I just stumbled upon this lovely article, which gives some great advice! I thought I would share it, because it is very inspiring and gave me some ideas to help get yourself out there as an artist! It is an article on the Windsor and Newton website.
The article talks about the challenges new artists face, and how what you can do to make it easier to get yourself seen.
To all those struggling, new artists out there:
You can do it! Don’t give up!
Just like any career, you need to research, research research. Know what your getting into, the troubles your going to face; and always look at every opportunity!!!
Sure, it’s hard. But what isn’t in life? 😉
I leave you all today with a picture I took, that I plan on painting. It is a very, very old truck which I think would be lovely in watercolor. It was taken up on a deserted hill- who knows how long it had been there! Simply amazing what nature can do.
So my craft show came and went this weekend, but it was so much fun! I met many nice people and vendors. Relief is the word of the day because of that feeling after a show- its over, and it went well! A lovely painting found a home,its always good to see them go to a good home 😉 There is a painting out there for everyone, sometimes it just takes a while!
With Christmas approaching I have added our November Newsletter! Are you making any hand-made gifts? If you missed the October Newsletter, you can see it here.
I would love to see some, feel free to post your crafts, ideas and questions below. I hope everyone’s holiday preparations are coming together, before you know it the big day will be here!
Stay tuned for more Christmas artsy treats.
Ive decided that the word of the day is Motivation, because that is what needs to happen to get all my crafts and paintings done for my craft show this weekend!! How do you all keep motivated? Please share!
