I sort of didn't mention that I created an Etsy shop recently. I wonder, because it took me SO LONG to finally get around to it, if I was in shock that it actually existed?
And actually, I'm mostly terrified of promoting my artwork. And I think I'm totally in denial that I don't know a thing about selling art or telling you about my artist-y-ness. I don't know where to begin. So, as with most things I don't have the answers to, I go underground and only come forward when magical osmosis has occured and I can put words to it!! No time for that psychosis today. No, Sir.
I think it's obvious that I'm trying to come out of the closet, here. I sneakily put thumbnbails in my sidebar a couple of weeks ago, when only originals were listed, with the use of their clever "mini" widget. But now, I feel I have to shout this part to overcome my fear....and give my declaration center stage:
Whew! I said it. And now I can go put my head under a doorway and wait for the sky to fall, eh?

This guy is the latest addition, finished just before Ivy was born. Each painting has a long blurb about the figure in it and it's associated medicine and transformative qualities.
I want to thank everyone who has encouraged me to get a move-on and share my work. I feel absolutely surrounded by love and support!
That being said, I will be showing Returning for the First Annual Squam Art Show in New Hampshire this September at Artstream Gallery. Thank you, LIZ, for doing this. Wow. I'm so thrilled to be a part of it!
And there you have it!
