"You are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed. And you are beautiful." Amy Bloom

Rather off the wall... even for 2005.  I was still exploring and truly having fun and at the time selling art on eBay making a solid living in the area of $75,000 a year. I told someone recently I ALMOST miss those days. I painted one to two paintings a day.  I listed them and sold them. My sweet husband would take Saturday and box paintings ALL day long and I usually had 7-10 pieces sell every week.  It was in 2007 that several galleries picked up my work and my eBay days were closing to an end.  Some of it was the thrill of painting every single day what I wanted... and some was the thrill of getting paid to do it!  I felt like a child lose to explore color and design.  I felt beautiful with this tremendous gift.
