I think I improved the painting from the last post. What do you think?
I have joined Daily Paintworks, an on-line gallery where artists sell their work. I haven't posted any paintings yet. I feel some trepidation about it. It's another new step for me. I felt the same way when I started this blog. Now I am very comfortable with the blogging process and fairly comfortable knowing people are watching. I know part of why I am comfortable is because I pretty much know at the present time who my Watchers are. Even though the blog has been publicly viewable for all this time, not too many people know it exists. Once I'm posting a painting on Daily Paintworks, there is the potential for many people I don't know yet to view my blog. Which would be a good thing. If I want to start selling my art and joining the on-line art community. Which I do. But I think it's fair to say I feel some trepidation. Maybe I shouldn't admit to my fear publicly, since new people may be here soon to read this. Maybe I should try to act confident even though I don't feel confident yet. Maybe I will delete this post someday. For for now, dear Watchers, I know that those of you who read this in the next day or so are my supporters and cheerleaders, and I know I can say these things to you.
I waited to start blogging until I felt "pregnant" with it, until I had a feeling that I couldn't start soon enough. I joined Daily Paintworks because I also felt "pregnant" with it. Should I wait for the same feeling to hit me before I post anything on Daily Paintworks, or should I just DO IT?!
There are so many little paintings all over my house and studio, I would like to start selling some of them. I have one that is intended for a friend that I can't even find! She picked it out from this blog when I was with her in NYS a couple of weeks ago, and I can't even find it. I wonder if other artists ever "lose" paintings. I know it's here somewhere.....
