I made my first sale on Etsy on Friday and dropped the painting off at the post office yesterday! I am so excited to share my painting with its new owner. The painting that was sold is my "writer's block" piece. I was experiencing a slump at the time and was unsure of what to paint or how to start it. I was speaking with another artist that mentioned when he is having the same problem, he'll tape a playing card on his board and paint it life size. He said he enjoyed the exercise because it's a 2D object and simple in color and components. So I took a black and white pen and taped it to the wall and painted. This was a fun little exercise and helped me get back into the swing of things. I am so happy to sell my first painting and to share my work with someone else.
