Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I spent a very quiet evening at home last night, painting a chicken. :-)

LaFonda, 8" x 8", acrylic on canvas

Wow! T! You are super talented!!!

I know a woman who collects everything (decorative pieces) that has to do with chicken and roosters...

Are you going to start selling your animal art? I think it would be awesome. I love it!

Happy New Year!
Cheers,
Nat

Thanks! I think I'd like to try selling them but I don't know if I should set up a separate Etsy shop (and if so, what to call it?), and I don't know how to price them... I'm mulling these things over. :-) Feel free to chime in!

I love this painting. You could make a living doing this. Who knew? (besides me, I mean)

I think your pricing is fine (I just had a look at your new Etsy shop) and it's a good thing to keep your artwork separate from your jewelry.

You could also sell greeting cards (prints of your originals), etc...

Did you take painting lessons? Your work really looks professional!

Thanks for the feedback, Nat. I have thought about possibly selling prints, cards, etc. down the line. We'll see how it goes. :-)

I've never had any formal training in painting, but I've always loved experimenting with different arts and crafts.
