Latest paintings

Here are a couple of my latest designs painted onto Calico Bags.
Ah, Holidays are great for anyone that needs inspiration.  I have another beach babe in mind, I just wanted to show you what I've been painting.

Now, What will I do with all these bags?  I could give them away as gifts or I could sell them.
How much do you think I could sell them for??
Your comments and advice are always great appreciated.

Wow , they are both great but the pelican is amazing ! I'm sorry I have no idea how much they would sell for , but I do love them !

i too have no idea when it comes to pricing things...some of your more experienced followers might be able to help. i do know that i think they are both amazing and will get lots of comments if someone were to use them.

hope your easter was relaxing.

The bags are wonderful, I love the pelican. As far as pricing goes that is always hard. Your best bet is to search for similar bags online and see what others are selling for.

Hi Anna, these two paintings are so lovely...the first in particular is my favorite. I cannot believe they are painted on bags. I like Gail's idea of framing the bags and I say...sell them.

Hello Bella,
I really love your 'Pelican'..It's so cute..How much?..Hum, I'm sure there's a site for crafts where you can sell what you make..I can't remember the name thou..But as soon as I find out, I'll let you know...Cheers :-)

Hi Anna, Your bags are beautiful! I like the 'effect' around the pelican as well (the spots).
It's always hard to 'prize' handmade things. Like Marlene I also just go on the internet and google for similar products and their prizes. Etsy might be an option to search.

Great bags! I make and give away a lot of bags. I tried selling them but was unsuccessful, I hope you do better, I'm sure you will because these show such talent and so individual. Your other commenters are right, check prices in your area for similar items and price accordingly. Good Luck!

Hi Anna
Your bags are very beautiful! You are such a good painter/artist and thats a fabulous idea if you ask me. Love them. You should definately sell them. Why not put them on etsy? That is wonderful to have a lovely handpainted tote like that. Its not something you find everywhere...its very speak.

Cost? I'm not so good at that. I agree with the others that you should google and get some price ideas.

Have a lovely day...
hope the sun is shining..its not shining this way today...rainy...I can feel the flowers growing..

You haven't really missed the day. Everyday is Sisterfriends Day. So I wish you A HAPPY SISTERFRIENDS DAY!!!
The bags are great, Anna. I agree. They could be framed easily.

Hi Anna,

I love your bags...especially the pelican...unfortunately I think you will get more for them if you frame them. I wouldn't know how to price them though.

Hugs, Sharon

I like your giving them away as gifts idea...You could send me one ;)They are both great. You could always list them on eBay at say $20 and see how high the bids go.

Anna Rosa, how long is it since I have visited you? Thank you so much for your beautiful message.
I like the large ball idea. They gave me one of these while in labour with my last child. The midwife said to me "swirl round a little" and told me it helps with labour. Well I was 4 cms and sat on this ball, went round a couple of times and was ready to push. In fact it worked that quickly I still had my knickers on and my hubby had to help me, while contractions where big and just got onto the bed in time! Thew!
I give these balls 100%!
If this saddle chair doesn't work I will try the ball! Thank you so much for the idea!
Your art is always fabulous, love the beach girl!

Beautiful paintings Anna! As for pricing? I'm SO not good at that! I've always heard something is worth what another is willing to pay...but finding that out is hard sometimes.
Keep making them, they are lovely!

Natasha Burns said...

Those paintings are fabulous! I can't get over that they are on bags. What did you end up deciding to do?

Hi Anna..

gorgeous paintings...very clever lassie!!

They would probably sell really well in a resort town like NOOSA??
HEY get kerryanne onto the AGENT sit rep & have her sell them for you in her area??

Yep..I am a gonzo...maybe make them into cards as well??
