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'm happy to have you here as a visitor! I don't always manage to reply to Favouritings or suchlike, but I do see them, and I do appreciate them. Often, I get to see your art in return, which is always a delight!
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!
Commissions aren't out of the question, but I'll require good communication so that you get what you want! Also, please remember that handmade things are, well, handmade. Their price isn't to rip you off, it's well-motivated and it's not really okay to ask for a piece of beauty without giving anything in return, especially if people make their living off of it (I have a full-time job, but, then, I can't paint as much as I would like to).
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!
