His Name is Art
This is my new work and I really love the tree on it that I painted. That's probably my favorite part. That water mark is where I glazed over the top and it really isn't red--I guess it's my scanner--it's actually orange and it is supposed to blend in like an overlay of color. Anywhoo--this goes with my piece Retreat which Jane has now--but I do have a couple of prints left. I'm trying to work more in collections and this is going to be a part of my Peaceful and Serenity collection. I have all of two pieces in that collection...LOL...but you gotta start somewhere.
Good news --didn't get screwed on the shipping for my last piece..LOL....Laura thought that would make a good t-shirt! :) Haha...she had me laughing with her comment! You guys are the best. Christy asked how my etsy shop was going--and it's going good--slow but steady, between that and a couple of custom orders plus what a couple people have bought that I didn't list, I'm doing pretty good. I wish for more sales, but it's hard to sling out the pieces. Most take several days to finish if not weeks, so I can only list so much a week which is a challenge in an of itself. I'm loving it, and like so many have remarked lately, I've really channeled so many of my frustrations into my new love....his name is Art.
So, next time what's his face calls and harasses me about who I'm going with (and that's putting it in g-terms to what he really says to me...grrrr c&^%$#!***), I'm going to tell him the truth...his name is ART. And he's good to me. Quiet, forgiving, challenges me to be better and better everyday, he gives back to me and doesn't take from me, he is there for me and he makes me smile. What a difference as to how things used to be.
Art, I love you.
