I have a few followers now. These are people who inspired me to paint, I'm following their blogs, and we share on FB and other group sites. They are all wonderful people and exceptional artists. Each time I look at their work, it makes me want to keep improving my skill. I purchased the paints and paper in November,
and started out w/a bang. Painted a few for my home, and received some positive feedback. One artist
told me I was ready now to sell. So, I began to sell dog portraits on a simple request from a friend, she asked do you think you can paint this picture. I said sure, and that was the start of a very rewarding passtime. I have painted a few gifts for family, and have sold four dog portraits in the first month of painting!
Now, I know my prices are very low, but I figure people are paying me to practice and I'm getting some of my supply money back. As my skill improves I'll charge more. As a follower to my blog, I would appreciate any feedback you can give me - and if you think the work is horrible, I won't be offended.
THANK YOU - new followers, each of you are a inspiration to me and many other inspiring artists.
