Painting day.

I know that I haven't been here for a couple of days but I have a busy life. Today is cold and we are having a light rain so it is a perfect day to paint. I will be working on my Christmas exchange painting and no I am not going to post it. I am on call all week for jury duty. So far I haven't had to go in. Thursday is the last day that I have to call in. I bet that I will have to go in the next day.

This will be my next painting

The miniatures are all mailed off. Wish me luck. I will do one more miniature before I start on this orchid painting. My youngest daughter gave me this plant two years ago and it is finally blooming again and my but the flowers are beautiful. I just have to paint them. I found out that the flowers grow from the old stalks and last year I cut those stalks off....dummy me! I learned my lesson and now I have some gorgeous flowers. I will hopefully start the painting next week. It will be a standard size.

View Of The Lake...new miniature

I just found that the color and font can be changed on this blog...neat! This miniature painting is headed to the Cider Painters Of America Show. It is a mixed media and it measures 2.5"x2.5". I love doing landscapes and there will be another one soon to send along with this one. Landscapes are so relaxing and fulfilling to paint. I like to keep mine a little loose but with dainty branches. Hope you like it. It was painted completely from my imagination.

Been busy working on my new store

I am still here but have been building a new store at Zibbet .com. After reading what other merchants are experiencing on the new Bonanza site, I am so glad that they didn't get my store. Everybody is referring to Bonanza as Bozo. I don't know why but I really enjoy building a store. Since my store is a basic account, I only have a few things there. I am stcking with the least expensive things at first. You can view it at www.zibbet.com/ElinorSethman  The store that I had at 1000markets was alot larger and prettier but...oh well. I need to learn how to make a banner at Zibbet. I'll be painting on another miniature probably on Wednesday.
