My artistic life is just that. A beautifully unusual way of life. I have spent months and more studying successful artists, art coaches, art marketing gurus, and art consultants. There are many things that I have learned over and over that one can do to be successful at making a living as an artist. It may be that I will do some or all of these things, but of late, I have become quite content with my life without worrying about selling.
I am enjoying my good fortune, and my blissful lack of stress. Enjoying the wonderful things that I own; my collection of art, Tupperware, jewelry and books. Enjoying my beautiful family, my friends, the newly remodeled kitchen, consuming yummy merlots, and watching summer movies. The state of the economy, and the state of the world, may be uncertain, but what is certain is that I am fortunate at this moment. I am thankful. I am doing my best to thoroughly be present with the goodness available to me for as long as it lasts!!
My kids are back in school now. I can go to my studio, look at the wonderful artwork I have done and love it. I have marvelous young friends helping me to continue my business forward. I am president of the local Burbank Art Association with an intelligent group of people, who are full of ideas, that will progress this club into the future. Wow. I am so fortunate to be living this life. I am completely blessed. Whee!
