The Rush of Creating and Selling

As most of you already know, I'm an artist with a serious crush on photography. Many times, I've even shared various websites where my prints and originals are for sale. However, what I typically omit from my blog posts is the overwhelming feeling of accomplishment when I sell my original works of art. I create something, bravely share and promote my vision to the best of my ability and then someone other than me has a desire to love and appreciate it enough to put it on display in their home or office (!?!). It's insane in the best way possible! This undeniable feeling of joyful awe and gratitude will almost certainly never dissipate. I'm incredibly thankful and, honestly, it feels something like drinking bottled happiness. 

Long story short, it wasn't that long ago that I discovered Saatchi Art (an online gallery connecting artists with collectors) and thought, what the heck. Why not list a few pieces and see what happens. Well, this past week brought some wonderful and completely unexpected moments because I sold two paintings! This isn't the first time I've sold my work but wow, I mean what a rush! I literally spent hours packaging, panicking and perfecting presentation so that hopefully when the paintings arrive, my amazing new customers will be just as happy on the receiving end as I am on the supplying end.

Anything is possible, and sometimes those much-needed moments come when you least expect them. Thank you for letting me share this great news, and thank you for supporting my work. xoxo Bella

I'm so excited for you! I just started an Etsy page about a month ago and haven't had any luck yet. I've mostly been getting commissions by word of mouth so far. I heard about Saatchi recently and was thinking about listing a few things there....maybe I will! =)

Glad to see this up and about in the net. The key thing here is to build up your art as an online brand, then utilize the online media outlets as a means with which to market it and put it out there.

Cherokee | Drawing Progress

As a woman of esteemed Cherokee ancestry, I've wanted to express and create a more spiritual atmosphere to my art for a long time. One that specifically depicts my bloodline... the strength, courage and exemplary virtues of some of the women I've been fortunate enough to know in my life.
“The Cherokees did not separate spiritual and physical realms but regarded them as one, and they practiced their religion in a host of private daily observances as well as in public ceremonies.”

New Drawing ▲The Main Light

It's always exciting to share new artwork, especially after spending hours, days and sometimes weeks mapping through imaginative ideas and all those billowing clouds of charcoal dust. Through this much-needed experiment of breaking the boundaries of my comfort zone, I'm anxious to develop as an artist... and in the same thought, I know that growth takes time. Until then, I'll keep taking small steps towards something bigger.
The Main Light, is the second drawing in a new collection I've been diligently creating. Don't forget to look back on the first piece, Silent Forest, as well as thesneak peek I shared the other day!
