July!

Desert Plant
Ah....... summer.

I really and truly am a summer person. I am so happy when I can just go out in shorts and sandals.  Living in Florida all those years really affected me. Living here in the cold weather I have to drag myself out of bed in the mornings. And when I do get going I am so miserably unhappy.  I merely exist waiting for summer.  In summer I pop out of bed anxious to start the day! I am like a different person when I am living in a warm place.

Well next year at this time, god willing,  I will be living in a very warm place and I will love every minute of it.

I have been thinking about re-opening my Etsy shop to try and sell some of the art that is piling up all over the house.

I am really creating a lot of work lately and the piles are just getting deeper. I have to wrap each piece up individually in deli paper since I learned the hard way that acrylic paintings will stick together when they are piled on top of each other. I have lost some lovely pieces that way. One thing I do know about myself is that I create the most artwork when I am at my most miserable. Sad fact but true.

I will post a link here when I figure out how to navigate all the new systems on Etsy. It is quite different than it was back in 2008 which is when I first opened my shop.

Have a great 4th of July long weekend! Talk soon!

I want you to keep making art, but not if you have to be miserable. LOL Your work is an inspiration. Yes, open your Etsy shop again.

Well, inspiration and producing work can come from different avenues!!! I love your work and you should get back to selling your work. You can just create a 2nd page to your blog to sell your pieces...(saves paying Etsy $$'s)..just a thought...check Mary's blog to see how she does it:
