I have updated my About page with news of what is happening around here. This should keep me busy and smiling 🙂 Thanks everyone!
Time for a bit of an update I would say it has been awhile.
I began my blog as a way to connect to others as life for me was so different as the hustle and bustle of trucking was over after 3 million miles. Not bad for a female and I must say there was never a moment in the 30 years I held that commercial drivers licence that I was sexually harassed. I never had to lower myself to get work I am proud to say my work ethic was all anyone had to see to know I was up for the run.
I went from sharing lousy photos to then honing my skills to actually selling many each month on the different platforms out there. I then shared stories with you about life and it’s struggles and victories I must say what a ride it has been. I took a Watercolor class one night, 2 hours and my world changed. I once again shared with you all my early attempts and for those who stopped by to encourage me Thank You. I have just begun my 4th year of painting and learning all I could about play. Before my mom died last year she asked me to retire from trucking and to keep painting. Doors have begun to open and I no longer fear stepping through them. I enter shows and never worry about what others think of my pieces you see I love each one. They come from within and pour out onto that wet piece of white paper, each a piece of me and the life I have led.
I have set up a website here at https://uni356.wixsite.com/folsom-mill-studio with all the links for getting a print or card of anything be it photography or watercolor. I have joined Instagram as well under Folsommill where I will post videos, works in progress and shots from here in New England. I am bad about putting down the brush and adding to stores never mind blogging to you all I am sorry, I am caught up in creating more than sharing I will try harder because I love connecting with you. If you see me post something that speaks to you send me an email and tell me which store you want me to add it to. Zazzle has items FAA doesn’t sell I make a $1 or $2 for most items some just 10 cents it all helps to keep me in paint and paper.
This link above has a drop down menu so you can find me. I appreciate each and every one of you who has bought something I have made, you have helped me greatly.
Now for some better news I am trying to conserve my property here in NH for the Arts and will in time look for Artists to hold workshops here where their followers can come and learn. First I conserve and do all the legal things and then I build a place for the teacher to stay and there will be a motel minutes from here for the students to book their rooms. I will cook for the teachers and provide lunches for the workshop attendees and a ride to and from the motel if they do not want to rent cars though most will as New England is such an amazing part of the United States they will want to take it all in and maybe even setup trips for Plein Air excursions. It is an exciting time for me and I will blog as changes begin here on the property and I start booking their stays. Do you create? Do you have favorite teachers you want to learn from? Yes it is hard work but nothing like trucking 🙂 Stay tuned!
