. . . where was I?
Oh, yeah, I opened my etsy store and announced it yesterday; then I joined twitter, so you will all have to go check out my occasional answer to "what are you doing?" Then I rearranged my blog site, scanned some art, made some art, and emailed announcements to everyone I know, and some people I don't know. My sister Ann in Detroit faved my etsy shop, so I checked to see if she had sold anything, but she had just bought. She is a gifted and compulsive knitter and should try to sell her wares on etsy. My mother-in-law called after receiving my email announcement. . . she loved my flickr pictures of the farm. My sister Hildegard called and told me she had emailed my announcement to her decorator friends in Destin, FL. Suffice it to say, I spent too much time on the computer.
Last night, after settling down to finish reading my book, with the TV on for company, I hear a commercial for a "Starving Artist Sale" this weekend. "Sofa-sized" original oil paintings as low as $19; many smaller works as low as $7; and nothing over $59. WTF??? How is that possible? I may go just to see what a $59 4' x 6' original oil painting looks like. Anyone know? No wonder they're starving.
