I got an email from some person who is interested in buying one of my painting.He wanted to on behalf of a client,but want to pay me by check.Check will be more than my asking price,he wants me to deduct my price honestly and send him back the balance through Western Union.My daughter who works in the bank advised me not to do it as it could be bank fraud, and i could be held responsible for fraud,but I already snet back the email that i would accept.then i sent another emial telling thje buyer that i cannot accept the check but will accept payment by pay pal.Did i do the right thing or I will lose the buyer.

Inspired by so may artist in their blogs I have decided to start my "One Painting" or "One Creation A Day" today. Time is 10:30 am. I am hoping to post something on the blog by the evening. That is if my daughter does'nt go into labor. We are expecting a little princess. Oh boy I can't wait to hold my first grandchild. Wish me luck.
I was able to complete my study of flower.I have been planning to create a series of paintings for quite some time.The theme is flowers.I am quite an ethusiastic gardener.I love spring and summer and all the colors of nature at that time.I am ot quite satisfied with the result.I guess i will keep trying till i get what I want.Only then I will make large paintings.Wish me luck.

My blog is about my art presence. I am trying to create my nich in the art world. Ofcourse I want to be famous and sought after artist but most of all I want to sell my paintings. Realistically speaking, to make new art I need to buy materials as I am a stay-at-home artist because of my son's illnesses and surgeries. Eventhough my family supports me in all I do, especially my daughters, but it can be a little tough sometimes. Two of my daughters are graphic designers. The third one is studying accounting but she is the one who helps me with putting all my work on the internet.

I am trying to be a regular organized person which i have'nt been for the last several years. The reason was my son being very sick. Every year he goes through so many surgeries. Since 2007 the pressure is off a little bit.I was painting on and off and produced a significant amount of paintings which I will keep uploading on my blog.
This one is titled "Mother and Child," oil on canvas.

I always want to explore new mediums and materials.These two paintings were done on metal with acrylic paints. The metal showing under the paint gives them a luminiscent quality.Plus the flow of color is really inspiring. Both of them are 36 x 36.
I hope you like them as much as I liked painting them.
