Etsy Account Postings

I did it, I finally quit procrastinating and took the plunge,  I posted three of my collages on Etsy.  It's kinda scary putting yourself out there.   Your art is such a personal thing, it's like you are exposing yourself to the world.  It's not like doing a show or art fair which is a little more intimate.  

It's all about what I enjoy doing now, so what I post to Etsy will change from time to time.  I want to try it all, every time I see a new product or different technique I want to try it.   And there are so many new products on the market that make some of the things I use to do much simpler now. 

I had actually quit creating anything a few years ago.  I  was discouraged, lack of room to work, lack of places to put the work I was creating, lack of sales at the last show,etc.   We had moved into a new home that was quickly decorated, so no need for new curtains, trims or wall decor.   But not creating something was just contributing to my depression.   Then my daughter bought a new house at the coast that needed decorating and the creative juices started up again.  Now the ideas that are coming to mind are endless,  it's like the flood gates have opened.  I'm doing what I love and not worrying about what I'm going to do with the finished product.   It can be my kids legacy.   Isn't original art always more valuable after the artist is gone? 

Back soon
