Conni Schaftenaar's Profile

About

My name is Conni. I have started painting in watercolors in the last few years, originally to do a promotional calendar for my business to give to clients each year. They are so well received that people have encouraged me to sell them. The images transfer well to greeting cards, totes, and pillows, as well.

I also love to take photos and then create art with them using Photoshop. I have themed calendars and greeting cards with images I've created that, way, also.

I am a member of Ravelry (user name "csfgirl") where I show items I've crocheted, knitted, or embroidered. I'm also on Flickr as "csfgirl", where you can see many of the photos I've painted from, and lots more - flowers, horses, farm scenes, previous promotional calendars I've done.

I have a Facebook page for this shop: http://www.facebook.com/ElderberryBlossom, where i share things about what I'm doing but also share other wonderful art I find in various places.

Additionally, my husband and I have a farm where we raise Percheron draft horses, and naturally-raised meats - chicken, lamb, and Berkshire pork. I have a web site for the farm with photos, info, links about farming, horses, and foods (http://www.coachstopfarm.com), and I have a food blog about raising, canning, cooking with (mostly) whole foods (http://goodfooddownonthefarm.blogspot.com/). The farm also has a Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/CoachStopFarm1

I am also a member of Fine Art America, where I am working on uploading photos and paintings I've done. They can produce my art on a number of surfaces, from paper, to canvas, to acrylic. You can see my offerings here: http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/theelderberryblossom.html
