I have been given some very good advice today. I have heard it before but think it is worth repeating. Treat my time in the studio as my "work". If I left my house to go to a job I would go every day and I would get there on time (I hate being late). So, I should treat my studio time as a job and not be late. Go everyday etc... If I was going to "work" I would not worry that the laundry wasn't done, the dishes were not done or any other random thing that I can distract myself with. At least not as I was supposed to be going to my "Job". I would probably get up earlier and do some house work or be just do a better job of managing my time. I know I would do this. The big trick is to allow myself to treat what I do as a "job". Of course, it is my best, most amazing job ever. I guess that's why it makes it so hard for me to think of it as work. Which brings me to my next adventure....
Etsy! I have an account which I had put two paintings on a very long time ago. I never did anything to actively pursue selling. I am not actually sure how you can go about selling on Etsy. I mean, I know the basic set it up etc.. but I don't have any idea how you get people to pay attention to what your selling. Also, I don't know the first thing about making prints or if I should just sell originals (which is my preference). I have a big learning curve, but I am really excited about it. And now that I wrote it here on my blog, it is out there in the Universe. Which means I better follow thru!
