Work=Play

What a great blessing it is to work
doing what you absolutely love
...and even more so
when you can do it from home.
To say I'm thankful is an understatement.

You're absolutely right!

I do have to work for 8 hours a day doing graphic art work for other people, before I can start on my own artwork, but it is still all from home!

No commuting. I love it. That's hours and hours of extra "art" time every week!

I was just thinking the very same thing! Gratitude is good stuff. It's especially beautiful to share it with others. Your peaceful, colorful birds always make me feel calm and uplifted.

Nothing better! Look forward to seeing the bird illustration when it's finished. You might have missed my comment on your Valentine heart - just a little award I left you on my blog last week.http://carolinesstudio.blogspot.com/2009/02/7-things-i-love.html No obligation to pass it on - I know that some people are not keen on tagging!!!

I am incredibly envious in a healthy kind of way. I admire all your work and I think it is really a blessing to be able to do what you love to do. I hope someday I'd be able to have the courage to do the same. :)

Thank you for all the inspiring artwork! :)

Creo que es una de las mejores cosas que le pueden pasar a una persona.
Tienes razón en dar las gracias, pero creo que tu actitud es una de las razones de que hayas conseguido disfrutar trabajando. ¡Así que no queda más que felicitarte!
Espero llegar a ese estado algún día, para eso hay que ver las cosas como tú lo haces.

Lovely painting, and lovely sentiment! Soon I will be able to work fulltime from home creating art as well. It will be a dream come true.

I couldn't agree more. I'm always trying to replace those things that are stressful and make me unhappy with the things I love. Wish everyone I know could make livings off their true life's passions!

Thank you for sharing the photos of your process. Since I'm not an artist, but love your birds (I just received mine last week - thank you, I love it!!), I was so interested to see how they come about.

I love your birdies! They remind me of Charles Harper's whimsical serigraphs that also have a message. I found you through E. Floyd's blog.
