Do you find you always keep making the same mistakes over and over again? Well perhaps its just me!!!
I am enjoying painting again, I don't mean a little bit I mean REALLY enjoying it, I started with the ACEOs and I did really well. I wasn't interested in selling I just loved doing them. Then I painted bigger and wow, I can't get enough of splashing the paint around and experimenting, not always successful, but then thats the point isn't it! Isn't it????
They started to sell and very well too and here I am so desperate to get out of my dead end boring rut of a job, I started to think this was it, I could push and realise my life long ambition and work for myself. So the last few weeks I keep churning the little ACEOs out and keep listing them, whether I am happy with them or not, craving the next sale and the next...
Then these last couple of days it hit me, this is not what I want, where's the joy of that! If I carried on promoting and selling and just making them to make money that then just makes another boring dead end job and a few months down the line I will be looking for something new, as always in my head the grass will be greener, elsewhere! This is always my problem, never being in the here and now, always trying to push into something that I think will be better, but it never is!
So what's the plan, well actually there isn't one. I have been an unsuccessful planner, so nows the time to change. However I do know I don't want to just churn any old rubbish out, just to make a bit of money. So from now on it wont get listed unless I think its good. I will continue experimenting and painting and try and take it where it wants to go instead of forcing it to go where I think it will make me the most profit. If it sells, brilliant, if not I will try not to care and just continue to try to stay in the here and now and love what I am doing.
