    It was a watercolor of a purple iris. Last week I decided to "test the waters" and try it out. Finally today, the last day, someone bought it. There are soooo many paintings for sale and I just wasn't sure about this whole thing.

    Good for you! How nice to be able to make some extra $$ from something you like doing. Can you give us a link so we can see it?

    Glad to hear that, Since I can't work outside the home anymore I also sell on E-bay from time to time. I used to do it alot but I just cant hardly take all the typing and the strain on my neck and back. It's always nice when something goes right. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

    That's great! Don't you love that feeliing when someone buys your work.

    I sell stained glass at a art gallery in my town. I have tried selling on ebay but have been thinking about.

    See my profile to see how to see my work if you want.

    How long have you been painting? Do you just do watercolors?

    I have to visit ebay and see what you sold- Congrats-Carla

    I think I saw the one you are talking about when you posted a picture of it. If so I am not surprised it sold. IT would be nice to seel some here before we run out of room for them. Epecially not that my wife is getting into woodburning and I am painting those for her. You are way better than I am though and you deserver to sell your work.

    the painting is beautiful and so professional. Good for you selling it on EBay.

    I've bought a couple of paintings from EBay, both from Germany, I'm in Europe, and very happy with them I am.
