eBay auction for 2/10/10 and new Etsy listing

What kind of world are we leaving behind for our children, when our lives are filled with “have to’s” and “should have’s”? Everything is so rushed. Everyone wants cheap instant gratification. Too many people feel like they’ve ruined their life and they don’t know how to fix it so they might as well waste time and coast into the grave. Or they figure they’re too old to do something with their life. You are never too old to start something new, learn something, mentor someone, change someone’s mind, make someone feel special, or do what you love. As long as there’s energy in your body and willingness in your mind, you are still on the journey of life. Make it what you will. (Hint: that means you shape your life, your happiness, your state of being – YOU, not anyone else.)

Tomorrow’s eBay auction:

Against an Orange Sunset

This is a 10×8 acrylic on wrapped canvas. The colors are stunning and I’ve been told that one of the clouds looks like an angel with wings spread wide.

I might get really ambitious and list an ACEO tomorrow as well. I just haven’t decided which one. I’ll have to think about that for a bit.

I’ll also have a new listing on Etsy called Fading Day. Here’s your first look.

This piece has free U.S. shipping. I should also mention that it’s the “big brother” of Gathering Around. I liked that painting so much I wanted to do it a little bigger.

Thank you for supporting my art. I hope you keep dreaming big!
