April 2018 Newsletter

April Newsletter
Hello everyone!  The monthly newsletter is here!  Included in each monthly update is art that I’ve completed in the past month, links to videos that I’ve created (timelapses or instructional videos) this month, art that I’ve put up for sale and that which will be going up for sale shortly, a description of the next monthly raffle and how to enter (it’s at the bottom if you’re antsy!), and any other artsy news.

If you like to see my work as it comes out or as I’m working on it, I post almost-daily on Facebook, Minds, Instagram, and Gab, and my videos will also be posted on my Youtube channel.  My original work is currently for sale on Etsy.

Thanks as always for subscribing and feel free to leave a comment or send me a message if you have any questions or just want to say something; I will do my best to answer.


April Plans:

Last month’s theme was “Seacreatures,” because my shop was getting low on seacreatures, and from the looks of it, I might even have to paint more seacreatures later this year!  In the meantime, though, this month’s theme is something brand-new: “Dinosaurs”!  Get ready for dino-month 😀

Last Month’s Artwork:

Here are all the paintings I’ve done this month except for a few gifts which I can’t show off quite yet.  Lots of beautiful seacreatures!  I had a lot of ideas for this month and wasn’t able to get to all of them, but I was happy to try out a few new things as well with both subject and technique – let me know which one(s) are your favorites! 🙂


Last Month’s Videos:

My full videos (and a few real-time clips!) are available on YouTube and Facebook, and short clips of the full videos and real-time videos are also available on Instagram.
Full videos from this month:

  1. Oil Painting Timelapse – It Rises
  2. Oil Painting Timelapse – Crabby
  3. Oil Painting Timelapse – Lime

Artwork for Sale:

If you’re interested in buying any of my original pieces, they will often be available on my Etsy site a few weeks after they’ve been painted – I will now be posting new items every Thursday.  If there is a piece that catches your eye that has not yet been put up for sale (such as any of the artwork posted in “last month’s artwork” above), feel free to send me a message and I will be happy to let you know what the price will be and you can have the chance to claim the painting before I put it up for sale officially!

Of the artwork shown above, the first few are already listed in my store, 3 more will be listed tomorrow, and I’m going to bring as many as I can (that are dry enough) to the Fredericksburg Arts & Crafts Fair on April 7th and 8th, so stop by the Fredericksburg Expo Center (in Fredericksburg, Virginia), if you’d like to see my art (and me!) in person 🙂


Upcoming Raffle:

Every first Friday of every month, I will have a raffle, which you can enter to win something for free!  This month’s raffle will be on Friday, April 6th.  Let me know your favorite of these for a chance to win one!  All you need to do to enter is to comment or send me a message on any of my social media posts, on my website, or directly to my email address (scenesbycolleen@gmail.com).  I will check everything before deciding the winner on Saturday.  Good luck and thanks for watching! 🙂
