Sorry I've been away so long. With Christmas sales and getting that awful bug that's been going around, I've been out of commission for a while. But I did start on a new drawing and I'm making some New Years resolutions.
Last year I made a resolution to draw 100 birds before the end of the year. Didn't manage that, but did manage to turn my drawings into a new business! I probably drew 30-40 birds, but also drew other creatures, such as mice, rabbits and squirrels, then went on to llamas and alpacas! I will continue this year to draw my favorite animals and turn them into giclees and try to add one new outlet every month! So far I have my giclees in 5 shops and I have 3 contacts to turn into clients in January so far. Or maybe one in January and the other two in February!
I want to create some drawings specifically for "Valentine's Day" and Easter, but try to keep them generically very "spring" to extend their life on the shelf. I have started a sweet mouse inside a rose covered tea cup and I'll post that this week.
Happy New Year to everyone and I wish you continued success in all your artistic pursuits this year!

This is Kate Harpers blog and I'm thrilled to be included. Everyone that knows me on EDM, (Every Day Matters, a collective of artists who draw, paint or sketch every day), would you be so kind as to leave a comment on her blog about my card?? I'd love to get some greeting card deals going with some of her publishers!!! Thanks so much.
It's because of EDM that I even got to here. I've only been blogging back and forth with you guys for under a year, learned to draw birds (LOL!), now I have my art giclees in 4 stores (going on 6!) and it's all because of the inspiration I received here. You are all so talented and great. You keep me motivated. Keep drawing and painting every day!
Hope everyone is having an awesome Holiday Season so far. Time to make the donuts!! Er, make the cards!!!! LOL
