Dara, this is beauteous...Love it!
Dara - Over 30 days ago
Thank you Cirrelia! ;-D It is one of my favorites so far..I hope you have an awesome day!
Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
Mine too! It's Friday...Yay! :)
Dara - Over 30 days ago
Thank you! I rarely know what day it is..not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing..;-)
Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
I've always kept close track of time...Don't know why...I guess I learned it in school...
Dara - Over 30 days ago
It all depends on what is going on at the time i guess but sometimes i just run on " Indian Time "- basically whenever I get around to it ha ha! ;-) I am very organized though and reliable so if/when i have someplace to be or a deadline I make sure I am there or it is done on time if not before..;-)
Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
Yeah, I can tell that about you...Being prompt is a nice quality to have, especially when working with clients :) I hope you're having a stellar week, dear! :))
Dara - Over 30 days ago
Yes, it is-reliability and common courtesy seem to be rare anymore-at least where I live...:-) I have been on here for some time and still not got one job from it.Maybe because I am not on a lot and have a small network or because I have the free account-not really sure but wish i would get something to justify my keeping my account. Not sure if it is working for others-it must be as i see some people constantly working so not sure what the deal is..
i hope you have an awesome week too Cirrelia! :-)
Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
I have gotten maybe 6 jobs in almost 4 years. That is a really low level. I admit the competition is stiff, but the nimber of jobs offered is very low in writing and translation. I get most of my enjoyment out of networking with others. I understand that many people are working off here, but, I wonder if they are recruiting employers to come here. Anyway, I have other options that are keeping me working. I hope you do not consider leaving because we will miss you terribly :) Hope you are having a nice weekend, dear Dara!! :)
Dara - Over 30 days ago
Oh,wow,I was hoping you had a lot more than that. You have been on here a long time.
I do not come on here much though-even less than I did before. Mostly just when I get a notice someone messaged me or did kudos or something so I can respond. I have my art on so many art sites but there is a lot of competition and distractions on all of them. I just recently made a little website just for my art-still have some stuff to do on it, and have Facebook more for my music but recently re-created my art page on there also. It is all too much to keep up with though.:-\
That is nice of you to say Cirrelia! Thank you! I would miss you too! ;-)
I am rushing to get a drawing done for someone-hate to rush but sometimes it is just that way-short notice and have to get it done by tomorrow so my weekend is gone before you know it. Not that there is much different for me between weekdays and weekend days haha!
I hope you are having an awesome weekend too Cirrelia!

Hey Dara...you know it's true what they say---"Good things come to those who wait!" On this site, waiting is all I seem to do. I have decided to spread my wings into other areas. It's okay with me because I often find that when one door closes, another one opens...I've seen a lot of people come and go on here...I guess I enjoy it too much to go...Don't rush your drawing...make the client wait..ha ha...I do that too sometimes. Take care my dear! :)
Dara - Over 30 days ago
I have heard that also-for years-and still waiting ha ha! My client needed this drawing as he was leaving and needed to take it to his friends so..got it done! ;-) Still have to have it delivered then I will relax. ;-)
Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
YAY! Victory! I bet your client will be so happy to see your artwork. You're so good! :)
Dara - Over 30 days ago
Aww Thank you Cirrelia! it was actually for a gift for his friends-he loved it and was so nice. he was taking it yesterday on a plane to visit his friends and give it to them.
That Client was local-not from this site ha ha! ;-)
Have a great day Cirrelia!

I love doing animal portraits and celebrity portraits and I do Mural work as well-either directly on walls or on canvas so they can be moved from room to room or home to home.
