thank you!

Wow! Just had a card sale! Some one bought a card of ‘Climbing the Columns on Skinner Butte’….. That is so cool , thanks very much who ever you are :)

I haven’t been very active here for a while now, so many things happening so a huge thanks to folks that still check out my work. It is very much appreciated!

A mystery buyer!! Whoever you are....... Many Thanks!

Got notice a couple of days ago about a sale! Some one bought a card of the artwork ‘Three of a Kind’ (click~able hint hint lol) below. Thank you very much for the honor but I don’t know who I’m thanking!!

Actually I owe thanks to lot’s of people who’ve visited, fav’d, featured my work and commented lately. I haven’t been on much, work 12 hr shifts at a hospital, getting things done for ‘back to school’ (yes ME… a degree in nursing!) and taking care of my terrible two g’daughter (getting things ready for another g’baby in Dec!!) has kept me jumping here in summery OH!
Best of everything to all fellow RB’ers and thanks again to my mystery buyer!

Whew what a trip!!

Finally landed here in OH and glad to be hooked back to the net!!
Moved here (Columbus) from OR and goodness what a ride!! I had to follow the rental truck that was completely loaded and towing a car so it couldn’t go much above 55 – 60 mph…… talk about boring, the trip took about 5 1/2 days because of our truck.
Great weather each day though so no complaints there and thankfully everything arrived in the same piece/pieces they were in when we started!!
Kudos to my son Jake for doing such a great job with the moving truck… he had driven one briefly in Eugene helping a friend move but never this distance and definitely never towing anything! :)

I’ll do my best to visit everyone’s new work… so much to catch up with

best to all

On the move........ well almost!

I just would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their terrific comments to my work lately and offer my apologies for the sporadic ‘Thank yous’.

Things have been a bit hectic at my end here….
In a couple of really short days I’ll be moving cross country from beautiful Oregon to flatter but pretty Ohio!!

Doing the drive in my car and my son is driving a truck with all our belongings and towing his car! Should be a good trip, weather looks pleasant for most of our travel days!
Thanks so much again for the wonderful support…… I truly appreciate every one!

xx and (((hugs all around!!)))

Wow... sold two cards!!!

Just found out I sold two of my works as postcards to Bernie yesterday!!! I’m so happy and hope you like how they look Bernie! Thanks so very much :D The cards she bought are (you can click on the cards to go to those pages!)

Use the ‘Bernie’ link above to go check out her pages, she does awesome work!!

Sold a print... Woo Hoo!

My niece, mom of Ally who I made this design for bought a laminated print toady! They have just moved into a new house in Oklahoma and she said it will be perfect on the wall in Ally’s bedroom! I’m very touched and honored by her support of my work! Love my family!!

Size matters!!! Want to share...

I grew tired of seeing white borders or work cut off of my designs when previewed as cards or postcards unless I had intended them to be that way. Here is a size trick you can use to fit into the ‘ratio thing’ so that when your art is displayed as cards the design/image goes edge to edge and you have a good idea of where to put your signature so it isn’t cut off at the bottom of your work!…

When beginning your design or sizing your images start with a template size of 12 in x 8.16 in… this is 3600px x 2448px. (I keep a horizontal and vertical psd on hand) Then fit your design/image into that space, be sure to rename the psd so you keep the size template separately for future use. You may need to enlarge your image/photo and then adjust and crop it so what you want displayed is inside that

What a way to End the Day!!!!

I’m so stunned I can’t believe it, I just got word that Jack bought a postcard of my ‘Three of a Kind’ !!!!
My day started out with a sale (my first) and now I’m here in my pj’s feeling so jazzed from another I don’t think I’ll be able to sleep at all!!!! Thanks sooooo much Jack, what an honor for me :D
