Painting Full-Time has published a new blog, expanding on advice from myself and another artist who was featured in their magazine, about how we made the transition to full-time artist. For those who have considered this possibility for yourself, maybe this article will be helpful. In any case, you may find the thought process interesting.


The photo above is my “Thinking Corner” in my art studio. A lot of truly deep thoughts happen there! I’ve been reorganizing my house (and with it, a little fresh decorating); and it was my art studio’s turn to get in on the action. Some chalk-painting was required…of existing furniture, frames, and so on. Consequently, I haven’t been painting…or posting…much in the last month in the way of “fine art.” But stay with me. Yesterday my husband took me on a drive in the country, and the lighting was just perfect for some amazing inspirational scenes, which I trust will soon turn into paintings.

Happy Painting! Happy Art Collecting!
