I am definitely signing up for an Ebay store today. I figure that will help me be a little more focused about doing artwork and getting it online. Being motivated can be the hardest work of all.

I find the worst thing for me is that I feel like I have to have the house clean and all my ducks in a row before I can "allow" myself the luxury of working on my art. And take my word for it, my house is never going to be totally in order and my ducks are running amok all over the place....quack!

I am an artist but it took me 58 years to be comfortable making that statement. Why? I think part of the reason was my mistaken belief that without a fancy art degree what I created was slightly less than worthy of recognition or acclaim. It was on beginning to study my family while doing genealogy that I realized that I came from a long line of very artistic people. I had acquired gifts at birth that I was squandering because of fear. Ahhh the unknown. That vast dark chasm that looms just ahead, daring me to step closer to the edge. Today I close my eyes, take a deep breath and leap into...into....the life of an artist!
