State of the Bad Art Address 11/11

When I started Always Coming Soon, the intention was to use my art as my personal form of worship – using the tools, talent and motivation that the Father has given me to give glory to His name. And while I haven’t produced any new art for sale in my Etsy store (partially because I’ve been lazy – partially because I have been blessed with the opportunity to work on quite a few neat commissions instead), the focus and mission are still the same. The day my focus changes is the day I stop creating art.

With the holidays coming up, I have been thinking about running some specials on the remaining items in my Etsy store and getting to work on some new items to add to it. I would like to offer my art to anyone who thinks it would be a good gift for someone who likes bad art for the holidays while making a few extra bucks to help buy my momma something for Christmas – or buy those chairs we want for our living room – or buy a new tattoo (I want my next one so bad I almost can’t stand it!)

But that’s not what I’m going to do. Not now, at least.

I was alerted yesterday to the sad news that a good friend of mine from high school (who I unfortunately haven’t spoken with since then) lost his house to a fire. A house that served as a huge stepping stone in his life as well as a home for his wife and son (no one was at home during the fire, thus everyone is okay – physically).

While I genuinely feel that it’s worth praise that all they lost were just “stuff,” I also realize how difficult it is to start over, especially when you think you’re doing okay.

That’s why I want to help.

For the remainder of this month and for all of December, I am knocking off 10% of the price of all of my paintings and giving you FREE shipping. Every penny that I make from the art will go to the family. I will also give 50% of any commissions to them as well. I hope to add a few new items to the store over the next couple of weeks so be on the lookout for those, too.

Don’t think of it as a charity. Don’t think of it as something “good” that you’re doing. Think – and know – that it’s what we’re called to do as the bride, as the body and as the followers of the Shepherd.
