Hello all! I just wanted to let everyone know that I am now on Etsy and I am trying to post new items everyday. This is taking some time, but please have patience with me. I will be selling mostly prints and cards and hopefully some other products as I go further along. If there is anything you would like to see or items you think I should sell please let me know. My Etsy address is http://www.etsy.com/shop/cherylmcnultyart
Here is a picture I had done about a year ago, but I was never really happy with the way the faces turned out on the snowmen.Here is a revised version, where I just painted new faces and placed them right over the old ones, since I am not computer savvy…:)
I really like the concept…hope you like it.
Sorry so long in posting…I have been busy trying to find which media to stay with, as I am all over the place. I seem to be falling back to pastels though, as I really love the realistic look to it.
I did the snowmen pics in acrylics, which were fun…but the Santa was really fun. I just love to blend and get the colors so vibrant! Anyway, I hope you like these.
Here are two more scarecrows to continue the Friendly Scarecrow series. I really like the one where he is jumping in the leaves!
I had sent my online art portfolio to Porterfield’s Fine Art and the president of the company sent me back some encouraging words within 10 minutes of sending it to them. He suggested I try acrylics for more color saturation as art licensing companies look for saturated color. He said he could not use my art this point in time. but it was “Awfully good”. I’ll take it! Usually you get nothing back but a rejection letter. This was nice.
He did like my scarecrow and my santa holding a present, which explains the reason for all the scarecrows. The more the better! Hope you like them.
I forgot to post this picture. I keep creating the Christmas designs because that is always the most popular with any kind of Licensing company or Greeting card Company. So even when it is hot and summer-like, I probably will still be pumping out Christmas. Oh well, at least it’s a fun holiday and you can think of so many ideas.
But anyway here is the latest and as you can see it is in my new banner overhead. I posted one with and one without text, just for interest. Hope you like it.
Well, here i am again, and this time I have 3 pictures I have finished and hopefully ready for the portfolio.
The Piggy Pudding picture makes me feel like I still have to add something, whether it is pockets on the apron or corner pieces of pines and berries. I may still have to add to this one. But the other 2 I am sure are finished. I hope you like them…it took me quite awhile…watercolor!!!! Enjoy!
Another pastel picture for Autumn. I could picture this one as a flag, of course! Enjoy!
