The paintings that I have for sale on ebay were completed weeks or even months ago. With oils, I have to wait quite a bit before I can list them for sale. My studio has rows of shelves that I use for viewing and drying wet paintings. Once I complete one of these little paintings, I put it on the shelf to dry (for at least 4-5 weeks). Next I apply a damar retouch varnish to seal it and then it's back to the shelf again. After that's dry, I photograph it and download the photo into a template. Eventually, I get it on ebay for YOU to give it a new home. I call these paintings my "little jewels". I just love the way they look when I put them in one of my favorite gilded frames. I hate to say it, but sometimes I have a hard time letting them go. I hope that each of you that have one of my "little jewels" loves it as much as I love painting them.
