Show Your Work

This past year I have been lucky and unlucky enough to have sold a number of pieces. The Lucky part is HEY I’m an artist and it feels good to sell artwork. The unlucky part is that I sold them as I was getting ready for two shows. I felt they were going to be the centerpieces of the show. That’s when it struck me. I’m not setting up a museum so that the art can be viewed. I’m trying to sell my work.
Somewhere along that long line of chasing the show and dealing with a very slow economy I lost site of what I was doing.  Sure I want people to see what I’m doing and appreciate my visual voice but I also want them to have the work in their homes. So I guess what I’m saying is take a breath, show your work and enjoy the results.
