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 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.


There is still so much to add, but I’ve added a couple of hundred new items this week, with 4 new previously unreleased images.

Fans of the rural, rustic, and natural images will love these.

There are new black & white floral photos:

New natural texture photos:

New charcoal sketches of cute critters:

And charcoal sketches of rural scenery:

All artfully reproduced and printed on a wide range of products, including phone cases, tshirts, collectors’ plates, household goods, ornaments, and more!
Happy shopping!

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.


Some of my readers and zazzle followers may have noticed that the prices in the soulbearing zazzle shop did not increase at the end of December as planned.

This is because, as a gift of appreciation for my promoters and customers, I have decided to leave the current merchandise at its current price. Newer merchandise will be introduced at the normal prices, but previous listings will remain at the reduced price. Thank you all for your support, and have a great 2013!! :)


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!!  :-)


When I found this product on zazzle.com along with the snowflake shape, I thought to myself… Some of my symmetrical designs would look very cool on those.

And I was right, they do look very cool, in fabulous chilly colours and icy lines.  Another fab bonus is that you can turn any of them sideways to see a different pattern, so it’s like having 2 designs in one.

The original art design is made from a relief print of pine needles, which was then digitally made into a symmetrical “kaleidoscope” design. And, did I mention it looks very cool on the snowflakes?  Reusable, too, up to 100 times, so you can enjoy them year after year!!

They also look fab with this symmetrical design, made from an original photo of snow-covered tree branches.

While you’re browsing, have a look at the original art paintings currently for sale, and the art and photography printed gifts!


Winters here are usually too mild for snow; typically, winter is just cold and wet. But, it does snow sometimes, and since these are rare opportunities, I’m quick to grab a camera and snap photos of the snow-covered landscapes.  I am not a fan of “cold and wet”, but there is something magical about snow.

Here are a few of my fave winter snow photos from the past few years.  These images and more are available on all sorts of merchandise in the Soulbearing zazzle shop, or for original art and real 4 leaf clovers, visit soulbearing.com:


My floral photography and art images have been very popular.  Because of the abstract quality of the lines, textures, and colours of flowers, they are among my favorite things to photograph– and hundreds of new products printed with my flower photos and paintings have been added to the Soulbearing zazzle shop. Here are just a few of my faves.   As difficult as it was, I managed to narrow my original choices (my original selection was “all of them”)  down to… a bunch:


a place in the cosmos, by s.lynnette

Abstract expressionist painting in layers of reds, violets, and yellows, against deep blues and black. Original fine art painting by S.Lynnette.

This one hasn’t been posted on the “art for sale” page yet, but you can already order prints of it in the Soulbearing zazzle shop.  If someone doesn’t claim the original painting before it’s posted at soulbearing.com, it will be available for purchase there in a couple of days.

Meanwhile, doesn’t it look great on this phone case??
