Tag Archives: four leaf clovers


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!

 


The newest frames are already almost gone!  I am down to the last few, and the frames I just ordered will not arrive for another week or two.  So, if you want these, better hurry!

With St. Patrick’s Day less than a week away, I cannot guarantee they will arrive before the 17th. BUT… anyone who places an order before 3/17 will get a free upgrade to Priority shipping.  That’s right!  For just the standard shipping rate, you get an upgrade to Priority for no additional charge!  And since USPS now advertises that it only takes 2 days, you should have it in time if you order within the next day or 2. (Offer applies only to orders within USA)

Framed 4 Leaf Clovers

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


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.


For this week’s remaining eBay listings, domestic shipping is FREE, while supplies last (and there aren’t many left!!).

Next week, there will be more goodies, but shipping will probably not be free!!

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


As a way of saying “Thank You” to my zazzle shoppers and promoters, I reduced prices in the Soulbearing zazzle shop, and these reduced prices were expiring on November 20th.

But, the response has been great and it just doesn’t feel right ending a “Thank You” sale only 2 days before Thanksgiving. So, the reduced prices will continue for another month. That’s right!! The lower prices will last through December 20th!!

“But doesn’t that mean ending a sale right before Christmas??” Well, yes.. So, make sure you order your favorite things before then, because I haven’t yet decided if I will extend the sale through January or not, but I am leaning toward “not”, because I think most of my holiday shoppers will be finished placing orders online by then… so there.

“What if I don’t celebrate Christmas??”… Don’t worry, you get lower prices until December 20th, too!!

Need a gift and don’t know what to give? I’ve added thousands of new items this month– there are now over 8,500 products in the Soulbearing shop, printed with fabulous photos and art images!!  Here’s a peek at just a few of the latest images/products:

All of the original paintings and drawings shown above have been sold, but you can still have them printed on all sorts of goodies.  And, as always, you can find more original art paintings and real 4 leaf clovers in frames at soulbearing.com.


Four Leaf Clover as a Gay Rights Symbol in Uruguay

Since I find (and sell) so many four leaf clovers, and have for several years, I sometimes search for them online. Sometimes I find something unexpected. Recently, I found this article explaining how the 4 leaf clover, in addition to its traditional symbolism for good luck, might also be the new symbol of equality in Uruguay.


My dear readers, your intrepid artist has had the flu and spent a large portion of the past 3 weeks whimpering and shivering under a pile of blankets, sucking down copious amounts of orange juice and cough syrup. Seriously, this season’s flu is brutal. Don’t catch it. It took weeks to recover, and any orders placed through soulbearing.com and eBay were being handled and shipped by a courageous temporary helper, in order to avoid passing along any germs to my beloved patrons.  But now I’m good as new and the studio has been thoroughly disinfected… and I’ve been busy.

There have been THOUSANDS of new items added to the soulbearing zazzle store; the total number of image/product combinations is now nearing 8,000. And, there is something for virtually everyone, whether you’re a fan of abstract expressionism, symmetrical designs, rural and nature photography, or floral photography.  Find fabulous original designs on household items, skins and cases for electronics, tshirts, accessories, cards and postage, office products, and art prints & posters.

Looking for the real four leaf clovers? Those are still available too!! Thanks to the mild winters here, they grow almost year round, and you can find them in frames at soulbearing.com or in pendants via the eBay auctions.

Also, there are more new paintings on the way, in plenty of time to give your home or office an art makeover for the New Year!! Posters and prints are great, but there is nothing quite like an original painting’s colour and texture.
