The Little Miracle Pastel Painting

Hello all.  Of course I know it has been awhile, but I am still alive! I am trying so many different painting projects right now, and although I seem to be all over the place, I somehow make it work.  I have so many ideas in my head all the time. I wish that I could get all of these on paper NOW! But alas, I cannot. Unfortunately.

Anyhow, this is a painting I created awhile back, but I fixed it up with more color and softened it just a bit and put it on my Etsy Shop for Christmas.  I just love angels, and since Christmas is coming up fast, I thought this would be the perfect painting that could symbolize the miracle of Christmas.It seems as though this little angel is about to give this little baby an angelic kiss. A painting of pure love and devotion. I also think it could be used in a nursery as a guardian angel print.

I hope you like this one and hope to have more ideas up here soon.  Until next time!  Cheryl

House Flag Design Samples

I have always been interested in submitting my best designs to  house flag manufacturing companies, and since my old portfolio page is now being moved to a new site, there is no real place to showcase my art right now. For this reason, I am setting this page up to display my art pieces that I think are best suited for that market. I can also add any borders and text if needed. I hope you like what you see here.

Please feel free to contact me at mcprop@cox.net if you have any questions. Thank you.  Cheryl McNulty

Snow Couple Acrylic Painting

Just feeling kind of Christmasy!  Don’t know why, but even though it’s not even quite fall yet, I’m already wanting to play Christmas music!  Not the sing song “Jingle Bells” kind of music, but the soft, no words kind of Christmas music.  The kind I want to paint by, it makes me feel like a kid again with no worries.  Do you want a good music cd for that kind of music? Try Radhika Miller “Blossoms In The Snow” on RadhikaMiller.com.  You can hear samples and you won’t be disappointed!

But I just love this cute, little snow couple! Just enjoying each others company in the frosty air!  They probably don’t even know it’s cold outside.  Wait a minute!  They’re made of snow, how would they know!  wink wink

I hope you enjoy the painting of these two!  If you are interested, they are being sold as cards and prints on my Etsy Shop.  The link to my shop is on my “about”page.

Have a good day!

Christmastime Is Here….

Hello! I know…I know…it’s not even Thanksgiving and I’m singing along to Charlie Brown’s Christmas CD and getting SO in the mood for Christmas right now. I guess it’s because I am an artist and in order for me to think of Christmas designs, I have to FEEL Christmas, and so I play Christmas music to get my creative juices flowing. Plus, it brings out the child in me and the ideas just flow. I can’t explain it!

Recently, I finished putting my designs on ceramic tiles for coasters, made some gingerbread salt dough ornaments and put some cards together for a shop that’s in the area here. I think they came out rather nice. Now I want to make some for me! Also, I am thinking of opening an Etsy store with my cards and prints and more soon, so there will be a place for those who like my designs to go and purchase whatever they like. I had an Etsy store once, several years back and started doing quite well, until I was advised to take my shop down in order for me to look more professional to the larger companies I wanted to send my artwork to. Bad idea. I could have had such a following right now, and doing what I love to do, but have not gotten anywhere with the larger companies at all. Now, I even see well known artist’s on Etsy and Fine Art America, so I guess I would be in good company right now!

But anyway, I will be on Etsy soon (already have my banner ready) and maybe even go back on Fine Art America. I think my store name will be CherylMcNultyArt, so please watch for me,and I will let you know when I am up and running! Now back to my Christmas music! 🙂

Finished Pastel Painting of My Dog Max

Yes, I finally finished Max’s picture, and when I was done…I felt a little sad.  It felt like I could actually touch him…and his eyes are just how I remember them…like looking into your soul.

So here he is, and hope you like him.  If you would like me to do a pastel portrait of “your” pet or someone you know,  please e-mail me and I can give you all the info on price and  to what I would need  as a picture to use as a reference.  They make great gifts for people for Christmas, especially if you don’t know what to get for someone, and the portraits last a lifetime! My e-mail is mcprop@cox.net if you have any questions. You may also go to my portfolio site at http://www.cherylmcnulty.com, where I have samples of portraits I have done with the originals to compare.  Any design you see on this site can be made into a card, print, canvas print or whatever. I just take a design and send it through Zazzle, and make anything…so just ask and I will see what I can do.

I am also just starting to do watercolor pictures of angels with cats/dogs/pets,  for those who have passed away.   They can be comforting to the owners, I think.  I can take the picture of the pet with added wings and paint it to look just like the pet with an angel.  I will put up a picture of one asap.  Thank you and hope you like my Max!  He’s on my wall right now! 🙂DSC08581
