Gems and Watercolors. An Unexpected Surprising Combination.

Gems, Watercolors and Blessings
A friend recently suggested that I offer a free charm made with semi-precious stones with each miniature painting I offered on line. Well it is an experiment in progress. I haven't a clue where it will lead. The truth is I love little gem chips. And I was totally inspired by the late summer flowers along the bi-ways of  our Central Virginia country side. So I started playing with these little watercolors.

They come in two sizes 2.5 by 3.5 inches for the ACEO size, and 1.5 by 2 inches for the Tiny Miniature paintings. The gem charms are either directly attached to the paintings with a hand made hanger after they are in their plastic sleeves or they are are attached to the plastic sleeves with hand made hangers so that they don't interfere with framing options.

The last experiment I did was to paint a little painting and actually attach the gem stones directly to the  painting where the flowers are.  It makes a neat affect.

Name Changes! On Ebay! New Art Cards too!

Well everyone has probably heard about the hacking of eBay (finally heard that is) and that we were all asked to change our pass words etc. Well, I decided after 12 years of eBay I would change everything and update it. My new seller name is "llmartinartist"  you can also search llmartin or LLMartin in the general search and my newest art will appear. You can also directly click this link: Linda Martin on Ebay

Have I lost confidence in eBay. Naww. Its the same old same old. This is the Internet and every time a technological advance happens some one is challenged to try to circumvent it. If you are going to be on the net you should make an effort to protect your self  such as changing your passwords etc every once in a while. Its just a part of Internet life.

Having said that now for more serious business:  I just have to share my two newest Heck Horse Collector card sized miniature watercolors. I went out to visit the Hecks last Friday and saw three of the Senior stallions as well as all the foals and mares. More paintings to come of course. Here are two for you to day. And Please check out all of my wild horses on eBay!

New Camera and Some Sweet Decor Prints on Fine Art America

Linda L Martin's  Newest Prints are Just Right for Artistic Groupings for your updated Decor

Flowering Shrubs with Color Pallet and
display suggestion
I finally bought my new digital camera in March. It is actually a smaller version than my SLR Rebel but it is indeed a Canon. I have been photographing for a number of years. I started out as a horse-sport photographer and was published numerous times. Today I live a less exciting life. And now I have both prints of my paintings for sale as well as prints of my most recent digital photography for sale.

One aspect of these images is that I have been doing them in subject groups and choosing the best 4 so they might be displayed as a grouping on the wall. I actually have a grouping of watercolors on my wall in my kitchen that way.

It really is a wonderful way for me to be creative and having instant gratification of the artistic outlet.
