Painting of the Day - SOLD - 10/24/06 - NEW ETSY STORE!

In Search of Soul - SOLD
Acrylic on 36" X 36" on canvas

This is an older painting, but I am showing it here today because I just listed this for sale in...

my new Etsy Store!! www.livefunky.etsy.com

I am SO excited because this site is fabulous! Etsy is a place to buy and sell all things handmade, and the wide variety of artists and crafters is incredible. Everything from paintings, to jewelry, to pottery, to baby t-shirts, and so much more! (I sound like an advertisement, but truly I think this site is something special!).

For all the Ebayers out there, I'm sorry to say this means I'll be closing my store soon, but I plan on doing a few regular auctions still, so I won't disappear completely on Ebay! My reasons for moving over to Etsy are many - first of all, it's focused on all original creative items, and as we all know, ebay has EVERYTHING. Second, the fees are so much more reasonable, so that's always good for a starving artist! Third, it's easy for me to upload images, and it's easy to navigate for buyers. And lastly, as much as some people love shopping for art on Ebay, there are some that are put off by the site, and less likely to take an artist seriously if they use the site to sell their work. That's too bad, because there are many, fine artists that consistently sell originals on Ebay. But things being as they are, it's a good time for me to move on....

(Speaking of, my husband and I were just reminiscing about the Muppet movies and we sang "Movin' Right Along" - that song is so great. So I'm sharing it here because you're going to think of it right now and I guarantee it'll make you feel good!)

Love, Miss Piggy
