I spent part of today painting a drawing that I did for my spouse. Watercolor (tube paint) is my preferred medium for color, with some coloring pencils (regular or watercolor) and oil pastel thrown in for good measure. I don’t work on my art as much as I should. I don’t have the luxury of being a fulltime artist. Not that I’m saying those who do have it easy. They don’t. But it’s definitely easier to work on one’s art more often without a separate full time job taking up most of the week. Still, I should make more time when I am home. A little here, a little there. More than what I currently do, certainly.
This talk of being an artist, and I don’t usually share my work here. If you want to check it out, my Deviant Art page and Reddbubble accounts are both under the AlviniaBear username.

Marketing is one of the more difficult parts of being an artist who would like to be a paid artist. It’s not one of my better skills, if I’m being honest. Still, I try what little I can. I share on my personal and public Facebook pages, on Pinterest, and finally started a Twitter that I now share on. All I can do is keep trying, right?
