Great News!!!

Well today has been a great day.
Not only did I have a full morning at the Cottage for our first "Open Day" for 2009 but I also SOLD MY FIRST ARTWORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Am I excited and thrilled....?????????
Bloody oath I am!!!!

I want to thank Nat for being bold and making the purchase.
I dont think that she will ever know how much this sale meant to me.
My journey to paint again has been a very long one, full of avoidance and pain.
This is one of those things that I SHOULD HAVE done, many, many years ago...but found all the excuses under the sun not to.
I spent years umming and arring about it all ( you see....all I ever wanted to do was going to Uni and do a fine arts course when I left school but because of many things I never did ) and now I am so happy that I got off my fat derierre and got into it.
Just goes to show that its never too late to do what you are really passionate about..so what are you waiting for??????

Very good advice and very well said.

Well done on the sale - although it was bound to happen with such lovely work that you do!

i wonder if Nat realises that all your artwork is the 'paint by numbers kind' and you are really just an old witch connecting the dots !!!!
tee hee

BTW- Very proud of you !!!
