Thank you all so much for the lovely comments left on my last blog post.
I have to admit that they made me cry, in a good way. The internet is such a great way to reach out to other people who are in the same boat.
I don't think I could ever give up making art. Ever. I'm just wondering if I should start working full time again...
I don't think I'm going to go that way, however. Well, not until things get really bad.
I love making art, and I love what I do, even if it doesn't make a lot of money. It just really gets to me some days, and yesterday was a rough day. I forget that your self worth isn't measured by your bank account balance...
So, I'm not ready to give up yet.
I am in several shops and boutiques around Portland. I am also in a shop in New York and shop in Royal Oak, Michigan. I know I need to get more work in stores. Finding the time to do it is another story. ;0
anyway, thanks again for all the encouragement and love.
I spent the day away from computer today. I sang along, really loud, to my favorite songs while I painted today, and it felt so great.
