Treat Yourself Tuesday! ~ Painting

My second blog post of the day! Sorry could have organised that better!

I have just got back from my art group and have just done my first real painting of still life, in acrylics. So this weeks theme is Painting which I am taking from Art Fire the site created for artists.

This is a hand painted card by Art by Joan

This porcelain planter is decorated with the Chinese brush painting technique.by Terrance Franz Lazaroff (otherwise known as Clayart) at £225 this is a real treat!

I love this picture! I love the way the bear is almost smiling! This is an original watercolour by Cherilynne Fine Art

 ok so I admit I have chosen this painting just for the Border Collie since I have a very cute one of my own :-) Also the concept of the painting made me laugh! This painting is by Todd Young Art

still life. This is the kind of thing I was working on today! But this looks so much better than mine but then I am just beginning! This is in oils by Meaghan Louise who lives in Australia! It's always nice to see art from different parts of the world :-)

I love the pastel colours in this one! One of the reasons I want to learn to paint is so I can paint sunsets with this kind of colouring. This is painted with acrylics by Pendragon Art Works. Pendragon too reminds me of my Home County Cornwall. "By Tre, Pol and Pen you shall know your Cornishmen" Which means names starting with those like Pendragon :-)

A painting that is so good it looks like a photo! I can't imagine ever being able to replicate what I see so exactly :-) This is handpainted by Veronica's Art

and finally, no collection of mine is complete without a piece of Jewellery and this piece is handpainted porcelain by Saniki Creations

Well I hope you have enjoyed my selection of treats this week though I understand they are treats for a very special occasion! But then Art is for life (not just for Christmas hehe)

I hope you will pop over and see these artists shops and the other wonderful pieces they have for sale and I hope to see you again next week.
