New work and interview

Just for fun, one of two bird paintings I did recently.

If anyone out there has not heard of Etsy, you need to get yourself over to and check out some hand made stuff. Etsy is a community of people with individual stores selling hand made items such as jewelry, prints, art, clothing, knitted items, and so on. TONS of really cool stuff!

My store is the Woody Mart. I'm selling prints, original paintings, magnets, and cards. Recently I was interviewed by the talented Melanie about my art and my Etsy store. You can read the interview here at her blog. Here is my little Etsy "Woody Mart" ad.

Also, here is a new painting for last weeks painting-a-week (I know I haven't posted every weeks paintings, but I'm still on track!). It's a sort of "pre" idea painting for a picture book I'm working on about the moon. Enjoy!

Tiger painting

New for this week, it's the tiger! This would make a nice blanket. It is painted with acrylic and caran d'ache over a moroccan pattern. It was actually painted to fit into a mat that I created to look like old stone with a sort of Thai pattern opening. Sounds confusing, I know, but I'll take a picture of it all, if/when I get it framed.

I am happy to report that I have kept on task with the painting a week, 6 weeks in. So I should have plenty of original art to sell at the summer art fairs and such. Also, don't forget to check out my Etsy store, the WoodyMart to see the new paintings for sale as well as prints and cards.
