I know it’s been a long wait, but there will be new paintings and drawings on the website soon!

And, the newest frames for the four leaf clovers have arrived!  It’s a new style, and I know it will be as popular as the current frame style has been.  The current selection is almost gone, so if you want the current frame style, get them fast!  I will likely discontinue that frame style when it is gone, and there are just a few pieces left.

But, wait! There’s more!

I will also be adding some new designs, photos, and products to the soulbearing store on zazzle! (At the moment of this posting, the zazzle site seems to be undergoing maintenance and the store page will not open, but this should be remedied soon. So if it won’t open for you, try again later.)

I have a few more plans also, but one thing at a time! I’ve kept everyone waiting long enough for more new originals.  The plan is to have it all added within the next couple of weeks– I’ll keep ya posted!

 


After defeating a compatibility issue between my program and the webhost, the latest framed clovers are now posted for sale! Yippee!

And still in plenty of time for St. Patrick’s Day!  You can find them for sale, to purchase for yourself or as gifts, at http://soulbearing.com  There are still a few more changes and updates coming to the website, but since so many people are eager to have these, I wanted to get them posted!

New Framed Four Leaf Clovers

New Framed 4 Leaf Clovers


The framed real 4 leaf clovers and the 4-leaf clover necklaces and keychains on the main soulbearing.com site have been very popular!

Right before the holidays, they were so popular that I was having trouble keeping up with the demand, especially since they are all found growing wild and are not genetically engineered and cultivated en masse.  So, many customers have noticed that when trying to purchase directly from the website, there is an “out of stock” message.  I haven’t actually run out of clovers– I just couldn’t get them in frames fast enough!

That’s about to change.

The new frame styles are just a little different, and there are a few one-of-a-kind framed designs, as well.  Since I am still getting back in the swing of things and have a lot of catching up to do, it will be a couple of days before I can photograph them and post them on the website, but they are on the way!  They’ll be available in plenty of time for St. Patrick’s Day.

It will be a while longer before there are more keychains and necklaces featuring the real lucky clovers, but in the meantime, you can find a variety of items for sale and printed with photos of 4 leaf clovers here.  I know, I know.  They’re prints and not the actual clovers.  But the photos of the clovers still unpicked are lovely, and also very popular.  And, they’ll ship in plenty of time for St. Patrick’s Day, too.


Some readers have noticed it has been quite some time since my last post, and since the website was last updated.  While I’d like to say I was away on some exotic photo shoot or relaxing at an art retreat, the truth is I have been struggling with a severe bout of depression.

When my grandfather passed away a little over 2 years ago, I was able to repress the grief for some time, but then finally the realization came– he is gone.

As a small child, I sat on his lap during church services, drawing on the church bulletin.  He is one of the biggest reasons I eventually chose to study and create art, because those early memories are among the best I have.  Since his passing, most attempts to paint or draw have only reminded me of how much I miss him.  I was on the brink of throwing in the towel, tossing out the art supplies, burning whatever paintings remain, and closing the website, not because I do not want to continue this line of work, but simply because at times it just felt like too much to take on in the midst of depression.

However, my supporters, friends, and clients have been determined to drag me out of my mental muck, and for that I am thankful.  From the friend who reminded me that the portrait of his dog still means so much to him even after more than a decade, to the stranger who ordered some of my ornaments on Zazzle knowing her loved ones will have and cherish them even after she is gone (hopefully many, many years from now), to the customers who ordered lucky clovers to give a boost to their own friends– all of you have helped me to realize… it is not really about me.  It is about leaving the world in better condition than it was in when I arrived, and how my work makes others think and feel.  In other words…  It is about all of you!

So for now, I am putting away my self-pity to make room for more new art & photography, more new additions to the Zazzle store, more auction listings, more 4 leaf clovers, and eventually more “Nonprofit of the Month” posts.  And, the main website should be updated soon, so be sure to check out http://soulbearing.com for the latest art & photography releases and lucky clovers, and for links to order prints of my work from Zazzle.

And, because all of you allow and encourage me to keep doing what I do, you have my eternal gratitude.

Thank You.


Don’t be caught without your green! You can now get a real 4 leaf clover framed for good luck from soulbearing.com!  And be sure to check out the merchandise printed with photos of real 4 leaf clovers, in the soulbearing store on zazzle.com.

Framed 4 Leaf Clovers for Sale, in time for St. Patrick’s Day!


Two new abstract art paintings have been posted at soulbearing.com!!

Unraveling the Unknown is a hypnotic composition of spirals and swirls in reds, yellows, oranges, and blues, ready to hang in your home or office to mesmerize guests and visitors.

The Life of a Spark is a high contrast, action-packed mix of vibrant yellows and blues, with a splash of orange– perfect for lovers of anything intense and unusual.

Both paintings are great for anyone looking to add a unique pop of colour to home or business.

Fans of vibrant colour, motion, and expressionism will love these.  And, no additional charge for shipping!!

Have a peek at the new look in the Soulbearing zazzle shop!!

It’s received a makeover to coordinate with soulbearing.com and this blog.  While soulbearing.com offers fab original fine art and abstract paintings and real 4 leaf clover gifts, the zazzle shop offers hundreds of photos and images artfully printed on dozens of products, from phone cases and necklaces, to posters and canvas prints, for a total of almost 9,000 image/product combinations.  Happy shopping!!  :-)


It’s still a “work in progress”, and is by no means an extensive collection, but it does give visitors and patrons a peek at earlier paintings and drawings which are no longer available for purchase– and it includes a link to current art listings, so patrons don’t miss out on the most recent paintings and drawings.

Here’s one of my faves of the sold paintings:

(And, the paintings on canvas page has been updated, with the most recent painting added!!)


They are unusual and affordable (at just $12 each!), and there are only 20 or so left of these framed clovers– and that may be the last of them in this style (yes, last ever!)  since I haven’t found more frames exactly like these.

Last time these were running low, I was “lucky” and found another crate of identical frames hidden in my art supplies.  That is unlikely to happen this time.  I’ve shopped around, and it looks like I will have to choose another style!  I do find it ironic that after finding so many 4 leaf clovers for so long, I now cannot find the original frame style to go with them.

Of course, if I must, I’ll choose another style next time I order frames, and the new frame style will be fabulous, too. But those will not be available until at least January, and prices will almost certainly be higher.  (I’m doing what I can to keep offering these at affordable prices!)

This means, if you like the framed 4 leaf clovers in these frames and at this price, this could be the last chance to get them this year– maybe the last chance to get them, ever!

First come, first serve, until they’re gone!  (If you happen to miss out, you can still pre-order the latest keychain and necklace pendant style!)

There have been several recent requests for these, so from now through November 24th, customers can pre-order necklaces and keychains containing real 4 leaf clovers. This is a metal pendant measuring approximately 30mm x 50mm, with protective high-gloss “self-healing” epoxy cover. 24-inch necklace is shown, but this can be ordered on keychains too.

Four leaf clover pendants available on necklaces or keychains.

Regular price is $15 each, but if you order by Saturday, you can order them for just $12 each.

Since this is a pre-order, it will take approximately 2 weeks to be available to ship, but will still arrive at USA destinations before Christmas. International orders should still arrive by Christmas, but since international shipments can face a variety of additional delays in transit, delivery by Christmas cannot be promised. We’ll do our very best though.

These sell out rapidly and typically only a small supply is kept on hand, so pre-ordering is the best way to be sure your necklaces or keychains will be available– plus you get a discount!!

Offer ends November 24
