I have done it, yes I did it! What have I done you ask? I’ll tell you in just a minute, but first a little background. When I returned to creating visual works
of art for my adult daughters back in February of 2017. My original purpose was to only draw and paint pieces for them. However, during research of
several instruction video’s on the YouTube service. I discovered video’s for artists marketing, and selling your art work on-line.

I consumed those video’s with a passion of a fanatic, and told my daughters about the idea of maybe starting a career as a professional artist.
Anyhow one video lead to another, and before I knew it, I enrolled in a professional artists career training course and was on my way to creating works of art for sale.

During a private coaching session with the coach. The question, a big thought provoking question was asked of me. “What do you want to do with
your art?” I said, that I wanted my art to touch people hearts, to touch they’re souls in the same manner as my old time radio programs. What motivates
me to keep my internet radio station broadcasting nostalgic old time radio programs for over 19 years is just that! Over the years I have received
thousands of e-mail letters telling me how my programming has saved lives and provided comfort and enjoyment. I wanted my works of art to do the same!

Now, lets fast forward to today. I have done it! I have accomplished that goal. My art has touched hearts, and peoples souls! My mother taught me to watch people’s actions and not what they say, very wise advice.

Before I started this artist journey, only a handful of people maybe (20) family and friends ever knew that I was an artist. After compiling the statistics from
the various artist platforms where my art appears. As of today, well over 100,000 people from around the world through the internet as viewed my
art work. If you search Clyde J. Kell Artist on Google, I am about three pages deep, and with an image search my art work comes up to the top.
Here’s the most exciting news! Since 2017, (35) people, has purchased, home decor products featuring my art, along with a few private
commission pieces.

The skeptic would say, that’s not a very large number. With regards to income not anything to brag about. But here is what excites me. I have images of my art work displayed across six internet platforms featuring my art on various home decor products and prints available for purchase.

The Six Artists Internet Platforms The original purpose was only to introduce my art to the world. If someone purchased a print or product. I told myself, that’s a bonus, because the royalty payment is only a few dollars.

However, out of the thousands and thousands of artists displayed on these platforms, a stranger picked my art! People have purchased blankets, prints, tapestries, pillows, wall clocks, t-shirts, dresses, women scarves, and tote bags. Yes, how personal can you get? An adult woman, purchased a dress with one of my art designs! I’ve done it! My art has touched the heart and soul of a stranger. Another human unknown to me ordered an apparel or home decor item featuring my art. You have no idea as to how much satisfaction, and heart warming that brings me. How it motivates me to continue creating art.

Something that I always admired about the American artist Thomas Kinkade, is his art touched the heart of millions of people around the world. Kinkade’s art is everywhere on all types of home decor products. Members of my own family love his art work.

I have no allusion’s to compare myself to Kinkade. But, I think I’m on the right path to achieving the same goal! What do you think?
