Miniature Paintings

As you can see, I was a painting fiend today. I only stopped because my wrist started to ache, and I'm supposed to be letting it heal up.

1000 Paintings

Sometimes when I'm tired I forget my ideas of things I'd like to do. So today after going to an art festival I had the idea to paint 1000 5x7 paintings on canvas. Each one will be numbered and retail for about $50. I'm not sure if I want to do nudes, or landscapes or flowers or animals or a mixture of things.

Update: I am once again working on this idea. Only now I'm doing square foot paintings at the rate of one a day. I opened a new Etsy shop just for this project. I called it the Square Foot Art Gallery, because people can go there to see all the paintings, even if they don't play to buy anything just yet.

Yay I have a follower. Thanks evilcraftlab.
Etsy sellers have been really supportive of my blogs lately. I think everyone just about on Etsy has discovered the value of social networking on sites like blogger,, ning and Twitter. Everytime I'm in a chatroom within minutes someone will ask if anyone has a blog, and then the url trading begins. I blog every day and I use every day. Those are the two big ones for me.

Photo Challenge

I'm working on a photo challenge for Instead of a simple alphabetical list like taking a photo of A for Apple, I'd like it to be a bit more intellectual, like A for asymmetrical. So I need to come up with a list.

A: Asymmetrical
B: Bulbous
C: Convoluted
D: Diabolical
E: Ephemera
F: Frantic
G: Global
H: Homogeneous
I: Illusion
J: Jocular
K: Kinetic
L: Loquacious
M: Meandering
N: Nubile
O: Olfactory
P: Pretentious
Q: Quixotic
R: Rambling
S: Stairway
T: Trapezoid
U: Urgent
V: Void
W: Walkabout
X: X-ray
Y: Yucky
Z: Zealous

That looks like a pretty good list. Let's see what I can do with it.
