Marsh in the Mountains...

Original painting by Tracey (me)

Watercolor,  5 x 13.5" W  100% archival cotton paper.

All of my paintings are originals (Not prints)  and painted by myself (Tracey Connor) They make great one-of-a-kind gifts and are easily framed with commercial picture frames (TJ Maxx and Hobby Lobby is a great resource for them!)                              ♦ I take pics in a few lighting situations but keep in mind, individual monitor settings can make colors vary slightly.

For my Watercolors, I use a 100% cotton, heavy weight archival paper. (meaning it's acid free and will not yellow over time)    I leave a border on most but that can be covered up with a mat if you prefer. I do prefer the look of it though. I ship them sandwiched between carboard so it keeps them nice and flat and protects all edges. It also gives me a way to recycle my boxes. A win win!

For my Oil paintings, I prefer oil on both canvas or board (wood). I primarily use canvas wrapped wood blocks so they can be hung without the need for framing or any special tools since they're smallera and lighter weight. A small nail or even a push pin in a solid wall will do it!  I love the dimensional effect this gives as they are painted on all 4 sides as well. I love that they look good alone or even in groups for a fun variety of artwork without taking up too much space. They are all signed (usually on the back... I find the signature is a bit of an distraction on smaller paintings.) These make great gifts or even a treat for yourself! Because everyone should have art in their lives. ♥

A bit about me...                                                                                                                                                                            As with all of my work, I am self-taught. Glass, clay silversmithing, sewing and painting. Like many. it's just something I was born with. The desire to make stuff. I've been doing it since my motor skills allowed. I just see something that sparks an idea (and that could be anything...a color combo, a shape, my cats, a dream, a song, anything.) and after I do my mental assessment, I try it. I can look at something, get an idea, ask myself  "Can I make that? How? What do I need? Do I already have the supplies? Would it take a long time to make it?  Would I like to do it? And lastly, "Would I be able to sell it"?  And if all or most of these are a YES, I give it a whirl. This is a super fast, 30 second thought process. Maybe less. Sometimes I absolutely love it. Sometimes,well, not so much. The stuff in the "Love" column will be practiced until I get the hang of it and sold right on here. Some of the things in the "not so much" category are things like stained glass. (hated it. Everything about it.)  Acrylic pour painting (hated it...too messy), knitting  (hated it but wanted to love it...just takes way too long) This does not mean what I made was awful (although somtimes it was).  It just means I didn't enjoy it. At all.  But I can absolutely appreciate the work that goes into it and the skill and talent that it takes to create these things. (nothing makes you appreciate art like trying to do it yourself!) But the point I'm trying to make is that I do try lots of stuff and also fail! But that's how we learn. That's how we know what doesn't work. Be patient with yourself. And don't beat yourself up if something isn't "perfect". You'll get better. And keep the "failures"! They allow you to look back and see how far you've come! Many people think they can't do something all because they haven't tried. And who knows...maybe you've got a hidden talent in there! Everyone is great at something. They just need to discover what that thing is. And trying any art is a great place to start!
