I’ve been painting for a little over a year now. I love making my “girls”. They are so much fun for me, and it’s something that I am drawn to. However, I’ve been wanting to do a couple of other series of paintings. I love birds and flowers, so I made this little painting to help jump start this series. I haven’t figured out what the second series is going to be yet, but it will come to me at some point. This was a fun little painting, and kind of represents what’s going on with me right now. I’m taking a risk with trying to do art full time and make a living out of it. It’s a very scary place to be. I have to depend on myself, and that’s something I’m not sure I can do! Thank goodness for Kelly Rae Roberts and her class Flying Lessons for showing me the way to do things. Hopefully, I will learn tons from her and be able to make all my dreams come true. I’m working on setting my goals for my business and see what exactly where it is I want to take it. My first step is to get some online sales and do a couple of art shows. Next I will plan on getting published in some magazines. This will hopefully boost my Etsy sales. It’s a hard place to be when you feel like you are alone.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the new painting. There should be more like this to follow soon.
