New Paintings to Share

Even with the kids out on a 4 day weekend, I had time to do some paintings this past Sunday. I wanted to share the new lovelies that will be making their way to some wonderful organizations. Yep.. it is that time again. Donation time. As a store owner we get asked all year long for door prizes, gift certificates, teacher appreciation gifts, product for gift baskets, etc. If I gave to every single one I would be long gone and out of business by now. Once in awhile I get asked to donate a piece of art for a good cause and I am always happy to participate.

This one I am calling Afternoon Tea. It will be going to the Heritage Art Auction to help raise money for the Heritage School. Normally I only do things for the school that my kids go. But I was intrigued by this one because if your painting sells...you get 1/2. I like that and I can broaden my clientele base for my paintings and for the shop.

This one is framed.

Here is another painting that I did called The Littlest Bird. This one is going to be in an Art Silent Auction at the Brooks Elementary School Fall Festival this Friday evening.
I was channeling my Artist friend Jenni Horne into this painting. She does several pieces with whimsical sayings. Here the verse is taken from a song lyric from Be Good Tanyas.. The littlest bird sings the prettiest song.
If you would like to bid on this painting, please contact me at flea@numail.org and I will pass your bid on to the art show organizer, Alison Kelleher.

And finally, this one will be hard for me to let go. I am just in love with him... I titled this painting Best Friend. He will be going to the Newnan-Coweta Humane Society for their First Annual Furr Ball on November 7th. It will be a Dinner/Dance and will be held at Something Special on Greenville Street. If you would like more information about this event, please call 770-356-1626.
Here he is close up.
