Now I can breathe

This is one of my favorite Trees and it went to gallery.

This is one of my favorite Trees and it went to gallery.

I’ve been busy these days and I mean B U S Y. Sometimes I felt such uncomfort that I wanted to escape from my own life. But I stayed in and everything is now calming down. My goals were to open my shops, finish Christmas cards, finish some designs for new patterns and finally take some of my work to the gallery which contact me in May (oh, yes, it took really long). An I did: I opened CafePress shop (I love clutch bags, flip flops and Kindle sleeves), Etsy shop and Zazzle shop though this one is still in progress (but I love those shoes and necklace). My darling and I finished our Christmas cards and they are waiting in printing house as we speak. This is the result …

And I also did manage to do some watercolor art …Some of these ended up on Xmas cards, some are still waiting to give them final form. It was very creative fall I guess.

My working space this fall.

Now is a time to do some learning. I enrolled these course (one is going on right now!!!)

I love those painting classes. I am a little behind :)...

I am not so active on Get Your Paint On, but I am hoping to post my work in progress today. And I can’t wait to start those e-courses. I am an artist and by defolt I am finding out every day that my marketing skills are so poor I should be arrested :)))

I don't know from whom she inherited so much selfconfidence. But love for magazines is definitley mine fault :).

And one big thing is approaching. Sofijas 1st birthday! Yay. She is turning to very self confident (I wonder from whom she inherited this), funny and beautiful lady. This year went so quickly and I can hardly believe that last year on this date I was hardly moving around because of my big pregnant belly.

I think I told you everything in short. Now it’s time to take some me time and paint that large canvas which is our GYPO assignment. And maybe, just maybe I’ll show you the final result :). Wish you happy weekend.

    I am so excited about learning business–heart/art business–from artists, having mentors who know the business of art, and coherts who are as serious about this as I am!
