I have been wanting to make some prints of some of my art work to put in my Etsy store and I finally was able to finish 4. I actually did 3 earlier, and learned an awful lot, it's not as easy as it may seem! So we kept those bird prints, and I made another set of them and also one other thing. I'm still learning!

These are on boards, with black trim so that they are ready to hang. It takes time to prepare the cradlewood boards for painting - the back needs to be taped off with painters tape so it won't spatter onto other areas, a layer of gesso has to go on and dry, then you paint the black on. The print is made on a special paper and adhered so that there is a line  of black showing around the edges. They are ready to hang, no framing needed!

I have them for sale now in my Etsy Art Store. We are hanging the original set of bird prints in John's office. Nothing's really moving in the Art Store yet, but I don't have a whole lot in it and that's OK. It will get there. I'm pleased to be able to have this part done, and plan to make more prints. I hope and pray to be able to paint more in the days ahead!

  1. They look fabulous! Bet they sell like hotcakes.

  2. They are so pretty and colorful! I really like them! I'm usually a printmaker but sometimes I enjoy painting birds with gouache paints for the color.
    Have a great day!

  3. TaDaa is right! I love the birds! I think once the word gets out there, that you will be very successful in your store! Is it ok for a sister to buy something? Love you!!!

  4. Love your prints,bright and cheerful.
    I bet they will sell well for you.
    Hope you have a lovely Easter.
