Canvases for sale!

It is time to reveal something I have been working on "in my spare time"! New Believe canvases. I hope to do lots of them, as well as some custom orders and put them in my Etsy shop! For now, let me show you a few that are complete. This little lady is tiny (about 7x9 or 8x10?!) and very textural. There is black and white houndstooth paper in the background. I love it. It has no home.
And just when I was telling someone how to turn their pics around prior to posting them, I failed to do so! Anyhoo, just turn your head to the side. I think this may be a personal fave! I like the long rectangular shape. Lots and lots of texture. It, too, is HOMELESS!!
This one was commissioned by someone at Shake 4 Jake this year. It is going to a worthy family here in West Monroe.
This little beauty is pink and black and just wants someone to love her! Will you be the one to give her a home? (Cue Sarah McLachlan!)
This one is tiny too. You can't really get the impact of this one. There is metallic silver paint on this one. I think it is pretty cool. and if that doesnt' make you want to take it home...
This will!
I'm shameless!!
This one belongs to Clayton, Paula's son. We took inventory of his blank walls, and since that didnt' take much time at all, we then just had to pick coordinating colors. Do you like it, PauPau?!
Oh, this is headed to Alabama for Elizabeth. You said use my imagination!

with the only "criteria" being pink and brown... so... hope you like it.
as for Will, here is his B Ball!
I took a few close ups to show you the crackle paint. I like how I have had the opportunity to try all kinds of new techniques. Love this one!
and instead of "believe", I went with this....
But I worked BELIEVE in nice and big into their mom's!
This one is heavily gooky and so rich!!
I did lots of shadows and lots and lots of layers! Do you like it?!
I got Todd the Bod to hold it to show you scale! And to show you how badly he needs a haircut!
Chief, we went to Pac N Mail today, and they said to mail that would be $100!! I said, ummm, NO! So, I may have to drive this over to ya in Alabama! Working on Plan B!!

Thank goodness, these are going to a happy home right here in West Monroe! Brothers, in fact!
I love this one. It has no home either. It is $60 because it is a little bigger than the others. The smaller ones are $35. This is for those of you who asked in the Q & A about when they would be available. Well, here are a few.
Jessi's kid, Kaitlyn, has laid claim to this one. Actually, it was a custom order for her new room! This seems to be popular with the teens these days! I bet I will be making lots of these!
As for these, well, this little boy decided today that he would rather have hunting stuff in his new room, so if you love this one, it could be yours! His mom is looking for a buyer so we can re-do his!
and thankfully, his brother is happy as punch to have a teal baseball in his room. Thank the LORD!
Alrighty, if you saw any little orphan painting and think you need to have it, let me know. mgroves11@comcast.net Same is true for a custom piece! There are more in the works, so stay tuned.

I NEED one too!!! I will e-mail you a picture of the nursery bedding and you can just use your imagination with the colors and designs! These are AWESOME, but who would expect less from you???

I love the pink one with the black swirly, the one that Ellie is holding and the one that is silverish with the big red heart and angel wings. (I think it is the $60 dollar one.) They are all beautiful.

I'd by anything on this earth if Ellie was holding with that sweet, innocent look on her precious face.

Those are beautiful, Mo!

I want the one with the red balls on green back ground. I love it. email me the cost and I will pick it up my self. You do a fabulous job on your painting.

Christy said...

Mo ~ I definitely want one, too. Are you going to post these on Etsy? I may be interested in getting one custom made...probably something a little bigger than the small ones but not quite as big as the really big one Todd is holding. Any idea on other sizes, price and shipping? Your work is amazing!

Chattin' with the Chief said...

LOVEEEEEEEEEEEE the canvases! If I give you my UPS account number, can they be shipped in a big box via UPS? I will email you about possibilities.

Can't wait to hang the ones in the kids rooms, but definitely cannot wait for Christmas to hang my beautiful believe!!!!

Thanks a bunch!

I don't know how to pick just one. I'm trying to think of how many I could hang in my house. Yikes! I love them all! You are incredibly talented! Is there anything you can't do?

Susan said...

Mo:
Girl, your talent is ENDLESS! I love them all and wish I could afford them! I also loved, loved, loved, baby girl's rings in her topless model shoot photo! Just too adorable! I will mostly definately be checking out the Etsy shop!
