Fly Away Birds

I've been working hard on a series of paintings for my ETSY shop (apaintedpage).  I honestly loved making them and I am pleased at how they came out.  They are a set of five small mixed media paintings.  I tried to treat them like my art journal so I wouldn't feel so intimidated.  I had spring in mind when I painted them.  

Since I opened my ETSY I feel rushed to get things in there.  I'm trying to remember it's a marathon not a sprint.  And once I start rushing I get frustrated and discouraged.  So, I plan to add more items to the shop gradually.

  1. Lovely chunky canvases - the colours are beautifully combined, and the bird silhouettes are so evocative.

  2. Hi Danielle,
    All of these paintings are very beautiful and unique, great collection.

    I have an Etsy shop…..
    At first, I too felt obligated to fill the shop but I didn't like the feeling of being rushed so now I take my time , my only trouble is I get too attached to my work and don't like to part with it : )
    I think keeping active with art groups, you'll have plenty pieces to fill your shop in no time. Just enjoy the journey.

    I especially love that they feel like SPRING! ;-)
