Autumn Fairy. Finished

Finished at last. Now I have to decide when to list her.
She's "Autumn Fairy". An OSWOA of course. See her pails of paint. She is painting all the leaves their fall colours. I'm thinking that maybe I'll do a winter fairy now.

Autumn Fairy (still in progress)



A few hours later........ Still working on her. Although I have to admit, now I'm getting tired of the leaves. (short attention span) I do kind of like these prismacolor pencils. They are a nice change from painting.

Autumn Fairy (Fall Fairy) A work in progress

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 :)

Squidoo Lens?????

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.

Anniversary and Birthday on same day.

Isn't it amazing that the anniversary of the OSWOA art movement and my sister Sharons's birthday are on the same day. :) I'll never forget either now. Happy Birthday Sharon!!!!!

Happy Anniversary OSWOA (original small works of art)

OSWOA 1st Anniversay.



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:

"First Light"

How can you tell the weather has turned colder and I'm already thinking of winter LOL

And: First Snowfall.

Pirates of the Caribbean


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.

Big Brother 8

Ok, I know, I know. This is an art blog, but I just have to say.. Evil Dick winning all that cash???????Give me a break! Although considering the alternative.........ok, maybe it was right.

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.

Harvest Moon



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.

some ideas

I have a couple of things I want to paint this week. I'm not sure I'm going to get to them. I'd like to paint another hibiscus. Maybe a red one. And I really wanted to do something with the harvest moon.

This one is just about over.


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.
