This year I am focusing on developing the business side of being an artist. I have been developing a better records system and have all of my paintings entered into a spreadsheet. I am planning on signing up for a sales tax id, in anticipation of lost of sales. This weekend I am attending a "Mastering the Business of Art" workshop taught by Jill Banks, a successful local artist whose work I have been following.
The holidays were a joyful mix of traveling, family, celebration. We went to see both sets of grandparents and enjoyed both the farm and the beach. It was a little cold over all but we did have a few warmish dry days in both locations.
One of my presents was a plein air easel. It was so exciting to go out and paint on site, what a difference this easel makes.
