I’m selling my paintings! On etsy!

http://www.etsy.com/shop/CraftingOwl < So, I am selling my paintings on etsy.  It’s basically an after effect of cleaning my room out.  I have no room for some things, and well, yeah I guess you could say that one lady’s junk is another lady’s treasure?  NOT that my paintings are junk.  I just don’t want them.  I see them everyday and think they might brighten the world and space of someone else for a change.  So check em out!!!

Make your own rules

Here’s what I usually think a “Real” artist should be (note: I really only apply this to myself)

1. Studies art technique

2. Loves the great old masters

3. Is gaga over their own art, 24/7

4.  Is inspired, 24/7

None of these things are really me.  But you know what?  I still like creating art.  I like to express my emotions with paint, I like to cartoon in pen, I listen to music while I do it.  Doing these things centers me.  I usually don’t put the effort in to get REALLY good at figure drawing, I wish I did but I don’t, and I do alright.  I get excited about crafty projects like kits and workshops about anything and everything I don’t normally do like pottery, stone carving, sculpture, bookbinding, art journaling, etc.  I don’t always enjoy making art, sometimes I am soo bored doing it, so I stop and do something else.  But I am an artist, and this is my unique DNA.  I am not like anyone else, just like you.
