I had the mother of all aha moments this week. I have a new project. It’s a big one too, and I’ll tell you about it later.
When I’m about to start something new, whether it’s a new painting ,a new job, a new habit, or a new routine, I feel like I have to clear my energy. I suddenly get the urge to clean out all my closets, scrub my apartment spotless, get rid of stuff, and let go of old ideas.
So, to clear my energy for this new project, my new website, and my new adventures, I’m holding a sale in my Etsy shop.
For three days next week, beginning Tuesday at 7AM Mountain time and ending at 9PM Thursday evening, all small paintings are on sale for 40% off.
If you’ve had your eye on any of my small paintings, now is the time to scoop it up, because they will no longer be available for purchase online after this sale. You see, this is actually a closing sale. I’m closing the Etsy shop, letting go some work, and hanging onto my larger paintings for now, because I have big plans for those. The large paintings will be available again in the future, but not for awhile. If you’ve been hankering for one and just haven’t gotten around to making it yours, let me know so we can work something out!
I’m so excited for this new adventure! I promise, I’ll reveal all soon, but for now I am clearing energy.
Remember, Tuesday morning to Thursday night next week, all small paintings are 40% off in the Handprint Soul shop.
Thank you for being such wonderful friends and readers. Blogging and creating art wouldn’t be nearly as meaningful without you.
After my short visit to the beach in April, I stared thinking about beach art. Most of my art is more inspired by the Utah landscape of mountains, brillant sunsets, and solitary trees, but I truly adore the beach.
I’ve acquired tons of seashells and sand dollars over the years, but I’ve kept them in boxes because I’ve never been sure what to do with them.
Now I know:
These are a little bit bigger than the other minis I’ve done; these are 3×3 instead of 2×2. I had so much fun making these! I love using natural materials like sand and shells in my art. I think I’ll play with that technique a little more.
These little guys are available in the shop. I made my mom one of these for Mother’s Day and it looks great in her beach-themed living room. They’re also perfect for office desks or small rooms that don’t have a lot of wall space for original art. It’s nice to squeeze a little art in where we can, isn’t it?
