What goes in this blog?

I’ve been thinking about what I want to do with this blog. Will I be motivated to keep it going? Will I attract an audience? I want to provide content that can add value to people’s lives. I want the process of blogging to add value to my life. That’s what I’ve been thinking.

I’ve visited websites of artist I admire like Teesha Moore, Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, and DeeDee Catron. I’m intimidated but inspired. These artists are years ahead of me. I may never get to where they are in their careers, but I can make my¬† mark in the world in my own way. I guess the trick is to work hard and keep learning.

I’ve been working on a 10×10 canvas with the goal of trying to sell it. The idea is to be confident about my work and assume someone would like to own it.

My husband and father think I should focus on writing. There’s just so much to do.
