I've had my studio ready for painting for a few days now and I haven't had the energy or time to use it. I feel like I've recovered from all upgrades I made in my home. Maybe tonight!

If I do, it will be paint splashing fun, nothing to serious. I have no idea what I want to paint. It won't matter.

What's everybody else up to?

Good morning Dick...and everyone else.

The flea market I'm in is moving to a new building. It's a really nice building. I get along really well with the owner of the Flea Market and she is letting me rent a really great area in the new building for the same cost I now pay. My paintings will be on the left wall just as you come into the building. WOW! I'm really excited about that. I took down my ebay ads because I find that the Flea Market does a lot better than ebay and it's kind of a pain to have to mail the paintings. Also because if I have the paintings on ebay I can't have them at the flea market and I'm running low on paintings. Never thought that would happen. When I get the new display put up I'll post a picture of it.

So today I'll probably paint....who am I kidding saying 'probably'....of course I'll be painting today. It's kind of like saying today I'll probably breath.

Hi all. Not much going on today, just had my Microsoft Excel college course and did a bunch of homework for it too. Seeing a friend later so I probably won't get to painting today. That's awesome Terry!

Hey Butterfly, I use Excel almost on a daily basis. I imagine they try to teach you every little thing that it's capable of and probably more than I'll ever know. If you have any questions or want to share something cool, let me know.

I am so behind on Word and Excel now. They have advanced so much since I used them on a regular basis, I'm sure I would be lost now.

I need to figure out if art is going to continue to just be a hobby, or if I plan to make some $$. I am so weird about my pieces...never sure if they are good enough, plus I don't really have a signature style.

You know,I noticed something about this country:when someone is having a hobby or something, is like is not true enough if there are no money involved.I mean you are not enough of a hobbyist painter if you don't sell or you are not a valid toy designer if you don't sell.Seriously everything is money,money,money here.Can't you just enjoy the ride just for the sake of the ride?
And just as a side note van Gogh sold only ONE piece in his entire life but I doubt anyone thinks he's not an artist.

You are so right @Asancta ... I give away the majority of my art, and don't have a problem doing it.

I just get so overwhelmed with what I'm doing, and then my brain goes haywire. Lol

It's funny, everyone around me is more interested in me selling my art than I am!
