The Plunge


I've taken it. Yesterday I posted on my Etsy shop that I DO COMMISSIONED PORTRAITS from LIFE and/or PHOTOS. There. It's done. Feel free to spread the word. There's no need for me to be ashamed of this (I keep telling myself, I keep telling myself...). I need to make a living. I like to draw. I like to draw people. People like my drawings of people. I create something that brings people some joy. It's as simple as that. I may never wind up in the art history books. Who cares???????
We'll see where this takes me.

Hi. Just stopping by to check out your blog. Is that all your art? It's awesome and very pretty. I used to be able to draw before I had my son but now I can't do anything. :( Makes me sad. xD
