STOP AND SMELL THE FLOWERS...

What flowers?
LOL!

I posted this finished painting on Facebook and Instagram this afternoon.
I didn't put "words" on it like I usually do because I didn't think it needed it.
I'm experimenting with adding more paper.
Mixed Media, Collage, whatever.

It measures 4" x 4" and it's 1 1/2" thick.
Here's a side view.
It's thick enough to stand on a table, cabinet whatever by itself.
But of course you can still hang it too.

Now for the exciting part.
I had just posted it on Facebook and I started to get several "LIKES"
when someone asked if it was for sale?
Hell yeah!
SOLD
LOL! and I'm HAPPY.
and I haven't been all week because I've felt like I had been disrespected several times...
but I'm not thinking about that anymore.
Nope, I'm focused 
and all of you have played a HUGE part in that.
Thank you again for the words of encouragement
and for just being there.
XOXO

Doin' cartwheels here!

Of course this gorgeous piece sold - it's perfect. No words needed here. That wee kitty's blissful expression says it all.
Told you Cindi... think big, think global.
Get your work out there and GOOD things will happen! :)

So VERY, VERY happy for you! You know that :)

Oh and, can you post a link to your FB page?
Awesome!
Smilin' from ear to ear to see this post. Does my heart good.

Vicki!
I was so excited.
I really need to set up an Etsy shop/page so that I can direct people there. I pretty much know everyone on my FB page but I have Likes from strangers on Instagram that I need to be able to direct them to a place where they can purchase it through PayPal or something.
I used to work with the woman that bought it so I'm just meeting her to deliver it to her.
I also need to set up a public FB Artist page too. I've noticed that a lot of them have it besides their own personal page. (Apparently it's for people with over 5000 Followers, because that's the limit? on regular FB? Hahaha! I have no worries right now about THAT because I barely have 100!)
Anyway, here's my link to my Facebook:

Tammy,
LOL! You are just the best!
Thank you so much.
I'm hoping that it will turn into something bigger.
I just want to get a bunch of paintings done so that if that space opens up for my Art, I will be ready.
And I need to learn about setting up an Etsy shop properly and then I think I'm ready to start on my Kanga book.
Thanks for all your support!
XOXOXO
