Phew…after we loaded the truck, I came in and finished 2 more paintings…this is a close up of a tiny portion of one of them. We hit the road tomorrow morning for the Prairie Village Art Fair this weekend in Kansas City. I’ve been in SUPER ANNE mode which is neccessary to produce my Newsletter before heading out of town and pull everything together for the first show of the season: (getting my booth display and equipment all back together, packing
paintings, figuring out what stays and what goes and how to hang it.
Making price tags, getting portfolios, credit card machine, receipt
books, mailing list, bags, weights, and my brand new front Awning for
my Tent….woo hoo: additional shade!).
It’s almost a relief to just focus on one part of my business for a week….I’ve always felt that if I just chose one direction I could be really successful (and probably more sane) but for some reason I feel the need to be involved in all these different facets of art: the Art Fairs, Pet Portraits, Illustration, Licensing, Wholesale, my Design work for Animal Welfare Groups…did I forget anything? Some day I would love to have a business manager that facilitates all that ‘stuff’ so I could just do the creative part…know anyone like that?
Also edited and uploaded another video clip – this one is of me painting a recent pet portrait of Dudley & Murphy (above) for Stacy of ZuZuPetals. You can watch it on my Pet Portrait Blog.
It’s actually easier to upload video to Blogger than to Typepad…go figure.
