OSWOA Anniversary

It was one year ago today that the OSWOA art movement was born. Read on for some more info on OSWOA. The wonderful write up below is credited to the OSWOA founder Dustie Meades.

This is a special and highly collectable 1st ANNIVERSARY OSWOA ARTWORK! To learn more about the OSWOA art format, and why this work is so special, read on...EXACTLY ONE YEAR AGO TODAY a new art format was launched on Ebay by over 60 very talented artists!

A format that brought original artworks to collectors everywhere, artworks that did not have to be framed to be appreciated, and yet could easly be framed if the collector so wished. Artworks that could be kept in attractive photo albums to be shared with friends and family, beautiful artworks, all original and all from the heart of talented artists world wide!

As an OSWOA artist I'm happy to report that the OSWOA format is alive and well on this, it's 1st Anniversary. It is known as OSWOA, An acronym for ORIGINAL SMALL WORKS OF ART, and collectors far and wide have begun collecting these charming small works.Collectors can bid on an OSWOA knowing that they are going to be originals (There's no such thing as an OSWOA print), that just the right size to fit into a 4 x 6 photo album sleeve for easy collecting, and that they are a wonderful and true representitive of that artists talents!

In the last year OSWOAs have been sold by artists and collected by art lovers in the US, Canada, England, Wales, Germany, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia and Venezuala! A year ago if you had done a search of OSWOA in Google, you would have gotten back 11 references, just a handful of sites, most in a different language. Today, do a search of OSWOA in Google, and there are 66,100 references and NEARLY ALL PERTAIN TO ORIGINAL SMALL WORKS OF ART - OSWOA!

Many wonderful works of art that never existed in the world before, exist now because of OSWOA and many talented artists are becoming more well known thanks to OSWOA! OSWOA is proving to be a wonderful way for art lovers to collect affordable original artworks and a wonderful way for artists to share their talents with the world now and far into the future!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY OSWOA....AND MAY THERE BE MANY MORE TO COME! SEARCH EBAY FOR OSWOA 1 TO FIND MORE 1ST ANNIVERSARY OSWOA ARTWORKS! Each will be marked on the back, just as this work is, to commerate the one year anniversary of this exciting collectable art format!

The OSWOA artists were tasked to create an OSWOA representing the 'First' of something. I procrastinated as usual and quickly did this watercolor yesterday called 'First Steps'.

Memories and Halloween art

I was inspired by May another blogger here. You can check out her blog from my favorite links! She has been sharing memories and that sounded like a good idea.

For those of you who hate dentists and people messing with your teeth you may not want to proceed. I was one of those kids that had to keep wiggling my teeth when they were loose. It was a tell tale sign that one was ready to come out. I hated going to visit my great grandmother when I had a loose tooth because there was the off chance that my great aunt would be there. If she noticed that I had a loose tooth, she was, for some reason, required to take care of it. To her that meant tie a string to my tooth and the other end to a door knob. She then proceeded to slam the door, thus yanking out the tooth whether it was actually ready or not. Now I know why I hate dentists so.

Now on to some art talk. I have been adding lots of new Halloween designs to my cafepress store using some of my ACEO's (Art cards, Editions and Originals: 2.5" X 3.5" in size) and my OSWOAS (4 X 6 in size). You can see a sample to the left.
Check them out at: under holidays and occasions.
