A few (many) months ago I embarked on an effort to start getting my paintings professionally scanned. They were starting to accumulate so I decided that I needed to do something with them. I found a semi-local place that does an excellent job scanning and color correcting.


Its an ongoing process. I've only gotten four scanned so far. But I'm a slow mover. It's pretty fun to see copies though!

After this little project I started reading about printing options. One thing led to another and I decided to upload some of my work onto a print on demand website because, why not? And because who wouldn't want a picture of Meatball on a throw pillow? :)

So I'm happy to announce that I now have prints available through Fine Art America. Here's the link to my profile page: http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/caroline-serafinas.html

For those who enjoy my random paintings, prints are available in various sizes but pretty much limited to no bigger than the original. 

Fun, right? 

I've also added a "Shop" page to my blog main page. 

If you haven't heard of Fine Art America before, there is a TON of art available on the site. So at least enjoy the window shopping :)

New Painting for the Kid

Back before M was born I had false expectations of how much free time I'd have after he was born. When I was working on his nursery I left a blank wall for a future painting. Silly me. That wall is still bare two years later.

Luckily things have calmed down a bit since the newborn stage and even since he turned one. And I'm managing to do some painting again. I'm finally working on a painting for M. I'm actually kind of happy that I waited. Instead of painting him something that I thought he might like, I'm painting something that I know he likes: cars. Or as he calls them, "trucks."

This is a portrait of four of his toy cars. They are all different sizes in real life but I've scaled them so they are roughly the same size in the painting.

Here are a few more progress shots:

Things aren't feeling quite as daunting now that I've made some headway on the police car. I may actually finish this year :) Of course this will probably never hang in M's actual nursery. We'll be switching him to a new "big boy" room in the next couple of months.
