Happy Friday! Well, I haven’t painted in a few days. I work full time, so sometimes I procrastinate just a little. I’ve only been painting for a couple of years, and have no formal training, so it’s taken a while to really get into the habit of creating on a regular basis.
I remember when I first started, I would wait to feel inspired before working on my art. It’s taken some time to realize that inspiration comes from doing, not waiting. I’ve also come to realize that it’s hard to make a living selling art. I sold 50+ paintings last year, but not expensive ones, so it can be easy to get discouraged. At the end of the day, I remember that the money really doesn’t matter…50+ people LIKED my art! That is the biggest compliment for an artist 🙂
So, today I am back in my studio at 5am with Dave Matthews blaring in my MP player, and I’m going to finish the 2 large sheep on canvas. Since I have a nice, long weekend, I’m also planning to start at least one new painting!
Ciao for now, and check back for completed photos!
