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….
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.
