My Artwork- Can’t Even Give it Away!

I am a folk artist. I started creating my pen and ink and watercolor artwork back in  1996. Lately I’ve been offering gift certificates for my artwork at benefits. One was a 11″ x 14″ House Blessing or Birth Document for a raffle prize for a benefit for a family who lost their home to a fire. The winner took home the small 5″ x 7″ House Blessing I offered as a sample of my artwork but never ordered anything. The same thing happened for a benefit for a woman with cancer. One of my own relatives won and never cashed it in.. What’s up with that? I do beautiful work! It’s heirloom quality materials used! Here’s a sample:

 

As I Was Saying…

Sometimes it’s necessary to e-mail a blogger and beg to have your comment deleted…  I know I was just being myself with my comments, like I’m in some freaking private chat room! Blogging is not chatting exactly! I know EVERY SINGLE WORD I’VE PUBLISHED ONLINE WILL BE OUT THERE FOREVER. Where it’s stored I don’t know.. But I have rued the day I opened my mouth more times than I can count! I’m a Sagittarius after all! I’m opinionated, rather blunt and totally honest! I have even been called a “Genuine” person at one time. Meaning my intentions are genuine? Hmm But I have a self esteem problem you know? Why can’t I just say my piece and be done with it? It’s in the past already! What do I care what you readers think anyway? RIGHT?  Ugh!
