Changes to my Ebay Account!

Hello Everyone! I am going to explain what some of you are wondering about and emailing me about! Just last Friday, Ebay called me and told me they were suspending me. I was in SHOCK! The reson they gave me that they removed 2 of my listings in the wrong category, and so they got stricter and had zero tolerance for miscategorized items!!!

Can you believe this? Almost 10 years of work. PLEASE FOLKS! If you decide your painting would go well in the FOOD category don't do it! Or perhaps in cars motors section because you painted a retro car DON'T DO IT! They will shut you down.

NOW... thank goodness I had a backup account. It is under beautytools4u . All my latest works available are listed there and linked to that account. For now, I am operating all the same and on ETSY as well.

Ebay is killing the Art Market. Why are they so hateful towards us? Because most artists participated in the boycott a while ago? Another note...there is an interesting EBAY ART MOB, where artists who don't like the competition BLAB to Ebay security and Ebay just removes listings with a blindfold.

This is my first RANTING on my blog which I wanted to keep strictly art postings and about art. This is an exception!
Any feedback is welcome.

*Night painting

This was a a great session. My speciality is portraits and I have been doing still lives, landscapes, desserts, marbles and very little portraits. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! I am getting back on track with figurative series so this was a push for me. I particularly enjoy the lazy eye the model has. Her eyes are incredible in real life. They are green and have black spots all around. So alien! Look for huge portraits of this model in my official website coming soon!

This was a quick study I did of the self-portrait of famous painter Odd Nerdrum, famous living master from the Netherlands. It came out fresh and juicy! Love the flesh tones in this one! His work is impossible to buy! Museums and very wealthy patrons can reserve a piece. I love some of his smaller works and so did this little study. Eventually I will do more. This is your chance to own a painting by me, with Odd Nerdrum as a theme. Enjoy! If this was an actual Odd Nerdrum, it would be sold for over $100,000 for this exact size!

This was a fun piece! I love the Smallville Series I am working on. This is a screen accurate (actual barn and house on the set), painting of the land, barn and house in which our superhero lives and works. I love the way the famous Clark Kent aka Superman Hero lives on a beautiful farm with an amazing barn house for a private hang out. Horses, the green outdoors! What more can you want out of life? Still chasing the dream... through my art that is. This would make my all time favorite Studio to paint and create works in. Enjoy!
