I'm Still Kicking Around

(Artwork by Artist Kelly Watts 2013)
It is so ridiculous that I can't even keep up with my blog.  I mean I am home every single day, what's my problem?
I love sharing my artwork with you and I love receiving your lovely comments...
but to be completely honest with you all...
I am fighting the fight of my life with this Fibromyalgia/Hypermobility of my Joints!
So, my posts are few and far between... for that I am really sorry.
I haven't been following my lovely blogger friends because I do not have the energy... for that I am really sorry too.
For now I will share with you what I have been able to accomplish;
The above piece was done on a book page.  I have been creating art on them because they are smaller and easier for me to handle.  I have discovered that I love the texture of the pages and they hold and blend color so beautifully.
(I use my Copic Markers on these pages)
I have had the occasional request for art... the above piece was requested by a dear friend of mine for her lovely daughter Bella.  It is meant to be an affirmation piece with all her daughters affirmations around her.
This took me a long time but this is what I create my art for...
If I can help make one girl feel better about herself in any way, well then I am all for it!

I have had one of my first 'custom order' requests with my art piece "Time To Bloom".  My customer requested that I adhere this piece to an art journal.
This was a first for me, I have never created an art journal with my art work before and I wasn't sure how it was going to work.
It turned out awesome and is now ready to go in the mail.
My customer is gifting it to a friend for her graduation!
Great idea!
Once again, this took me a long time to prepare, but I did it!
I accomplished a few things!  Yay for me!
I am thankful for the times when I am okay to put an order together, or to make someone smile with my art work.
To me it means I am still useful, I can still be used by God to bring joy.
God is good all the time!
I pray you are all having a wonderful, lovely week.
Hopefully I will be back soon.
Many hugs and blessings
