No, I'm not selling raffle tickets...I'm just reminding myself of the fact that art is really 50% creative work and 50% at a desk, emailing, making resumes, price lists and the like kind of work...which for me isn't such a big deal because I actually *like* doing that kind of stuff but some people abhor it (It's always a good day when you can use a word like abhor in a sentence...yes! And did I really quick just look up the definition of said word to make sure I was using it correctly in said sentence even though I already knew what it meant? You bet your ass I did ;) Anyway, I really think that the business part gives my brain a break from the creative part and the creative part gives my brain a break from the business part...and sometimes for me one fuels the other....making lists of projects I want to work on makes me excited to get in the studio and working on pieces gets me all excited about updating my website and whatnot (nerd much?).
All that said, today has been a business day that has made me super excited to get into the studio this week...Will be posting progress on two projects I have coming up. Yay!
Also, in case anyone was really excited about the chance of there being a raffle (though I doubt it)...no no no, make that to continue on the generosity and excitement of winning things (I won two things last week...2 THINGS!...Exciting!) I'll send 2 Flock birds (they get lonely if there's just one of them) to a randomly picked winner who comments below about their thoughts on art making vs. art business...(You need not be an artist to win...Check back on Friday for a winner...Be sure to include your email address so I can tell you if you are a fabulous winner in case you forget to check back...Commenting will close at 11:59pm on Thursday, May 6)
