I can't believe it. They are all sold. The second piece took me ages. It was done in a very fine stitch. But, after all, I did it for fun and would never know where to store all these things and what to create out of them.
I couldn't make a living on this, but I am happy someone likes it and will use it. It is quite amazing, because for 30 years I have been living on other jobs because it seemed to be impossible to sell art, be it paintings or whatever. I did some custom portraits, but only one of my paintings was sold in an exhibition. Maybe it was because I just couldn't give them away. My fault. I have always loved "real" things a lot more than money. From the point where I got what I urgently need -- a heated place to live, food, medical care -- I don't care about money.
I published these things in order for you to use it as a kind of marketing research, as I try to find out in Etsy what other people have been able to sell.
