It's been a while, I know. When I wrote to you last I was about to show my work at a local library. Which I did. The opening reception was very nice, better than I had expected. I'm pretty happy to work quietly most days and I'm not a party girl in the least so I was half dreading the reception and the requisite talking. But everyone who came was so lovely, old friends and new, and I was barely uncomfortable at all. In the end ten of the eleven paintings sold. After a little down time I'm back to painting again. The detail above shows the flowers I had on the table at the reception -- thistles and some sort of eucalyptus.
I've reopened my Etsy shop. To kick things off all prints are 20% off. The sale will run from today, March 22, through March 27. No coupon code is needed -- Etsy will show the mark down on each item. I don't have a lot of inventory yet but I'll be adding as time goes by. If there's an image that's not there that you'd like a print of please let me know and I'll see what I can do. I'm now having an outside source do my printing. Making the prints myself, as I did in the past, is pretty time consuming and I want to focus as much as possible on my painting.
Here's a link to my shop:
I want to thank you all for hanging around. I'm so grateful for your support. I hope that the work and small stories to come will continue to hold your interest. I'll probably send this blog out once a month or so, as before, but if you'd like to see how my paintings are progressing you can check out my Instagram page:
