When I first started selling my art, I remember being very insecure. It felt so vulnerable and raw to list a painting for sale. The fear of rejection was high. The thought of complete failure was ever present. But I decided it was worthwhile to pursue my dreams even if no one ever bought a single piece. Fortunately for me I got my art online when it was all new to everyone. There wasn’t a whole lot of competition and sales came easily. That was a relief! But what I found was that each and every listing still felt dicey. I was always “sticking my neck out”. You would think that with 10 plus solid years of consistent sales that those feelings would fade. That as an artist I would have complete confidence in my work. That every piece would feel like a winner. It isn’t so. To this day, every time I list new work I am waiting to exhale….
You can help me breath here:
I know this feeling well! Your work is amazing! Breathe!
I did today…we got out to go to the beach…left the work behind. 🙂

Such a cute turtle! Breathe, and enjoy the success of your beautiful work. 🙂
Thank you Priya!
I have two of these fascinating creatures – almost 20 years old – they live outside all year round sleeping through a European winter and appear again in the Spring. They are quietly observant and appreciative of a kind word. Many thanks for all your visits and keep on observing and creating in your own unique way.
Turtles are very fascinating indeed…they live so long! Thank you for stopping by my blog!
