Hard to say good-bye...

I watched 'The Secret' and I believed, long before I viewed the film, in the 'laws of attraction'. How else to 'explain' why the 'have's' always seem to get more...and the 'have-nots' never seemed to ever have anything?
Certainly the 'have's' always seemed to be happier than the 'have-nots'.

I have long watched a few select artists on eBay sell pretty much whatever they listed...even the 'crap'. And, I wondered why some of (what I considered to be) my best work, just didn't seem to 'click'...I still don't know the answer...unless it has something to do with the 'laws of attraction'.
I mean..even the 'select' artists on eBay are able to take advantage of the eBay 'glitch' that keeps them on the first page of newly listed paintings, just by continuing to 'revise' throughout the day. Heck, it doesn't take anytime at all for my paintings to be 'buried' by their constant 'revising'.

I certainly don't begrudge anyone their success...it just would be nice to have a little of that myself.

Perhaps I'm just a little 'down' today. I'm just not sure how much longer I can 'hang-on' before I have to 'throw in the towel'. I'm searching for the positive...but it is, somehow, eluding me right now.

Here's a little video featuring 'tiny art' (aceo's and small canvas pieces) by Charlene. Hope you enjoy the 'film'.

I live to paint..and...I paint to live.


...it is true. I can't imagine doing anything with my life except to paint. Sometimes that's a good thing...when my paintings are selling well. Sometimes not...when I wonder if I'll ever sell another painting.

I know that I have a huge problem photographing my paintings...after four years I still haven't mastered it. And, unfortunately some of (what I consider to be) my best paintings don't photograph well...and, no matter what I do, there is no way to sell those online. They end up in a gallery.

Anyway...all of that said...I did up a bio at some point, though I can't really remember when or why. I decided to go ahead and post it here...it kind of sums up who I am...in a nutshell.

The Time Really Does Fly


I really thought I had posted an entry for this blog just a few days ago...imagine my surprise to discover it has been more than a month ago!
It isn't easy being a 'starving artist'...especially when all income is derived from selling art!
I can't imagine doing anything else...
