Color & Whimsy

Since I am currently busy working on custom orders, I thought I'd share some of my favorite paintings and prints available in my Etsy shop, Lana Manis Designs.

All originals may be viewed and purchased in this section of my shop.

And prints may be viewed and purchased here.

The last one may not be so colorful... but I love the bits of bright orange peeking through these abstract, putty-colored bouquets.

Do you have a favorite?

Be sure to check back in later this week for a bit of fun news!

Tantalizing Textiles

Antique French textiles...
antique silk and linen...
vintage velvet...
vintage wool...
reproduction cotton prints.

I have been working on puzzle ball pincushion orders, so once again, painting has been put on hold.
But that's ok... I enjoy handwork immensely!

Change of Plans

I had every intention of participating in 30 Paintings in 30 Days, but some custom requests have recently come in and I will be working to fulfill those orders. I am happy to have the work, but wish I could have hit this challenge wide open. Maybe I can work in a little painting a few times this month. :)

For now, please pop over to my other blog to see the folk art papercuttings I recently made:

Supplies CAN Be Pretty!

I'm getting ready for Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days...

and in order to stay inspired, I decided to buy some really pretty colors.

I usually paint with only primary colors, along with white, burnt umber, and sometimes black...
mixing my own colors...

but I wanted to have fun and try something new!
The paints aren't expensive, but a girl's gotta work with what she can, and these will work just fine.

While spending the day with one of my sisters, I found this tall chevron vase at Goodwill.

I love the color and it's great for my longest brushes.

I'm just about ready... all I need now is to clear off my table and make room at my easel!

Check back September 1st for 30 Paintings in 30 Days!

Tidying Up Before 30 Paintings in 30 Days

Before I begin Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge, I figured I'd get a few dozen vintage velvet pumpkins made and listed in my Etsy shop. Now that I have that taken care of, I can put those things aside and clear off some space for paints, brushes, and canvases. :)

There are three sizes available, as well as a few sets of stacked pumpkins. If you'd like to see them, click here for my shop link.

As for pumpkins in other mediums... I have several pumpkin paintings listed here.

Check back in September for 30 Paintings in 30 Days!

Whimsical Watercolor Sketch Sale!

Come on over to my Honeysuckle Lane shop blog to see all of the art for sale. This little blog is where I randomly list handmade items, vintage and antique items, and have flash sales from time to time.

These 5x7 watercolors are only $20 each and go towards my emergency refrigerator fund. Ours is just about to quit on us and I am going to buy a cheap one until we remodel the entire kitchen and I can buy the appliances I want. :)

I'll be sharing new art for Daily Paintworks soon.

Daily Paintworks, Again

Since I am ever hopeful that I can start painting on a regular or semi-regular basis, I have decided to re-join Daily Paintworks.

My plan is to list my original art at DPW and sell my prints on Etsy until I have something more permanent, like my own e-commerce website.

Right now I am listing the few pieces left over from the Lavender Festival and hopefully in another couple of weeks I can start listing new art.

You can always find my links in the side bar to the right, or by clicking the SHOP! tab near the top of this blog.

Thanks for visiting!
