I'm sure you are aware that limners have commitments, too. We have bling to buy, vacations to dream of, and we have to pay for our art supplies, and stamps, and shoes and rocking totes.
For real, we have to pay for our books, our 'zine subscriptions, our reading glasses that have headlights.
There are pastels, and pencils, stationery and fountain pens, lovely inks, and paper sinks. Oh, yes. We have to earn our pin/pen money.
Ain't it funny?
Ain't it funny how art supplies always need replenishing? And who said freelancing was free? Sure wasn't me. So. Hi-ho! Hi-ho! It's off to play I go. Down the hall to the studio. Hi-ho! Do what you love and you never have to work.
P.S. I'll be back in a handful of days, or less. There'll be much to tell and many letters to write. Oh! And surprises. There will be lots of surprises! Stay tuned?
