It's kind of funny. I've recently noticed that my attention span for different artistic endeavors last approximately 2 years. So here's the progression since I started selling my art in eBay in 2003. I first started with painted stones and after 2 1/2 years I got a little tired of contorting animals on to rocks. I next started painting on canvas. I had painted before. But I mostly painted marine mammals. This was kind of exciting and taught me a lot. I tried for the longest time to do a painting a day. I think it really honed my skills. Although, I rarely painted more than 5 miniature paintings a week. I have a lot still to learn. In February of 2008 I was doing some research for a painting when I ran across needle felted animals. I had to give it a try. Now two years later, I'm in kind of a creative slump. I hope that it's not yet another 2 year thing. The one constant throughout my art career has been that I donate a portion of my sales and that my focus is mainly on animals.
