Kitchen sink/ kitchen backsplash, same difference.
Yep, there was a time there I was going to be an outsourced consultant for No-Name-Kitchens-and- Constructions for their tiled backsplashes. They would do all the construction and installation, and I’d paint that Tuscan landscape on the tiles. I was beefing up my portfolio for a display in their showroom, and then I don’t know what happened. I went to deliver everything and they said something like “Oh nevermind. But if you want to keep trying, you can come back in 6 months and maybe we’ll have something for you.”
I’m so glad that chapter in my life is over. Get it? (I’m a librarian.) And now with this great career I’m always stimulated and I’m never really stressed out AND I can choose to make what I want to make.
In honor of new beginnings, I’m going to flashback to this oddball time of my life. I was also babysitting, coaching HS crew, and working for another artist. I basically just found ways to get paid for doing my interests and hobbies :)
