Trying something new

"Iris Field," 24" x 48", oil on canvas
One of my paintings on Etsy

My daughter, Erin, just moved home this week from Savannah GA. She graduated in 2005 from SCAD with a degree in Illustration.

She's always nagging me to get back to my painting because I could be making money. (easier said than done).

Anyway, she mentioned that she likes to buy (from Etsy) and many of her artist friends use Esty as a way to show and sell their work. I have heard of it and have seen other artists mention it on their blogs and websites, but never got around to doing anything about it.

Since my work with a web company is slowing down quite a bit, I have a bit more time to do this kind of thing.

So...I did it...I've added a mini Etsy shop right under my profile pic to the right. Direct link is

Other than that, Christmas is 6 days away and I've only gotten 4 presents purchased. I have never been so far behind in my entire life as I am this year.

If, I don't post before the holidays...may all of you have a safe Christmas and Happy New Year.
