It feels so great!

It felt awesome to get some painting time in this past weekend! Oh, how I wish I could do it more often. I'm so happy when I can paint for fun and just see what happens with it. I'm so envious of full-time artists/crafters......but my little paypal account will not pay the bills at this point. So off to work I go..AGAIN! (I know, I know........I'm thankful for a job in these tough times!)

This one is titled 'Many Moons Ago...'

We had a fun day at the Art & Wine walk on Saturday. It was fun to see various artists and as usual, I'd love to have purchased something but I tend to suffer from extreme sticker shock! Sales, such as framed abstract watercolor paintings originally 650.00, on sale for 350. 00, still couldn't tempt me enough. I guess for now, I'll just admire and continue to learn and grow :)

Have an awesome week everyone!

Wow... sticker shock is right! Wouldn't that be amazing to sell our art for $650!? Love this Many Moons Ago piece, it's beautiful Darla! :)

Darla it was so nice to *hear* your voice this morning.
I have been such a bad blogger buddy, please forgive me.

I adore the daisy painting. So sweet and the black and white on the sides really pops it.
I went to your shop and looked around.
I love your work Darla, it makes my heart smile very wide.
I hearted your store too!!
Thank you for popping over, it was so great to *see* you.
You look great!!
Have a wonderful week.
Love and hugs.

Jennifer.....for sure! I can't imagine putting a price like that on my work. Maybe someday~we can hope, right?
Marie, thank you so much! I'm right there with you on the bad blog buddy wagon. I think summer really has me going in too many directions and I have no focus!
As for my shop, I had almost given up and wasn't even thinking about it much anymore. I even let things expire. Then...out of the blue, I've had some exciting sales in just the past 2 months. That helps so much to get me back on track and creating again. will be snowman painting time I imagine :)
Take care!
