The Great Shift

Original acrylic and oil pastel on 12" x 12" gallery wrapped box canvas. Available at www.livefunky.etsy.com

I don't know what other people will think of these really raw new paintings, but I'm digging them. I just wanted to do something different, something truly outside the box. Every instinct I've got to make certain compositions or marks are being washed over and broken. I'm not sure where this journey is taking me, but it's fun!

I'm wondering what sort of products I could offer for Christmas. I've never done much to change my shop during the holidays, except for one time when I made some handpainted gift tags. Greeting cards maybe? Or keepsake boxes? Or should I just let the other thousands of sellers offer things for Christmas and stick to what I do best - abstract paintings. I'm undecided at this point. Thoughts?

as the others have said the colours you use are ace. If you like abstract, you'll definitely dig these :)

You could have a go at some greeting cards for christmas. Could always start with something small and see how it goes.
