My new digs … again *sigh*

INTERNET

First of all, I must say I’m probably not the best person when it comes to the moving of sites on the internet which is why I asked my dear Husband to do that part for me. I let him know I’d announced on my blog that I was moving my wordpress blog to my actual website and he informed me that I should have let everyone know what to do beforehand. I told him that I thought I did by posting that I was moving … apparently, that wasn’t the case. After being teased for years that I go into too much detail, he informed me that I should have been more detailed! *sighs* So here goes….

Apparently (after receiving more instructions!), if you follow my blog through WordPress (by using the little “follow” button at the top so it shows in the reader) and not through the email subscription section you will not receive updates when I make a new post. Gee I really hope I got that right and explained that enough. If not, perhaps someone who has already done this before could let me know in the comments field.

Basically, all you have to do to keep following me is Subscribe via Email – that way, your subscription will come over with me when I move.

I really hope that makes sense and I’ve tried not to be too detailed but also tried not to confuse people too. *laughs*

I told my Husband, “I just paint, not move blogs around!”

Hopefully this works and if you haven’t already subscribed, then please do that via the email box at the top right of the sidebar and I hope to see you all very soon!

ps. Of course, if I still haven’t been detailed enough, I shall be posting on here again. *winks*

Chipmunk riding Harley Davidson custom painting

One of the pieces I’m currently working on a custom request for a character with dark sunglasses on, riding a Harley Davidson.  I’ve opted to put the motorbike on a highway doing a ride-by with some brown/green grass at the edges of the road.  The chipmunk will be the character as I think it’s rather cute with it’s oversized teeth.  I put a leather vest on it so it should blend right in with other motorbike enthusiasts I hope.

Part 1 – Sketch of chipmunk (hope it looks like one because we don’t have chipmunks here in Australia, so I had to google what one looked like haha!) riding a Harley Davidson.

The client has asked for the theme to be black and orange so this will be quite striking with the colour contrasts.  I’m looking forward to painting this and excited to see how it turns out!

And now this one is finished – If you would like to see each stage as it is painted, I post them on my fb page at:  https://www.facebook.com/LollipopDesignsAU  If you like my art, please swing by and “Like” me on Facebook too.  🙂

The painting finished is below.

Word Pop Art handpainted painting

Posted in Hand painted Children's Art - My Painting with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 16, 2013 by lollipop-designs

I thought I’d do something a little different and do a word with a pop art styled background and a street art themed word.  To be honest, it made me wish I had an airbrushing kit to use.  But I eventually got it done by handpainting all of it except for the outlining, where I used Molotow Paint Markers (the best art markers in the world!!! 😀 )

Anyway, I hope you like it and to show the process from the beginning to the end, I’ve attached all of the pics so one can see the stages.  For me, the most frustrating part is waiting for the paint to dry.   Plus I paint from the right hand side of a canvas as I’m left handed, otherwise I end up smudging everything that I’ve just done.  *Sigh*  I guess it’s the same for a right hander.  Ah, the joys of painting huh!

Friendly Fish in the Aquarium painting now on ETSY

Posted in Hand painted Children's Art - My Painting, Kids with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 22, 2013 by lollipop-designs

This painting is made-to-order due to people being given the option to choose different canvas sizes (therefore, different prices).  I love looking at tropical fish in fish tanks with their brightly coloured coral reef, probably because it reminds me of home (having grown up living next door to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia).

Looking at this painting makes me happy.  I think it gives me a nice dose of colour therapy.

I hope you like it xo

I’m finally on ETSY!

Posted in Kids with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 14, 2013 by lollipop-designs

It’s taken a while (well, since November, last year), but I have finally finished enough designs/paintings to put up on ETSY at last.  I’m still adding the rest of the paintings on there as I finish each description.  I think the longest part was using the Australia Post parcel calculator online to get prices on Air Mail etc (almost had a heart attack a few times looking at the prices, yikes!).  I guess that’s what happens when you live on a giant island in the southern hemisphere bordering the Pacific Ocean. *winks*
