I have been lucky enough that my art was never advertised and they are sold to good homes on pure word of mouth or people who inquire when they see something they like from here or Flicker. I can't sell, not even water in the desert... but since some fellow bloggers have inquired about how to purchase my art, I put a link on the side bar with what I have available.
Please note I don't sell my art to make money. I have a career and painting is a passion. It would lose the meaning it has for me if it became a means to live off of.
All the money I get is spent on supplies I need or the money goes to charities close to my heart, such as animal shelters or to causes related to women's rights (some are in the US, such as Women in Distress, some are in Africa, South America, etc.).
So, you can take a pick if you want: Art to Good Home
But now to better things. The final count down to my trip is approaching. I have yet to have a complete melt down because of the flight. My fear has gone from being a discomfort to being a phobia. I had a traumatic take-off a few years ago and it has gotten progressively worse over the years.
I am taking the absence of panic attacks only 5 days prior to my flight to South America as a good sign. The fact that we will be flying over the Amazon forest has not fazed me either (it gets really bumpy in the area). It will be about 5 hours from Miami to Manuas in the north part of Brazil, then another 3 hours to the city we are going. I am excited!!!!!
