The Irish Busker painting a day daily painting for ebay

“The Irish Busker” 8″x10″ oil on canvas

I came across this delightfully eccentric looking Irish busker in Galway, Ireland in September. I just had to take a picture. I finished painting him in one sitting while attending my table at the above mentioned Arts and Crafts Fair.
Oh yeah, bye the way…I went to Europe…for a month…ahem:) I forgot to mention it. I guess I was worried if I started to write about that trip, I wouldn’t be able to stop. I saw sooooo much! The Uffizzi, the “real” David, by Michelangelo…I climbed the Leaning Tower of Pisa, I went for a Gondola ride in Venice, I saw Newgrange in Ireland, and Stonehenge in England…so much! If you want to see some Europe photos feel welcome to check out my Facebook album at: my facebook page.
Anyways, this painting is now for sale on ebay at a very special reduced starting bid, just for you christmas shoppers:) If you want to bid click on my ebay link in the scrolling gallery when the pic comes up. (My hubby is selling a whole bunch of music equipment too, if you’re interested.) Happy Bidding!

Arts and Crafts Fairs


My table at the local Arts and Crafts fair

I’m fairly certain I’ve blogged about Arts and Crafts fairs before, probably last year around this time…but I’m doing it again. The reason is that it is one of the best ways to get local exposure for your art, and in these times of economic crappiness, make a few easy bucks. All I had to do was sit there and chat with the locals about my art, see my friends, along with spending a few hours cutting and pasting and printing to make greeting cards…tough work, eh? And I made an easy $20 an hour for my time…see? I also got a commission and two people so far wanting art lessons. In my opinion, getting you and your art out in the public, in whatever way possible, is the number one best way to sell yourself and your art, and it’s fun!
