I have an art blog. It is available here. I post small (under 8 X 10 inch) paintings there nearly every day, with most paintings starting at just $125, framed.

The blog has pretty much taken over the "On the easel section" of the site, I'm leaving this here for posterity's sake.

A red dot () denotes that the painting has sold.

This still needs work, but I'm at a good stopping point for now. I'll update at some later point, when next I work on it.

Much more successful, but I could'nt seem to shake my conviction that it wasn't very good...

So I started another...

Here are pics; from the unveiling, and in the home...
