I just closed down Paige’s Painted Floorcloths this morning.  It was bittersweet.  Its where it all began for me about 7 years ago.  Running that little business gave me the confidence to keep on with my artistic endeavors.  It introduced me to a whole world full of great artists/mentors who have taught me so much over the last couple of years.  My first mentor was Kelly Rae Roberts, who is an amazing artist and business woman.  You might not know who she is but I know you have seen her paintings before.  They are everywhere.  I took her business course for artists, Flying Lessons, which taught me so much about how to start selling art.  I took Flora Bowley’s painting course online and it really changed the way I look at creating.  It was all about letting go and just going with the flow.  She taught me to let go of the outcome of the painting and that the process is what is really important.  Other women who have taught me so much over the years are Jane Davies, Alisa Burke, Tracy Bautista and Donna Downey.  They all have online courses and are all amazing teachers.  You should check them out!

And as always you can find my latest works for sale on my Etsy site.

About PainterPaige

I am an abstract painter living in the Washington, DC suburbs. I have always loved to create. I won my first art award in 3rd grade for my “Friends with Animals” poster. The prize was $3 and my poster was hung at city hall for a month. It was a huge deal back in elementary school. I started my first business, Paige’s Painted Floorcloths, in 2006 where I hand-painted canvas floorcloths and sold them on my website, paigespaintedfloorcloths.com and at local art shows. My site is still up and custom floorcloths are still available although I gave up selling at shows a couple of years ago. This past year, I picked up a paintbrush and fell in love with painting all over again. This time I decided to stick to abstract painting on canvas. I am loving every minute of it!
