Keeping me company

It's been a studio day. Sad but true that about eighty percent of the time is spent doing other things in order to get a painting ready for sale.
I put a little sprite of a painting into a frame on my worktable to keep me company while I did mundane prep work.
This month I hope to be able to make a good sized donation to cancer research charities. Part will go to M D Anderson and part will go to Stand Up to Cancer. There has been increased "buzz" since the president mentioned supporting science research, and also mentioning a cure for cancer. YAY

This week was a very happy studio time. Managed to list several items and several sold. This little bit of apple, aptly named "Gala" from New Zealand, I think, was very fun to paint.
Check out both handmadehelp.etsy.com and paintingwell.etsy.com for the new things. And remember, all the money goes to cancer research. This month has been slow, but every dollar counts!
Special thanks to BrianneLee for the blog honor.

Springing Back

HandmadeHelp's trusty shopkeeper has been sick and out of town. It's already time to change the clocks and I haven't even gotten used to the changed year yet!

Hope to get some paintings and perhaps other items in the shop so we can continue our efforts to raise funds for cancer research.

Thanks for stopping by, and please stay tuned.....
