I think Autumn is a good time for thinking and re-evaluating things. Of course, right now in the southern hemisphere it is Spring – and that is a fantastic time for starting new things. So, all around the world, we are again in transition.
Autumn Ruminations, Digital Â© Diane Clancy
I spent yesterday getting my digital paintings that I have created over the 5 months organized and accessible. I am trying to make life more manageable here. The last couple of months have been consumed with a couple of big projects for clients and that part of the business has slowed down a bit.
This gives me a much needed rest and a chance to think about what I really need to do. What do I need to do in my life? What is working well in the business? What is not working as well? Is the blog working well? Are there changes I need to make?
I have my online shop CafePress where you can find my paintings on mugs, totes and tiles. Also I have my Etsy Shop where some of my cards and prints are for sale. I am thinking about selling the ACEOs I made the other day there. At my website you can order any of my work as cards or prints. I can send you an email bill by PayPal if you like and they handle the financial transaction.
I think I am suffering from a feeling that I am not a very good artist at the moment. It is very tempting as an artist to judge myself by sucess and how many people buy my work. I know I need to market more or differently or maybe be patient with what I am doing. Clearly, this is a good time for more evaluating!
