Art Every Day Month - Day 4

I managed to make a tiny little painting today:


These miniature canvases are 10x10cm (4"x4"), and I always like to make a whole series of them. They have almost sold out in the gallery, and I'm now experimenting with canvasboard, so that I can sell them in my Etsyshop without having to charge ridiculous shippingcosts. They are mixed media, the text is supposed to be shining through the paint, but alas, not this time. Too many layers of paint on there before I was (more or less) satisfied ....

Linking again to AEDM. I must admit this daily posting takes some getting used to ... ;-)

Thanks so much for visiting. I try to visit as many links as possible, but already 243 (yes 243!!) people have signed up, so it's next to impossible to visit everyone, unless I want to spend all day in front of the computer and not make any art. Which is not exactly the purpose of this challenge ..... . I intend however to at least have a look once at all the participants.

I'll be back tomorrow :-)

  1. This is beautiful even if the text didn't show through as you had wanted. You do the most soulful human eyes ever! I know what you mean about ridiculous postage costs - even for paper goods it always ends up costing me more than the price I've set on Etsy. I also agree - the daily posting is a lot on top of creating every day too so, like you, I just can't make it round as many blogs as I'd like to.

  17. What do I like about this lovely lady? Her big eyes and luscious lips, and those marvellous chestnut curls. She deserves life to be kind to her.
