I said it yesterday, but I'll say it again. This is no doubt, my favorite small painting I've done. The glazes turned out so amazingly well on this--there's so much depth that you just want to stare at it all day long. Practically impossible to replicate on a dumb computer screen. I did in fact price it higher than the last one of this size, but only because I love this one *so much* that I won't be the least heartbroken if it doesn't sell. 'Course, the bills will be angry, but screw them.
And last night, just before bed, I listed these little dandies as well:Nautilus note cards! Woot! I spied the cool colored blank cards at Michaels the other day and immediately thought to myself, "Hmmmm....I know I'D love to receive a nautilus card in the mail...". And so, with the cutest pink envelopes to go with the chocolaty cards, packs of 4 of these lil' puppies are up and ready in the shop, for greedy hands and a pile of stamps. And really, since I printed these myself on my dandy new printer, they're super archival as well (and on delicious glossy stock--yum!).
I did end up buying Miss Potter last night and was quite taken with it. What a glorious flick! It's so innocent and sweetly done. And the bits of animation were the perfect touch--just a smidgen of it. If you've been debating on renting it, do go out and pick it up.
Well, I'm off to try and keep cool in this ghastly heat. Iced tea and bowl of Rainier cherries, here I come!
