Did this one today and used the round camel in oils (painter). The background is sponge painted and the flower was done with the artist brush (van gogh).

What a gorgeous portrait!!

I think you captured the innocence and such a calm feel here. Winderful color, and the flowers really add to this!!

This one I would frame :clap:

Yup,I agree..
This one is a classic

every piece i see of yours is my favorite.

you should really gather all of these together and approach a greeting card company, or something. these would make outstanding cards, especially as a collection. each individual one is strong, but when you consider the volume of your work...they become very powerful. i'm serious!!!

Thank you Micheal, Jorge, Manda, and Jean:) Nice comments always make my day!

Manda, (and I know it's really Amanda, lol!) I have always wondered about the greeting card thing, but I have heard chatter that they do not compensate that well, and can be a bit demanding. Have you heard anything like that?

I would like very much to offer a few pieces for sale from my site, perhaps next year sometime. (I'm in the middle of moving, not fun) But thought I would just pick and choose a select few to sell. Funny how some of these paintings get so near and dear.

i don't know...i've never tried to sell anything to a greeting card company. you could always self-publish, you know. approach local gift shops about stocking them. print a collection of blank cards or something, package them together. i'm positive they'd sell.

That's a beautiful piece of work. I agree with the others, it is greeting card material (and I don't mean that in a derogatory way). It has a very watercoloury feel about it.

This is stunning! Note cards would be perfect, or framed and matted 5x7s.
I'm a newbie, have Painter Classic, and that Van Gogh brush is a mystery to me- obviously not to you :) .
