The past few days I’ve put the brush down and started changing the way I do things here in the studio. Since the beginning of the year I’ve been focused on building a body of art work with web promotion as a second priority. Currently I have 68 paintings sitting here around me and there is little room to walk. So while taking the time to rest and allow my creative endurance to recuperate, a clipboard has been sitting on my lap as I plan a balanced weekly schedule for the remainder of the year.
I’m always going to bias painting over promotion. I do enjoy the latter but I need visual reminders to devote time to keeping up with regularly updating my blog with progress pictures like the one below and beginning to put the majority of this years work up for sale.
There are only a few pieces up for sale at the present moment since there has been a long internal debate on how exactly to make my work available. Weighing the positives and the negatives while experimenting with eBay, ETSY, and my own blog store, the decision arose to make a presence on all three.
