Sad, But Necessary

I will be closing down my Daily Paintworks gallery for the Summer.  There have been so few sales that it is no longer possible for me to carry the payment on this site.  My social security and tiny pension can only stretch so far.  So, after May 14th my site will no longer be viewable on  Daily Paintworks. I have fingers crossed that sales will pick up on other sites: Ebay,  Etsy and ArtPal and so then I can return.  Thanks to those who purchased from me during the past several years I have been on DPW.

Time to Spread out...

I've been on Daily Paintworks for years and probably will continue for awhile...but since there are mostly just lookers there and not buyers, I have to spread out or close up my DPW gallery.
An artist needs sales or they lose inspiration and cannot afford to keep painting. 

With that in mind I've opened a gallery at I can sell paintings and jewelry as well.  To those of you who like nice necklaces I have posted a bunch of my unicorn prints under glass.  The pendants are 1 inch and encased in nice silvertone cases with 24 inch ball chains.  Great for mother's day or just a treat for yourself.  I'll be adding square ones (also 1 inch pendants) soon and each comes with a 24 inch ball chain and in a little drawstring pouch.  .. Please look them up, you'll find pendants and some artwork and maybe some prints in the future too:

Grazing Thoroughbred

What does a child do when her dad works at Dixon Pencil Co?  She learns to do graphite drawings because dad brings home shiny yellow Ticonderoga Number 2 Soft pencils :-)  I haven't done one in awhile but ran across a box of these pencils...probably the last ones dad got before he passed away in 1993.  I treasure them and so, in his honor I drew "Grazing Thoroughbred" with a Ticonderoga Number 2 Soft pencil:

This graphite is 8 X 6 inches on Bristol Board Paper. 
Its up for sale in my gallery on Daily Paintworks.

The Tiny Red Mushroom House

My latest painting is one I'm quite proud of.  Its a spin off of my painting Mouse Picnic which sold a few years ago.  That one featured red mushrooms under which two mice were having a picnic.  This one features a tiny red mushroom mouse house.  The yellow bike from Mouse Picnic leans against this tiny mushroom house as though waiting for the next midnight picnic.  An enchanting piece that would do well in anyone's home, especially those who love whimsy.  This one is on Ebay but will be switched to Daily Paintworks if it doesn't sell there:

ACEO's Born on eBay Years Ago and Still Going Strong!

ACEO's (Artist Cards Editions & Originals) was born on eBay over 15 years ago.  Today thousands of the little paintings (3 1/2 X 2 1/2 inches) are listed and sold there every day.  I choose to go back to eBay for Halloween and Christmas ACEO's and they are being well received.

You can find my little painting on ebay at:
ms*patricia Seller Page

I also list some of these on Daily Paintworks so you can bid on them from there as well. 

ACEO's - a great way to see an artist's talent up close and not spend a whole lot of money.  Start a collection of ACEO's today.  Give them as holiday gifts.  Slip them into holiday cards.  I'm sure they will be well appreciated.

Global Warming is Killing Off the Little Pikas

I fell in love with this tiny animal.  About 7 or 8 inches long, looking like a very cute fat rat with no tail.  They live in colder climates which is why they have a thick fur coat.  They eat wildflowers or whatever else they can find and now there are less and less of them due to global warming.  This is one of the things we may no longer see in the future because we are not taking care of Mother Earth.  Those profiting from dirtying the air and water...where will they live after this planet becomes unlivable?

I have this  6 X 6 inch acrylic painting on canvas panel up on Dailypaintworks.  Sales on the site have gone down to nothing and I may soon have to leave.  Please go and take a peek at Pika and other paintings of mine.  They make good holiday gifts.
