Original Abstract Paintings Watercolor and Acrylic

artbycherinda is taking a short break.

11/4/13 - I am still here. Have had a health challenge and need to keep this store on vacation until I am able to get back to it. However, I am still happy to communicate with you by convos or e-mail if you have a particular painting you'd like to see or are interested in.

artbycherinda's Shop Announcement

Welcome to my store! As you can see, I love color and movement and contrast and lines and shapes and just letting the paint go where it will sometimes. I paint from my soul what I'm feeling or what I've observed (I love the beauty found in nature) or what moves me and sometimes I just simply let the paint speak to me and for me when I don't have the words. In my paintings, I want to share beauty and hope (and sometimes just whimsy and fun) and give you a painting that speaks to you and makes you happy everytime you look at it.

With my paintings, you are getting something totally original and one of a kind. There will never be another one exactly like it (even if I tried). With that being said, I don't know if there are some of you out there who would prefer a print rather than an original painting, but if there is a painting you'd happen to like a print of, I would be happy to look into the process of getting it made into a print.

If you are just looking for a certain size of painting, you can enter the size of painting you are looking for in the area beside "This Shop" at the top of the page in the middle and it will pull up all the paintings I have in those sizes: ie: 4x4, 5x5, 6x6, 8x10, 9x12, 11x14, 12x12, 14x14, 18x24, 24x30, 24x26, etc. Same thing if you are looking for a certain color or something specific. Otherwise, you can shop by the sections I have on the left hand side of the page which are basically divided according to acrylic, watercolor, flowers, landscapes, and mixed media.

Thanks for stopping by my gallery!

****I ask that you read my store policies before purchasing so you are aware of what I expect and what you can expect. Also, please read my item descriptions carefully before you make a purchase and convo me if you feel you need to know more before you buy. I am happy to answer your convos and want to make sure you know exactly what you are getting so you are satisfied with your purchase when it arrives.

****I do care about the environment (and am thrifty in order to pass the savings on to you), so I try to ship using upcycled/recycled cardboard and boxes when possible. Anything over 14x14 will be packaged and shipped by UPS as I don't have room to store that much cardboard!

****All the items I have listed in my store are in stock and ready to ship.

***If you are on Facebook, I do have a page on there and you can see what I'm up to by liking it. You'll find it at
