I am trying very hard to get myself geared up for a big year of Art! I am so brimming with excitement and ideas at what I want to explore in the year ahead. It is a bit of a case of too many projects too little time, but lets see what I can cross of the list.
For starters, I downloaded some software to help me keep track of all my work. It is an inventory software that allows me to record each piece, with an image, and then details about size/materials and sale information (who, when) if needed. I have started loading the paintings onto the inventory, and will slowly plug away at that. I guess that comes with trying to be professional about my art. I had started in excel, but it just didn't have the scope that I wanted.
My next uni subject after the horrible one I am currently doing is a sculpture subject, so finally I hope to start working with ceramics. I am planning on somehow taking some of my painting ideas into small ceramic pendants.
What next...well, I have ordered some permaset fabric paint. So many people have commented that my paintings would look great on fabric, that I plan to do just that!!! I will be experimenting in the upcoming months with fabric paintings, for cushions and serviettes. Look forward to seeing my experiments unfold! And if all goes well I am taking the outcomes of those experiments onto Etsy, and to the markets.
So, it is going to be a big few months at least, but I am hopefull for a big year. Having sold a couple of paintings in the last month, I am hoping that that is a good sign. It's sign enough for me at least :) Yay.
Happy new year folks. Nice chatting with you.
