Here is the Rosita commission piece, my first Eberl! Brigitte is an amazing talent as a sculptor, and I can't believe how prolific she is. If I could paint as much as she sculpts, my life would be so much better ;-)
Unfortunately, that's all I've got to show this week. I'm still prepping a couple of things, and I've had to do some organizing and paperwork in the studio so I don't have much to show. I have to do my state dept. of revenue taxes (I hate hate HATE doing taxes) and I also start getting last year's paperwork together for tax purposes. I have to start early because it stresses me out so much. I actually worry about taxes and my business almost every day. I can honestly say that I hate having a business license, I hate the pressure it puts on me to sell everything and constantly produce. I'm used to being successful at the things that I try, but I just can't paint fast enough, or sell enough to even make a modest profit. And facing my accountant every year with my paltry earnings is really squirm-inducing, let me tell ya. I know that I'm a good artist, it's just the business side of it that's really hard and stressful for me. I don't know, maybe I'm just going through the mid-winter blahs! I need to get somewhere where it's sunny LOL! I always go into a kind of funk this time of year because of the weather, but this year it's extra-bad.
