I seem to remember that the original painting (shown below) didn't generate a ton of bids; it is rather a narrow niche - tarot reading Dachshunds. Still, it might make a fun greeting card to re-create with a lab or some generic dog, or maybe a cat or llama? While browsing in my old files for the scanned, finished painting I was amazed at the hundreds of paintings I've sold on eBay over the years. Considering that my take-home on Cafe press is now under $50 month since their commission re-structure (yes - ouch) I might be doing a lot more originals to sell in the near future. I imagine that after 6 years of being self-employed the time to work for someone else again may be here. Maybe a fortune telling weiner dog could look in a crystal ball and see where my art is going to lead me next.

It's time to start thinking about new products and art for the holidays. I already feel behind with Christmas and Hanukkah coming in a few months. I'll be concentrating on expanding to some other dog breeds this year, so if you have an idea of what you'd like to see be sure to drop me a line.
I also hope to put more originals up on eBay soon as well. I think I smell a new poll for what folks would like to see.
