Sometimes it's better to leave things alone...


Forgotten Rose- Original sold...prints available here


I have been messing with my settings on here and somehow lost my social media links. I'm trying to get them back and am going to add them to the top tab buttons. In the meantime...here's and article published about my work on ArtPromotivate. I'm going to make a tab specifically for all my featured articles so they're all in one spot. Thanks for hanging in there with me as I get this all figured out!

Some little pink roses and...





I'm making some changes to my site here and just want to keep you all updated. Plus...I want to share this little one with you. I took the leaf on left out and will have it list in my shop soon. It's an 8x8 oil on canvas for $125.

New florals blooming in my studio...



Yellow Polka dots and Pink 12x12 inch oil on canvas


I have new floral oil paintings blooming in my studio! I love pink peonies and I think the polka dots are pretty cute.

I have one more I finishing up today, then I think I may do another landscape. I'm currently working on getting my website again. I have always used this as my website and had my other one connected here, but blogger doesn't have as much control over SEO's as Wordpress does. You may have remembered I started a new one back in 2013 (I think that's when it was...time flies!) When my life was disrupted, and I was uprooted from my home in 2016, I neglected to pay the domain name renewal and lost it. I'm paying the price now, as it was sold to someone who is impersonating me. I've contacted the web site owners and servers to have them shut it down and may contact the local police. This is my business, and even more, my life. I take it very seriously. The strangest thing is the website has an email that goes to a woman in Maryland who has the same name as I do...even the same middle name! Crazy and it is she's also an oil painter, as of a year ago. I've spoken with her and she seems very nice. She has also sent an email to the register site demanding they take it down. Our art is quite different, and I'm pretty sure you can tell if it's an original "J. Beaudet", but I don't want there to be any confusion or uncertainty about who you're dealing with. I live in California and always have, she's lives in DC or Maryland (the east coast). I have never lived there and never will. I have been painting and selling my art on Etsy since 2009. Click to see- My first painting I sold on Etsy (besides one to my mom)

I sell my work in my Etsy shop and sell prints on Fine Art America . I have also been accepted to Saatchi and I have my work on Artfinder   I've worked hard to get my name branded, and as you may know, I started this blog with that name "my life as a starving artist". While I may never have gone hungry, and I'm grateful for that, I do everything on a very tight budget (like mostly free...as in, I do it myself) I appreciate all of you who have bought my work over the years and allowed me to continue to create art. I can't do this without you! Seriously.
I am thinking about changing my name but not sure how that would be. I'm engaged and my last name could change when we're married. I don't think anyone will have his last name! Anyway, I'm still plugging along and Love that you are still with me! Thank you :)
