Signed, sealed, delivered!

Finished up this commissioned piece this week as well as delivered the larger pieces. So good to be able to have time for myself again! The frame was something the customer had and she determined the theme and color. This piece is 30cm x 40 cm. Can't wait to see it on her wall!

As promised, I am showing you the large commissioned pieces. Hanging side by side they measure almost 10 feet long. I haven't gone in to see them hanging in their permanent location, but plan on doing that soon and will share the images when I take them. I am now constructing one a tad bigger for our kitchen wall. Love working big!

And, in trying to keep up with my goal of producing art to list every Sunday, I am sharing new pieces listed on etsy and ebay this evening.

see available work here!

another week

Another week - gone! Wow, time goes fast. My large commissions are finished and ready to be delivered tomorrow and I have also managed to keep up with my ebay listings. As promised, I listed 5 more small pieces this evening. Phew! I really feel like I accomplished something! Take a little peek for my newest pieces... (I will show you the commissioned pieces in a couple of days.

Our Sunday was a productive one including fresh baked rolls. I seldom bake and was reminded of how nice the house smells with things in the oven. I have also finished a commission (I will show you this later) and many small canvases. Decided that it would be much easier for me to list everything once a week and then have one mailing day instead of having to go to the post office almost everyday. Sunday will be the day to post and Tuesday will be the day it all goes out. I don't know why I didn't figure out to do this sooner. Anyway, here are some of the pieces up for sale this week.

One Day - 4" collage on canvas

Thank you for your kind comments regarding our home renovations. We are quite proud with our accomplishments and although we have a long way to go, we are enjoying the rooms that we have finished and especially enjoying the extra space. I will post more imagery later, but thought I would update with a little piece just finished and listed on ebay.

Also, been moving like the wind over my large pieces and although they are getting close, I am not quite sure I can say they are done. Here are a couple of detailed shots to get you curious...

house update

(entry way, front door to right, and my new fancy table)

Sorry to those of you who check this blog for art reasons, but I have promised family updated pictures of our home remodeling for many months and have finally taken the time to take some pictures. Of course, the house only stays tidy for about 90 seconds, but I was able to snap some pictures quickly before the gang came in for round two of snacks (hence the sink full of dishes :)).

Ok, to recap, here is kitchen before:

and after:

(Still working on the fan over the stove.)

(these cabinets are where the sink used to be, see BEFORE picture)

and from the opposite end BEFORE:

and after!

(Need to add baseboards around the glass cabinets as well as handles.)

And Noah's room. We took one big, long room and split it in half thus giving us two small rooms, Noahs room and Guest Room. Had to take photos at different angles as there wasn't a door to Noah's room when these pictures were taken.


And after:

Can see that this is hard to see from the before picture, but it is the best I can do being that his room is so small! Will send some more of guest room and other bits in my next post!
