Well, it is done.

It is done.
I will no longer working for PictureMe Portrait Studios.
This decision was forced upon me by this regional manger.
Saturday was a very low prs day $32 on the 9 customers that came in.  All they wanted was the little cheap special.
Okay, I worked with them just as if they were going to purchase more.
My choice was being fired for my 3rd strike (write up) or give a 2wk notice.
I like working as a photographer.  It was fun working with the kids; creating beautiful memories.
Now what is left is art.
This is really cool.  This is my thing.
Now how to support my family with this art.
This is the biggest fear of all.

Prayer

I’m writing because my family needs prayer for our finances.

We both work hard and live paycheck to paycheck.  We seem to never have enough to pay our
bills. 

We sacrifice purchasing food to pay a bill.  This is really bad no since we have a small
daughter.

To top it off, bill collectors have to harass my husband’s
mother.  She is disabled and in the same
boat as us. (She helped when she was able. 
Now it is uncalled for.)

My parents are not able to help us either.  My mom lost her job and my dad isn’t able to
work. 

My siblings are no financial genius either.  They have low paying job and they are always accused
of not doing their jobs correctly when they do.

No wonder people want to kill themselves and their families.

It has always been this way.

To make matter worse the media and conmen says there is a
better way, which I have fallen into many times.

I guess this is the spur that makes me want to quit and do
nothing.

Look, I have a talent. 
I can draw and paint well.  It may
not be photographic realism, it my artist style.

What started this blog was my mother-in-law called us accusing
us of lying to her about our car note. 
They company clamed that we are 2 months behind ($500.)  The rep started telling her that her credit
will be affected.  Well, she went
off.  She said so many bleeps and got so furriest
that she called us and bleep us.

My husband and I are really don’t like to curse.  We can and won’t.

We really do need the prayer for financial healing.

Even that silent gasp is the prayer and thank you.

Amen.

Why do I want to sell my art?

This question has been bothering me and is the question that I seem to be avoiding.

Why do I want to sell my art?
 Is my art good enough?

I know I’m a good artist, shoot, I got trained and I practice.

I guess I want to sell my art to get the self sanctification that I want.

Oh, don’t get me wrong my life is satisfying enough, just financially it stinks. That’s why I’m working a "real"job.

Anyway, my art is good which I have been told by many people locally and on artist websites that I have joined. 

No one is purchasing a print or original.

The prices are reasonable for most artist starting out. 

I guess it is the area. 

Since, folks see me at the portrait studio they don’t consider me a professional artist.

I’m sorry, that is a sore subject.  Let me get back to my question.

I want to sell my art so I don’t have to work a regular job to be financially fit.  I can work at my own studio creating my pieces (some time doing the occasional commission piece.)

But, of course that may get too boring and automatic that I could lose interest. 

I get so side tracked sometimes with my job that my creativity get placed way down on the to do list. 

My real job satisfies the creativeness side and fulfills the financial side.

Let me get back again.

The answer to the question is I want to sell my art to have creative and financial foundation that a regular job would not be needed. 

I could create all day and bills (debts) are paid fully.

Amen, Lord Jesus, Amen.

Bio

I graduated from Blue Mountain College with a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Art, 1992.

I have manager in both food service and photographic studio.

In 1997 I purchased a WebTV and begin teaching myself basic HTML for a personal webpage. Gradually, I advanced to graphic programs, CorelDraw and Photoshop, to create my webpage. I never lost my interest to handcraft commissioned drawings and paintings.

Lorgh Graphics is the current name of my freelance business. Lorgh was invented in 1997; little did I know that lorgh is an actual word in the Celtic language.

I currently work at the same portrait studio for the past 8 year while casually freelancing on the side.

I want to trans to working freelance out of my home studio.
