I Finally Set Up An Etsy Store

I will now be offering all my Original Watercolors for sale.
They will come unmatted  and with no frame for you to finish them just the way you like.
I am not asking what others do for their work because I do not need to.
If you like one enough to purchase I will get it out into the mail asap.  I will also offer free shipping within the USA.  After a few pieces get shipped Internationally I will get a better idea on what costs are.  If you have an Etsy store let me know so I can follow you.

I set it up last night and just have to pieces there but I will add all others in time.  They are pieces of me I hate to keep in a dark bag never seeing the light of day.  I love creating so the store will be tough as all my others I have do everything for you.  Prints from Original Artwork will be available at my other shops but this one is for Signed Originals.  I may if time permits sell a few baby items there as well as custom jewelry but that will be once the Watercolors are uploaded onto the site.  Thanks for always cheering me on you are such a great support group.

  • Background.  You can use props, a backdrop…
