This is a momentous moment for me, and so, I’d like to memorialise it by writing it down here on my blog: I have finally sold my first painting on Etsy!
Two months ago, I received my first ever order for custom paintings! I still can’t believe that people actually want to buy my art, what more entrust me with five commissioned paintings!
Have you heard of #The100DayProject? It’s basically a global art project that encourages you to commit 100 days to do something daily – be it painting or writing or knitting or cooking or learning how to sing a different song, the list goes on. It’s sort of an Instagram thing (hence the hashtag), where anyone anywhere can join in as a community. But then again, I’m sure you can also do it even if you don’t have Instagram.
First of all, happy Chinese New Year!!
It’s our very first CNY in Melbourne, and honestly, there is no feel at all… Well, there are several reasons. First, it is because I, being the terrible Chinese mother I am, forgot to buy new (red) clothes for my kids and myself.
It’s February! 2018 is moving really quickly, gee, slow down!
Remember how I challenged myself to paint daily last December? I am so glad I did! Since that month, I have been continuing to sketch and paint every day, and it gives me so much joy.
My obsession with drawing and painting continues. Every morning I look forward to getting out of bed because I can’t wait to paint something. And because my father-in-law is here with us for a few months, I have the luxury of painting for an HOUR every morning!
