Expanding Online Presence

I’m expanding my online presence! In addition to my Etsy store and blog I now have a Shopify store.
One great thing I did learn is that artwork sells faster when staged properly. Light source matters and so do graphic design skills 😉

Cheers to my new online store!

Seashell Study

This was a surprisingly good outcome of an experiment. I’ve never made a painting without looking closely at each and every detail. I begun with a small seashell in my hand and then this happened. Sometimes we wear our emotions on canvas 😉

Jelly Fish Painting on Wood Panel

I built my first wood panel made of sturdiest birch. It’s so well put together that it can survive a drop, kick and whatever abuse you can do this painting.

This jelly fish painting is slightly different to my first one. It’s definitely larger in scale and the paint is an iridescent green. It glows no matter how the light hits it. Even in a dim room this piece glows. I’m amazed by the transparency and flexibility this paint allows. Pretty hooked on this iridescent green.

Acrylic Conch Painting

I absolutely love this Acrylic Conch Painting. We picked it up on a diving trip to Cat Cay Bahamas. I didn’t bleach the conch since I wanted to preserve it’s natural beauty. Honestly I’m not even sure why most people bleach sea shells. The bleach eats away the natural color of the shell and leaves it plain dull white.

This acrylic conch painting measures 30″ x 40″. The original sold already but prints of this painting are still available. Below are the pictures of progress and final piece.

Prints

I told myself I would never create prints from my artwork. Well I was so wrong because prints are an amazing solution for those artists that don’t have much time to paint. To be honest parting with my favorite paintings is an emotional ordeal for me. After spending a few months on each piece it’s tough to just put a price on it and sell it. So finally I gave into making prints. I’m beyond happy with the quality and results of the printer. Below are some of my prints already framed that I’m willing to sell 😉
