I went back to your website today. I had liked what I saw a few months ago and wanted to see if you had anything new.

Did you do Bacon recently? I don't remember seeing that one before. I LOVE it! Verrrrry Creepy! Great stuff!

Kimberly

This is my latest project. It's only been bisque-fired so far, but the glazing will start this week. It's a naga (guards temples) and I haven't named it yet.

Congrats, Beachin!

I can't imagine trying to make it as a full time artist. Keep it up! Here's to many more sales, each one better & better!

OH NO! I'll have to check that email address! Maybe I put something in wrong! I'm at
kimberlycoburn@yahoo

As far as NO is concerned, I haven't been there since last summer. I'm off soon for Spring Break, so maybe we can bring over some Rum then and visit in person!

My spring break is March 19-27. As far as I know we're not going anywhere. I'm saving up to go to the OASIS in May for a couple of days.

Let me know if that'll be ok with you!

Thanks a million! He'll probably have a lot of greens and yellows with a little blue accent. I'll post pics when he's done. Gee, he really needs a name. All of my other creations have names!

Thanks! It's not easy...believe me! I'm in school full-time, too, so there's that added distraction.

On another topic, I discussed how hard it is for me to make decisions about business matters, who to trust, and how much I generally hate being the business manager as well as the artist.

If I had my druthers, I would just make art all day long, but my ambition is to be a KNOWN artist, not just an artist. On that, I will not waver. I want my name out there and my art in other people's homes, not my own.

It's not a greed thing, cuz my prices are low, low, low, and I really don't make much money at all. It's more the fact that I want people to enjoy my art as much as I do.

I'm getting there one sale at a time, though. I've had some good publicity locally and nationally and that helps.

Thanks for the support! I don't know what I would do without this forum. It's become my major support basis, as it's the only place I know of where so many like-minded artists hang out. I like it here.

For those of you who follow my art and my (attempt to build a) business, I sold a piece of art this week for $350! I'm excited because this was my biggest sale as an artist! Go me!

Also, just want to shout out a general thanks to all of you in this forum for being so supportive. You guys are so wonderfully great!

So, without further adieu, I give you a photo of my most recently sold piece (it's not the best pic, but I'm still learning how to use my new-fangled digicam):

Hey Beachin-

Congratulations. That's a nice piece. I enjoy taking something old and making a new art piece out of it. You did a fine job. Keep up the great work!

Why thank you Sir Sam. I'm workin' on blowing the socks off of every tiki from here to Tonga. I'm gonna do it too!

It might cost me dearly, but I've found there's no such thing as overnight success.

Haven't been to your site in a few weeks...I'll have to check out what you've been doing.

see ya
