I started thinking about my “2013 Art Business” and I thought I would look at the paintings I sold this year. It was a pretty good year for me (new work, old work & commissions!), so I am trying to set my goals for 2014. One thing I decided to do is try to do some art festivals. I feel right now that it’s the only way to really get my art seen around the country. The whole ‘trying to get into a gallery’ thing seems pretty impossible, unless you know someone and get an introduction. So, I have decided to submit to some of the better festivals around the country and ones in towns I would like to have my work in. We will see what happens, and I will definitely post my experiences here. In the mean time, studio tours, select shows and lots of social media will be it! Always working toward being a full time artist, and I WILL get there!
I do want to thank Gallery by Jeana Marino for believing in my work and helping me sell several of these pieces, which sometimes seems very difficult to do here in Austin!
BTW, if anyone has any great ideas let me know! 🙂 Always learning!
