Creativity is a Blast!

I am really enjoying this creative burst that I'm in, in fact it has sparked a possible new venture in my life... selling my work, but until I can get started on that, I have to build up an inventory to post. However, I have begun a piece for a friend who has requested a dragonfly. This canvas will be different than my last, as I am building on techniques and ideas, so I'm curious how it will turn out. The inventory building will begin after this current piece.

I am not going to make a practice of taking requests; I think that would be too much for me time wise as well as stressing about meeting the customer's expectations LOL, so I will stick to creating on a whim and posting the finished products for sale (on etsy) at least that's the tentative plan.

I'm excited about the prospect, yet fearful. I've never attempted to sell my paintings, or have any sort of online store like etsy or ebay, so yeah, there is alot of stuff going on in my head right now BUT it seems to be helping me through this depression, but NOT the insomnia LOL I can't get my thoughts to turn off, and I can't seem to put a work in progress aside. I absolutely have to finish it once one has began. I'm going to have to discipline myself and set a strict time limit each night. I can already hear a little voice in my head arguing with me like a child: "But...but... I HAVE to finish it first! I don't want to go to bed!" I can just visualize my child self stomping her foot and having a tantrum.

Speaking of bedtime... I best get to it!  It's already late (sigh).


  1. I know the frustration of wanting to finish a project and still needing sleep! I think its wonderful that you are going to put some of your art out there!
