|another way to embarrass sheep|
I met today with a friend who was designing the email version of the poster for the eblast the gallery is sending out. She was also kind enough to design my gallery card! She is a talented painter in her own right and has been exploring the world of design too. I love visiting with her and hearing her insights.
I am currently pouring over catalogs to figure out what frames to order, as this month is all about framing and matting work! And there is a lot of work to frame and mat....I am trying to not let it be a taunting task.
Ways I worked on not feeling overwhelmed today:
*Clean work room, well cleared up a little
*Make orange flavored sugar cookie dough for tea cookies before 8am
*write out a market list so we can eat tonight
* avoid laundry
* window shop on etsy
Ok now to run some errands before making dinner and writing a cover letter for my mailings.
All of these are functional tasks that I mix into my daily work as an artist. I never realized how much work was involved with being an artist...I mean admin work is never really spoken about and I can never remember ever being taught about any of it in school either. So I am learning and enjoying the ride as I take on new and exciting personal challenges.
that sounded hokey....but whatever it is true, but maybe not well stated.
ok now I am babbling and avoiding my things I do to avoid being overwhelmed list....
