For not the first time, but maybe the last time, I have started a "home business". The difference with this one is that it is one I really enjoy. I've drawn and painted horses since I was (at least) five years old--that's the earliest one that my mother saved.
By the time I entered my teens, Mother had grown a bit tired of the subject and urged me to do something else with my artwork besides horses. I followed her advice and never looked back until ten years ago when it occurred to me that people might actually pay for horse portraits. I have had many exhibits of my landscapes, and sold a good number of them--but not enough to provide any kind of steady income.
I'm hoping that if I work hard and market this business well I will be able to delight my customers, make some money, and have a lot of fun doing it.

I somehow came across artforshelteranimals.blogspot.com (it’s listed in my blogroll) and it seemed like a great combination of marketing effort and direct benefit to charitable groups that I support but don’t have a lot of money to donate to. To … Continue reading
Still slogging away–and adopting guerrilla marketing tactics
I’m spending a lot of time figuring out which horse show I’m going to risk my reputation at next! I’ve had some difficulty acquiring names and phone numbers, but I finally got a few that seem like they’ll be the … Continue reading
