PINK SATURDAY - CANVASES

I'm starting off my Pink Saturday post with an introduction to a brilliant blog I just found tonight: The Old Glory Company.

If you are a fan of primitive art, you'll love this company, which has patterns for just about anything you can imagine including altered book assemblages like the one above. They even provide the printable images and text!

Now for my own part of the post:
Here are some of the things I put in the gallery show: 4 canvases from my Kitchen collection, 16inches square if I remember (I should have measured them) which are acrylics, mixed media etc. I'm hoping they look edible! They were certainly a lot of fun to do.

Two Cupcakes
Cake
Tea Time
Wish me luck! If these don't sell, they're going on to my Etsy site.

Go to Beverly's site - How Sweet the Sound - to see the rest of the Pink Saturday posts! Happy PS everyone - oh, and happy Thanksgiving for everyone in the USA.

    Susie, I'm sure you'll sell it. It's darling and fun! Love the spoon on the one with the cup.

    Happy Pink Saturday from one Pinky who missed the boat this week. I didn't get my post done. Oops! ;-)

    I'm so happy you survived the preparations for the show. Of course, best of luck! However, I think they are all so wonderful! I'd buy them, if I could buy anything at all. :-)

    Yes, the twinklies are crashing my computer. I wasn't aware that Playlist actually crashed your computer. It is nice to know, and to know the reason. Thanks for that explanation. I was wondering how it all fit together.

    Hope you are somewhat rested and have had a wonderful Pink Saturday!

  15. Oh yeah, they look good enough to make me want a cup of tea. I especially like the rosebuds with blue toile on the top half of the painting. I wish you luck! I also like the artwork by "Old Glory" was it? Happy Pink Saturday, Susie~

    The old glory company from VA sells on ebay. The original owner sold this company last year and reopened a new one. There are new designs every year and the talent is perfect. She does such great work. The new owner is very much in touch with the first one. I have no idea if they are friends or not.
    What you have created is also perfect and I don't think you will have any trouble selling them. I love your art, it's beautiful, Happy Pink Saturday, Char

    LOVE Them!!! Thanks for visiting me. I am still sucked into Scrabble. The computer version is kicking my booty. Those 2 letter words are killing me as well. The computer scored 50 something off 2 two letter words. Have a wonderful week!
