Busy Christmas season

I am sooo excited. Yesterday I finished my last commission for Christmas.
I think I had to much confidence in myself and I accepted a lot of commissions so I had to work a lot!
These paintings were made for 3 sisters.And this is what I didn't tell you in my last post. On Mistletoe Madness (the Christmas art festival) I met the owner of The Homestretch and she asked me if I wanted to have my paintings in her store.
I accepted so now my paintings will be for sale locally there.
I am very excited because her store is so beautiful and there are other artist that I really like there too.
And the best for last. My 9 year old Ashley started painting. She is very good at drawing but she didn't paint much before.
She did this "Cow on the Moon" painting, a 5x7 acrylic on canvas and she asked me to open an Etsy store for her and after reading about kid's accounts, I opened her store and she sold the painting. That girl was sooo happy!
Her Etsy shop is www.ashliliart.etsy.com

Congratulations! Homestretch looks like a wonderful place.
The paintings are all beautiful. I'm sure you are relieved to be done, tough.
I went and added Ashley's store to my favorites. So cute!

Aw! That is so awesome that your daughter has her own store! Hurray for her! I was reading in a magazine how one girl sent herself to college on her etsy sales, Hhaha, maybe I should open one for audrey ;)

Congradulations on the shop and to your little girl for selling that painting. That is so great. I will have to show my daughters who are the same age. They just love to do art too. I just set up an Etsy shop myself and will list after the holidays. I think I need to start following your lead. You are a few steps ahead of me and doing exactly what I want to do. Any tips? Feel free to throw them my way!

Did you paint the same thing three times on the paintings for the sisters? How was that?
