One Fine Day – wip1

24 x 30 – Acrylic on wood

I’ve finally picked the next painting I want to do! (I have so many sketches now that sometimes I get overwhelmed – lol.) It’s still fall, although the air has a bite to it and there was a dusting of snow on the ground this morning. This painting will be of the warm fall days where the sun chases the frost, leaves crackle underfoot and the colours are rich and warm.

2016 Calendar

I have made two print-on-demand calendars for 2016! :)

budan, calendar, art, fineart, painting, landscape

The first one is through…/mandy-…/calendar/product-22331648.html

The lulu calendar is $18.00usd plus shipping, measures 8.5 x 11 inches closed and 11 x 17 open and is spiral bound. The paper is glossy and of a medium weight. It has major holidays listed and overall I am pretty pleased with it.

The second is through redBubble:

The redBubble calendar is $25.00usd plus shipping, measures 11.5 x 16.5 inches and is also spiral bound but at the top instead of in the middle. The paper is satin (a mix of gloss and matte) and of a heavier weight than the lulu calendar. There are no holidays listed – it’s just not an option when building. I think I like this calendar better than the lulu one, it seems to be a higher quality product and the layout and binding while somewhat unconventional works really well.
