I promised my next post would be about a painting. So this is the latest painting I have finished. I painted this one on acrylic paper. I am not sure about selling it for a couple of reasons. Instead I had it professionally scanned so I could make a print. Now I KNOW I need a good scanner. I love the way it turned out. I already have an Epson scanner picked out on Amazon, I just need to fork over the money. :/ It will save me a ton of time though. I have been taking pictures all this time and that is quite a process to get a good one. Anyway....I have also been messing around with a shop on Etsy. I am still working on it in my spare time so it is not finished by far, but I did put a print of this painting up there just to see how it works. You are welcome to check it out by clicking the picture. I am still working on my banner and considering I have no real software to make a banner, it turned out OK. I should get some cool software with the scanner I picked.
Next, I want to thank Micki of The Art Hermit and Cris of Mommy's Midwest Mountain for giving me the Renee Award. This is a very special award created for a very special person, Renee.

This Renee award was created by Bella and Ces in honour of their friend Renee.
In Bella's own words "this is a brand new award and I have the pleasure and honor of spreading the seed, watching it grow. I hope it finds it's way to those who are like Renee: the acorn, a small package becoming a tall and sturdy oak, giving more acorns, becoming a tall and sturdy oaks, giving more acorns...."



I also want to thank K from Heart Wing Sisters for giving me her "You Do Inspire Me"award. K is new to my blog list and I love her blog. Check it out.


You all made my week! Thank you so much! Please Check out all of these lovely blogs if you have not already.
Now, a little something for the senses. This was sent to me by my younger niece. I thought it was timely. It is amazing how disturbing this can be. Try to remember this is not a real bunny! It is only chocolate. ;)

I hear you about the photographing of paintings. I think they may be just about the most difficult thing to photograph in world... Your new painting is stunning, by the way. It may definately amongst if not my favourite of yours. I'd be tempted to keep it too. x
