This week on Etsy

I have been adding some art works to my Etsy shop recently.  Trying to develop my new art style comes at a cost, and the dog walking day job is not making enough after the necessary eating thing is out of the way.  Extra paper both professional and practice comes at a cost, and reference books to learn from all mount up too.  I have lots of great comments but little else so far.
I quite liked the above painting, so intend to offer this up as original art work too, alongside the prints.  I only do 5 each of prints as I do so much art and hope to have so much more to offer in the future.
I did have a big downer this week when I made the HUGE mistake of showing a family member my art, should have known better.  I can take critisism and dislike from the public fine, but just a little support from close family I would have thought would be freely given? how wrong I was.  Seems if you do not draw and paint like one of the master's you cannot call yourself an artist.  Luckily I have some good friends, and some great 'Instagram' followers who gave me a lot of support to drag me out of the place I fell into.
After a weekend so far of family, and friends in need I am about to go pick up those pencils and hopefully paints and get started on this weeks wonders.

Thank you if you have read and viewed this far.

On the right of page is a little showcase for my Etsy shop, just one click will take you there.


  1. I really love your new art Lynda and wish you much success with your Etsy shop. Your new customers are out there and they just need to find you :-)

    If you create then you are an artist! I can see the difference in the art you create now and how far you've come. Remember when you didn't like drawing faces? I'm so impressed (and a bit jealous I didn't complete the art course I signed up for) and you should be proud. Don't be discouraged, keep creating and keep moving forward :-)

  2. thank you Jen, so kind of you to say and to take the time to comment x
