Hello Etsy!

For a while now, I’ve considered the possibility of opening up an Etsy shop. I realize there are lots of people who do not wish to purchase items on eBay; it is disheartening to lose auction after auction at the last second.

So today I did it. I opened up a Miller Campbell Designs Etsy store & listed my first item. Although it may take a while for a doll to appear on there, this will be a great venue to sell paintings, maybe prints (in the future) & possibly smaller dolls as I’ve had several requests for birds & some of my smaller accessories that often accompany my little girls. Plus, I just love to constantly make things…so don’t be surprised if you see something that doesn’t seem to ‘fit’ my more primitive stylings… I sometimes like to just see what happens.

This painting is available now on Etsy. Swing by and take a look! And if you have an Etsy account, don’t be afraid to show me some love! I love discovering new art made by tender & creative hands!

"To Become"

I’m so happy to be able to offer TWO items this week! Prim & Whimsy Girls, an ebay art group I so proudly belong to, came up with an art challenge to welcome June & all sorts of blossoming somethings. Our theme is ‘Art in Bloom’ & we’ll be offering our items on eBay June 1st-7th.

This painting, titled ‘To Become’ is my second piece of art for the challenge. (View Caroline in the post below.) This is an original acrylic painting on 16″ x 20″ canvas. She was based loosely upon the idea of the ‘Green Man’.

This is the Wikipedia article about Green Man:

A Green Man is a sculpture, drawing, or other representation of a face surrounded by or made from leaves. Branches or vines may sprout from the nose, mouth, nostrils or other parts of the face and these shoots may bear flowers or fruit. Commonly used as a decorative architectural ornament, Green Men are frequently found on carvings in churches and other buildings (both secular and ecclesiastical).

The Green Man motif has many variations. Found in many cultures around the world, the Green Man is often related to natural vegetative deities springing up in different cultures throughout the ages. Primarily it is interpreted as a symbol of rebirth, or “renaissance,” representing the cycle of growth each spring. Some speculate that the mythology of the Green Man developed independently in the traditions of separate ancient cultures and evolved into the wide variety of examples found throughout history.

Such a Funny Girl (A Primitive & Whimsical Doll Painting.)

ClownHeadOn This little girl made her eBay debut last night!

I have had so much fun creating this little girl for an eBay group challenge. Prim & Whimsy Girls (PWGL), of which I’m proudly a member, has hosted a group challenge for March 1st-15th. The title of the challenge is "A Primsical Flip Flop". The idea was to challenge members to create something different than their usual creations. So, this little gal came to be. My usual eBay offerings consist of original one of a kind folk art dolls. Well this one is a doll too! She’s just flat.

This is a signed 16" x 20" painting on gallery wrapped canvas. This was created using acrylic paints & fabric. The staple-free sides have been painted & it is ready to be hung without a frame. It is sealed with glossy varnish for durability.

She is SIGNED and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity which bears my full signature.
