 Ropin'  4" x 6" acrylic on vintage newsprint

 Magpies - 6" x 4" acrylic on vintage newsprint

I am hooked on painting on vintage newsprint.  I am using only the newspapers I have that are "ripped" already.  Ever since I painted the magpies on 100+ year old journal paper back February I've been fascinated with old paper.  I am torn between 5 x 7 or the postcard size 4 x 6 so I've decided on the postcard's still small in nature (the size I like to paint) but can still be framed.

You will find these two listed on Ebay here

  I am trying something new.....I have a ton of old newspapers for the 30's....I also have some old magazines from the 50's and older.  They are not in good shape so I can't really sell them as is, so I decided to paint on them.  This one is form the March 1936 Edition of the Nor-West Farmer...This newspaper was out of Calgary Alberta so what would be better to depict life in Alberta than a cowboy!!!  Makes you think of the Calgary Stampede doesn't it.

This like most of my pieces is listed on Ebay here.  I am hoping to do more of these in the coming days.
Ok, here goes....I'm so confused with this new format...and I haven't been blogging much lately so haven't had a chance to play with it. 

Dragon Storm.  2.5" x 3.5" acrylic

I'm still loving dragons...I think it's from my obsession with the books A song of Ice and Fire....I love everthing about the books....I'm on the last one...Book 5,  A Dance with Dragons......hard reading, but worth it.  Anyway, I have been painting dragons....this one is listed on will find it here
