Christmas 2014 Pet Portraits

Eek! Christmas is almost here!

If you would like to get a custom pet portrait done for the holidays the deadline is November 30th. All paintings will be shipped by December 5th to guarantee delivery for Christmas.

Here are some I’ve done in the past…

 

Obviously, I do mostly dogs because they’re man’s best friend.  But if you’re best friend happens to be an iguana, no problem, I can paint  him too.

Selling on Houzz.com

Being an interior design enthusiast I’ve always loved Houzz.com so when several people mentioned that I should start selling my art through them, well, I guess I had to listen.  It’s a slow process…I have to physically upload all of the art I have for sale to their product listings.  AND since it’s different than Etsy (which I can do with my eyes closed now), it is taking me some time to get everything uploaded.   But anyway, it’ll all get done…eventually…

Has anyone noticed that I really like mint and purple lately?

6×6 Paintings – Lafayette Art Association Fundraiser

The 2nd annual FUNdraiser for the Lafayette Art Association is coming up in September.  I didn’t get to make it to the actual event last year because the baby was literally just days old, but I am so excited to go this year.  It’s a great way to collect works from renowned artists in the area.  Buy a ticket, take home a painting!  I believe they go on sale at the end of August.

So last year I did 5 6×6 paintings which was really a challenge since I really don’t like to paint on small canvases.  This year I did 4 and for some reason it was much easier…maybe it was just my mood.   I think they came out pretty good.

Paintings from the last few months…

So in the beginning, it was easy to paint with the baby…now…not so much.  She’s crawling, she’s walking around furniture, she’s into everything.  AND we’re renovating a house.  Needless to say, I don’t have much time to do anything except the essentials.  I do have a few extra minutes this morning so here is what I’ve been up to lately…
