Thank you for the [quite many] sales (and for 17 features and 7 top ten's, too!)

It’s dark and rainy here, but good news keep coming :)
Hereby I would like to thank the buyers of my works, as well as hosts of the groups for features, and voters in challenges for their votes:…

Sales:
First of all, thank you very much to annamora who bought a greeting card of Hands: Beginning,

three greeting cards of With love…,

two greeting cards of Hands: Receiving,

and a calendar Hands

(I am thankful to dear Anna for pushing me a bit to finish it ;) You may want to see Anna’s wonderful portfolio, and read why she concentrates on hands more than usually these days!),

and thank you very much to an unknown buyer who just bought a mounted print of Illuminated.

Except of these RB sales, I’ve also sold a 16×24 canvas (printed by a local company) of Vrouwen van Even-Naar 2, in B&W version, two

Please help to stop discrimination at RB

Hello everybody,…

Yesterday, I came to some news that are not really that new but very shocking. Please read further and help our fellow members.

The problem: RB is experiencing too much fraud and being pushed by PayPal, they have to lower the fraud ratio asap. Unfortunately, RB’s ‘solution’ is to disallow new members from certain (many!) countries to join RB, and existing members from these countries, to buy anything from RB, including their own art.

RB claims that such a solution only affects about 1% of all sales. Unfortunately, sellers are not the same as buyers, and many a good artist and honest member of the community became discriminated by this ‘solution’ only because of his/her country of residence. Such a ‘solution’ is very impolite to members of the community from those countrie

39999 views :)

I have just clicked on the ‘Art’ button and noticed that nice number :)

To make the information complete: the 39999 views relate to my 125 public art works, my 13 T-Shirts scored 9914 views, and my 4 calendars (3 of them very new) 216 views up to now.

Thank you very much for looking at, commenting on, and favoring my works!

Have a nice day and good light :)

Some good news again: sales, features and top ten's

Three features, and three 'Top Ten's

I’m having very busy and interesting time just now, trying to figure out if a part-time career in photography here in the Netherlands could work for me… Not much time to add new works to my RB portfolio (and I can’t do too much anyway before some house-keeping on my computer will be finished, because both my harddisks got totally full!) but it seems like my works submitted earlier are still doing well:…

Tea time dreaming

First sale!

Big thank you to the unknown buyer who has bought a greeting card of Eiger about two weeks ago! I hope you will like it :)

I was away for one and half week at the end of February/begin March, with no chance to get to a computer (and very busy the whole week after with no bubbling again…), so I missed it completely! Unfortunately, if there was an email from RedBubble with an information about this sale, it probably got to my spam folder that is deleted automatically (I’d like to know who the buyer was!).

Have a nice day and good light :)
Lenka (very happy :))

"At the lake" featured on the RB homepage!

What a great surprise today! I went to check my Activity feed and was surprised by the unusual number of new comments (10) and favorites (14) on my photograph At the lake

(normally I quickly go through the list and open the links in new tabs, and only after that I read the comments and check for new works… that’s why I didn’t know immediately :)) and on the page 3, there was the reason:

It is my first work featured on the homepage (and I missed it there!), and it feels great :)

Thanks for featuring, and thanks for your comments and favs, you’ve made my day :)
