Going Mini-Viral {Day 25}


Good morning.

Yes, I’m still here and I’m still going. Something crazy (in my opinion) happened this week. I decided to try the time lapse feature on my iPhone. Wasn’t sure how it worked, never really looked at it. So I paint, while taking video with it, don’t edit it, don’t put music to it, throw it up on Instagram for fun: “hey, I tried this…it turned out ok”.

3 days go by.

Whoa, Nellie…
In those three days, at the writing of this post, the video has had 6,800 views. And I’ve gained 223 new Instagram followers.
Things I’ve learned:
1. You just never know
2. You people like your time lapse videos.

I did end up putting the full version up (Instagram only allows 1 minute) and I added some music. If you want to see what people were reacting to, here it is on YouTube.

I’m excited about having 700 follows, but a look at the artists I follow who have 50,000 and 70,000+ followers quickly puts it all back into perspective. Just keep painting girl, you have not even come close to arriving. You haven’t even pulled out of the hangar, yet.
