printing, matting, personalizing, framing....



that's one of the things that kept me busy last week. 

pulled the pirate painting, "ahoy mate", out of the archives for this one...circa. 2012 to be exact. and the one on the left, "pocket protector" was done around last year (2015) at this time. both are available as prints....just click on the name of the painting to take you to my etsy shop where you can purchase them.

{always love seeing my own evolution in my work....}

"sweet serenity"....

"sweet serenity"
9x12 acrylic on canvas

the name of this little beauty.

inspired by pantone's "GORGOIS" (as my FAVORITE make up artist, Mally Roncal would say-please, that's a whole different blog post....LOVE that woman...i digress!) palette of 2016, featuring the colors, rose quartz and serenity (hence her name)...and my favorite, lilac grey (ironic, considering i am not a big lover of anything purple).

i'm kind of loving little miss serenity right now and i will be featuring her on some great products in my Society 6 shop a little later in the week. until then....

PRINTS are available in my etsy shop and...the ORIGINAL PAINTING IS FOR SALE. contact me here or message me here if interested.

{below are some parts of the painting...}

FINALLY....

got around to opening up a Society 6 shop over the weekend in an effort to consolidate my POD (print on demand) options. 

www.society6.com/theenchantedeasel
how about having your morning cup of coffee in one of these....(bigger mug means more COFFEE)! coffee never looked so good! ;)

{tons of other cool products over at S6 and i'm really loving the whole artist community over there. kind of has en etsy type feel to it...a friendly, welcoming, close knit kind of vibe. perfect for the little introvert artist here.}

more designs coming soon! :)

a bit of a challenge....

this last commission was for me. i don't usually paint in silhouette nor do i pant graphically (for a lack of a better word). however, when the client gives you carte blanche, well life is a whole lot easier. :)

below are the reference photos i was given, my sketch and the finished painting is above.

{i think i did ok....never met a challenge i didn't like. ;)}
