    Arrow MMH: Make Me Happy canvas board paintings

    I'd be into trading canvas board paintings as they are fairly easy to mail.

    One of a kind originals. Any medium...mixed, acrylic, oil, collage.

    What size? well why not give me a heads up as to what size you are willing to do and lets' take it from there. 5x7 or the like might be a good size but anything goes. The first person that takes me up on one can decide the size and we'll keep it that way unless someone wants to do something larger/smaller. I'd be interested in making one in return for the first person that signs up just to get the ball rolling....

    Post some themes you'd be interested in and then the next poster will paint for you an original work.

    Two week turn around time. PM to thread if there is a problem. Leave itrader for players. Thanks!

    I'd love:

    an old church
    a whimsical dog with party hat
    a goth girl/guy
    a hindu god
    a decorative skull
    a portrait of someone angry
    a werewolf, frankenstein or dracula portrait
    a whimsical cat


    Thanks! Can't wait to start!

    Hi, CB. I'm not sure what kind of thread this is.

    MMH is Make Me Happy. In a MMH, the thread-starter gives suggestions as to what he/she wants to receive. Poster 2 agrees to make one of the suggested items and posts 3 that s/he would like. Poster 3 agrees to make one of the items and posts his/her wishlist, and so on.

    (Edited to remove descriptions of other kinds of trade threads)

    hey there CB, I like this idea! is this a 1 for 1? I make 1, then the next person makes me 1...kinda like a PIF? I've never done a MMH, so I'm not really sure...

    okay.. this I gotta do...

    how about 5x7- since its small & should be cheap to mail...

    I will send you either
    a whimsical cat, a decorative skull, or a whimsical dog with party hat...
    I kind of need to think and play before I get specific...
    or can I just surprise you with one??

    It will be mixed-medium (paint/collage/ink) for sure....
    and now I just gotta go get some 5x7 c/boards -too bad its midnight and no 24 hour Michaels or art stores here...

    and as for the MMH part-
    I would love to have.....
    (5x7; any medium okay with me!)
    - dragonfly themed;
    -a Rastafarian/Selassie themed;
    -an alien (i like the Greys)
    -a Raven
    -a sign i can use for my studio door that says STUDIO!!!
    -a city-scape (skyscrapers- city images)
    -a Virgo or Chinese Pig astrological thing
    -some kind of Zetti Cat!!!

    Hello ,I am so sorry to say that I went to my local ``art store``if that is what I can call it,in my small town and they dont have 5x7 canvas,they have imitation plastic canvas boards to paint on that are 8 and a half by 11 only . I will have to drop out of this PIF. I had already thought out the sea horse to paint,to bad.

    Yesh have you tried the dollar store where you live? Sometimes they sell them there. Also you don't have to follow 5x7 it can be any size canvas board. Maybe ask who you are trading with and perhaps one done on hard plastic would be great too Artsie if Yesh is out and you don't get another I'll do you one.
