This is a 2fer, its a postcard I made for a swap, and since its flowers, its for the Flower Challenge. I use a painted background that I did in acrylics, and the flowers and the outline of the bowl was done in markers, they worked the best on this pre painted paper I found.
Today i have been blog surfing and reading some new and old blogs, and learning some new art techniques. I was reading a blog about blogging, ( i would give you the link but I cant find it now) , and gave some tips on blogging and not getting burnt out. Because don't you sometimes say to yourself , geez why do I blog, So her advice was step back, and remember why you first started to blog. Why doesn't it bring you joy now, what have you been doing different since you started your blog to make you think you want to quit . It might be your expectations have not been met.
When I first started my blog five years ago, i started it for me, to document my life and my journey into an artful life. A life i wanted now that I was not working. I had no expectations on how many people would read my blog. Now five years later, I feel that I am doing what I set out to do. And still feel joy when people comment on my blog, but don't get me wrong there are some days that I wake up and think i should quit that blog. But i know that if I did i would miss it and all of you. So today s question is when you started your blog what expectations did you have?
