I hope everybody had a Happy Christmas. I can't believe how fast this year has gone! Back in January I wanted to paint as much as possible so that I could end up with at least 6 pictures i could have printed up as cards, with the hope of offering them to a few shops. I achieved better than I hoped with 33 paintings finished and 14 cards for sale in two shops along with framed signed mounted prints too and a third shop selling my photographic work. I also tried online sales, my Etsy didn't do well so i wrapped that up, keeping my cafe press that has made sales and has a dozen or so followers.
I am pleased with my small beginnings and hope to build on it this year. For some strange reason I started learning to read Japanese and hope this year to continue on into intermediate level. This new year I hope to try my hand at 3D, having got poser for Xmas and use it as the base for my piantings. My other resolution is to go to the gym as sitting at the computer painting hasn't been good for my bum! Does anyone else have any resolutions for the coming year?
