Mighty ❀️🎨🐘

My sister-in-law told me, recently, that she collected pachyderms and wanted me to paint her one. She wanted an African elephant and in neutral colors, browns and yellows. I was happy to do it.

The rough sketch goes on… (My map)

Next, I start work on my burnt umber understudy…

The finished understudy…

I slowly start to add the yellow and more detail work…

I finish the detail work and the elephant is complete!!! β€οΈπŸŽ¨πŸ˜πŸŽ‰

An Adventure in Online Businessing!

I have to apologize for being absent from blogging for so long. It was for a good reason! I have been working on a big design project with my paintings. I knew about online selling of artwork, but being able to do so many great things with my art has been exhilarating!!!! Today, I am opening my store with Zazzle. I am so excited to share my designs with you!!!

Here is my store, KimGreeningArt (Don’t Blend In, Stand Out!):

https://www.zazzle.com/kimgreeningart/collections

I have been working on this for many weeks and it has been a labor of love. This is something I have always wanted to do, design shirts, canvas prints, tote bags and more… My absolute favorite thing to design was the wild and fun leggings!!! Talk about getting creative!!! This was more fun than should be allowed!!!

I told you!!! Wild and fun!!! These are my paintings on leggings!!!! How cool is that???β€οΈπŸ˜ƒ

There are so many things to choose from, including canvas prints, t-shirts, phone cases, throw blankets and pillows, water bottles, keychains, and the list goes on… They have sold out of the hi-top shoes, but I have plans to make them as soon as they become available. I hope that is soon…

Here is a sampling of the products that are available:

All canvas prints come in many sizes. Frames are available as well, that is sold separately.

Not only can you get t-shirts, you can put my paintings on hoodies, jackets, long sleeve shirts… You can choose which color you want as well. They offer several options, but be careful, some colors bleed through and aren’t always best. It is obvious from the picture which ones are good and which ones are not so good. My examples are what I like best, but I want you to be able to choose.

You can buy my phone cases for most phones, including IPhone, Galaxy, Samsung… There is a huge selection to choose from. They come in different colors as well. You get to choose. How fun is that??? πŸ˜ƒ

The throw blankets are standard size, but the pillows come in different sizes and materials. The pillows can be indoor or outdoor, depending on the fabric you choose.

The water bottles were a joy to create. They come in different sizes and colors. You can choose what you like best!! These were my favorite options. My husband loves the water bottles too!!! πŸ˜‚

The keychains come in different shapes. Again, be careful what you choose. Some options are definitely better than others. I want you to get the best products for yourself. The examples I show are great options, but the design doesn’t always go with all shapes.

Stop by and see for yourself. There is something for everyone. If you like wild and fun items, it’s in there. If you like simple, but elegant things, I’ve got that too. If you want something in a different color or personalized, I can make that happen as well. All items can be changed to suit your interests. Just send me a detailed message and we will work together to make the product you want with my art.

This is a dream come true. Starting my own business and getting to paint full time!!!! Can you tell I am excited??? β€οΈπŸŽ¨πŸ˜ƒπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

Happy shopping and have a nice day!!!! πŸ˜ƒ

The Eagle and the Goat

All on one canvas! There is actually a very sweet story behind this painting. A friend of mine moved with her family from one town to another. Her daughter was attached to her old school and participated in many of the school activities. She had lots of friends and was really sad to leave them.

Her mom got ahold of me and asked if I could paint the mascots for the Eagles and the Billies (billy goat.) She wanted real animals with the school symbols as well. I asked what her favorite color was and got started on this fun project.

The map goes on…

Then, the favorite color background goes on and it is … blue!!! πŸ˜‚

Next, I start work on the eagle and then the goat.

Detail work is done with brushes and finger painting. The images are more defined and the canvas is complete.

Moments That Last Forever: Ruth 1:16

22″x28″ canvas

Oils, (finished on January 23, 2018)

I have to admit, I wasn’t sure how this canvas was going to look. It is an unusual subject matter, but at the heart of it, this is a painting that a mom wanted for her daughter to help her understand a simple thing…

Yes, it is hard to leave your friends, but you never truly leave them. They will always be a part of you. Now, you can have new friendships and new experiences to go with the old. It is all part of who you are.

I think she got the message, cause she seems happy…

Many blessings to you, sweet friend! I hope many happy experiences are ahead for you! Lots of love and hugs, KWG
