Following My Journey

 
Hey Everyone ….
   Go Grab a snickers, it’s going to be a while 🙂 lol !!
 
   Sorry about the delay on the blogs, but be sure to RSS to them, because I plan to blog as often as I can !! I am new at it …. so here I go …
   Things are dandy here in sandy Florida! As some know, some don’t … we just moved to Sarasota Florida a few months ago. Don’t miss the cold for nothing *even though we haven’t had a winter here yet … * but I gotta tell ya it’s been raining here they past 3 days, so I feel a little ripped … lol … but anyway …..
 
   Came down here about 2 and half months ago not knowing what to expect if anything, all my expectations were for nothing. Because I am not doing at ALL what I thought I would be doing when I got here. I thought I would be one of those guys that you see painting pictures on the beach in his flip-flops and a REAL good tan … 🙂  Well that didn’t exactly happen, Instead I have been slightly “DISCOVERED” … just by chance or maybe my higher power doing for me what I can’t do for myself, I had the fortune to run into a very well known and respected art instructor. She was nice enough to take me and my wife under her wing and give us 4 years worth of information in about a 2 week span. WOW, and I THANK YOU ( you know who you are ) To this point I’ve pretty much put all of her suggestions into action which lead to even more opportunities. Been worried if anything would happen art wise before I got here, but NOW I am VERY excited to know I made the right choice by coming down to florida!
   Now if you ask me if I am busy, I would have to say VERY busy ….. I am lined up to teach 5 different classes at 2 different art centers, including workshops presented by “yours truley” as well it sounds like I will be teaching after school classes to kids that want to learn more about the arts as well. I will be posting all info on my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/artsinwonderland on that, plus here on my website too!
 
   Let’s not forget that I have been invited to display artwork at 2 different venues (Venice Art Center –http://veniceartcenter.com/) and (ArtCenter Manatee –  www.artcentermanatee.org ) already and there is this little thing that keeps happening and that is my artwork keeps getting used for the promotional flyers at an ArtCenter Manatee  How cool !!  Jess keeps lining up commission work and keeping me extremely busy ( by the way I haven’t made any money yet ) lol … !!!    I have found the best place in Florida to get Art Supplies http://www.facebook.com/KeetonsOnline

   Thanks for reading … I tried to get everything in … but there is so much that has happened within the last 2 months, And you don’t want to be here all night reading and I don’t want to be here all night typing … 🙂

Soooo Come back and Follow My Journey !!

    Well Joesph, I was very interested to hear how you followed your intuition to go to sunny (rainy) Florida lol!…I think following your intition is a huge part of being discovered since I believe that our essence really holds the big picture and can guide us from this point..so kudos to you for listening and having the courage to follow through…you deserve all the good oportunities coming your way and you will undoubtably be very successful in art business.

    Hi Joseph, I’m delighted to find your blog. It’s funny and very interesting to read about your life – knowing you as a wonderful artist. And – yes, we are getting a hand from “the Big Spirit” now and then. I will follow happily the news also in your more private life – even you have the more easy way: my blog – if I want it be understood also from friends outside of Germany I have to translate it all . . . lol
    Beautiful done, have a wonderful weekend, Sylvia
