Painting has been very therapeutic for me

Before I got out of rehab, my counselor asked me what I was going to do with my time. I hadn't really given it much thought so I blurted out "Painting!" Well, after a couple months, I felt guilty about not taking up painting, so I bought some supplies and started teaching myself. Then I started a blog where I posted my finished works. Wow! When I look back at my earlier paintings it's almost embarrassing. I think I've come a long way, but I still have a long way to go. Here's a link to my blog:

2. Fantastic!

I really like your painting (and the title) "Tree's Company" - it is both pretty & witty!

4. I guess that comes from my background in advertising

I'm a copywriter, so I try to come up with something funny, when I can.

6. I just sold my first painting!

Maybe if I sell a few more, it'll offset the price of my materials.

Iím sure itís just the first of many. I have a friend who has an Etsy site. She advertised that she does special orders and has sold several that way.
