New Artwork.


I've been working some art pieces to hang in my studio. I'm going to make 5 in total. Here is the first one I completed. I haven't come up with a title for it yet. If any one has any ideas please let me know! I've also been working on getting a blog shop put together. It's finished and loaded but I haven't quite figured out how to imbed the paypal button in each post. As soon as I do I will put some of my other artwork over there. There is still one of my small pieces that I first did available at Artfire here. As always, I cherish your feedback! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Karen, that is a gorgeous work of art! Looking at it reminds me of days gone by and for some reason my sisters.... not sure why? Maybe a good name could be," Sonnet of Sisters".
Have fun hearing everyone's suggestion and I look forward to seeing the other ones you create.
I am trying to organize my web store too, there is sure a lot of work isn't there?
I am so excited for you!!
Hugs,

Cute, Cute......

log in to your pay pal and click on the~
Merchant services button....

then choose the "BUY it Now" button....

It will ask for your info...like name of item,price,shipping cost,etc.

Copy and paste the button(info)...

go back to your blog and paste the code under your item.

On your blog it will appear as a "Buy it now" button but it will take buyers directly to pay pal to check out.

You might have already figured it out by now, but if not...hope it helps.

Can't wait to see what you are selling and your other artwork for your office :)

This piece is sooooooooooo pretty. Love the 3 girls but, the bird just kind of adds another dimension to it. And the flowers on top are great! How large is the finished piece? A set of 5 will be a real statement for your studio. I wish I could re-do my studio. It is in my laundry room & has a garden theme right now. Have had the same wall paper & colors in there since we moved in (10 years). Feeling the need for change. Worst part... can't change the fact it is in the laundry room. Gives me room for challenge & growth. RIGHT? :)

Karen, when I left that first comment, I had something else in my head for your art work...but as I wrote my comment I went blank and left that...and as I am me...later as I was washing dishes it hit me what your art work made me think of lol "The princess within..." There whew now my mind can rest and get back to my regular tasks at hand :) Goodness getting old is hard lol maybe I should start carrying a lil notebook around with me to write things down so I don't forget :) Rose

Jeannette said...

Morning Karen! Oh this picture reminds me of when I was little and my girlfriends and I would pretend we were grown up and dress up in our mothers silky nightgowns and wear their pearls, etc.! So the first thing that came to mind was "Let's Pretend"! of course simply "Sisters 1" came to mind and then you could name the others in sequence: 2, 3, ...! That's my 2cents worth! Just GORGEOUS as always!!! Sincerely, Jeannette

Lora said...

I love it. The flowers on top of the frame are my favorite. I'm really starting to like mixed media art a lot. Goodluck~

Lynn said...

I am loving this very much Karen, love vintage girls of course, but that frame is perfect too :)
I am terrible at naming things so I don't usually bother, sorry I can't help you with that one :)
As for your web store, go to html in blogger and paste the code in there wherever you want it :) You probably figured it out by now LOL

Karen, I was so anxious to make a comment I forgot to look at your new piece. I'll go back and look.

I am so inspired by you. I am trying to get etsy up. I need to start selling something to support my happit I'm getting into of making and giving prizes to everyone. I would love to hang with you and absorb some of your energy. It reminds me of me 10 years ago, before my accident. I've heald alot and have found my way. There's see alot for me to see and feel and do, I just can't do it as fast as I would like.

Oh, I am having so much fun working on my sewing room. I want to be ready for your party next year. Has anything happened more towards it?
