A Shop Update Heading Toward the Holidays

Although I've shared my calendar and some new paintings here on my blog, I haven't really shared many of the other items I've been adding to my shops for the holidays.

Because time is running out for holiday shopping (last day to order in time for Christmas delivery is December 20th), I thought I'd share a few things that would make good gifts.

There are now a few watercolor pendants in my Etsy shop. Each is a a tiny, framed original painting and comes gift wrapped in a pretty kraft brown box. (All my other, flat items come gift-wrapped in brown kraft paper).

I've also added a few notecard collections, each with a different number of blank cards and brown kraft envelopes (they have my new logo on the back).

I finally got around to printing some of my linocuts on nice, acid-free printmaking paper and I love how they turned out.

And finally, I painted some more goldfish. These aren't in groups like my others, but are individual 5x7 paintings of single fish (they can be found here).

This sweet, fat, red and white spotted fish is my favorite:

Don't forget to use the coupon code you received in my last newsletter (haven't signed up yet? You can do it here) to receive your discount. I'll be slipping extra goodies into all my packages, too.

Thank you to each of you who has purchased my art this year. It means so much to me.

And thank you to each of you who read this blog (and put up with my occasional marketing even if you're not planning on purchasing my art -- it's not really what this blog is about, but as I shared in this post, sometimes I need to do more of it). That means so much to me, too.

Enjoy your week. May it be filled with joy, beauty and peace.
