Dreams and Reality

Have you ever dreamt about doing something for years and never did anything about it?  I guess we all have.  I dreamed of my world of watercolors and paintings and creating since I was a little girl.   I even set up a website a few years ago – under ArtbyVickieB yet somehow I got stuck up in the world of corporate America and didn’t renew the domain.  All that hard work and money to web designers was down the drain.  I was broken hearted.  Another set back!

That’s why this time I am learning how to do update my website myself.  The good news is it’s much easier than it was then.  The bad news is I had to start  ALL OVER AGAIN!  This doesn’t mean I didn’t get professional assistance in getting started because I did.  Thank you David and Deborah!

Since I am learning to update the site myself, you will see a few flaws in the beginning (well maybe all along the way! Ha!).  Be patient, I will get the hang of it soon.

This time my dream won’t escape me.  I disappointed myself too many times in the past.  I have to make this work.  You see, even though I’ve always loved to draw and paint, I got caught up in my left brain world of accounting and payroll and didn’t take time for my “right brain”.   In order to keep going, I had to get out the pencils and watercolors – to draw and paint.  Only then would I be refreshed and renewed.  That’s what art does for me.  It refreshes my soul and renews my heart so I am pushing myself even harder to make this dream come true.

I’m blessed to have sold several paintings and prints and even a few commissioned pieces, just enough to keep my right brain happy.  Now I want to spend much more time in my right brain.  Vickie, let’s turn at least one of those dreams into reality!!!

Thank you Deborah!  I think I almost mastered cropping and watermarks today (yea!) which means more art will be added to my gallery over the next few weeks.

As requested, I’ll post a few photos of my Kitty, Bitsy Girl who inspires me every day because she expects the BEST cat food available.  With her tummy problems she’s on a special diet of “duck and green peas” (YUCK).  Bitsy loves it so I’m happy if she’s happy.

And so I wrap up my 2nd blog post with Bitsy meowing in the background telling me it’s time to watch TV and spend some time with her.  I wish all my friends who visited my blog (and all those who will visit in the future) a life filled with dreams turned into reality.  OK Bitsy, I’m coming!
