2 new paintings and an artists spotlight!

I have two new paintings to show you today, I couldn't blog yesterday so you get a two for one deal today! 

The painting to the left is Harriet the Ballerina, and she is done on 12x12 canvas.  Of special interest to those who like sparkle, are her little toe shoes, hair bow, and tutu.  They are painted and embellished with pink glitter.  :) 

My next painting is Frida the Fish.  After naming her, I realized too late, that many people, especially artists may think that I painted a Fish to look like Frida the artist, but that isn't so of course, it's just the first girls F name that came to mind, and I couldn't get it out of my head.

This little fish came as a surprise to me, as I was actually making a background for my pig painting, but as I was adding more and more blues and greens, I realized it looked like water.  Well I just had to make a fish after that, and here she is. 

Both of these ladies can be found dancing and swimming around my Etsy shop, so be sure to head over if you are interested in giving them a new home.  :)

In other news, after spending all day Sunday and Monday  organizing and doing business related things, I did manage to paint a bit both of those nights.  I'm hoping tonight will be the same.  It seems I'm forming a bit of a habit now, and that is to do business/computer stuff in the day and paint late afternoon and night.  It's working out so far, and I'm trying to stop feeling guilty for spending my days on the computer.  It's just something that needs to be done apparently when you are trying to run a business and market yourself.

I think my name is slowly making it's away into the cyber world and a few of my pieces have been featured in treasuries this week, and also a couple blog posts.  In one case I was in the artists spotlight, which was really fun!  You can find that post over at Renee Mak's blog Fuss it Up Designs  she is a fellow Etsian and you can find her at her  Etsy shop Fuss it Up! . She has some really great jewelery and mixed media art to look at.  Definitely stop by and say hello. 

Okay that's all for today, must get back to work!  Have a great day!
