Coming soon to a computer near you

Since apparently I'm in the middle of a creative slump, I decided that this was the perfect time to start working on my Etsy store. I keep postponing it and telling myself that "I'm just gonna finish this painting first" or any excuse, really.

Truth is, specially now that it's summer and both kids are home everyday, I get so little time for myself that, when I do, I want to do something fun - paint! Setting up an Etsy store, just between you and me, is the boring part: I have to have good pictures of my paintings, to write a description for each one, and - let's not forget this - price them! And that's why the store keeps getting bumped to "next week".

But now I started. Really started. Let's see how long it takes me.

Meanwhile, here's a painting that I finished recently:

First layers

Hubby said he liked it very much - that made me happy! :-)

And here's a preview of another one I'm currently working on:

Very different of everything I've done so far, including the color choices - much MUCH paler. 
Let's see where it takes me... or where I take it!


  1. Hi Joana,
    Love your work! It's colorful and uplifting.
    If you have any questions while starting up your etsy shop I'd be glad to offer what I can. It's a lot of fun setting up shop :)
    Best wishes,
    Mary Ann
