Hello there! Good news, I sold my first three pet portraits today. What a relief! After over a month of not selling anything, I was beginning to feel like maybe Etsy may not be the platform for me. Perhaps, patience is hardest part of this process. I am so happy I stuck with it. This sale has encouraged me to read more about selling on Etsy and conintually improve my shop and, of course, my website. I would love to make art my full time career, but I know I also need to pay bills. I have not let go of my day job, yet. In fact, I will be working this upcoming weekend, so I need to get work of these portraits.
