eBay Videos & Camo - Boykin Spaniel in Oil

I keep forgetting to mention that I am starting to list some videos on eBay - I have some really good videos from some great artists. I have started with some Ron Ranson, Skip Lawrence and Charles Reid (I love all of them!!) in watercolor and a couple oil painting ones, including Helen van Wyk - on painting children's portraits. If you'd like to see the videos I have for sale they're here: I started all the auctions at 99 cents and I combine shipping. I've really enjoyed viewing the videos, but I haven't watched them in a while, and I think it's time for me to pass them along so that someone else can learn from them. I think that is one of the greatest thing about eBay - sharing things that you're not going to make a bunch of money on, but you don't want to throw away!! I really like the idea that someone else will be viewing them and enjoying them as I did. Most of them I bought second-hand on eBay. I will try to list some more videos on Sunday, if not, I'll be listing them in the next week. That's the only thing I don't like about eBay is that it takes so much time, although this time, I didn't do as much explanation and description as I usually do. Just trust me that they are good videos and you'll learn some great things from them. Even if you're just inspired by them, that's enough!!

Now, I'll show you what I did tonight -

congratulations to Jennifer, another new collector
Thank you for your patronage :)

Wow 2 posts in one day - well, not actually, since it's after midnight here.

I'm actually not sure if I'm completely finished with Camo's portrait, but since I needed to send out an email, I thought I'd stick a painting in it :)

He is a beautiful dog - and the painting turned out really well, I think. I am in awe when the paint just comes off the brush right. I know that my talent is God-given and I am just as amazed as you are when it happens LOL . . . I know I haven't done anything to deserve this! I do study and read, but still, it just amazes me when a painting goes as well as this one did right off the bat. God gives amazing gifts. I just hope I don't waste it!

Now, I've got to head for bed, because I am attending the dedication of the portrait that I donated to the Dallas Police Department of one of their officers who was killed. I debated going, because I don't like to be pointed out LOL. Oddly enough, I love teaching and have no problem with public speaking, but that's because I'm not the subject. But, I'm going to tough it out and go. Actually, I'm not the subject here, either, the Officer is. So anyway, wish me luck :)

Thanks as always for your support and encouragement -
