What I have been working on!

I thought I would share what I have been working on.  It is amazing when you have a deadline how fast time flies and how much you can get done when forced too.
These next few photos are large piece that I have painted for a local spring show.
I do not put them on Etsy due to the fact that they are large and I am not sure how to do the shipping.
I will take any advise you have on shipping if you ship large things!
This is a 27 x 5 inch piece inch of barn wood.  Love these stacked chickens!  The original design is by Rebecca Carter then I altered it.  It is hard to tell but the chickens looking down have eggs hanging around their necks. 
Patriotic chickens!  This frame measures 20 x 13 inches.  The original design is by Susan Jill Hall-love this one! 
Love this design by Cheri Saffiote.  The frame size is 26 x 16 inches and the pattern has been altered to fit into the screen. 
This design is a Shara Reiner's pattern and I have painted it big and small.  This frame size is 15 x 15 inches.  
I love this little guy and took him to show a gal and another gal bought it on the spot.  It is a Tami Rodke design.  I cannot remember the measurements. 
This pattern by Shara Reiner is large...the inset is 16 x 20 inches.  My dad had made this frame so that was more like a shadow box so the screen sits deeper.  This one sold fairly fast too.
I am lucky enough to have a good friend that allows me to put up a little display at her Jazzersize studio.  All the gals there give me great feed back.
I will be at the Simple Treasures Boutique at the Ogden's Union Train Depot.  I did this one last year and had a great time.  It was fun to walk around the Depot and look an all the displays from years past.
Got a few more things lined up to paint so I better get to it!
Enjoy your day,

  2. BARB these are WONDERFUL!!! Gosh, but your work is AHHHMAZING!!
    For my larger items such as these, I make my own boxes. It works out great and costs less shipping!

  8. You have been busy, Barb.
    Love everything. I'm with you on shippig big items??? I usually find a box for what I'm listing, so if it sells, I know it will fit in something!!! lol
    Good luck with your show.

  9. Well, you certainly work well under pressure. These are all awesome! I especially like the Welcome To Our Home one. Very nicely done sweetie :o)
    On your shipping, go to and you can calculate your postage without actually printing a shipping label. You'll have to enter the measurements of your box.
