonna Hate ACEO

    I knew someone once that hated anything that was outside her comfort zone. And let me tell you, this chick’s comfort zone was microscopic.
    She hated people with tattoos, said they were scummy and she wouldn’t sit by someone on a plane that had them. Yet, her husband had tats.
    Anyone and anything unique was suspect and hated on.
    She made me tired to be friends with, so I stopped.
    Imagine all the people you’d never have the pleasure of knowing if you just judged a book by its cover?

  • I’m One of You

    Originally I was thinking this ginger cat was going to trick this fish and eat him. Then I thought, maybe he’s trying to acclimate and be like a fish and understand the fish, so they can be friends.
    Yes, that’s it  – I am going with friends.
    No cat on fish violence here~ 😀

  • When I was 5, I pretended I was a tiger with a very long tail

    I was the youngest in my family.
    My oldest sister was 24 years old when I was born, and my other sister was 10 years old. Needless to say, no one was really interested in playing with me so I spent a lot of time with pets and on my own.
    One thing I vividly remember is LOVING to get a piece of yarn and be a tiger …. a tiger with a long tail.
    I could do that for hours…yeah I was a weird kid, it didn’t get any better when I got older. 😀

  • Boss Pear Runs the Fruit Bowl ACEO Card

    My partner Skinney bought a bag of pears.
    They weren’t too ripe so he put them in a bowl on the kitchen counter.
    I guess no one looked at the bowl for a few days.
    One pear had apparently gotten really ripe and then moldy and taken over the fruit bowl
    The fruit bowl wasn’t a pretty site when Boss Pear took over.

  • BBW Tea Time – Stress Free

    Here’s the story:
    This was a relaxing ACEO card.
    I wanted to make someone that wasn’t in front of a computer, shut off her cell phone, and no television.
    Not streaming Netflix or Amazon Prime movies.
    She’s just having tea and probably looking out of a window and enjoying the view.
    Stress free.
    I need to do that too.
