Well, I have been waking up early and working. So far, so good. I like having the rest of the day to not worry about getting out to the studio. I find that ideas come a lot easier too. This I think will work well for me. It also helps if I let the kids stay up later as they sleep until later in the morning.
I had some really good news the other day. I found out I was accepted into the Skating with Scissors show which is September 19. I am really excited. This will be my first event with my encaustic paintings. I'm a little nervous as I have to make things for the show and my etsy shop, but I have lots of time so I should be fine. I also sold something yesterday which is way cool. My second piece sold. It feels really good to sell something again. I feel like I will get my momentum at some point so if I can sell something that is good for me.
I made a new piece this morning that is above. I like it. I am still learning how to take photos of my pieces. The color balance is a little more difficult for me. I am noticing that a lot of my pieces have a blueish tint to them. I am taking them outside in natural light so I don't know where the tint is coming from. Anybody out there have any advice for how to get rid of it? I have been trying to take the blue out with Photoshop, but I would like to have it removed when I actually take the picture.
