I just created the painting that you see above today. I have not taken any Art Therapy classes but I can attest to the calming effect of painting. I'm creating new pieces as often as possible in order to sell them so that I can stay away from the food stamp lines. After working since I was 14 years old with a paper route, yeah, you might need to Google that, I have not been employed now for a little over four years. Still in the house that we've rented since 1999. We've paid more in rent than the current value of this house. How did that happen? There are many talented artists creating many beautiful pieces. I'm hoping that the art I create is accessible to those who not only love it, but will actually buy it, or prints of it. That's why I started creating the Greeting Cards, to make my art more affordable, and easy to share. If you want to buy just one card, let me know by email.
Yeah, so Facebook changes its photo pages, and it seems to allow more room for unrequested, unapproved, and frankly unwanted advertisements. I have returned here to see about creating pages on which to display paintings for sale.
*Wait a minute. Does every one who picks up a brush soon think that their paintings are valuable? Just saying.*
There ain't no such thing as a free lunch. So it is said. After all, my reason for using a free web service is to minimize my costs, & maximize my profits. I would not be adverse to paying these folks a commission of 10 to 20 %.
Anyway, if you stop here and browse, please leave a message, comment, something so that I know I'm getting hits. If you do not see anything you like, make a suggestion. I take requests. I may not act on them, but I take them.
Be Blessed. - steve
I saw that a friend, an artist on facebook, had created a site for her art here on weebly. I have clicked so many buttons now, I think I've done the same. I am not sure where this is all headed, but I know that if I continue to spread good news about good things that more good should come to me. So, yes, this is a selfish venture after all. It started out, or so I thought, not about me, but the reality is...well, you know. Visit http://www.etsy.com/shop/prdad007 to buy my art.
Visit www.sprlive.com on Sundays, 6-9 pm EST, to hear me on internet radio The Cafe'.
