i’m learning the hard way, that being an artist can be tough! im not giving up yet…
my (now regular) once a month stall at Boneo was washed out the first time, better the second…
dont ask about the twilight market at richmond – lets just say that $5 doesnt buy you much these days!
last nights “invite to sell” Affordable Art Fair was also a wash out – pouring rain + street festival = poor attendance = next to no sales
my chin is held high, i think my art is nice!!! i am producing it from deep, deep down in my heart and soul and it is reflecting exactly what i want it to – earthy aussie colours combined with prints of significance (to me and others).
ive listed a couple of pieces on etsy, just to see what might be, my folio is ready for printing and i’ll be visiting a couple of local shops with it to see if they will take some work on consignment.
im excited to be building a new working relationship with a local historically significant site (cant say too much yet until things are a little more formalised) and ive booked an exhibition for july 2011. im also working on a big proposal for an arts festival which is VERY exciting. im always looking and chatting and very open to all opportunities that may come my way – i can’t carry huge, heavy dinner plates full of food for the rest of my life can i?!
