I sold a painting, another one, was so thrilled. Certainly helps with the bills. Just finished this little pastel, had to take another photo as realised the poor cats ears weren’t finished in the first photo, but by that time it was heading towards night fall so is pretty dark. So popped them both on. Am two thirds of the way through a peacock, hopefully will get to finish it tomorrow, and will pop it on. Later tonight am going to have a look at some more art sites on here. Some are really special. Will get some names of some and put them on here for reference for people who want to have a look also.

Well finally got back to my blog.

I’ve just been in the kitchen trying to clean a saucepan, from last nights vegies, tried last night but then decided would leave it soak awhile. I burnt the vegies, ahhhh, put them on, got stuck into some art and nearly set the fire alarm off.  Have to buy a timer VERY soon I think.

I didn’t do any art for a long time, but have been back into it the last few weeks. Tonight I am going to try some oil painting, something have never been much good at before, but must admit only tried it twice, thought they were so disastrous I never tried again.  I must say I love the feel of oils and playing around with it.

I sold a couple of paintings, was such a thrilling moment. I also joined etsy and have put some on there for sale. Though am not even getting many views yet let alone sales.  Takes time to grow apparently. Later tonight will pop a couple more paintings I have only recently done on here.  I’ve been into the pastels a bit lately and am running out of paper, so hope to sell another painting soon, fingers crossed. I really understand where they got the saying “starving artists” from.  We much prefer to buy supplies.  (No, not really starving, guess I like my food too much).

Don’t know what its like in your neck of the woods, but the last few days have been cold, especially the nights. My heater gave up a week ago, so have put the oven on for awhile to add some warmth. Brrrr. Now if only I can get the dog away from it, he loves hogging all the heater when its on to.

Now  I’m going to have some unburnt (I hope) tea, and hopefully start on a masterpiece, haha.
