I suppose now I should show yall a bit of my art & tell yall about other artisans I show off as well as favorite pets. I have said before, my site or shop actually is http://LindaGJ.Etsy.com so if yall want to mosey on over there, you'll be taken good care of. You will, at least, leave with a smile on your face. If not while leaving that you experience a smile, I am willing to bet most of you will have the experience of at least one smile! Maybe yall have figured out that I also made the fish that is in my title as well as the picture I showed with my very 1st post.
This particular painting above is an illustration I did of Miss Peanut Jones. It's taken from one of my unpublished children's books, Miss Peanut Jones, The Itty Bitty Kitty from New York City. I was working on this particular painting during 9-11 of all days! It then became a memorial and has little messages within the painting that mean something to me. Loved ones that have moved on to Heaven. Peanut was alive at the time, but this was a such a sad time as she was from NYC & I had lived there for around 12 years. We'd been in Houston for a few years but NYC was still fresh in our minds. The original painting is around 22" by 18", but I sell 8" by 11" laser prints of them, and notecards printed from my computer. Yall may also go check out my Flickr page which again is: http://www.Flickr.com.photos/VisualSmilesGallery
On my Flickr pages, I have collected some of my art as well, along with some purchases I have made from other people that are from Etsy, as well as pics of some of my favorite housepets, and Etsy Treasuries I have made as well as the ones I have been in. Treasuries are hand picked items grouped together and shown on the Etsy site itself. They stay up on Etsy for 3 days, yet I save them and also list the shops that the items are from. I eventually made this a project and feature Houston artists! I also have a show off section where I've been shown elsewhere on the internet on other sites. From now on, I will share the pics I show on Flickr along with showing them here. To tell you the truth, I don't know where this blog is going, so I am taking it one day at a time to see what direction it takes me.
