on my mind.

right now.

as the anniversary of this little blog draws near (Friday, to be exact), i'm growing a bit introspective about what i have accomplished over the last three hundred and sixty-five days and what i think i want to do with those still to come.

although when i started painting again a year ago, i never anticipated actually thinking about creating art as a full(ish) time gig. now, though, i am planning on how exactly to make that happen.

it's exciting, liberating, a bit scary, though deciding to make art, to do art, to be art seems completely natural to me. a lot more normal than so many of the decisions i've made, to be perfectly honest.

so, that is what is on my mind these days, dear-hearts: how to make it work.

i'm open to any suggestions.



  1. you just started a year ago? wow, I was under the impression that painting and creating was your full time job - so you can imagine how happy it makes me to hear it soon will be! do you have an etsy shop? i am furnishing a new apartment, and I need some art!

  2. you are so sweet to say that!! i still hold down a 20-30 hour per week job and teach 7 yoga classes per week, but i make time for art every day. and this is so important to me.
    i *do* have an etsy shop! my shop name is Kellyloveswhales, or you can link from my blog (right hand column).
    best wishes furnishing your new place!! that is the best part, right?

  3. You can do it girlie...I am no expert, but with your talent, kindness, and positive outlook you can turn your passion into your bread and butter. I am not just saying that either...

  4. oh you have a lovely blog!

    i think if you love what you do, work hard at it and never give up, and your intent is good, i think you will do just fine ;)

  5. The studio shot is great and I also believed that you had been painting for years!

  6. I'd love to know too, but I think you are taking a brave and wonderful step. I'm excited to hear about your process and provide insight! You can do it!

  7. I agree 100% with mrs. french on this one. You can you anything girlie :)

  8. thank you ALL for the loveliest of lovely comments. you are too sweet to me!!
    mrs. french, you are such a dear.

    Laura, thanks so much! i have been painting for some time, i just took about 5 years away from it to go to law school and work crazy hours in my first few law jobs. making my way back!!
