Well yes it was supposed to be a monthly blog - but....
Gone are the days, when as an artist all you really needed to do was to paint to be able earn a reasonable income. Now my professional practice is composed of 80% other stuff like : photographing artworks, electronic competition entries, maintaining my web, facebook, instagram & Linkedin accounts, seeking advice and learning about PR & marketing, networking just to name the important bits. Then add to all that keeping ahead of chores for a 2 acre block and family life.
Maybe I should base a series of paintings on the issues that get in my way of painting!
2019 is shaping up to busy, two group exhibitions planned, possibly a market in April. I will be continuing to develop my Journey Series, a few pieces based on the Bibbulmun Track and the highlight being July 2019 I will be celebrating my 20th arty year as the The Artful Flowe.
Merry Christmas Arty peoples.
