Jewel Tones and Moo Cards

I finished two more paintings yesterday. The first one is a "companion painting" (I totally made that up... but you know what I mean...) to my other palm branch painting. This one has a bright white background and turquoise branch. 16x20 canvas, peeps. 

This next one is on a 9x12 canvas. I'm loving working with these rich jewel tones. Actually, I ran out of my beautiful blue turquoise paint already so I have to order some more. I've tried mixing it but can never get it as good as this particular hue. 

I think this peacock feather looks a little quirky and a bit alien-esque but I really like it. This guy's on a pale gray background. 

Gonna list them later today. Don't you feel special that I show them to you before I put them on Etsy? That's cuz you are special. :) *Cue warm fuzzies and floaty hearts from me to you*

OH! And I also got in my super dee duper awesome business cards from the other day. Wanna see? 

I'm gonna show you 180 different shots of them because I love them so much and because I can. And cuz you guys told me yesterday that you love everything that I do. :)

One side has a picture of my artwork and the other has a picture (that I took and think is really rad) of a paintbrush and my 411 (that means info).

I think it's bad to love your own business cards this much. They exist to be given away, but I just want to keep them to myself. 

Along the same line, I feel the same way about my art. I go into my studio and look at my paintings and feel really joyful. And I'm really looking forward to my first sale, but I think it's going to be hard at first to let them go. Especially this first batch, cuz they are really special to me.
