Saturday night painting has turned into Saturday afternoon drawing. I am supposed to be painting an autumn scene. I wanted to enter it in the EBSQ flower of the month show, but............it has turned into an autumn fairy. I thought I would post this as a work in progress. Whether I finish it or not remains to be seen :)

Whose advertising their art with a squidoo lens? Are they as easy to do as what some people have said? There is so many places on the internet at the moment that are supposed to be "a must do" that it's really hard to keep track. Anyway, your thoughts on this would be great.

Saturday September 28 marks the first anniversary of the OSWOA movement. OSWOA stands for original small works of art. They must be 6" x 4" and be original. Absolutely no copies. I think this movement may have been born from the art card movement. Many OSWOA artists will be taking part in an art launch Saturday night listing their art on EBAY. The theme is "First". e.g. first love, first Christmas, first puppy etc.
I will be listing:
How can you tell the weather has turned colder and I'm already thinking of winter LOL
And: First Snowfall.

I decided to re-list some of my older paintings. Sort of house-cleaning to make room for some new ones. This one I painted after the 3rd installment of the movie "Pirates of the Caribbean". Titled "Follow your Dreams" which has nothing to do with the movie, I just liked the title.

Working on a new website for myself. It's been a couple of days, and is harder than I thought it would be. www.freewebs.com/southshoreartist. I'd like to get a new one going so I can close my old website. Anyone else working on a new webiste?

I decided to get back into dollhouse artist offerings after a lenthy absence. I belong to the Custom Dolls, houses and Miniatures group. It's amazing what these people can make in miniature. This is my first offering that I've done. It's a 1 1/2" x 2" original painting. I may do some smaller later in the week.

Going home the other night, we saw a similar scene like this as we left the city. The moon was shining brightly on the wheat fields with the lights of Regina glowing in the distance. (my kind of scene :)) The only thing missing is the lights of the combines as they worked feverishly into the night to get the crops off.
6" x 4" OSWOA (acrylics) listed on Ebay.

I listed this one almost a week ago. The great thing about this painting is, I got to try out Nova's canvas board. It really is great for painting on. Lightning storms are probably over for this year. All the leaves have turned the colours of fall and with the wind we had the last couple of days, they will likely be gone in no time.
