Art in Iowa

Today I am so excited - the artistic ideas are just boiling over in my head, and I am going to spend my afternoon taking pictures of my artwork, jewelry, etc. to list online for sale. I have been researching pricing, and I think I can be competetive. Check out and see the new Cougar I just finished... Carla

Wildlife and Nature Art in Iowa - tractors too?

Well, I am almost finished with the cougar drawing.... it is turning out better than I thought it would! I am trying to generate some sales thru ebay, and, but with gas prices soaring, people are not buying art. AND, the local news here in Eastern Iowa said that Iowa ranks 45th of the 50 states in art purchasing. In the last year that I have been selling my artwork, I have NEVER sold art to anyone in Iowa. Interesting. Maybe if I do a drawing of old John Deere tractors, I will get noticed here. That may be interesting to try... I usually do wildlife / nature pencil drawings... maybe I should try doing a watercolor? We'll see ! Have a great weekend!

I am so excited today... I have been working (slowly but surely) on my new drawing, a cougar, and he is turning out to look AWESOME! His eyes just burn right through you. I am so excited to finish him and get some prints made so I can upload him online. I wonder what I should name him? I always have trouble coming up with interesting names. Oh well, it isn't really that important. Dont forget to check out my artwork on , search my name on eBay and, and Later! Carla
