Kiss the Sun
A friend called me up this morning to request my services. She wanted a piece for her living room area that overlooks and leads out to her garden. It’s hard doing the printing legwork myself, and not having a third party involved, but I have to say – working for yourself is freedom incarnate.
This is the digital sketch. I’m undecided on whether to go the expensive print + transfer to canvas option or simply use this as a guide and go back to one of my old loves – painting. I’ve showed it to a few people and they love it already. This marks my first sale completely on my own.
Whatever the future holds for my artwork, I want to thank all of you for always supporting me. I’ve still got a lot of categories and features to add before I become a business again, but that doesn’t matter anymore. What matters is, when I’m good and ready, I know you’ll be there. That thought makes me smile.
An art teacher I had the pleasure of being schooled by back in elementary school once told me, “When you’re feeling crazy, throw some paint on the walls!” What she meant was: When you’re feeling scattered in that artsy mess of a brain of yours, let it all out. Let go of any insecurity and just let your hands tell the story. She’s fantastic person and one of my many inspirations to this day. This one’s for you Miss Phyllis.
