I am going to show you something I wouldn't normally.
This is a painting that I just can't get to work. It was suppose to be an idea for a Christmas card, but its just not coming together, and I am not really sure why. I have spent a lot of time on it and it still looks wishy washy.
I am not however going to throw it away Its something I try never to do, as I know I will go back to it, at a much later date and either know what to do or put it away again, until another time.
I have been busy online this week as just because I have the studio now, I think its important to keep as many revenue streams going , especially with the winter coming as I think people will be reluctant to come out to the centre in the rain and snow. So I have signed up for a virtual stall for the brilliant Craftfest on Creative connections. Hopefully you can click on the link below and it will take you there. I will remind you nearer the time.
I have my first private lesson today. It was a daft day for me to arrange it, but I think if they want to continue I will have to find a better day as Sunday afternoon seems to be the best day a the centre for visitors. However saying that, then Wednesday was my best day ever for sales.
I had a shock as well yesterday as we sold all 4 of our Halloween decorations. I really didn't think they would do well at all, but there you go, it was obviously worth trying.
The workshops are not booking up as quick as I had hoped but I really need to get on and do some decent advertising, so I think thats what I will concentrate on over my 2 days off.
