Pursuing dreams, and leaving perfectionism by the wayside.....I have an Announcement!

Well, from my title post I'm sure you can guess that I have a little announcement. It's something I've been thinking about doing for quite sometime now. But my sister gave me the push I needed yesterday. We were talking about some paintings that I've been working on, in preparation for a studio tour in September. She was so encouraging, telling me that often people who visit her (very hip, I might add) Etsy shop, ask where they could find paintings like the ones in her shop photos.......

Select Modern
She told me she's always wanted to give them my shop name, and send their business my way. Well....... now she can! The husband and I sat down last night, and set it all up, and I'm so pleased. Not to say that it's perfect, or exactly what I had envisioned. I have to be honest though, one of the reasons I had not set up the shop just yet was due to my laundry list of reasons not to. Such as I don't have a good enough camera, I don't have the time, etc, etc. Because I have an expectation of exactly what I think it should be, I'm nervous of letting it fall short of that. Which has kept me from doing anything! Isn't that just silly. The Husband was very encouraging too, and said, you can always go back and tweak it later. Yup, that's true, and had not previously occurred to me.  And I have already adjusted some things since last night, and will continue to do so for a while I'm sure :)
So with out further delay, I am so pleased to announce my own Etsy shop...KatrinaAnja! Over the next few days, I will be adding several more paintings. So check back regularly. Add it to your favourites! Tell your friends and relatives! 'Like' my shop on facebook! I know, shameless self promotion here, but who's gonna do it if I don't!?
Below are some of  my  most recent paintings. Most of my work is Arcylic and mixed media on gallery wrapped canvas. Thanks for your support friends, and remember I take commissions as well!
