A new mixed media painting.
Acrylic paint, charcoal, soft pastel, oil pastel, stamps and paint pen.

What would you like to imagine today?

I just purchased Kelly Rae Robert's book
Flying Lessons: Tips & Tricks to
help your creative business soar.

Today I am going to imagine a future
where my art is out in the world in a big way.
Here are a few of my big dreams for my artwork:
- Princess Monster stamps, t-shirts, journals
-an inspirational art card & print line
-my artwork featured in a Stampington magazine

I am taking little tiny baby steps,
building towards these dreams.

One of these steps was opening my first online store.
You can visit my Society 6 shop here.

I wasn't ready for the commitment of managing
an Etsy store, given that sometime in the next
seven weeks I will be welcomig my second son
into the world.

So baby steps for me, both literally
and figuratively.

What are your big dreams?
What baby step can you take today toward
those imaginings?

P.S. I'll be linking up with
which is a whole lot of fun.
