My First Post :o)

Hello and Welcome, Come on in!

I thought I'd create a blog to share a bit about myself and my work so that any of you lovely folks out there can stop by and see how things are going and what's coming out new for artwork.

New right now is I am finally able to make prints of my past works. I have a couple available now and will be constantly offering new prints as often as possible when the images are rendered and ready for printing.

I have a shop on open now and am offering my prints from there and a few that will show up on eBay as well. Most will be in ACEO format of 2.5" x 3.5" but if you would like something larger just let me know. My user name on both Etsy and eBay is thesilvergardens.

I don't usually take commissions but if there is anything you would like me to create just let me know and we could most definitely figure something out. :o) I do have a rule though that I won't create anything dark or ungodly as I am a Spirit filled Christian and I hope you will please understand.

A few ideas I have next to paint I think will be in the area of an angel and maybe a hand painted window or two. Still working on the details of these and sometimes a better idea gets in the way and I end up painting that instead. lol

I have a few pieces that I have relisted on eBay currently on now. I am a little sad to see that homes can't be found for them at the moment but I do like my work (it's like a little part of me) so I'm also glad that they are able to stick around a little while longer too. Parting is such sweet sorrow. lol

It's just I am a stay at home mom and this is my only form of income. So not selling can hurt a little as I help out financially around here as much as possible. We are a one income family with only my husband working and we have two children in grade school. I paint when the kids are at school and hubby is busy or at work. I so LOVE quiet time. :o) When the kids were really little I painted at nap time time but I didn't ever get as much done back then. Now I have more time to myself as my youngest finally has full days of school instead of half days like last year.

A little about myself. I love Jesus, my husband, animals, gardening, painting, my family, Spring, chocolate, my soft warm robe (sometimes I will spend all day in it even when painting, lol), food (though my figure doesn't show it), the moon (that's why it's in almost all my paintings), and many other things that may just bore you listing them.

I am married and have been for 11 years with two children and 3 cats, a cockatiel, a chicken, 2 mice, and 9 or 10 different tanks and bowls with fish (I love fish) all nestled right in town here. But we have a big half acre lot with woods in the back so I don't mind it here. I grew up out in the country and would prefer it out there but God has found us a good starter home for us here. We have awesome neighbors and the house is old but comfortable and I have lawn and woods. I like it here. :o) But I would like to move back to the country some day.

Anyway, I think I am going to end here for now. I don't want to keep you here all day as I too have other things on my list for today. Thanks for stopping in and please check back often for updates and changes.

God Bless! Jesus loves you and died for YOU! Yes, YOU! no matter what you have done. Only through Him may we enter Heaven.
