Greetings. My name is Elenaria, I'm generally called Ellie. I paint mostly in oils and watercolours (and a wee bit in acrylics), whichever suits my fancy. I am a geek of many things, an archaeologist, archivist and an all-around creative person!
I am happy to have you here as a visitor. This is a page created to give my art more exposure, and show off current and past creations of mine. I hope you will enjoy what you find, and if it catches your fancy, maybe buy a print or just write a constructive comment!
If you are interested in purchasing the original paintings (unless specified otherwise, they're still in my possession), I can supply you with photos in various lighting conditions, to better help you appreciate what they look like in real life. And, of course, details about shipping (on the frame? rolled up? express delivery?) and whether you want to be really certain that the painting is completely dry (most often, they appear dry after a week or two, but depending on the thickness, it could be up to nine months before they have dried entirely - that's oils for you) and wait for the shipping, want me to paint on a certain kind of surface protection, etcetera. Ask, and I shall respond!
To make a commission for an outfit or a piece of clothing, I shall require very good communication, and the individual pricing will depend on time, materials and level of difficulty. Rest assured, however, that you will certainly get what you pay for - any good handicraft is worth its price, and I have been accused of being a perfectionist more than once.
To see some other art I have made, mostly hobby-related or for fun, and also old drawings, head over to Elfwood at www.elfwood.com/~gydemo where I have had an account since around the beginning of time. My blog at tindome-art.blogspot.com contains a lot more detail about some of my older paintings, such as thought processes and what specific paints I might have used, if you find such things of interest!
As always, feel free to comment and give feedback. It is much welcome. And don't hesitate to suggest what I ought to get up to for my next project!
