At 100 likes, there will be a raffle for a free sketch!
So sorry for the inactivity, but I've been working extra hard on...well, everything
lately. In addition to taking on commissions (which has taken off surprisingly well - thank y'all so much!), I have also set up a vendor table at a local outdoor market. I'm selling chainmaille and wire wrapped jewelry there every Saturday, as well as taking pet portrait commissions and orders for prints. Phew! It has been so much work getting everything ready. I was really pleased to discover that I have more inventory that I realized - and I even made two sales on my first day at the market.
I'm really trying to make a go of this "being an artist" thing. It's hard and we're broke, but my husband and family are being really supportive. Hopefully things will only continue to improve. Pet portraits are harder than expected, though. I think it's because I've focused on painting just horses for so long that trying to paint fluffy puppies is incredibly hard to wrap my brain around. I've got wonderful inspiration from the oh-so-talented AmandaDrage
, though. Sigh...she makes it look so easy!
Now I know better!
So...yeah. Commissions are still open, but new ones will have to go on the waiting list. Makes me feel rather proud to say that.
You can see prices and examples here:
Commission Slots Available! *Reduced Prices*Reason: I was laid off. So was my husband. He got a new job for less money; I'm still unemployed and we need money for all those things like rent, car payments, and food for us and the animals. Because of this, I have reduced my prices. I will accept commissions for just about anything (nothing obscene), but I specialize in horses and humans.
All prices are in USD. If you are paying in another currency, please remember to convert via current exchange rates!
