It’s been a long time since I’ve worked on any of my quilling mini canvases. I will confess- one downfall of being interested in so many types of art and constantly trying new things does mean that there is less time for my more signature art work. However, I can tell from my work on these mini’s that I am still growing and evolving as an artist- the things I’ve been learning and practicing are having a definite influence in my work.
I have a wall of art for sale at a local shop, and last week I was told that there was a lady who has been purchasing several of my mini’s, and had requested a few more of a certain color. She especially loved my quilling mini canvases, and wanted a couple more in purple and teal. Well, I got right to work and I hope she loves them as much as I do! I always get nervous when someone makes a special request, because I know that I do evolve as an artist, and my mind and skills are in different places when I create now as opposed to when I created before, even if it was just a few months ago.
I think she’ll be happy with them, though. They are, after all, Anjuli Johnson originals. 🙂 Plus, I can’t tell you how awesome it is to have a patron who loves your work and keeps coming back for more. What more can an artist ask for? Maybe a few more people just like her… 🙂
