|No. 15 She Speaks For Herself|
I had this painting in mind where I could make a hoodie and build the texture up and use some of my doodles and bright orange and anyway.. today I got to bring her to life. I wish you could see the original - I think all the textures and colors are scrumptious.
AND GUESS WHAT's IN THis BOX???
MY FIRST PRINTS!! real prints photographed by a professional photographer and printed on archival paper with archival inks!!!
Kelly Rae Roberts also did me (I'm sure not just me) a huge favor and put her e-book on sale for 24 hours and I grabbed it up and have been devouring the generous information she shares about how to go about this whole confusing art business.
This is not an easy course to navigate. People invest big bucks and lots of years to learn these things in art school and I'm learning that I have to earn my way into this world and do the work if I'm going to be a success (in my 70s! remember).
Even though I love learning new things- I do get whiny about the HARD work of it sometimes. I WANT TO GO TO MY GRAVE and not be a lazy thinker and letting everyone else do my thinking for me. But I get that it gets harder. And we give up our power slowly but surely if we don't fight like CRAZY WARRIOR WOMEN to be strong and brave, and forever learners. If you're in your 50s or beyond, can I hear an AMEN?
