I’ve added a few pencil drawings to eBay.. I know! Finally, right?!

I apologize for the wait, but I think bidders will be pleased that the starting bid is under $25 for each of 5 original pencil sketches, and the “Buy It Now” price is just $75 each.

AND….

10% of proceeds will be donated to Annabelle’s Second Chance Pit Bull Rescue.

You can view the new listings here.

Update: I know, I know.. It’s been more than a “couple” of days!  Many humble apologies for keeping you waiting!  The following auction listings will be posted tomorrow!  (That’s November 11.)  Thank you for your patience. ❤

 

In the next couple of days, I will be posting some drawings on eBay.  Normally, if someone doesn’t claim them before the sealant is dry, I post paintings and drawings for sale on the main website.  But, since I originally started off selling some on eBay years ago, I thought it’d be a nice bit of nostalgia to list them that way again.   And, it’s a way of saying “thank you” to my supporters.   The starting bids will be affordable, and I have not done a lot of publicizing, so there’s a chance to get some deals!

Each drawing is in ebony pencil, on 9×12 sketch paper with smudge resistant clear coat.

Here’s a preview of some of the listings– the “S.Lynnette” watermarks are not part of the drawings.  🙂

The holidays are coming!  And I have reduced prices on most of the items in my Zazzle store, just in time!

 

And, those art auctions I mentioned several days ago are on the way.  I’ve finished a few new sketches, and will be listing them for auction on eBay with low starting bids.  Those will be posted in the next couple of days, and of course I will post a blog update when I list them!  It’s my way of saying “thank you” to the clients and customers who have supported me, and it’s how I pay for website maintenance, too, so don’t be bashful about bidding high! 😀

And, since most of us can always use a little luck, I will also be listing a few lucky clovers for auction at reduced prices, even though they are already very affordable and available on the main website at soulbearing.com.  Happy shopping!

When I first started offering original paintings and drawings online, I started by listing them on eBay with very affordable starting bids.  As the quality of and demand for an artist’s work increases, the price usually increases, too.  Often, the result is that the original works become unattainable for many.  This is one of the reasons I offer prints of some of my work in a store on Zazzle.

But, I’ve decided to go a step further.

The plan for the next couple of days is to finish several drawings, which will then be auctioned on eBay with very reasonable starting bids.

I’ll post the link in a new entry on this blog when the listings are open for bids.  It should be just a few days.

Proceeds will go toward keeping the soulbearing.com website running, and toward paying off my student loans. 🙂

Many humble thanks to all my clients and customers– past, present, and future!

 

 

 


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!!

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.

And you can find links to it all at soulbearing.com, which conveniently accepts PayPal. So, show your love, get great merchandise and art, and feed an artist this holiday season.

Happy shopping!!  🙂


The tag and description updates throughout the soulbearing zazzle store still aren’t quite finished, but are close enough that I decided it was time to add more new goodies for my zazzle shoppers and promoters.

So, I brewed a pot of coffee and got to work on it, and there are now nearly 2000 new products, using some of the most popular and favorite images and designs. With hundreds of images available on dozens of products, there are now almost 6000 products in the soulbearing shop, just in time for the holidays!!

I added all sorts of goodies, from necklace pendants to kitchen towels, plates, and coasters to electronics cases and skins. Even clocks, ornaments, playing cards, and more!!

As an added bonus, I have reduced my own royalty rates (that’s the small percentage I get from each sale)  through 11/20, in order to offer shoppers lower prices before the holidays– but this reduction is temporary. (We artists have to eat too, ya know!)

And while you’re browsing, visit soulbearing.com to see the original art listings, and check out the current eBay auctions too!!

Happy shopping!!

“The mission of Transitions Family Violence Services is to build safe and healthy families on the Virginia Peninsula. The agency assists adult and child victims through the provision of shelter, counseling and advocacy services. We work to increase awareness of domestic violence and provide opportunities for community members to participate in our mission.”

 

It is sad to have to say that domestic violence is still so widespread.  But groups like Transitions Family Violence Services are working to change that, through victim support, advocacy, and raising awareness.  So, for the month of November, a percentage of my eBay auctions will be donated to this nonprofit group.
