Getting all my ducks, um, I mean geese - in a row

I took this photo a couple of weeks ago over at the Bothell River. I couldn't believe how many goslings there were! (So cute too! Fuzzy all over and even though they're larger than the adult ducks, they still peep.) The adult goose was in the process of herding them into the river so they could cross and get bread crumbs from the family of humans on the other bank.

The past couple of weeks I've been pretty busy. I've been painting a lot, and I've actually started to seriously think about my marketing again too. This makes me nervous, and I have to be careful not to overdo it because marketing can easily feel overwhelming and makes me shut down. I'm approaching it slowly, and I feel pretty good about it so far. I'm considering blogging my efforts, and their results, as an incentive to keep at it, but I'm not sure. We'll see.

Anyway, 5 paintings (3 of which you've seen my lame photos of here on my blog) are off being professionally photographed. Then it's time to get slides and enter competitions, approach galleries, etc. And of course I'll be posting the new and improved images here.

I'm also looking into getting small fine art prints made to sell. Anybody interested? Any particular pieces you've seen here or on my website that you'd like to own a print of? Though I have to complete my research, I think I'll be selling in the range of 8x10 prints for about $25 up to 16x20 prints for about $100, shipping & tax included. If all goes well, they should be available in a few weeks.
