|Morning Stillness, 8x10, oil|
Available in my Ebay Store.
My daughter-in-law’s home decor shop, Patchwork Plus Maine on Rt. 3 in Searsmont, Maine, is gearing up for the holiday season and she asked if I would paint some small seasonal paintings for the shop. She carries a line of my work but these would be specific to the season.
It’s been a fun change to paint snow scenes and children playing. These little paintings are no larger than 4x5, some are smaller. Happily, they are popular and I’m enjoying the challenge. Because they are oils, they still need to be done in layers, then dried and varnished. The standard painting process only in miniature. In between the little paintings I’m finishing up some larger ones. I have a stack of half finished work that needs attention.
Picking up on her energy, I decided to join in with the Black Friday and Small Business Saturday sales events in my Ebay Store. I’ve never done a sale before and this should be interesting. Ebay makes it really simple to add these events to your listings and I choose which items will be part of the sale. It was nice to check my email this morning and see all the sales. Pretty nifty! I’m still thinking about Cyber Monday…..
Our Virtual Paint-Out Group has been on vacation since October and I’m looking forward to the start-up in January. Artist Leslie Saeta starts another 30/30 challenge in January. Looks like that’s going to be a very busy month!
I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving and that all is well.
Thanks for visiting,
