Etsy Open!



I have been intending to reopen my Etsy shop and finally have done so.  I will have to put a link on my side bar if I can figure out how, but until then, you can find it here:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/Laughingdogarts
I hope that link works.

This piece I am showing today is not in my Etsy, I am not sure if it is finished or not.  I have wanted to create some art pieces inspired by lyrics to songs by Greg Brown and this is the first one that I am satisfied enough with to show you.  The song is titled Sleeper, you can Google the lyrics if you want to know more.  The lyric on this piece reads: "You move through my dreams like a trout moves through a pool"

Here it is earlier in the process.  It measures about  12"X8".

Snowing here today.  I hope you all are keeping cozy and warm.

Be well.

Hello Jan!
I'm back and trying to catch up on all I've missed.
Congratulations on opening your Etsy Shop. I will visit often!!
First, I must say Grace is a cutie! I am feeling bad for her. I hope the others will accept her soon. Keep us posted, please.
Your gifts are beautiful. The hearts are stunning and Corrine's bottle is a WOW! How nice that all these girls sent you treasures.
It is nice to be back. I missed you.

Jan, I love how this piece turned out!
The words do look like they are floating along in the water.
Glad you got Esty re-opened. Lazy girl here is still *thinking*....which means not doing a thing!
I think you can get a widget that shows you items for sale; I've seen it on other blogs. If I find one I'll e-mail you a link.

XXOO~~♥
Anne.....awaiting more ice and snow....

Hi Jan, just hearing the song sleeper and thank you for linking the lyrics, so I can get a little bit more than only the melody. This is a kind of sentimental music for me which is for my ears really american music. Now I hear another one, full of atmosphere, moody quicker than the one before. Folsom..
When looking at your knew fabric picture it remember me that we are just now in the time of Pisces, this time has also to do a lot with dreams Neptun is the ruler of it and it goes into the realms of the psyche and dreams or longings. So I can see in your work a time quality of the year, funny coincidence!
Big hug from your friend over the sea! Anja

Martha Bright said...

Very nice, Jan, and a great idea to do a piece inspired by a song. I once tried to paint something inspired by Christine Vega's Solitude Standing but I didn't get very far. A fiber piece might work better.

Martha Bright said...

Suzanne Vega, sorry... I am getting old and dumb.

*Jan, I'm sorry that you have been feeling a little "down". It creeps up on all of us now and then. You need a big dose of SPRING to cheer you up. In the meantime, I'm sending you a big loving hug! Glad the quote helped you feel better. ♥
