Art du Jour

Playing again! Here's what's on my worktable today... (still working on the
kitty with hyacinths ~ right) ~

For everyone who has asked, I didn't go along with PhotoBucket's new $400
per year price increase, and I know that it rendered many ~ most ~ of my older
posts pretty useless as far as visuals. 

I hope to do some new Fairy Houses this spring, and I will post photos as I go!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!

New Little Paintings! (*Really* Little!)

Little paintings (ACEOs, just 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" ~ 6.35 x 8.89 cm ~ "baseball-card-sized")
on my worktable this week!

I'm offering these on eBay ~ Check out my "Me" page ~ :)*moon

Suggestions Welcome!

Well folks, even though I have not been the most prolific poster lately,

I still enjoyed "A Little Fur in the Paint".

However, my photo "hosting" service, Photobucket, has decided that it must charge

 almost $40 per month to restore my photos and to 

continue "hosting", and that's kind of ridiculous.

And maybe Google/Blogspot isn't the best blog platform anymore, either.

So, I am open to suggestions ~ do you still blog? Read them?

Have a favorite (for the not-so-tech-savvy) platform?

Prefer just Instagram?

What are your thoughts?

(And thank you bunches to all the people who still check in on me!)

Please leave me a comment...

Thank you!

A Little Tree-Frog Visitor and Instagram... :)

I would love it if you visited me on Instagram! I have been "playing" there quite a bit, and trying to coordinate everything with my Etsy shop, which I am getting ready to update.

 My Instagram username is anne_octobermoon ~ :)

 This little fellow was watching me water my plants on the patio last night... I think he was looking for his complimentary color to perch upon!

The Every Day or Two (or Three) Challenge

Yes, that's what this challenge should be for me! 

 I'm still having fun, though, and Leo is a willing subject.

 'Leo', watercolor on 300# Fabriano paper, 6"x 6"

 (I also do pet portraits; this size is $65. Message me if you are interested! 

Make sure to include your contact information.)

"Cherry on Top", Part Two...

Well, I can already tell that my life is going to 'get in the way' of this challenge! 

 Second day, *right out of the gate*, I didn't do a painting... 

 (I packaged and FedEx-ed other artwork, though, so that was something!) 

 Back on track, now, with "Cherry on Top 2", in my old familiar medium, watercolor.

 Thank you for your encouragement!

Have a safe and happy Labor Day!

"30 in 30" Challenge

Switching gears here a little (and it may make me a better blogger) ~

 Participating in this fun challenge, hosted by Leslie Saeta.

 The goal is "thirty paintings in thirty days"; every day for the month of September.

Of course, daily posting may not happen (although I rarely miss a day of painting now,

 I am usually so picky that I don't finish a project right away), but we will see...

 Here goes! 

 My first painting is acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas, titled "Cherry on Top" ~ 6" x 6"

 To see Leslie's blog and the rest of the "30 in 30" participants, click here!
