Artist…When? Artist…. Now!

I claim to be an artist.

I think of myself as an artist, I’ve been practising my artist intro.

I have a BA Hons degree.

I can draw and paint….oil paint on paper

I can make textiles..weave,spin fibres,print,knit,crochet,dye…

I can sew cloth-pretty much anything..handbags, hats,dresses,trousers,curtains, cushions,quilts, banners….

So the indication is there.

Yet do my actions match my words?

Do I live/breathe/make/create art ….YES….. on a regular self sustaining £$£ basis?..No

No. I try sporadically, have flurries of £$£ activity and all the while at the day job I think about what I will do When….what will happen When...I plan, I prepare,take classes, visualise my future artist life When…..

So now as I go through the who,why,what checklist.. the When has to be NOW!

Because as my grand-daughter and I sing

‘Enjoy yourself, while you’re still in the pink..( our favourite colour) Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think…..’

WHEN? NOW!  and is Why  I am taking art marketing  lessons.
