New Stuff to Be Listed Soon

New pendants...finally! I've spent the last couple days and managed to wrap up more than a few pendants. Not sure how many I'll end up doing. I'm planning on a show later in August and thought I should add to my inventory.

In this photo I have spectrolite/labradorite, agate, blue chalcedony with apatite, Oregon's Owyee Jasper, and Peruvian Pink Opal. I hope to get at least these listed tomorrow.

Metallic Prints

I just got back some prints I had done in metallic photo paper. These prints are truly amazing but you will have to take my word for it since the coolness will not show up on a computer monitor. Think about the pearly inside of a white plastic candy wrapper or the nacre on a pearl. It has that kind of a luster. The photo paper is glossy too. It really pops with the greens, yellows and blues.

Here are my current metallic print listings:

Emma's Garden

Sunday my daughter Emma will be 2! My latest painting, an 11x14", I've named after her. These are some of the colors in her room and I'm now really toying with the idea of doing a bug theme rather than a french-chic. After painting her walls I felt the color purple came out too bright for my initial plan...

Anyway, I've listed my latest painting in my shop. It is listed at $65. It took me 6 hours straight to complete this and the photo doesn't do it justice. Unfortunately my scanner is not large enough to capture a better image of it so I had to rely on my camera which tends to wash out the color. I plan to have this scanned elsewhere so I can retain an image for Emma should I go the bug direction.

I currently have 2 smaller paintings called "Into Summer", parts 1 and 2 in my shop for $10 each. They were the initial paintings that sparked my desire to create something on a bigger scale.

Prints: Their Debut

I just got done stocking my shop up with tons of prints! Some of the prints I'm now selling were never sold as originals in my store. I've gone with the more affordable-for-all option of using the photographic paper for prints rather than the pricier giclees. My prints are on Kodak Professional Endura paper. The Endura paper is made to last up to 200 years if kept in a dark space out of sunlight, and up to 100+ years with typical display! The colors are bright and overall, I'm happy with them. My scanner doesn't tend to grasp the crisp lines and often exagerates color but this can all be seen in most of the first photo images of each painting in my shop. I don't mind this as it makes images more vivid.
Pricing is as follows:
3.5x5" is $ 3.75
5x7" is $ 6.00
8x10" is $10.00
