A Revamp

 
 
I made this painting many years ago. I had first made this into a card when I first started my Etsy shop. I titled the original painting "Joyful Noise." I decided to revamp this older painting and make it into an art block. I added some of the Bible passage, Psalms 98:4 into the image with my Adobe Indesign.  

It is a good idea to go back and look at older sketches that you can alter in some new way to create a brand new product. I am constantly thinking of new price points to have in my Etsy shop, and at art festivals. In this tough economy you need to be creative!

Great idea! I often wonder if I should go back and alter some of my button items that aren't selling....maybe a new look will spark some activity...

Again, such wonderful colors and design. I enjoyed your Whimsical Landscape painting class this year and I finally wrote about it on my blog, http://adrianembellish.blogspot.com/.

Your style is so happy, I am very glad you share it. Your class was a bright spot for me and I am still creating paintings that are whimsical and colorful. Thank you!!!!
