i know i shouldnt compare myself to others because have no idea what their journey consist of. but sometimes its still hard.
another person on twitter says it perfectly: in order to make it as an artist you have to be at the right place at the right time. thats so true. ive done a few things that if i would of done them right the first time i may be in a better position than im in now. meaning being in the right venue at the atlanta gift show, instead of being in the wrong place for 3 years in a row and now i know i should of been in the handmade sectiom. oh well whatever. my journey is winding and i quess curvy.
i finished my 4 paintingsthat i have been working on for the last 2 weeeks. wow that took forever. now ive got to market and make things. i have some wholesale accounts in trying to fill for some local coffee shops and gift shops. okay so things arent so bad.
im trying to organize myself to apply for some upcoming shows thats a pain. i took pics this weekend so i can be ready to send stuff out on tuesday.
im always thinking of different things thati can do. so those of you who are artist and paint but dont have the resouces or time to make products, im offering my services to get a package of products to you. i make magnets, givingstones, prints, bookmarks pendants, notecards, posters 16x20. vintage boards. you can look on my website to seeif you are interested. im thinking of going intomy own manufacturing co. and make my own gift line and incorporte other artist and their designs to sell all over the us. kindof like Natural life if youve ever heard of them. but back to the package im charging 75.00 for a few of all the products more details just shoot me an email and definetly check out my website. it really makes a difference when your art is put into several different products for people to chose from. they will atleast buy something if they like your stuff, plus it gives them different price points.
okay so on another note my 2 year old is so busy im really spending alot of time keeping him occupied boys are nonstop. OMG work is a foreign work when he is at home and not in preschool. so all you artist that get to work with no interuptions take advantage. but all of us moms that do have the interruptions well when it comes down to it they do grow up fast and boy at two they are so cute. i could squeeze him over and over.
so to the artist that has everything going for her right now, which there is a certain one im talking about you have all the success right now but i woulnt replace it for my kids...she doesnt have kids so yes your journey might be a little different.....
