Another one for the boys!


Here's another watercolor for the boys! I don't think I will ever stop wanting to paint flowers- I'm such a girl :), but I'm having fun venturing into boy land with tractors and cars!  Its a whole new exciting thing and I'm seriously thinking of making prints of this one to sell in my etsy shop.  I just have to figure out how and where to make prints.

Yep, there is a huge learning curve when it comes to trying to sell art.  I haven't sold anything yet- the competition on etsy is fierce-  but I'm just getting started.  Thanks for all the sweet and encouraging comments on my work.  It really keeps me going!

  1. Cool! I really like both this one and the cars. They will look so cute in Porter's room (if that's where you're going to put them)! I would think that the wider variety of styles you have on etsy, the better chance you would have of selling something.

  2. Tractors! You can't go wrong with that!
    Don't give up with Etsy. It is hard to stand out, but once you get a good base, you'll do fine. Did you join any of the Etsy teams? They'll help give you more exposure.

  3. Nice work, I like your style. I have been eyeing a vintage mustang on my street to paint, love the portrait of Porter.

  4. Very cool tractor...go to a local graphic design shop and they can help you with prints, cards, whatever you need and advice....that's what they do, it's a good start if you're not familiar with all the different ways you can market your art. Best of luck to you, I envy you your talent with the watercolor. I hope to see you regularly in Art Blogs by Etsy Artists and I'll be following your blog. Take care, Pam

  5. Bit late with my comment, but I saw this in the youmightalsobeinterested block below today's post.
    How about printing it on fabric? I've read about custom printed fabric from Spoonflower. This is so cute, it could be made into some fun boy's clothing, or a little backpack or something. Love your work.
