.....And a Wicked Good carrot cupcake (my favorite!) to help me celebrate....
Today marks the seventh anniversary of the day I decided to take the leap, give up the day job, and follow my bliss; the day I began selling my own work on eBay instead of painting wholesale items for someone else.
It's been a wild ride so far, full of twists and turns and definite ups and downs. Self employment, especially for an artist, can be a risky thing. As precarious as living "paycheck to paycheck" is, it pales in comparison to living from one art piece to the next.
But I wouldn't have it any other way. :)
I've had the privilege of meeting so many wonderful people over the last seven years, and of seeing my work travel all over the globe. I spend my days CREATING, painting what inspires me, and I'm just sooooooooo blessed that others find it worthy of displaying in their homes. This is truly the best "job" in the world, and I can't thank my collectors enough for supporting my work!
So on the heels of last month's birthday cupcake, here's a little anniversary cupcake, hehe....painted as a little nod to this wicked good artist's life. Appropos of the date, it will list tonight at 9PM. :)
Until then, it's back to work....More wicked goodies coming soon!
