I think I'm really starting to get a hang of this blogging thing! It's a lot of fun. I'm a tad addicted at this point. I have a feeling I'm starting to spend a bit too much time on the computer and not enough time painting. Not good! But I have been networking like crazy... which is part of the biz, right?

Some positive feedback on my artwork

During the past 3 months I've been selling my art on I wanted to share some of the feedback on my artwork by customers and admirers.....

"Your painting is awesome and look forward to hanging in my house!"

"i love your work, this is my first time using this site and your work really stood out to me. i look forward to receiving 'Manner'. thank you and take care."

"Thank you so much for a gorgeous piece of art. It arrived in perfect condition and was exactly what I had expected, if not more. You were very professional and prompt. I especially appreciate you sending me all of the additional photos. Thanks again and I think I'm going to try to find some more wall space in my house! Good luck with your business here at Etsy."

"I'm in the market for a large canvas of abstract art and have found myself drawn to your painting "Sagine". It evokes a very soothing and yet vital energy as look at it. It's a fantastic piece and I would like to have it in my home. I have the perfect place for it. "

"Sensational experience. Deeply moving art at a great value along with great seller integrity and communication."

Beautiful! The colors are even more alluring in person. Great seller, fast shipping. Will definitely be back for more."

"+++VERY POSITIVE EXPERIENCE!+++ Chaanda is such a talanted artist! Extremely professional, generous, kind and customer focused. Working with her on this piece was so much fun! I inquired about her doing a commissioned piece and after sending a few photos of the room; I had a beautiful piece of art hanging in my home in less than two weeks! I never expected the process to move so quickly! The painting in person far exceeded any expectations I had from the photos she emailed during the process. I could not be any happier with the results! I am honored to hang Chaanda's work in my home and would recommend her to anyone!"

"wonderful painting. great communication. shipped quickly."

"I love this piece of work! It is great. It looks beautiful and the colors are fantastic."

"Chaanda is awesome--she's sweet, funny and her artwork is beautiful!! The paintings look even better in real life than in the pictures, and I will definitely purchase from her again."

"This was a commission piece, and Chaanda was so great to work with on it. She made sure I was completely happy with it before shipping it out, and she finished it much quicker than I had expected. Y'all better buy something from her on Etsy while you can, because she's going to be famous one day!!! :)"

"Yes, i received it in excellent shape. It was nicer than expected, i really
like it. I just bought a second home in Florida - a bit north of you in
Vero Beach. I look forward to using some of your work there. You are a
talented artist."

Artwork Slideshow

This is my very first post!

Well here I start on my blogging journey with not a morsel of knowledge on how it's done, why it's done or it's benefits. I started because I was told it's important for my new artwork business. It's important to promote yourself in the bloggosphere, they say. So to flourish my new found love, painting, I will educate myself on blogging and increase my awareness of the wide, wide world of blogging!!

I have been painting for almost a year now. It fell into my lap less than a year ago, after a few health scares. I needed something cathartic to lift my spirits and so I decided to take a brush to paint. The rest is history really. I never put the brush back down. I have had no formal training, I only know what looks good and feels good to me. I paint entirely from feeling and inspiration!

Ok so this is my first shot at blogging. As told by others in the biz... you HAVE to have a blog. Really?? Well I've been doing some minute research as I write this and it looks as though everyone is right... and EVERYONE has a blog!

My true goal is to promote my artwork, network with other artists, chat with my awesome customers and meet new people who have a passion for art! I'm hoping I can write a little something each day.

I hope that I can also inspire others with my artwork and my story. I've been painting for almost a year and have had mild success so far. It's been a sensational ride and I'm obsessed with painting and selling my paintings on-line. It's really a unique experience that I've grown to love!

My main on-line site right now is Etsy. My store address is I also have my own site, I've had great success with Etsy. I love the Etsy community. Everyone is so darn sweet and professional. I've met some AMAZING customers! And amazing artists.

I also belong to an Etsy Team called Interior Design Etsy Team. Go check out our site: . We have some amazing talent in our group. We were created to draw attention to Artists on Etsy who create anything to decorate the home. Our main goal is to inspire and cross-promote each other.

Well... cheers to my first blog... and to many more!! Thank you to all my customers and fans for all your amazing support!
