Okay, so I should probably explain a bit better...Lately I've just been feeling sort of stuck in the heavy mud. Like I'm not doing enough to push myself. And then I was just surfing along and came across this artist who totally blew me away. Seriously. I felt like a faint little candle and my flame was just snuffed out on a whim. And I was hiding in the corner feeling little and sheepish and tiny.

But that feeling was quickly replaced. I'm a sucker for reverse psychology. Really. If someone says I can't, I just try harder and do it anyway. So that's where I am now. I've been challenged. I've seen the next step. I'm going for it.

I've been thinking a lot about self-promotion. About ways to get out there to get more work. There are a lot of websites that let you put little portfolios or blurbs. I'm not sure if they work or if they're just fluff, but I've added my name to them. Plotting...

Here's a few of the sites: Coroflot Creative Hotlist (affiliated with CA) Portfolios.com Art Wanted

So, at least it's a start. You create your own luck, right?

p.s. Linda, who asked for a print of the jazz image: that's no problem, just email me and we can talk about it.

p.s.s I'm thinking about selling prints here on the site real soon. Any particulars you'd like to see offered?
