Getting Caught Up...

Slowly but surely, I'm getting caught up on the winners of the painting contest! Here's the latest...

"Lila's Zinnia"
8" x 10"

I did this painting on Yupo Paper because I wanted to force myself to be a little bit looser.
Yupo
is a synthetic paper that feels a bit like plastic, or glossy paper. Paint slide all over it!

I'm going to make cards with this painting - Click on the picture if you'd like a set! I have a set of 10 in my store, but if you want 5 or a mix of different cards I can do that too.



I want you to know that when I add links to dickblick, I get a small commission. I want to make it easy for my artist readers to find exactly what I use, so I would do this even if I didn't get a commission. If this offends you, just don't use my links! However, I hope that for those of you who want to try out some of the products I like, it makes it easier to access exactly what I use! I never post links to things I don't use myself. (Unless I just slobber over them and would use them if I just had the money to do so ; ) If you want to learn how to do this on your blog, I would be more than happy to share with you how to do it.

Your work is amazing!

I would be interested to know how to earn commissions from links posted. I must admit, I've never heard of dickblicks, but I giggled a bit when I first read it...

You can email me at sudstress@comcast.net or post in the comment section and I'll check back.

Thanks :)
