Etsy Shop Open !




No, I haven't been resting up from the Challenge! Busy opening the Etsy Shop . It's changed a lot (for the better).  And that means typing and filling in every little concern for the customer.
 The shop, yourself, the item of course, photos, explanations covering shipping, shop policies, payments, on and on.. Well it's open to the public..  I've already sold a painting.. and they are all originals, no prints..

One of the problems about trying to sell on a blog is this....
Think about it ....Everyone who visits your blog is an artist, and if they are like me have tons of artwork of their own.. . I paint for my self as I found I cannot not paint.. if that makes any sense. 
The art exhibits and art shows are few and far between where I live.

If you 'd like to see the shop, click on the Etsy button on the right sidebar.
I've just started by listing about a dozen small paintings, all 
( I think) from the challenge and I offer them at very reasonable prices..  There will be more added all the time.. as yes, I intend to paint a lot more... BJ
