July 2018 Newsletter

July 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.


July Plans:

Last month’s theme was “Space” since I had a bunch of requests for some space-themed paintings (and a few commissioned pieces!).  This month, I’m choosing a suggestion from a few of my followers – “Castles” – for this month!

Last Month’s Artwork:

Here are all the outer space paintings I’ve painted this past month.  I wanted to make sure I painted more galaxies this month since I usually paint a lot of nebulae, but I did a lot of both.  The three large 30×30″ paintings were commissioned (by the same person) and looked enormous and amazing on my wall before I had to send them off.  Enjoy!

And the mini-paintings:

I also caught up on some Art-o-Mat pieces – both spacescapes AND forests!

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 – Butterfly Nebula
  2. Oil Painting Timelapse – Tadpole Nebula

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!  (A few paintings from last month have already been claimed before they were put up on Etsy!)

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, July 6th.  Let me know your favorite of these for a chance to win it!  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 winners on Saturday.  Good luck and thanks for watching! 🙂
