    Finally taken the leap...

    So Monday, I finally chucked my job in.

    Hadn't been working out for a while, I wasn't happy working there (and travelling up to four hours a day if the traffic was ****) and didn't give a monkey's, and that must have been obvs to the boss, who was more than happy when I asked if I could leave asap. I'm lucky in that I've got an incredibly supportive wife, who is going to look after the bills while I try and get a new venture off the ground.

    I'm taking the opportunity to finally try and make a business out of my automotive art, rather than just ****ing about with it. I work in oils and paint a wide variety of subjects but I'm focussing on cars as they're my first love. I'm in the middle of putting a new website together but if you'd like to check my work out, and you're on Facebook, check me out at https://www.facebook.com/wheelsoncanvas

    Cheers,

    Anth.

    Good luck with your new venture, you've done what many would love to but don't have the bottle (myself included).

    Thanks both - remains to be seen whether my bonny pictures will pay the bills but there’s only one way to find out isn’t there?

    Well done Anth and your work is stunning ! I personally know someone who did exactly the same as you (you and almost everyone on here will have seen their work) and that person has never looked back. I wish I could tell their story on here as it is a proper 'Rags to Riches' scenario. I know it from their side and the chap who encouraged the person to 'go for it'. True talent will succeed and you have that in spades!

    Thanks all, I really appreciate it! I've had a week off to get my head together and start sorting things out, but it's back out with the brushes tomorrow night with a vengeance
