Giclee print for sale.
I have had to reconsider if I am really unemployed. A couple of days ago, I asked my missions pastor if I could sell some artwork to help pay for my upcoming trip to Nicaragua. He said sure, but to try it on Facebook. Ever since then, I have busied myself by posting, all my prints that I have dragged to and from Morocco, on Facebook. Yes, I dragged a lot of art to Morocco, and happily, some of it stayed there. But much did not.

Another from the black portfolio.
I was not too certain anything would sell, but I know people are praying, and I am, too. Believe it or not, I started getting donations for artwork! Trust me, in this world of instant art, colored printers and cheap prints, along with a recession, original art isn't selling as well as it used to. (Not that I've ever peaked or anything.)

So, I have been running around buying bubble wrap filled mailers and culling through every piece or print of art I have made in the past couple of years. If you could see my sagging, half-dead portfolio case, you'd wonder what good could come of it. (Don't judge a book by its cover, nor my portfolio bag:-) That poor black bag got stuck in a snowstorm in Frankfurt, Germany on December 18th, so I am amazed I even have it today. Inside, it turns out, are little art treasures for dear friends who support me.

Now, back to the Morocco Medina....I still have a few hours left to paint. I'll post a photo later.
