I had the urge to paint. Already March 15. First painting of the month. Whoa. I always feel guilty that March is a month of little artistic output for me. I am always very busy after the gathering.

First with the group blog post, and Pinterest board. Then with organizing the group digital files. All of the graphics I created, the banner, album covers, and inspirationals. Files I used for painting reference or inspriation get moved to my permanent Inspo file, or trashed.

You know how much I love to organize. Sometimes I think I make a mess just so I can clean it up. LOL. KIdding.

I spent a week working on my Society6 shop. They added new items, like a puzzle and a desk mat. I had to approve new items, and adjust the artwork or pattern to look best for each. Add to that the unfortunate surprise that some items I had turned “on” were off. And some that I had set as “off” were on. Not good. I have 92 designs listed, and there are over 60 items that can be made available for each of them. Huge task. More work there.

I am still home bound. I had an x-ray done today. Next Thursday I see the lung specialist. I’ll be posting an update. Praying that the Covid damage to my lungs is not as bad as expected.

I have to say though, that It feels great to be productive. Even if it is behind the scenes, and no one knows but me. Haha. I even have my next two posts planned.

Enjoy!

Welcome creatives!

I am so honored to be among the talented creators in this group. You are inspiring! Your desire to learn, your commitment to growth and experimentation. Your kind generosity with fellow members. Congratulations to all, on your amazing, creative journey!

Thank you for granting permission to display your wonderful works. Here, and on the Pinterest group board. I will have the images pinned in the next day or two. Be sure to check back for the stunning gallery. 🙂

Happy are the painters, for they shall not be lonely.
Light and colour, peace and hope,
will keep them company to the end of the day.
