New art for 2013

I am working on so much new art for 2013....
and I am starting with...
"old" art.

These pictures are pictures I did in 1987.
I did a collection of about 10 and have decided
 that I want to
re-do them.

I still have the original I painted them
to hang in the rooms of my own children...
but now
I want to update them
and make them 'new' again.

FairytaleZ 'N FantasieZ is now open.

Before all of the craziness on October
I had begun to put together a new shop...
mainly art for kids' rooms and nurseries.

I thought...wisely, I might add...I would wait
to see what was going on at Etsy
before I put anything 'live' in the new shop.

Instead...I decided to open
on Artfire.

Let's face it though...even with all the changes on Etsy...
which I might add that I'm not exactly
fond of...
it still seems to get more traffic
than the other sites I am trying
at least for my 
Rustic Goth shops. be fair to the other sites...
I've had five years to build a following on Etsy...
back before all the changes...
and the traffic may be coming from the folks'
who favorited my Shop there.

At any rate...I wanted to open similar shops on Etsy
and Artfire...since it now comes down to
SEO rather than renews and relists...
and I am promoting both shops...equally.

Now...we'll see what happens...

but for anyone who is interested in some
'happy' art...
I do have a coupon code for my Etsy Shop...
it is

Use it at check out and receive 25% off your entire order.

I will be listing new items Every Day for the next few weeks.

TopHatter Auctions and CMZ Art

I recently joined TopHatter
having learned about it through Artfire
and sold my 'Alice in Wonderland - Encore' print set in the
"Thanksgiving with Artfire"
auction at Tophatter on Thanksgiving morning.

Because I am new to TopHatter
and will have to establish myself through sales and feedback,
I am only able to schedule one or two auctions per week and
I have already reached my limit.

I will, however, be posting auctions for three Original Small Works of Art,
little acrylic paintings on 140# Watercolor Paper,
as soon as I am able.
The first auction will be for the above painting,

The next will be for

And the finally,

I will be posting the auction schedules on my
as they are scheduled, which will link directly
to the auctions in which they are scheduled.

Once these paintings are sold, I will make the prints available
in my 'Sugar 'N Snails' 
Artfire Shop.

CMZ Art Announces "Sugar N Snails"

I have spent the past Five years 'branding' my
Branding and 'getting the word out' about
one's art, shop(s)  is
NO easy task...and it really consumed most of my time.

Now I have 'expanded' the art that I am creating to be
more uplifting and 'cute'...
creating a lot of new pieces especially as
Wall Art Decor
for Nurseries and Childrens' Rooms.

My newest shop is
CMZ Art's - "Sugar N Snails"

I currently have only a few items listed
but I will be adding brand new
Fairytale Art,
Nursery Rhyme Art,
Nursery Room Art,
Kids' Room Art
Bath Room Art
over the course of the next few days and weeks.

My Tribute to Whitney

In spite of what appears to be
a tragic detour in her life...
I have always liked
Whitney Houston.

It's not for me to judge her life
or her death...
suffice it to say..
I think she contributed so much
to the lives of most anyone who has listened to popular
music the past thirty years...
and with that in mind...
I created an image...
my version...
of Whitney.

I had originally posted the image on several Zazzle
products...but it seems I am
not allowed to post anything 'resembling' Whitney
as it infringes on celebrity status...or something.

Honey Badger products on Zazzle

The video that is going around everywhere,
Honey Badger,
really made me laugh.
It does have some 'language' so be prepared
if you decide to watch the short video.

I guess the popularity of the videos
created a demand for
Honey Badger products...
and with the election upon us..
I couldn't resist creating a few myself.

I did this t-shirt
and I'm waiting for other
non-apparel items
to upload...
with the same design.

I've got a couple more
Honey Badger
ideas that I'll be working on in the next
day or two.

Check my Zazzle Store
to see what else I do with this
nasty little creature:)
As soon as I'm ready to move
the items from the
New Products section...
I'll be giving them their own
Honey Badger section.

What I've been 'up' to...

I'm so busy doing my art...of course...
but now I'm also a Distributor
of a Health/ Nutrition Product that is
hands down
the best I have ever tried.

I've been taking the product since September and it has been
most importantly...I feel great...
and with each birthday that comes and goes...
I've been worried I'll start feeling my age.

That hasn't really happened since I've been 
taking the shakes and the vitamins.

So...I'm now offering a few of the products
on eBay...
and while I'm at it..
I've included a few
original art prints
to go along with them.

I'm having to offer the products at stay compliant with the company...
but anyone who is interested
and wants to learn how to get it at wholesale/ preferred customer prices
or Free...
just go to this link.
