I really appreciate all of your ideas and I will think about using them all, and if I do, I will give you a free print. If you see I used your idea, remind me. :)
I'm sorry, this just about killed me, I think I will go back to picking numbers because this is too hard. I wish I could give each of the 17 comments a free print! Maybe you will win next time.

Here is my newest painting on muslin. I could not resist listing it on ebay for nibblefest, although it has been months since I listed anything on ebay. It's 9x12, will need to be framed or sewn into something, like a purse or a pillow. It's a little more rustic than my usual work, but I thought it looked so cool on the fabric, I stopped when it told me to.
Nibblefest is an art contest on ebay where everything starts at 99 cents, and the artist who gets the most unique bidders wins. I came in second once, years ago. It's a good way for new people to find my work, but sometimes it falls flat and one of my little paintings goes for $4 or something. But oh well, that's the way it is sometimes.
The theme this month for nibblefest is Trees, Rivers. You can't see it, but there is a raging river behind those sisters.

Anne Tyler has been my favorite author for years, so I decided to name this flower head after her.
I used to do what I called "Flower Head Girls" all the time when I sold on ebay a few years ago, and I decided to do some more.
5x7 on fine quality paper.

I just finished this painting last night, I am so excited about working with the muslin ground, I keep running upstairs after my babysitting duties are over and painting a new one! I listed it on etsy and it already sold, but I will be offering it as a print.

I named her after the author of one of my favorite reference books, The Country Diary of An Edwardian Lady. I think Edith Holden would like my flower head girls. Maybe she was a flower head girl herself.
