Yesterday was Awesome!
Ok. So I had a bad day the day before. Nothing terrible happened. It was just one of those days whre I hadn't had enough sleep, and I had a millions things to do, and Chloe seemed to be getting into everything.
So anyway, yesterday was great. I was on the front page of Etsy again! Yay! My blue typewriter painting was on the front, and number one. K.Trinks was online too! So I messaged her to get over the the Etsy page STAT! So she is my witness. I thought I knew how to copy the page so that I could post it in my blog...but I guess I don't know how to do it after all.
Ok...it gets even better. I sold the painting :) Yay! Better yet...I sold it it the gal who runs the Decor8 Blog :) I am not sure, but I am hoping that she will get my painting, love it to pieces, and then post it on her blog. Her blog gets A LOT of traffic, so that means A LOT of people will see it. So I am crossing my fingers.
So all in all I had a great day. Yesterday and today.
I discovered this really great artist on Etsy who does these really awesome paintings of pups, mostly Bostons :) His name is Brian Rubenacker and he and his wife own two Bostons. They live in Michigan, and are actually really close to us, so we are going to get our little guys together and have a mini Boston meet up :) Which I am actually really thankful for because poor Chloe still needs quite a bit of socialization.
Other than that I have been getting a lot of painting done. I just gesso-ed six new panels for my Etsy, so all they need now is some pencil, paint, and love. I posted a picture of my hand made gesso because I think it's the best gesso ever. It makes the most beautiful drawing surfaces. I love it and will never go back to the pre-made stuff. I also got some paper torn and ready to go for some new ACEOs. If you don't own a bone (pictured) I highly advise you to get one. Not only are they great for tearing paper, but they have a million other uses too. I can't name them all here...but my book arts instructor use to always say that if she was stranded on a island this is the first thing she would want with her. And I would have to agree with her.
Good god, this is a long post. If you're still reading this good for you :)
Have a good evening!
