Missing in action?

I know it may seem that I have been missing in action yet the truth of it is I have been creatively busy.  This would be a good time to give you my FaceBook page info: which is the place that I post my creations and thoughts as they occur.  Stop over and LIKE my page if you want to stay current with me.

I am a self-taught mixed media artist which means did not go to art school or have any formal training.  It doesn't mean that my work is of less value than someone who did.  My art comes from my heart and there can never be any value placed on that.  What is does mean is there is basic knowledge and understanding of the principles of art that I may lack.  In order to continue to grow and thus offer the best art I possibly can, I do things behind the scenes like taking on-line classes, independent studying, learning from fellow artists, and practice, practice, practice.

I started this journey in August 2011 after I came to realize there was more to life than what I was living.  My life wasn't bad, I just felt  there was more that life had to offer.  I started off just playing in art (I still LOVE to).  As I continued, I became like a sponge to learn all that I could learn.  I knew deep inside that I was being guided along this creative path by the Universe, God, Spirit or whatever the name you want to attach.  I just wasn't certain where it would take me, I still don't know!  Yet I possess enough assurance to keep moving forward.  Along the way the detours have been plenty, yet my  intention is to simply get back on track.

Fast Forward:
It's been over a year now that I lost my job and made the decision to give it a go at being a self-employed artist earning a living from selling my artwork I create in my home studio, and teaching workshops.   I will reveal a weakness I want desperately to myself and marketing my art.  Why?  I'm not truly certain but I have a inkling it's a residual affect of "not feeling good enough" that is derived from my childhood.  Then I think "Get over it!  You're 62 yrs old!!!"  That is what I am intending to do!!  All of my art that I post here, on FaceBook, on my website is always for sale, I will make custom items, as well.   If you are ever interested please send me a message.  When my new and improved website is done I will keep it up to date.

Let's get back to what I've been up to since my last blog entry.  I have been dividing my time between the task of revamping my website to reflect the artist I am today, taking on-line classes, doing custom work for customers, and eagerly creating art.  Let me show you the art I've done since my last post.


Thank You for your continued support and encouragement.
