Why I’ve stopped painting!

My paint brushes stored

I haven’t been painting for more than two years now.  It has nothing to do with the lack of desire or inspiration, but more with practical reasons.  My paintings are piling up and I haven’t sold a painting for a while.  Why, you ask?  Besides actually creating art, an artist has to work hard to sell.  Because I simply don’t have the talent for salesmanship, I resort to posting my art on social media like Facebook and Instagram, and sites like ArtPal.  How effective these are remains to be seen.   So, until Lady Luck strikes or a strong wave of inspiration engulfs me, I won’t be painting anytime soon.  

The Red-eye

I was abroad for two months, an extended vacation to avoid most of DC’s winter.  I longed for home days before the end of my trip.  I missed my routine, the comfort of my bed, my daily, albeit, short walks, etc.  I missed home so much I composed a little poem while sitting restlessly on the plane:

The Red-eye

As I sat sleepily by the window above the clouds

I watched the sun begin to rise and

Gradually blend with the indigo sky

Slowly blanketing the land with its 

dazzling light and welcoming warmth

Suddenly the green became trees and the lights, houses and cars

Touchdown! Oh, it’s good to be home!”

My Vida Collection

The tops in my collection are a dream to travel with. Because the image is in front and the back is black, you can play around with the colors to complete your outfit. I pack the top in my carry-on and it stays wrinkle-free when I get to my destination. They can be machine-washed and tumble-dried. Stress-free!
