I haven't done this lightly, I do have another job, albeit a part time one but it doesn't involve any travel and I will have no responsibility, so no dealing with teenage girls who cry all day because their phone is broken. I start next Friday.
More importantly, I have huge swathes of time to fill with my painting. I'm probably going to try and produce some local seascapes at first to try and sell at one of the galleries near me. Not the usual water colours with pastel shades, these will be a bit different. I'll be using that to sharpen my skills a bit as I am a bit rusty. I will also design some slightly different card designs a'la fish on a bike and see if I can make some progress with those. I still will try and get some of the bigger paintings in galleries, I may revisit them first. I will try other stuff too, but this is the starting point.
Any other hints, tips and advice are also appreciated. All threats and warnings to the usual place, just send me a note.
I'm probably crazy for doing this.
