Tall Ship and Sci Fi

It's hot hot hot here in Central NY. 90+ and humid. I live in an old house with no central air. Thank God for window air conditioners.

I am a bit of a Sci Fi geek. You can tell from my bio pic if you are familiar with Stargate SG-1. That is me with Michael Shanks (Dr. Daniel Jackson from the show) . Unfortunately, the show is over. Not quite yet to me though since I still have the last couple of shows on DVR to watch. I hear they are going to make straight to DVD movies though to keep the show alive. Yay!!

Back in the real world, I have a new 4 X 6 watercolor. I love tall ships. Unfortunately skies and water are a bitch to paint. This is my attempt titled 'Tall Ship Sunset'.

New Watercolor

I finally got a new painting done. This is again a 4X6 work. I need to do some larger paintings to build a portfolio. I just love working in the smaller formats though.

I hope some of my friends return to give me an opinion on this one. It brings back memories of taking ballet as a girl. I think every girl wants to be a ballerina at some point in her life.
Thought I'd be daring and try a new format for my entry. Until next time...

My other passion!

Garage Sale hunting for Ebay resale is my 'You gotta eat' past time. I just love it. I use the money for art supplies, classes, books and even some clothes, DVD's and such.

Garage saleing can be an addiction! It is so much fun finding an old toy you grew up with that you know sells well on Ebay. I sell mostly collectibles, records and other unique items. I recently found a complete spirograph game from the 60's. These are hard to find complete with the pens and pins. For those that aren't a child of the 60's, spirograph is a drawing toy. You can create cool abstract designs using graphic tools.

I just made a squidoo lens on garage saleing for Ebay. You can find it at http://www.squidoo.com/GarageSale4Ebay/

Ebay is really slow right now though. I stock pile a lot of inventory for winter when there are no garage sales.

I never thougt I would be a garage sale hunter, looking through other people's throw aways. I had exhausted my own inventory for Ebay selling so I had to get more stuff! This is the most fun way to do it. I like to pick each item individually and sell a variety of things.

This does take time away from my painting, but as I said 'You Gotta Eat'!
