I'm a Professional!

I sold my first painting today! So, I guess that makes me a professional artist now... :~)

The painting was a custom request for a friend. And although it took me a while to decide on the direction I would take the painting, when I was done I knew it was the right fit for her. It also led to the start of my "new" collection. The Sisterhood Collection. Here is the featured painting (without the special brooch) - "I am DST".

Printers and Notecards... Oh My...

I woke early this morning with a goal... I created my Etsy Shop weeks ago and still did not have anything up for sell. Thus, the goal - Sell something. Or, at least put something to sell.

Weeks ago, I explored the idea of creating notecards. I made some test samples (well ordered them on Vistaprint) shared the notecards wth friends and recieved some positive feedback. So positive in fact, that I had a few folks asking me when can they place an order...

So, that let me to today. My spontaneous purchase 1. a new printer - that could print high quality photos and 2. some cardstock. And now tonight... I'm burnt out. Or anxious. Of a combination of both. I have no energy to even finish this post tonight. No patience to type about the hell setting up a wireless printer put me through or the jipperness I want to feel because my art is now for sell on notecards. Maybe I will find time to discuss another day... please do take a look at my esty shop - and make it a favorite!!

I know many of you are still waiting to see me paint something other than Black Women with naturals, and I have to admit, when I stare at a blank canvas, I try to tap into something inside me, to find a vision to paint something else, but it's just not in me yet. Jameeka is a bit more unique than the others... she's sporting some chic shades!!

I finally finished Ivy... She is wearing a brooch I bought off Etsy... I keep fixing her lips, but "fixing" them over and over still hasn't made it better, so I decided that everyone's makeup can't be perfect! I'm really going to try and make my next personality look a bit more "happy".
