New Artwork--Miniature

I have been doing some art in miniature form, called ATC's or Artist Trading Cards. For those of you who don't what they are, you can read up on them HERE. They are only 2 1/2" by 3 1/2". Now, on to the photos.

All 3 of these were done with ink and the bottom 2 are done in ink and W/C pencils. I have started trading these cards in a yahoo group. (These 3 are now gone, traded) If you want information on how to trade for any of my cards, email me MY EMAIL Please make sure you mention you are from my blog, when you write.
Thanks for looking!!! Hopefully, I will post more cards soon. These are so fun to make!

A New Painting

My newest work:

I had been dabbling in oil pastels but the weather got hot and I had to hide the pastels in the fridge. They melt when it gets hot. I have a few done and will post soon.
This one is done in watercolor pencils and ink on 140# watercolor cold press paper. Original size is 11 x 14. It is the 300 block of Main Street, here in Watertown, WI. I left off the store names because I am not sure about any copyright issues with them, so it's best not to include them. If you want, this one is for sale. $40.00 framed and shipping is extra. I prefer to take PayPal.
Thanks for looking! Comments and critiques are welcome.

2 New Paintings, landscape and pet portrait

Here is my first attempt at doing an animal. Doing fur scared me. lol But, I think that part I did good, I just need to change the overall painting and add more below the neck. I was told this looks like a "floating head". I will change that next time. This one is a 9x12 canvas board done in acrylics.

This is a very cool landscape I did called "Mountain Runoff". I found some videos of Bill Alexander and this is one he did. I love both his and Bob Ross's designs. This one is a 16x20 stretched canvas done in oil paints, in the wet-on-wet style.

Please let me know what you think. Thanks for looking!!

Palette Knife Painting

This is my very first try at palette knife painting and I think it turned out rather well. I have been watching an artist over at deviantART and wanted to recreate one of his. I will try a design of my own next.

Please leave a comment, if you like it. Thanks!

Next Oil Painting

This one was my second oil painting. It is 12"x18" stretched canvas and in a friend's collection. I don't feel any I have done can be sold yet. Maybe after I get good at this. Still in the learning stage.

So far, both paintings I have painted are done in the wet-on-wet style of Ross & Alexander. I am learning some other styles, in acrylic. I will post them soon. Please, any comments are welcome.
