Yikes - I finally did it...



After a lot of prodding from friends I have finally decided to list custom portraits on Etsy. This marks the first time I've ever tried to do it professionally (OK, I admit it - I'm SCARED). Heck, I've hardly let anyone even see my art over the years. It is one of my true passions, though. I start with the eyes. They're a window to your soul - and if I can't capture someone's personality in their eyes I start over. Simple as that. Anyway, here's a few of my faves...

This is a really nice piece of work. What an interesting idea to sell portraits on Etsy. This gives me ideas.

Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving your kind comment. I love your blog and I'm already checking out all the shops. I'm definitely coming back for more later.
