Last week I mentioned that a lady from Canada contacted me about my Clay Tiles that I list in my Etsy shop. She mentioned that she would like one with her dogs and asked me if I would want to trade. Apparently there are many artists on Etsy that regularly trade with other artists. So I looked in her shop and liked this painting. Anyway, we agreed to trade, I created the Custom Dog tile that I posted here, and sent it off in the mail. I received this painting in the mail yesterday and I am very pleased to get it! I love the painting. I think it is very creative and it is proudly hanging in my home now. Please check out Serena's shop called heaven's earth. She hasn't received the tile yet, so I'm hoping to hear that she received it soon.
Because of this trade, I also added a listing to my shop for custom orders. So far I haven't had any orders, but I'm hoping that things will pick up in the future.
On a personal note, my daughter had her tonsils out last week, so I have been busy nursing her back to health and get her ready to move back to college next month. So I will not be accomplishing alot of personal artwork until after the move. My daughter wants me to paint some things to decorated her walls, but I don't know when that will happen!
