About a year ago I began working on HandmadeCloud with the intent of it becoming a fully digital download shop that would supply individuals, families, teachers, students, interior designers and other businesses with original stock illustration. After many attempts and much frustration to get the site working properly, I decided to switch shopping cart systems. I’m very excited to say that Big Cartel works wonderfully in conjunction with PulleyApp and will serve all your illustration and decorating needs from within the comfort of your own home.
What exactly is a digital fine art download? A digital fine art download is a high resolution scan of an original piece of artwork. It is really no different than a photograph taken with the digital camera. It can be printed on Tshirts, coffee mugs, shoulder bags or even dinner plates. You can print it out on your home printer, bring it into your favorite local printer or upload it to a Print on Demand website and have them print it out at the size you want to later frame for hanging on your wall.

After many weeks of working on her she is now completed. I had some issues with the original digital scans and chose to scrap them and rescan her which took some time. She turned out pretty cute as she blows bubbles to water and grow her garden of pink flowers. Continue reading

I feel as grey and calm today as the weather dripping from the sky outside.
My Great Aunt Theresa passed away yesterday. Theresa was like a grandmother to me. And She was like a Mom to my Dad and his four siblings after my Dad’s Mom passed away when he was five. His father never remarried and Theresa became the surogate Mom to his five children along with raising her own four children. She was a generous and beautiful woman.
When someone dies you can never tell how you will react or when the tears will flow or even if they’ll come at all. They came in waves for me after the phone call from my dad early yesterday afternoon. I sat on deck and simply cried.
Tonight will be difficult and filled with emotion but it will be happy at the same time to see my family, some of whom are traveling from very far away to attend the funeral. The last time we gathered on my Dad’s side of the family was for my cousin Marc’s wedding which was only one month ago.
Series Title – A Little Something (series of three paintings)
Medium – Kroma Acrylic, Ceramcoat Varnish and Faber Castel Pitt Artist pen on Cypress Archival card stock
Size of each painting – 8.5 x 11 inches / 21.5cm by 28cm)
I drew each card with Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens (India Ink), Pilot pen (Opaque white ink) and Prismacolor Colored pencil on antique & vintage wallpapers that I salvaged when renovating my house last year.
An ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals. They can be created with any medium on any surface but must adhere to the standard size of 2.5 by 3.5 inches.
I am thinking of making a box out of the vintage wallpaper to house these cards in that is similar to this box of cards. Once the box is done I’ll list the whole set in the shop. It’ll likely be priced around $1000.
And below is a detail of three of the cards.
And isn’t life (only) what we perceive it to be?
