"The Barrel Racer" Miniature Watercolor painting

Phew, but I've been busy!
I've done a whole lot of miniatures as offerings on ebay, and sold quite a few. I have been playing around with graphics, making miniature views and faux stained glass for dollhouses and roomboxes.
I have decided to pursue teaching as much as possible. In particular screen printing, as I have taught many things over the years, and get a lot of enjoyment out of it.
Therefore a new site has been born - - to deal just with teaching. I love that it has a calendar on it, as well as a mailing list for people interested in classes.
I've also taken a leap into listing my art on 'ArtByUs' after putting on ebay first. It stops me from coding an art shop on my site. So hope that it works. I have already made one sale from it.
Now... I stayed up all night. I'll let you be judge if it was worth it. I was suddenly inspired and had to do another miniature - one with a lot more care than some of my usual. This is the result. It's "Barrel Racer", a cowgirl at a rodeo. It's watercolour, a miniature sized just 1 3/4" x 2 3/8" (4.7 x 6 cm).
If it doesn't sell on ebay, I'll keep it, possibly even might enter it in a miniature exhibition.

Hope you like it.

"Seven Words for Sand" Book Cover Illustration/design

Finished a book cover last night, that also has to be in CDRom format.
I did a cover for the same author (Allan Serifino) just over a year ago.
I'll be putting it up on my website soon.


Miniature paintings.

Well, I've revamped my site. Except for the commercial images for sale. I turned my sales over to ArtByUs for convenience sake. I've added more links. There is a bit more to do, but not immediate.
I currently have miniatures up on ebay, and trying to keep them there. I sold quite a few last week, including the beach girls in previous post. I was sad to see that one go. I would have kept it, if it hadn't sold.
This watercolor landscape sold, and is headed for Seattle.

It is from the Dry Creek Wetlands - a wild bird reserve in Adelaide, South Australia.
Forgotten the size, but at largest is probably 2.5 inches.
I did this purple rose last night in acrylics, on canvas. Again from SA - a garden in Findon.

It's 2x2.5" and I've just put it on ebay (see link from my home page).
There's more, as well as more to come.
