The first signs of spring...intrepid crocuses (croci???) still there after a 15 degree night and a pile of snow! I love these little harbingers of spring.
Amid the snows, it is time for show applications to go out for jurying, and time to create more new work. Lately I've found myself doing a lot of networking via Facebook, Yahoo! groups, my website and all of that.... and while I used to shun anything that vaguely looked like self-promotion, I've realized that these things are how we now do it, and unless I want to have my children dig through a studio full of art up to the ceiling when I die, I need to do it. Marketing is just another part of the process, and it takes time.
Off to do applications....or at least start on them....or go to the studio and play and later do applications.
Oh, you'll notice a new button off in the left sidebar. I just took an online class from Michael deMeng, and now that the class is over, many students want to stay in touch. Since I still had my Instant Inspiration Yahoo! group which had been inactive, I volunteered to use it for the group members who wanted to continue with a forum for exchange of ideas, art and support, as well for other artists who want to join. All mixed media/collage/paper/assemblage artists are welcome! Just click to join....
