Future Christmas Card

I've started painting my Christmas cards for the year. I haven't decided if I am behind or ahead given how many I want to paint. This guy doesn't have a name yet, so if anyone has a suggestion I would love to hear it. Cheers!

Introducting Mr. Newton

I finally finished my new cat painting. Introducing Mr. Newton. Mr. Newton is painted on 140lbs cold pressed watercolour paper using artist quality watercolours. He was a tonne of fun to paint and has given me inspiration for my next painting.

Squidoo Lense

Over the past little while, I've been working on two different squidoo lenses: The Art of Madelaine and the Painted Feline. My goal with these two lenses is to provide a place to organize all the links related to my work so it is easier to find and surf.

On The Art of Madelaine, I have new products available through cafepress including mugs, prints, cards, and magnets. This lense also provides up to date information on my original art auctions through ArtByUs and any other artwork currently available. The other lense I'm maintaining, Painted Feline, features my feline art collection. This is a subject matter I am planning on expanding and developing further.

I haven't forgotten my 'painting a week' challenge, but unfortunately sometimes life can interrupt the best laid out plans. This weekend, I will have two finished paintings to post. Last week's challenge and this weeks.

Sneak Peak

Here's a sneak peak at my new watercolour painting... I was hoping to get him done by today, but I am falling behind a little. He'll be definetely done by tomorrow though... suppose to have sunny skies so there will be plenty of light to finish him by.

Busy Week

It's been a busy week with lots of projects on the go. I started two new postcard paintings this past week and I'm hoping to finish both tomorrow (if not, I'll still post what I have gotten done). I've also been working on some big updates and recoding of my online gallery and I'm hoping that that will be done in the next week or so. I'm making it more streamlined and using lots of CSS to clean up the code. It's taking a bit longer than anticipated, but looking really good! The picture below is a little sample of a webpage to come.

The other thing that is keeping me pretty busy these days is that I have a part-time job at a store in the local market. Its lots of fun and keeping me out of trouble. Painting is going a little bit slower, but I still am hoping to keep on the one painting a week on this blog.

So, I'm going to get some sleep and finish up those paintings first thing in the morning. Can't wait to show you!
