Shame I can't figure out how to edit my post, so here is my new website: www.SacredArts.net my old one is no longer in use.

This is a crocheted flower I made intermittently over the course of a month or so during spare time before bed, on airplanes, at airports, and for general relaxation.

My first metal sculpture.
Of course it's not completed. I will be adding a head when the horns are finished.

I occasionally dabble in watercolours, although not so much now.

I have a focus in animal and human portraits, always trying to challenge myself to learn new and better techniques.  I don't have a website because I've never been able to make money off art.  I mostly do it for myself or for friends.  I also do graphic business design and lots of other things.

Hi Jen, your artwork is spectacular. Selling art is a pretty time-consuming work for me, and I'm not making a living from it that's for sure. From what I've read, it seems an artist needs to get out there into the art fair markets, but doing that is also time and money consuming. I'm working on getting into exhibits... also time-consuming, and does costs some money but not as much. Just hoping to find an audience of collectors who want to buy. I may eventually give that up and just do it because I love it, lol, because it does seem like a long shot to 'make it'.

In school, I took science classes instead of art classes. I've often regretted that. Never too late to enjoy myself, or learn new things, so here is my first painting.

Cross posting from the "show me your gates" thread.

My newest "art" gate.

I stole the quote from Poe (a line from Annabel Lee), so it's only fair I give his quote on art.  He's kind of a jerk in most of his comments, which is why I think I like him so much.

Edgar Allan Poe on art,
"Were I called on to define, very briefly, the term Art, I should call it 'the reproduction of what the Senses perceive in Nature through the veil of the soul. ' The mere imitation, however accurate, of what is in Nature, entitles no man to the sacred name of 'Artist."

I'd agree, and I am merely an imitator of what I see in nature.
