t has been 7 months since my last blog post. In the past i had a very regular monthly post and perhaps that may come again but for now it is when the feeling strikes. I love that i have the register of those posts from April 2014-today!!!!
I just had the best month of sales ever ! OCTOBER. I sold 5 paintings in one month and several were very large paintings.
That makes my heart so happy . I have recently bought several new canvases and some new paint. With regards to paint, i have been on a mission for the last year to use up old paint and i have limited myself in terms of buying new materials. I am in a mood to declutter in general.
That being said, i am ready to go on a major paint shopping spree soon. !!! My hope is to get into my studio a lot in the next couple of months . It is hard to believe the holidays are almost upon us but for us the holidays are pretty simple considering.

It is daunting and overwhelming and feels like a college course!!! So that is where i am putting a ton of energy at the moment. We have a pile of assignments. Overall , i am confident we are taking the right steps while at the same time it pulls on my heart so deeply. It is very hard!
This week i revisited a couple of my first paintings on FB. i took my Be Brave , Be Bold painting which is definitely a classic painting for me as it was possibly my first. i digitally randomly edited it and loved how it came out. It is kind of crazy/spacy/out there but.......I will share it here.
I am so amazed by the fall that has gone on for forever.... My favorite time of year. There is a feeling of winter on the doorstep. I hope that you all are healthy and as always thank you for your support.
May we all Be Brave and Be Bold .
