I am having fun with making jewelry from my art. Under the glass dome pendants are tiny reproductions of my original art. The glass domes make them glow. I am very happy with how they look. I will only be selling them directly or through my Zibbet.com store. I won't be showing them at the Art-A-Fair. When I am at the Art-A-Fair, I am strictly a painter. You can find my Zibbet shop at http://www.zibbet.com/ElinorSethman I have them very reasonably priced at $11 each. That price includes a chain and a pretty box to store it in.
This was the March challenge in the Art Colony blog where I am a commentator. We were to do something different than we usually do. It was fun and a big stress releaser since I have been in the studio painting miniatures for some upcoming shows. Painting miniatures is really hard on my wrist and my eyes. I used light modeling paste over Arches 300# watercolor paper. I then wet the paper and applied the watercolors and let them run down the paper and into the grooves of the modeling paste. The colors that I used were ultramarine blue, cerulean, Winsor blue, Winsor green, and turquoise. The white that you see is the paper. I also used Impellist flourescent colors for the fish. There is some Prismacolor pencil in it too. Oh, on the bottom, I used a little bit of raw sienna. SOLD
I finished "Kaleido-doodle-do" and here it is. The picture isn't very good and the colors are wrong but you can see what I have done. It will go into my summer show in Laguna Beach, The Art-A-Fair Festival.
I did this snowscene in an art challenge at the Art Colony Blog. We had to paint something white. I thought of snow right away because I used to paint snowscenes alot. The painting is 6"x6" and I will put it in an 8x10 standard size acid free mat so it will be easy to frame. I used transparent watercolor and gouache. I am asking $85 for it plus $10 USPS Priority mail shipping. I take Pay Pal. If interested, please get ahold of me. Thank you and Happy New Year!
