THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!

Sorry I haven't bin around.
After I got better from the flue
I started looking for a job ( no luck ).
I do work at a flower shop but
that is only ones or twice a month
( not enough to pay the rent)
The job market is super hard at the moment and
I know it is going to get worst.
I try-ed some fast food places but
even they weren't hiring.
so I bib what every one who has looked for a job
at this time has done at one time or another ,
I got super depress.
during that time I would get happy messages
from people I know from the Internet.
some were just concern about me
others were just letting me know that they like my art work.
Yesterday I was just having a really bad day ,
two interviews were canceled because they hired someone else .
out of the blue I got a thank you e-mail
from someone I talk to some time back.
it really brought a smile to my face.
this is her blog ( it has a great deal of info )
the hand made gift guide .
I want to thank every one that has encourage me :)

I will be back soon.
Thank you

It is finish and listed :)

This started as a black and white photo of one of my Halloween ornaments.
I transfer the photo to osnaburg fabric.
This is not an easy proses and it takes time and patient.
The piece was then hand colored using Acrylics paints, Watercolors, Artist Color pencils and some stains.
This is a one of a kind giclee / mixed media art work .
The art comes signed and dated.
The canvas measurements are 8" inches by 10" inches .
The wrapped canvas has staple-free edges perfect for frame less display.
The watermark is not on the art work.
