Hi I’m a South Carolina artist who made a one year commitment to paint every day and to post those paintings on my blogs. The first year came and went so fast I decided to go for another year…..So I painted a painting every day for the next year. Now, I’ll just paint!
A painting a day” My name is Shanti Marie. I make my living selling my art. As you can see (by my paintings) I live in a beautiful place not far from Lake Wylie South Carolina.. I paint small sized works of art everyday. If you’d like to find out more, and see a collection of paintings you can see my blogs at https://shantimarie.wordpress.com or http://shant-shantimarie.blogspot.com/ .
For a peek at my larger paintings or commissions go to http://h20color.wordpress.com
My biography and history of my art career can be found on my main website: www.shantimarie.com.
I’m very happy to say I have over 400 people visiting this blog each day. It didn’t start out that way and the first few days (August 2006) after I posted my entries, I would check and recheck the stats. I wanted to see how many folks were showing up at my blog and looking at my small works of art. I was so surprised that 50 or 60 people were looking at it each day I was jumping for joy. When it hit a 100 I was amazed, now I occasionally see 500 + and yes I’m still really shocked. Thank you for stopping by, without you I could not have grown as an artist. I paint everyday but now don’t always post everyday… Knowing you may stop by to see what’s new keeps me posting. This has encouraged me when I was down or unmotivated to paint. All artists needs an audience. I have met many other artists and have also cultivated a following. Another thing… Thank you if you have made comments or asked questions because this gives me valuable insight and feed back, both which have become precious to me. I think my work has improved by this daily ritual and it has made me more aware of my life and the passing of each day. Feel free to subscribe!
