oh, rikki, you're so fine.
Today's paintings are in honor of Rudyard Kipling and his creations, Rikki Tikki Tavi and The White Seal. I can almost smell the 9 grains of popcorn on a brown paper towel on my desk as I settled in for a 4th grade movie. Ahhhh. The 1980's were good, and I am old.
Which brings to mind a bad joke.
Man: Do you like Kipling?
Other man: I don't know. I've never kippled.
HA HA HA HA HA. British people are funny!
So I'm brain dead, and I have a question.
I've got 10 or so paintings thus far, and I can't quite figure out what to do with them. Save them for a show next year, or start selling them in my Etsy shop? Or should I save these for the show, and do something more marketable in the same style for the Etsy shop?
Or, maybe I should first ask... would anyone want to actually buy them, and how much would you pay?
I'm not looking for commitment here, or even compliments, although I wouldn't turn 'em down. Mainly, I'm curious if they would actually sell. My last foray into "make something to sell on Etsy" was a major failure, so I clearly can't anticipate the industry. Maybe I should do some woodburnings of Edward and Bella? I don't know.
I'm good at making art, but I suck at selling it.
And now I'm either going to go bake cookies or take a bath. But not both at the same time.
That's just silly.
