I have been cleaning out my studio~ I have listed lots of jewelry items and a couple of aprons on Ebay. Starting bids are 99 cents to $3.99! I may be adding more. FREE SHIPPING--so if you win an item with one bid, you are basically just paying shipping. Link to my Ebay is above, or you can type--"folk art Cris" in the Ebay search bar. Everything should come up. Have fun browsing!

I cam across a vintage book of music, used in a classroom during the 1930s, in an antique shop. It inspired these little paintings. I used complete songs to border the related art. The borders have a crackle/antique treatment and the whole piece is sealed with a mat finish. You can find them on Ebay by typing "folk art cris" in the search bar--or follow the links at the top of this page.

I had the day off and I experimented with some new techniques in acrylics. I like using lots of layers of washes and paints. It is hard for me to stray away from darker colors, I guess reds, greens, and golds are my "comfort zone", but I am working on it! ha ha The top painting depicts what some of us think about when we are at work all day--hee hee. The bottom painting is loosely based on an old photo of my mom and her twin. The photo was from about 1940. Both of these paintings are available on Ebay now~ It is easy to find my stuff by typing "folk art cris" in the Ebay search bar.
I have been experimenting with still life and landscape paintings. I will list this still life of three pears tonight on Ebay.

This is my first painting of the new year. It is not for sale, it is my attempt at an impressionist style painting of my three grown children. Below is the photograph I looked at to paint this picture. I took some time off to enjoy the holidays with friends and family and plan to get back into painting my folk art really soon! I wish everyone a wonderful new year~
