Bravo for the output
I must email you a pic of a wonderful collage I have in my home. A reclining woman with strategic flowers. It was made by a friend with arthritic hands. A dear friend of 80 who in these  weeks was given 4 weeks notice to find a new home.   I am so far from her that I can be of no practical use which is very frustrating.

This is why I am writing instead of painting right now
even though I yearn to paint... writing is making the money for me right now.

 Congratulations on your sales.

Your description in the second paragraph makes me wish I could see the painting.

That's amazing!
my friend in Pa has a site that he sells folk art on.  Any interest?  I could put you in touch with him.

Re: Right now, get a headshot with a blurb in a 5X8 format

majroj, I could get vogue to make a collage of me !!! Bactrian camel....actually, I was thinking of Chac mool....putting my head on his reclining figure....incense or heart filled bowl in my hands......

But, what a wonderful suggestion. I will do as you say. Vista printing is offering me large postcards for free, right now....for all my purchasing there. I shall make them of myself...sort of.

Of course, the creative writing that is required may be too much for me. Talking about my real self, not a happy project.

I have more fun being benzinha and writing as my mother would.

Re: what I like to do is "collage"

vogue, I love collage. In a way, it is how I paint. I take many pictures and then take parts of them to make one painting.

The background building, the plant on the wall, the main character, the secondary character, the dog on the ground or the thing in their hand....collage painting. I use to do collages on boxes for friends, for jewelry boxes or gift boxes.

Doing artwork makes me feel like a child at play....and it must feel that way for you, too.

Re: making sales

Thanks sam444, it feels wonderful. Today I got a gas company disconnect notice and I know that I can pay it....no problem. That feels good. Finally, I will begin to catch up.

Thanks for reading and for commenting so nicely.

Right now, get a headshot with a blurb in a 5X8 format

...introducing the artiste and have it placed near your offerings. Not an ad, an intro.

If in doubt, paste in Madonna's head.

It is lovely to have more artistic talents than one. I can't paint, but what I like to do is "collage" but only for me and friends. I cut things out of magazines and then 'rearrange' them to my whim. So, a flower gets to wear sunglasses, a bird wears high heels etc. It's just for fun.
