Jessica Doyle is on Gawker!

Once upon a time I applied to become a Gawker Artist(s). And was approved for both an online gallery of art and also for displaying their rotating exhibit which encompasses all Gawker Artists in this blog’s sidebar (see below left). I submitted both the Sassy Sea Urchin and Sunflowering Times for their approval.

Today it went live!

To quote Gawker,

Gawker Artists promotes the works of artists of all media. Participating artists receive free profile pages and a select group have their images published on Gawker Media titles. When you spot one of these images, click on it to read about the artist or browse our collection by artist name, medium or location.

Liz Dimmitt is the curator for Gawker Artists. Thank you Liz! :)

Until then, I will continue living, creating and enjoying life all the while smiling wearing these sunglasses at night that I found on the ground this past Hallowe’en.

Cheers!

And just a note and BIG thank you to everyone who has wished me a Happy Birthday via Etsy, Facebook, Twitter and email! Etsy and Facebook go so far as to program a Happy Birthday message into your dashboard in celebration of your special day!

Secret #2 – Say, write, email or blog a thank you

These last few months are turning out to be some of the best and most memorable months for me in terms of art creation, exposure and hence gratitude. It’s so easy these days to become overwhelmed with emails, blog postings, comment moderation, facebook, flickr, features, etsy, galleries, friends, family, *dating and the responding to such. Throw into that mix, a few bad apples and I do become depressed or anxious at times as people or situations are not always what you want them to be. Occasionally, it can be down right nasty what people say to you.
