I finally finished the card catalog yesterday morning!   I got it to the client, now we will just have to wait and see how it goes.  Now maybe I will start a new painting.  I have not painted in quite some time.  Soon, very soon!


It’s 2010 and I haven’t posted a thing in a year!

Unbelieveable!  With great intentions last year, I thought I would post something, but I didn’t post one thing.  I also took a second job.  As an artist, my artist job is my primary job, whether or not I am actually making money at it.  Any other job is my second job.   My second job is a server in a restaurant.  I had not done this in many years, and my feet forgot all about it.  We also did not use computers when I previously performed this duty either.   I call this my culture shock job.

Anyway, I went through a transformation both physically and mentally.  Shortly after I started working, I had second thoughts.  I had a goal in mind, so I had a choice to make.  I could have a positive attitude or negative, and my success as a server would depend on that choice.  I knew I was a bit out of shape, and it was rather intense at first.  I have now decided that I get paid to work out, no gym membership required.  This changed my schedule drastically, so the past year has been a lot of adjustment in life. 

We have been working on a line of greeting cards, and over the next few weeks we are working on getting them on the website.  Feel free to keep checking for more.  I am also going to make a better attemp to blog a bit more.  You can also visit our facebook page Martindale Artworks for our Trivia Questions.  They are usually animal related.  We look forward to seeing you in our fan base.  Thank you for checking in!
