Funny enough, it seems my last post might have been some kind of chisel to get through my thick skull.
You may have noticed a new button at the top of my page labeled 'shop'. Well, I started doing these little watercolor doodles for fun. It started as a way for me to be like, "I wanna paint! I don't know what to paint..." A few got posted on Instagram, and I received a handful of messages suggesting I open an Etsy shop! So I did!
Y'all. I've already sold three paintings. I'm selling hand painted 'prints' (i.e. originals) because honestly? This is a lot of fun and gives me something to work on every day. Hopefully, I get to a point where I need to do prints, but for now, this is much more fun for me. People can even commission this way, and I can whip 'em up right quick!
For example, my friend Cynthia (yo girl!) posted these two really cute photos of her kids at the lake today. I'm in the (very long) process of putting together a little box of gifties for her and her fam, so I decided, "Hey! I can add a piece for them!" When I saw these posts, I wanted to sketch it out right away.
I'm having so much fun, and I'm really enjoying the fact that other people are enjoying them too. I never thought anyone would want any of these, but I put it out there anyway.
I'd, of course, appreciate it if you cruised through my shop. It's a little bare bones right now, but I'm making new stuff every day, and re-painting pieces that have sold.
Cheers to just going for it!
P.S. I made a bomb sangria. I'm cheers-ing with that. I would post a recipe, but I pretty much just threw a bunch of shit in there until it was delicious. And extra boozy.
