Can Things In My Life

Can things in my life get any worse?

I just received news that our car is dead and really ain’t worth fixing.

Well that really ripped a big hole in my heart.

My heart has been breaking a little, bit by bit for the past months here lately.  We are financially strapped.  WE, I’m talking about my husband and I. 

He thinks that I’m on the internet playing around while I think I’m trying to create a business to bring in some income without going out of the house to work.

He keeps saying that I need a job.  Well, duh.  I have been looking but these minimum wage jobs don’t help me grow that just keep me as “free” labor or as a warm body. 

That’s how it feels. All those years of working and really not getting recognized as an accomplished artist.

I know I have made a lot of mistakes and this stress doesn’t make me feel any better about myself.

I know I not the best house keeper. I am trying and he has said that I’m a whole lot different that when we first got married.  I really do try.

I’m thinking that if I could sell my works like I sold photographs at Walmart than we wouldn’t be so financially stressed.  I guess this is  just a stupid idea.

Things have gotten some better.  Prayer other than mine are out and a forgiveness prayer was given.  This human nature can get me in trouble.

Bio

I graduated from Blue Mountain College with a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Art, 1992.

I have manager in both food service and photographic studio.

In 1997 I purchased a WebTV and begin teaching myself basic HTML for a personal webpage. Gradually, I advanced to graphic programs, CorelDraw and Photoshop, to create my webpage. I never lost my interest to handcraft commissioned drawings and paintings.

Lorgh Graphics is the current name of my freelance business. Lorgh was invented in 1997; little did I know that lorgh is an actual word in the Celtic language.

I currently work at the same portrait studio for the past 8 year while casually freelancing on the side.

I want to trans to working freelance out of my home studio.

Hello world!

Welcome to WordPress.com. This is your first post.

What can I tell you about myself?
Well, for one thing I have been on the internet for about 12 or so years trying to sell my artworks.
I sold some on ebay when my account was open. Not really enough to quit my day job as a portrait photographer.
I have blogs that I don’t keep up or forgotten passwords.  I have so many accounts just about everywhere especially in art sites that were free.
Art is really my thing. Painting and drawing free handed with out the aid of the computer.
Shoot, when I finished college the computer was only used by the business and science majors.
Most of my computer training has been through the past years.
Oh, I did take basic and pascal in high school and college, that was just it.  No photoshop, HTML, or any other programs.
Now photoshop is fun.  I had a taste in 1999 while working as a digital artist for a photo lab.  I loved it so much I bought CorelDRAW 9.
I did upgrade to photoshop cs which stop work on this labtop so I got PainterX off of ebay.
Well, it is way past my bedtime.
