Happy Holidays

Hi all, I have ePackets for the painters, Wall Paintings, Home Decor and more for sale.

Finely opened the store. It took a while tho, seems code, etc., never goes the right way the first time and to be able to stay around and work on it was a chore in itself so, as stated before, it took some time but still hoping not too late for the Holidays.

Happy Holidays

Thanks everyone in advance.

Rainy Days

Are great for reading, painting, housework, baking and maybe a big pot of chili to.
If time permits, I've been thinking about doing a painting of still life, maybe a wine bottle, hopefully a glass half full of wine, grapes and leaves, candle, cheese and of course I will have to throw in some daisies since I love them.
Just need the time to sit and sketch how I want them placed and decide on colors for background and table cloth. But then by the time I get ready to start it, seems like things change and elements are added and some even taken out completely. I guess I'll see what happens.
I will post my final painting when done.

I'd Rather Be in the Studio!

My Favorite and Most Helpful Book for Artists!
A Book I refer to frequently and highly recommend:

Alyson Stanfield's book I'd Rather Be in the Studio!

The Artist's No-Excuse Guide to Self-Promotion is the most comprehensive self-promotion advice out there for artists. And not only is it packed with information, she also shows *artists of all kinds* how to implement each action step. For example, I love the section where she shows me how I can make my customer list and get my biz organized and how to promote myself.
I can also attest that the book is well designed, easy to follow, and a pleasure to look at (graphically). With the big red exclamation point that I see on the spine when it sits on my bookshelf!" A Must Have Book! I'd Rather Be in the Studio! !
