"Little Pineapple Princess"


Today has been the typical work-at-home-Mum (WAHM) pick ups, cooking, and in between working at my desk, making and packaging art prints, taking them to the post office etc. 

Now that that's out of the way I've had time to scan in and list a new mini painting. This one is called "Little Pineapple Princess":

I've popped her up for auction starting at $1, so everyone is in with a chance.

The other little painting I have up for auction at the moment is "Purple Vampire Fairy". As I write this the auction is up to $7.50 with just under 3 days to go, so you might be in luck to grab a bargain original painting!

 That's all for my eBay auctions, however if you pop over to my website, I still have FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING on everything, so if you're interested in an original painting (other than the ones for auction) you will be better off buying it direct from me and saving on shipping. 

That's all of my art news for today. I'm off to bath the kids!

"Blessed Mermaid"

Hello Monday!

Our weekend was mostly filled up with catching up with friends and family. The weather is still HOT here in Brisbane Australia, so I would've been happy to sit at home in the air con all day, but I'm glad we got out and about. :) We went to Wynnum yesterday for lunch and the kids loved playing on the whale park.

On Saturday morning I finished and listed a new original painting "Blessed Mermaid" up for auction in my eBay store, starting at $1.

 It's 15cm x 30cm on stretched canvas, so it can hang on the wall or sit on it's own on a desk or side table.

It looks like the week ahead will be filled with lots of painting with a couple of commission requests coming in this weekend. It's fun to do custom paintings now and then. When I'm painting I can have a million ideas running through my head, and I never really know where the piece is going to end up. Sometimes I can start painting a mermaid and it turns into a fairy. But with a custom piece, I am working with someone else to bring their ideas and dreams into being. It's really a team effort!

Even if you don't want to commission a painting for yourself, I would love to hear any ideas you might have for paintings. Feel free to message me anytime on Instagram or my Facebook page.

Here's to a great week!

"She Happened Upon a Frog"


Right now while Baby A is having a nap I'm busy getting some art print orders ready. (Remember - everything has FREE worldwide shipping at at the moment, including original paintings). Although I don't mind packing orders, I really would rather be painting.

At the moment I'm working on a "Little Red Riding Hood" themed piece. I've only just started by blocking some colour into the background and working out where I want things in the painting.

and when I'm taking breaks from that, I've been working on some smaller "mini paintings" that I've been putting up for auction in my eBay store. At the moment I have one called "She Happened Upon a Frog" up for auction starting at $1 HERE.

Thank you for the wonderful feedback on my "To Do List"! :) I'm so glad you have found it useful. Some days I print it out '2 to a page' - so you get 2 days out of one A4 piece of paper, and there's still plenty of room. If you haven't got it yet, you can print it out for free HERE.

That head cold that was hanging around last week seems to be almost gone now. Phew! Time to get some orders ready while I've got a quiet house...

Hope you're having a great week!
