Oh, My, Oh, My!

“I’ve got to get back…to the house on Pooh corner by one. You’d be surprised, there’s so much to be done: Count all the bees in the hive; chase all the clouds from the sky...”- Kenny Loggins

That’s been life lately. So much to do, so much to enjoy. Oh, it’s been dappled by a crisis or two. But nothing that didn’t have that little bit of silver edging on the cloud. No destructive storms have swept us away.

In the huge world of internet art and marketing, the options have been overwhelming. There is Etsy, Artfire, Ebay, etc. There are smaller avenues such as Daily Painters that offer marketing exposure for artists, as well as other blogs that offer segments that feature fellow artists. I’ve only signed on for Etsy and Artfire-so far- but, being new to this medium, it takes a good amount of time to get things initially organized.


Honey Bunnies Summertime-Ahh...


Along the way, I’ve been working on some new items. There are new note cards designed and a new painting in progress. There’ll be another giveaway starting Monday, February 21st for a new, and we think, fun item that keeps with our goal of customizing art for you.



Honey Bunnies Autumn-Sharing

Please check out the buttons on our sidebar for the Etsy and Artfire Studios. I’m still ironing out some details, so bear with me. And, please let me know if you have any suggestions. A second, or third, or fourth, set of eyes is always a great source of information.

Despite having had much-too-much of the white, icy stuff this season, I’ve had this photo that my mother took for a few years. I’ve wanted to translate it into a painting all that time. This is a peek at the first steps of the process. It’s a water soluble oil painting on a 5x7 wrapped canvas.

A second set of note cards are ready to be sold, the beneficiary of a portion of the sales being the Humane Society of Livingston County. I’ve shown some of them throughout other posts, but am happy to officially present the 1st Honey Bunnies Collection. 

The Honey Bunnies Collection is a set of 4 blank note cards printed on 110 lb. matte white Avery notecard stock with matching envelopes. The price is $10.95 for all 4 plus shipping or $2.75 each plus shipping. The goal, again, is to raise monies for our local animal humane society. At this time, they only have foster home facilities, with which they do wonderful service. Their plan is to raise enough funds to build a medium-sized central facility so that they can help that many more animals. We hope to be able to help, in no matter how small a way, with this effort.

That being said, thanks for your continued visits and support! And, Christopher Robin is waiting for me, so I must be off! Ta-ta!

Honey Bunnies Winter- Almost Done!
 

Honey Bunnies Spring- Yayyy!
