DARE GREATLY AND NEVER DOUBT
It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows achievement and who at the worst if he fails at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
~ Theodore Roosevelt From a speech given in Paris at the Sorbonne in 1910
A person who doubts himself is like a man who would enlist in the ranks of his enemies and bear arms against himself. He makes his failure certain by himself being the first person to be convinced of it. - Alexander Dumas

Commissions and Contests! :DUpdated: In progress update 10/20/15
Hello Everyone! I wanted to gather together a list of some of the contests and commissions available for anyone who might be interested! XD I will gladly update this if you have a contest or commission you would like added to this journal. Just let me know! XD
Now, because I know funds are tight for some people, the commissions are listed by starting price. Though, please, don't let this stop you from checking out artists on the higher range. Their art is worth the money!
Starting Price = lowest priced piece in artist's commissions - the price goes up from there.
= open commissions
= closed commissions
= highlighted artists
Please do not be upset if you do not have a star. Just because someone does not have one does NOT mean they aren't an incredible artist!
Please let me know if you notice something is different then what I have noted. I would really appreciate it!
Thank you to everyone who responded a
A short bio: I am a happily married mother of three beautiful children! God is first in my life and always will be! Outside of the home, I am a geriatric nurse. I love my job and feel very blessed to be a part of the lives of some very amazing elderly people. My job is so very rewarding! In addition, I am an obsessive reader, I love to write, play piano, and of course draw. My 2011 new years resolution was to stop saying "I wish I could draw" and to actually pursue it! And, I have drawn almost every day since! So keep at it all of you!! I still have sooooo much to learn, but I've also come a long way! Just check out my early work! I left it there to encourage myself and others!
And, lastly... Thank you so much to all the people who have been such an encouragement and support to me! It has really helped me keep going even when I feel so discouraged. Thank you!!
My sister has been a huge encouragement and help to me!! Make sure you visit her!! Her artwork is amazing!
