New Listings on Etsy

Good afternoon all....I decided to list some more pieces on Etsy. I am not giving up. When i first started painting again after not picking up a brush in years, i made a painting as a gift for an artist that has inspired me so much. I added a quote to the painting.
>"When the world says to give up, Hope whispers "try it one more time"

I will keep at this until the passion for it leaves my heart. So needless to say i dont think i will be giving up any time soon...lol. Take a look here, and feel free to contact me with any questions, ideas, critisicms, or anything else. THanks. Have a creative day.

Sacred Life Day One

So let's start with this...painting...a passion of mine for so long. There are times when i am so caught up that i dream about painting. I dreamt of a painting that i felt i was supposed to paint for about 4 days in a row last week, but i cant seem to put it on canvas. I am trying to be more diligent in sketching out and then painting (again, i want immediate results, lol)...putting more thought into it than just freewheeling and expecting it to come out like it does in my head...some people can do that...i am apparently not one of those people. It means so much to me to be able to do this. To be able to create with my hands, and for it to mean something to someone out there. I am tired of comparing myself to everyone else, and berating myself for not being 'good enough'. The time for that is over, and with God's help i will overcome that insecurity. This year will be my year of finding out what kind of artist i am...what my 'style' is and where this will take me...
Feel free to comment on my artwork and even to give some criticism (be gentle on me). And thank you for stopping by...Hope you have a creative and inspiring day.
