Butterflies are gone! SOLD~~


Sold all these butterfly paintings today ... all 9 of them! Which means... most of that work is now placed.

It's always a thrill to sell art-- and I've been doing more of it this week than before. Hopefully-- that's a sign that things are beginning to change economically. It's been such a long-haul to get through this downturn recession as an artist. I've tried to think outside the box... and do everything I can do to remain an artist.

So... here's to a great day!!

WE all need more days like this in our artistic lives!

Congratulations, Carol! It's always a boost to sell the work you've created (but you'll always be an artist, even if you never sell another piece - heaven forbid!!!).

I am always surprised to see where the photos we make together show up, and how you work with them! I remember thinking when we took these, what is she going to do with this?

Thank you Christiane... it's wonderful to have sales... mostly because it enables me to do more work!
