“The chief cause of failure and unhappiness is trading what we want most for what we want in the moment”
In addition to a bunch of publishing opportunities, working on my store, and a huge spectrum of other activities — I have been trying to finish up a ton of pieces in my studio, so I can be stocked on paintings, assemblages and other handmade items to sell this fall — an area, I’ve been a bit slack on the last few months! I have tons of finished pieces, all ones I’m excited about, but it’s just such a pain to photograph them, i put it off…and off… and off… well, no more!
This of course has led to cleaning through my studio, and I am slowly photographing some older pieces I had set aside to re-work. For some reason or another, these are pieces I am not totally happy with, and don’t feel good about selling, but realistically — I won’t rework them – so out with the old, in with the new!
However, I still think they each serve a purpose, and simply cannot stand to toss them away! I created an “Art for Trade” set on Flickr — and will be adding to it as I can, so be sure to check back often… there’s a handful of items in it right now, and if you would like to trade for one of them– give me a shout!
Well, back to the grind I go! – Chrysti
(boy oh boy does it feel good to knock all these lil’ things off my to-do book!)
