I need to find my niche.  My art is kind of all over the map...varying editing styles in photography, completely random themes and styles in paintings.  I haven't had a series of any one thing or a unifying style...I tend to just do whatever appeals to me at the time. 

I always hated in art class when I had to make meaning out of everything I made. 
Why can't I just say I made this because I thought it looked cool; it would go in my house; I used these colours because they balanced out the painting; I wanted to try something new; yes, I copied someone else because I liked it and wanted to see if I could make it too; I just like plumerias.

I make art because I like to.  I like the process, I like the challenge (especially trying to mix the perfect shade of colour), I like the sense of accomplishment, and most of the time, I like the result.

But I'm finding that if I ever want to sell anything, whether it be photos or paintings, in coffee shops or on etsy, I need at least some sort of unifying theme.  A niche.  Every artist is known for some style or theme.
Now, to find mine...

With Love!  The Eiffel Tower, Paris
The Sacre Coeur Carousel in Montmartre, Paris

Mother's Day

Photos!  I finally got around to editing a few in hopes of having them up for Mother's day.  I still have to do a  print check to make sure the colours turn out the way I want them too.

* All photos can have custom text...either what you see here, no text at all, or whatever text you would like! * 

I believe this is a Saucer Magnolia tree in Stanley Park, Vancouver

* P.S.  I also need your HELP!  I'd like to put some up on my etsy site but I need some opinions on which one's to include.  Which ones do you think most people will like? *
