Thanks for the sale!

My image, Rules to Live By was recently purchased as a mounted print. I don’t know who the buyer was, but I want them to know how very much I appreciate this sale!

It is so exciting and gratifying when someone appreciates your art enough to spend their hard-earned dollars to make a purchase. Rules to Live By means a lot to me personally so I’m thrilled about the sale!!

Family Death

It is with deep sadness that I must tell everyone that my father-in-law, Jack, passed away today. Please keep my husband, Monty, in your prayers as this is a most difficult time for him.

I just became active again on Redbubble a couple of weeks ago after a year-long absence to take care of Jack as well as my mother. I won’t be able to comment on your work this week but hope to return again in a week or two.

Where more than 10 tags would be appropriate: When I am tagging I always ask myself, how many different words might a person search to find my image. Everyone uses different terminology. Beach or Sea or Ocean? Rural or Pastoral or Countryside? Vintage or Antique or Retro.
