It's always MAY

Hi all!

I'm May Terry. I'm 56 and live in Portland, Connecticut with my life partner John and three wonderful kitties.

I started working with the visual arts in 2005, and found myself increasingly drawn to digital collage and image manipulation.

While I enjoy working with many different media, digital work allows me a broad outlet for my imagination.

I love to
blog, and put a lot of my art up there.

My listings can be found on
etsy and on eBay

Stop by my blog and say hello!

I am Leola Walker. I am 54 and retired. I live in a resort community in Saskatchewan with my husband and two cats.

I started painting a few years ago. I painted on anything I could get my hands on…cement, wood, canvas. You name it, I painted on it.

By chance I learned of Artist Trading Cards (ATC) and mail art. Soon I had collected well over 400 cards. (I'm still collecting). I soon branched out to ACEO's (art cards, editions, originals - the same as ATC’s only ACEO’s are sold rather than traded. Both are always 2.5” x 3.5”) and miniatures (small format art).

Painting in miniature is a passion with me.

I use mainly acrylics, but have dabbled in oils and pencil. I am known mainly for my "element" paintings because of my love for the ever the changing western sky.

You will find me on ebay and on etsy when you search for Southshoreartist.

We got somethin' we both know it ~ We don't talk too much about it ~ Yeah it ain't no real big secret all the same ~ Somehow we get around it ~ Listen, it don't really matter to me baby ~ You believe what you want to believe ~ You see you don't have to live like a refugee ~ Somewhere, somehow somebody Must have kicked you around some ~ Tell me why you wanna lay there And revel in your abandon ~ Listen it don't make no difference to me baby ~ Everybody's had to fight to be free ~ You see you don't have to live like a refugee ~ Now baby you don't have to live like a refugee ~ Baby we ain't the first I'm sure a lot of other lover's been burned ~ Right now this seems real to you ~ But it's one of those things ~ You gotta feel to be true ~ Somewhere, somehow somebody Must have kicked you around some ~ Who knows, maybe you were kidnapped Tied up, taken away and held for ransom ~ It don't really matter to me ~ Everybody's had to fight to be free ~ You see you don't have to live like a refugee ~ I said you don't have to live like a refugee

Welcome To CaaT ~ Complementary Art and Things

CaaT was founded in 2005 by Blueyeduckstudios for artists on eBay in the form of an eBay discussion board. With all the recent fee and feedback changes imposed by eBay, many art sellers have fled to other selling venues to broaden their selling horizons. Dozens of CaaT members have expanded their vision, blueyeduckstudios included, to sell primarily on the HANDMADE venue of Etsy.com.

This blog is a gathering place for CaaT artists and the blogging community - to exchange encouragement and commentary. We will discuss our showcased art found on both ETSY and eBay - as well as on other venues. CaaT artists no longer need to feel like eBay refugees - scattered all over, alone ... we are a community no matter where we offer our art.


CaaT ~COMPLEMENTARY ART & THINGS ~ is a fabulous place to talk about your art, your website, your ETSY shop, your eBay auctions, ETC! We are simply a gathering of friends and artists (with art of all sizes, styles, and mediums) discussing and promoting one another's art and/or other arty items.

We hope to COMPLEMENT one another in the creating process as well as help to make our fellow artist/seller find a completeness in her/his ART by way of fresh ideas, reviews, encouragement and brainstorming! Our arms are open to the art collecting community - to exchange meaningful dialogue as we showcase or wares and delight one another with our fabulous creations.

We are so much more than "just another group". We support and encourage the ARTIST - we promote the spirit of the Artist along with his/her art! We have a SUCCESSFUL group acronym (exclusive to CaaT members) for seekers to use to find our fabulous ART on eBay - which is now expanding to ETSY.

We welcome comments and discussion from buyers and the blogging community as we showcase our art here.

Joy in the journey,

katey-D / blueyeduckstudios (on etsy and eBay)
