Yesterday I spoke of needing to take this creative spring energy (in the northern hemisphere) and transform it into new works of art. Part of the balance that I need to be honing better is making more time to hang out in the creative process.

The art of marketing art is the other part of the equation that needs to be balanced. (Did I ever mention that I was a math major until I changed to art?) I am very excited to have now opened stores in both Etsy and ArtFlock these last few weeks.
Online marketing has been something that I have wanted to pursue for a long time – but I didn’t really know how to start. I have had a simple store in my website for a couple of years, but in a clumsy format. I have gotten a few sales from the site but it is not yet set up to be as easy as it could be.
In these last few weeks I have become able to accept payments through PayPal. I hadn’t realized that someone could pay with credit cards through PayPal even if one doesn’t have a PayPal account. Today I became PayPal verified. I am very excited about having the finances for e-commerce now set up.
I am adding more to my galleries at the online stores. Also, I need to figure out how to best change my site to implement my shopping cart and make life easier for my collectors.

Im glad to see you moving right along. I love this flower design. It’s one of my favorite palettes, anyway.
