Magritte and NFAC Nibblefest Art Contest

NFAC: Search Ebay for NFAC and find LOTS more art for 99 CENTS.

Nibblefest Art Contest, started on the 20th (every month) where you can bid on wonderful art on Ebay, starting at 99 cents. The auctions go for 7 days, so it is ending soon! My entries are here, for this month's theme Something Hidden.

ACEO: "Man with Apple," in the style of Magritte
Mixed media on heavy paper, Miniature Masterpiece Series
bidding starts at 99 cents

Original above, "Lola and Friend,"
(Lola is the Ragdoll Cat)
bidding starts at 99 cents
9x12 matted to 11x14 ready to frame.
Done in watercolor on Canvas paper, which was a real challenge, since it does not absorb the paint. Much like working on Yupo paper.

Two Woman with Hats, bidding starts at 99 cents
Matted ready to frame in 11x14 size
The original is an odd size, so I mounted it for ease of framing. It was originally done as an exercise in values and color complements in my watercolor class. I liked the results so decided it should be added to my For Sale paintings. Usually I am careful to make my artwork more saleable by painting standard sizes.

    1. Thanks, Arnoldo. I always gamble with NFAC. Sometimes I sell them for 99 cents, but I am always prepared to do so. My daughter in the picture is an artist, so she is not "impressed" with my artwork, but Lola is a work of art all on her own! LOL.
