Hi everyone! Today was a busy day. Besides painting full time for my shows, we also do freelance painting for a wholesaler. I was so excited when Shiela of Seasons of thy Heart posted a photo of a pumpkin plate on her blog a while ago. Yep! It was mine and the first time I saw it on the net. Today I delivered a batch of Photo frames I painted and hopefully they will make the cut.(although they are more wedding style frames-not prim)
I am also hoping to have my artwork published and today took the first steps to connect with a publishing company. They handle a lot of the big time artists that you will see in prim stores(greeting cards, calendars,etc. ) I reserved 5 paintings to submit for consideration. It will be a big step if we are accepted. Cross your fingers!!
Other than that, it is finally time to get back to my daily schedule. We picked up lumber today and will start marking it and painting tomorrow. Most of my folk art is painted on wood and highly distressed to look old. It is a labor intensive process but works well.I need to get my blog “pretty primmed “ up so I can begin to post photos for you to see. The paintings I am known for are all one-of-a-kind,signed,and dated.
I can’t wait til my blog is fully set up—got my first comment today from Patti—thanks sooooo much! My son is setting up the blog and right now has his hands full at work. So, if you ARE reading my blog—please be patient—-it WILL be prim, it WILL have photos, and I’ll do my best to make it interesting for you all!! I’ve been reading all your blogs for so long I feel I already know YOU—now I have to let you know ME!!!
prim blessings, Jan
