Thank YOU!

I just wanted to thank you all for your support during my end of the year sales events!! It sounds like many customers are happy about the deals they found on ebay and etsy! I'm so glad you chose one of my paintings to give as a gift (or keep for yourself). I really don't make any money offering paintings at $1. My humble little dollar sale gets eaten up with fees from ebay/etsy and paypal, but I enjoy it and it's better than having the paintings sitting around my home...although it's sometimes hard to see them go.

I have had one of my best years yet in painting sales. What I find most exciting about it is seeing my paintings go out into the went as far as Australia this year! Yeah!

2014 is just around the corner and I'm revamping the blog to reflect the changes that are happening in the studio.

I am working on things behind the scenes at the moment. I've been doing a lot of drawing and observing and I hope you'll enjoy what I have to offer next year!

XO - Heather

Cyber TUESDAY Sale on Ebay

"Pink Umbrella for Your Drink"
Click here to bid on this painting and others.

Black Friday on Ebay went really well. At least half of my paintings sold (yeah!)...many of them sold for 1 $ (yeah for you!). So, I decided to list the remaining paintings and a few more I found lurking around the house. These make really great gift for friends, family, work, stocking stuffers, etc. and they are all original art. You can't beat that!

This will be my last $1 sale on Ebay for the year.

In 2014 I am moving out of the "hobby" stage of painting and into the "professional" stage of painting. I won't be offering my paintings at rock bottom prices any more. I have been doing this for going on 5 years and I think it's time for me to start offering them at the normal asking price.

Thank you all for your support!

Black Friday on Ebay

"Kiwi Trio"
8"x8", acrylic on canvas board
Click here to bid.
Incidentally...I totally spelled Kiwi wrong on the listing....I don't know how that happened, but I can't change it. :)

First Thanksgiving down...2 more to go!

I feel very grateful that we still get together with my Dad's side and celebrate Thanksgiving. It's always fun to see my aunts and uncles, cousins, and second-cousins!

At this time of year I like to list many of my older paintings on ebay in hopes that they will find a new home over the holidays. The painting above is one of the many paintings that start at a 1 $ bid on ebay. These make unusual stocking stuffers or possibly gifts for friends and family.

Read this book!

I highly recommend the book STEAL LIKE AN ARTIST by Austin Kleon. It's so simple. You can read it in an hour or maybe two and it's just full of advice. Great stuff like...nothing is original...start copying...fake it 'til you make it...and much, much more. It has given me a lot to think about. I think you'll enjoy it to.

I was going to try to take notes and started copying every other sentence, so I'm just going to buy a copy for myself. That way I can reference it all the time! It's that good! You will want to reference it all the time!

Or maybe I'll buy two and cover the walls of my studio with the pages of this book.
