40% Off Etsy Sale!

Flowerburst – Acrylic on Canvas Board – 10×12 inches

Hello everyone, I am having another Etsy Sale!  This time I am offering a whopping 40% off with a minimum spend of £50!  Most of my paintings are not much bigger than the one above, so this is a good time to order a couple or a few, as we know that unless you are going BIG, smaller paintings and prints look better in a group, as below.

The reason behind this massive sale is that many items will expire on the 2nd of April and I will not be relisting most of them as I am working on new projects.  At the beginning of the year, I reduced the prices of many of my paintings and kept the prices of the prints reasonably low.

I am running out of space on my walls!  Everything you see on my wall below is listed on my Etsy site and will be shipped with the mat (NOT framed).


Here are a couple of ideas for groups:


Remember, these are all originals and when they are gone, they are gone!  I made my first Etsy Sale this week!  One of my little paintings went to live in the USA!  I hope it gets there quickly and in one piece!

In the meantime, you can visit my shop by clicking here or on the link in the sidebar.  I would be really grateful if you would share with your friends if you think they would be interested.  Thank you for stopping by!


I Had an Ah-Ha Moment!

I have been reading Julie Prichard’s blog.  I really like her work.  So much that I bought the book she wrote with Chris Cozen. (Read her blog, you will find out what the book is.) As I have been reading blog’s at work, I have to watch the videos with the sound off.  But I will most likely do an on-line course with her once I see how I get on with the course I will be starting next week.

I went back to almost when she started writing her blog and discovered that she hadn’t been painting that much longer than me, and that she doesn’t like drawing (like me).  It was the ‘she doesn’t like drawing’ bit that got to me.  I really don’t like it.  I don’t doodle.  I bought a book on how to get out my inner doodle.  One of the things I like about making prints is that I don’t have to draw.  What I love about abstract art and mixed media is that you really don’t have to draw, or even draw well.  I no longer have to beat myself up over the fact that I am not motivated to draw.

If I have any kind of artist envy, it is envy for those that have a dedicated art studio and that can paint full time.  I aspire to having a room (not the dining room) that is totally mine and where I didn’t have to work for other people the way I do now.  That is my intention that I am sending out to the Universe, amen.

It looks like I may be at this contract until the middle of April now (I told them I was good until the middle of May) and so my painting will be limited to weekends unless I have some good light when I get home from work.  And then I will have to fit in this on-line art class!  Yikes!

So, in the meantime, why don’t you have a look at my Etsy 10% off Mother’s Day Sale and buy your mom one of these lovely paintings ready to pop into a frame:

These are all original works of art, made by me!  Thanks for stopping by!


10% off Everything Etsy for Mother’s Day!

In the UK, Mother’s Day is on the 11th of March.  I have listed everything with an additional 10% off for Mother’s Day.  The sale ends on the 10th.  At the start of the year I had reduced the prices for everything so an additional 10% off is a real bargain.  Unfortunately, I cannot reduce the shipping charges as I send everything by tracked, insured and signed for post.   I don’t charge shipping for additional items.

Here is a random sample of some of my recent items for sale.  Click here to see my Etsy Shop.  There is bound to be something for everyone!  I have collages, monotypes, collagraphs, paintings, botanical art, seascapes, abstracts, still lifes, etc.  All original art, made by me!

Thanks for stopping by!
