Partly because of my husband's illness and the year we spent fighting his cancer..and losing.
Partly because, I really don't leave my house very much anymore.
And, partly because...well, I'm not sure why...I just don't have as many 'opinions' as I used to have...so I guess I've become somewhat boring.
Now, I have met a very special person on Etsy. She is a collector...but, most important..she is a kind and considerate person who has offered words of encouragement and all of the help that she can, to further our work in this world. How special is that??!!!!
I wished I were as extroverted as our dear new friend...perhaps I worry too much about rejection...maybe..???

Several now have shops on Etsy.
Others are listing on Overstock.Com
A few have given up on selling their art online.
A few of the Etsy Shop Links, with current updates, can be found at the bottom of this page.

I cannot personally afford to continue listing on eBay, given all of the changes and glitches it has undergone in recent months.
With all of the problems, paintings that used to receive hundreds of views are lucky to reach 100.
Many of the artists who list on eBay are expressing concern..but, no one is listening.
So, I have personally decided not to list anything new...at least until eBay is done with their tests, glitches and whatever else it is doing.

Last week, she was hospitalized with several health issues...but doctors felt she should recover in a week or two.
This past Tuesday...she passed away.
I never saw her without a smile on her face...when she laughed, which was often, she laughed from the top of her head to the bottom of her feet...it was great.
I've known her all of my life...she was my mom's sister!
I will really miss her broad smile and hearty laugh! Her heart was good and pure. Her words, encouraging and loving.
Not surprisingly...at the very moment of her passing...she smiled!
This painting is currently for sale on eBay, relisted as a non featured painting.

This is my first post on this blog. While I am not new to blogging, this is my first 'painting' blog. I have enjoyed reading a lot of the painting blogs here and decided to go ahead and do yet another.
It will take a bit for me to get this blog completely set up...but, this is a start!
I do paint almost everyday...(I take Sundays off for family). Some of my paintings get listed on eBay, some go into galleries and others are commissions. So..I do stay busy.
This painting is entitled 'Beautiful Bald'. October is 'Breast Cancer Awareness Month'...and it was inspired by months of regular visits to chemotherapy. I was truly inspired at the bravery of those beautiful people literally 'fighting for their lives'....
The painting has been sold.
