Today, I created three new Collection folders which sort the over 250 images on my pages here in new ways.
One folder holds art I recommend for the acrylic substrata offered by FAA. Anyone purchasing a contemporary acrylic presentation may choose between having a metal wire hanger attached or acrylic posts.
Another Collection includes recommendations for some of my artwork which might be appealing published on metal.
A third folder highlights the geographical poster art I've designed. Hope you will find something to delight and please you.

Some of my art and art products may currently be seen at The Painted Tree 8045 Giacosa Place in Memphis TN near Bartlett, just off Germantown Parkway in booth I-1, the last aisle on the right hand after entering this retail store. The store is open 10-8 daily. People at the front desk will process all purchases.
I uploaded a new digital artwork "Southern Roads" to Fineartamerica today to the other over 200 works by me for sale on this site.
Hope everyone is doing fine during these challenging times. --Karen Francis

"Metamorphosis" and "Urban Abstractions" are two new digital artworks I created and uploaded to Pixels and Fine Art America.
Today my art images are reordered to reflect on Cinco De Mayo. 🌵 🇲🇽 🌸 💃🌮
I hope to add another greeting card for Mother's Day soon. (See Collections Posters Greeting Cards for current Mother's Day Cards) Did you know you can have individually customized greeting cards, with your own words printed inside, for an order of even ONE card?

You now have the ability to fill your surroundings with art images you enjoy as STICKERS in one of four sizes! Also, PUZZLES are now available with two choices for the number of pieces in your contemporary masterpiece challenge. #art
Hopefully the pricing options will show up after updates to the system take place, for all my works. Happy online shopping, everyone. 👍 😁

I've uploaded the current, revised version of the oil painting "Nativity" with a new name: "In the Stable." This image still features Mary, Jesus and a Wiseman bringing a gift. I left the previous image online in case some of you prefer it for prints and products over the revised original. I noticed while uploading "In the Stable" that Pixels, sister site to Fine Art America is now offering a new product of puzzles for art images. I plan to add that tag to my other 200+ art images here soon. Hope you are all staying well. Best wishes for a pleasant holiday season.

Hope you are surviving the storms, fires, and other disasters we've had all over the U.S. recently.
I added two new artworks based on rose shapes with lots of negative white space in between.
Also, you will find some of my newest videos uploaded to youtube.com/c/blessings427 Art Promotions channel there featuring over 200 videos on the subject of art, movies, music, travel and inspirational topics. The recent one titled Is There Still Life in Still Life? really took off with views. It's free to subscribe. I've reached the 1,000 subscriber mark now which enables me to post to the Community board, but not sure if anyone is seeing the posts, sort of like with this blog. I need 7.5 times more WATCH Time of my videos than I have now by viewers on YouTube, to qualify for monetization of my channel. Perhaps someday I will be able to present more videos based on some of the art and artists on Fine Art America, once I reach a greater volume of views. Do any of you have YouTube channels also? Let me know so I can check it out.

This is the new big deal here: Art Collectors, it's your time to shine. Click on this link before the end of July, 2020 and whatever you purchase on this site and keep, no matter which artist it was created by, will lead to a small commission for me and a chance to win a contest. Here's the link: fineartamerica.com/shop/canvas+prints?affiliateId=A63082
Thanks so much. Whoever raises the most commission for me, let's see, I will give them access to a very private video never shown before to the public called "What Growing Up Looked Like for Me" or the choice of any of my prints or art products marketed here on fineartamerica or pixels .com, with my artist commission at zero. In other words, if you choose a mask, the price will be 50 cents less to you, as that is what my mark up is on those. My mark up might be as much as $5.00 to $10.00 on some of the products. So jump right in and be sure to use this affiliate ID A63082. Thanks so much!

Hope you are all staying well and sane during this difficult year. You may find one or two new images from me since the last time you checked in. Also, I added the recently introduced product that fineartamerica and pixels are making available: masks. These are NOT medical, surgical grade and they are 100 percent polyester with ear straps. Any of my art designs may be selected and ordered. I kind of feel most will be drawn to the abstract collections though. Anyway, let's hope and pray for an end to Covid-19 right away and a cure for those who are ill.
