Top 10 Best Search Terms

I started writing this post in January 2015, and now that we’re officially over 6 months into the year, it’s probably as good a time as ever to publish it.

I think it’s hilarious what some people Google search and then especially when it links them to my website. Sometimes I wonder about humanity when I see these terms but then I remember the “people of Wal-mart” and am quickly reminded that we’ve been doomed for ages. So instead I just smile and laugh and share with you all.

Search Terms that Brought you to Agata’s Art Corner in 2014: (FYI, I kept the grammar/spelling mistakes)

1. “All about giving a painting as gifts for men”

Generally, just don't do it.

Just don’t go there. Full story here

My advice: generally, DON’T DO IT. Only exception would be if you have a direct request.

2. “Butt getting bigger in timelapse”

Big City Girl

Big City Girl – Watch timelapse video here

My input: Sorry to disappoint but my butt stayed the same throughout the video, although the painting progressed. In case you missed it, watch it here.

3. “Daisy in the corner painting”

No one puts Daisy in the corner

No one puts Daisy in the corner

My input: That search term is probably referring to this painting, but my cute little dog is named Daisy too. No one puts her in the corner!

4. “Do people usually like paintings as a gift” AND “What paintings do you give as a gift” AND “Don’t give someone a painting as a gift

I need a job.

This painting was purchased from me and given as a gift to someone else. The gift receiver forgot to say thanks.

My input: (1) Yes, decent people do. (2) Only give ones that you were asked for. And (3) generally yes, don’t give someone a painting as a gift (except when point (2) applies)

5. “Receiving a painting as a gift”

Beacon of Serenity

This painting was also given as a gift but the recipient shed some happy tears she was so touched by how personal it was <– Correct response right there. A+ gift receiver, A freaking Plus!

My input: … say thank you. If you’re touched by a personalized gift, shed a tear. Don’t ask if you can return it and get a big screen TV instead.

5. “Easy step to make sweets on birthday special”

My friends sent me this plate of happiness for my birthday. Winning.

My friends sent me this plate of happiness for my birthday. Winning.

My input: Add lot’s of sugar. Generally, just good life advice.

6. “Birthday gift for someone who lives in their parents basement

You go Glen Co-Co

You go Glen Co-Co

My input: A kick in the ass.

7. “Girls cheating painting

My input:  guilty

8. “What do you think of senan for a boy?

IMG_2487

My input: I prefer Rex. My other fur baby.

9. “She made me wear an apron”

Yup, my mom made this!

Yup, my mom made this!

My input: I hope it was as cute as mine. Otherwise, I’m sorry she did that to you. Girls can be ruthless.

10. “Moms in apron

Here's my mom doing her second favorite thing other than sewing. Just kidding.

Here’s my mom doing her second favorite thing other than sewing. Just kidding.

 

My input: Here you go, my mom in an apron (sorry mom)

———————————————————————————–

That’s it for search terms for now but since it’s been so long, I figured I should share a painting I’ve done too. This one was a commissioned one that I did about 9 months ago. I was told the size and then asked to do two paintings with women in suits but with shorts. The paintings should look like a set but the women should not look related. This is what I came up with.

We are so hip in our suits.

We are so hip in our suits.

Displayed in my parent's house

Displayed in my parent’s house (not the client)

That’s all for now. If anyone is still here, thanks for reading!!

Dodge Viper

I sure have been neglecting this poor old blog of mine lately even though I have quite a few paintings that I’ve completed. So here we go!

For someone who knows and cares very little about cars, I sure do paint a lot of them. Here is the newest addition to the collection, which was done as a commissioned piece.

Some step-by-step progress pictures. collage1collage2

Something I often struggle with is knowing when a painting is done. It’s so easy to get carried away and end up overdoing it. This painting is a good example of that. If you look at the second last progress picture and the final one, you’ll notice I had to “undo” a lot of what I painted. Live and learn :)

And the finished product:

Dodge Viper - 36"x24" - Acrylic on Canvas

And here I am with the finished painting. IMG_2465

This painting was a commissioned piece therefore it is already sold, however prints, up to 18″x12″ are available for sale here.

I recently started yet another commissioned car painting, and this one is huge!! 48″x36″!!! I can’t wait to finish this one and share it with you all. Like my Facebook page to see progress pictures.

Here is your chance to go home with an original piece of artwork, valued up to $1000, by pledging to volunteer in the community for a certain number of hours over the next 12 months.
