Small minded and boring!!!

My art is small minded and boring!!!

Well, that is according to another artist with a bone to pick! He said that I "only painted cats" and it bored him! Hmmmm, can this be TRUE?

Well yeah - I do paint a lot of cats. People tend to like them! I like them! Personally I think that anyone who doesn't like cats is probalby a little small minded. You have to be large minded to like cats!

But that's hardly all I paint. If he had bothered to look at my eBay he would have seen what I have up at the moment...

"My Land Has No Stars"



I'm kind of a bit confused as to how this could be confused with a cat... Doesn't look like a cat to me. Doesn't really look that small minded either. What do you think?

I put up a page of my weirder stuff the other day :) You can see it at http://www.freakish-art.com/

Anyway, if you are around eBay please check out my stuff - all those cute pussy cats! LOL

Saving for a harp!

Selling on eBay again - saving up for a harp! Will need something to do while I'm recovering. See, I am having an operation on my leg that is going to keep me confined to quarters for a period of weeks to months. Yucky and boring and without computer or paints!

So I'm selling paintings like crazy on eBay :)

Licorice is helping me by being cute and giving me lots of things to paint.





Painting other things too - like landscapes and cows. Haven't put the cows up yet, but here is a landscape

Elephants on sale

I gave in and listed my mini Elephant on ebay - starting at only 19.99!

I've got some progress photos of my backdrop. All I have to do now is to do the background - the sky and the ground - and then a row of two tone dots between that and the rest of the border.

Elephants, anyone?

Only 1.5" x 1.75", yet incredibly detailed and lifelike!

This tiny painting was done in oil paints on art board. This week it is available via here, my blog, for $49 which includes the postage worldwide. If it doesn't sell this week, next week I will list it on eBay starting at that price.

I work very hard to make my miniatures as good as I can - my goal is to enter and win competitions with them this year! I'm joining the Miniature Art Society, just as soon as they send me the entry forms.

Email me on eliza@elizasart.com if you are interested in purchasing this piece.

A general update

Lately I've been painting miniatures - really teeny tiny paintings, 1.5" x 2" or even, sometimes, smaller! Art Cards suddenly seem like murals!

And talking about murals I've been asked to paint a 7 foot by 6 foot one for the Basenji Rescue group. I've done them a portrait to raffle as well. Haven't taken a photo of the portrait yet, so I can't show you.

Don't forget the new auction site at http://www.art-cards.org/auction it's growing - slowly but steadily!

I've decided that I'm going to put up a picture here each week for a week before I list it on eBay - that way you get to have a go at buying it at a set price before it goes to auction. The price I'm going to ask for it here will be the starting price on eBay, so it will be better to buy from here!

Let's start with one of Licorice...

This is an oil painting on gallery stretched canvas, the good thicker stuff (1.5" deep). It is 8" x 10". Price will be $49 if you buy it from here, with $20 postage if you are in the US or other country which isn't Australia (which includes insurance). If you are in Australia postage will be $12 for the east coast and $15 for WA, which includes insurance.

Email me - eliza@elizasart.com - if you would like this cute painting!
