I am a 45 year old mother of three now grown children. (sigh)
I am currently unemployed and have enjoyed the time I've recently had to practice my artwork. I am also very lucky to have a wonderful boyfriend that helps support me financially, emotionally and creatively.
I have always been told, "You're so talented." Don't get me wrong it's a wonderful compliment. Without sounding like a snob or conceited I have tried and succeeded at many different crafts including knitting, crocheting, quilting, sewing, floral arrangement, scrapbooking, graphic design, sketching, card making, cross stitching, etc. I have taught myself from books or looking online and pick things up extremely fast (get that from my father supposedly). However, the bad part is, I can't seem to focus on one particular thing. I'm not sure if it's a form of ADD or OCD but I'll get really focused on one medium for a few weeks, then get bored with it and move on something else. Doesn't seem like a bad problem to have except that I would really love to be able to use one as a form of extra income but it's hard to do that when you lose interest after a month or so. lol.
I'm currently into the sketching, water colors, oils and colored pencil sketches and hope that maybe I have found the one medium that I can focus all my attention on and eventually begin to sell. Only time will tell!
