After many hours in front of this here computer, I am now deliriously tired and sporting a cracking headache. Not only that, but after wrangling with my art,business, and image files, I’ve come to the conclusion that it is all a mess. To put it nicely.
But there is hope. I am currently reading two books: “Taking The Leap” by Cay Lang, and “I’d Rather Be in the Studio!” by Alyson Stanfield (who writes the art biz blog, over there in the sidebar). They have very similar information, but are written in different styles. I think they compliment one another rather well, so I’ve been hopping from one to the other, and comparing advice. They have good information about setting goals, getting organized, approaching different markets, and prioritizing. Exactly what I am needing.
The result of my hours on the computer is that I’ve managed to track down, extract, and format images of paintings I have here in my studio. I’ve updated my Artspan page to reflect artwork I currently have for viewing and sale: nests and encaustic paintings. Just click on the Artspan link in the sidebar under “My Artwork”.
Now, if I could just get the rest of those files organized…..
