I couldn't resist :D 2 small (6x4) watercolours, just using up a scrap of paper. I'm thinking that I'll list them for 5 days and that way they can be mailed in plenty of time. They also fit in standard size frames/mounts :D Starting price maybe $15?

Is anyone else going to do some valentine listings?

I might believe that I'm onto a sure winner here from comments, but I know how dodgy ebay is lately lol Still, very little time and materials went into these, so I won't be too worried if they don't sell for big money! ;) Thanks :)

I might spend more time doing small/miniature art, I know I can paint small, and watercolours sell well in sizes that are cheap to frame.

Te, you could do some more roses (you know how men think roses are the best thing to show their love!) :D

These are really nice, Ruth. Good luck with them.

Thanks, Suzette. :)

I've listed them tonight, 5 day auctions, starting at $15.

From watching art on ebay, it seems that very large OR very small paintings sell well. In between sales are slower, unless you have a name or paint nudes!

Nice! I'm working on hearts too (quick and easy!) but in acrylics on canvas. I'm not really happy with it, and now I wish I'd made them intertwined. I think I'll do something else before I post it, to link the hearts in someway.

Acrylic is taking longer then usual to dry here, it's so humid! Over 1/2 hour between thin coats! Bah.

Hair dryer? Plain light bulbs?

Dehumidifier?

This is quite funny, but would you believe I have none of the above?!

We have fluescent lights only in the house (even in my reading lamp)
I don't have a hair dryer (I appreciate my hair too much!)
and I don't even know what a dehumidifier is!

:)

But I have time I guess. We are thinking of going to the movies it's so hot and sticky. Air conditioning sounds too good!

I found my acrylics drying too fast. Darn Air-con. lol

Nice paintings Ruth - I love your style! Here's my contribution to St. V. Painted on a little (1 1/4 x 1 3/4) scrap of wood. The rug ran off the edges so I painted the fringe hanging down on the sides.
